(LifeSiteNews) – A Seattle school district has seen the number of students identifying as “non-binary” increase by 853% between 2019 and 2022.
Despite a significant decrease in student enrollment within Seattle Public Schools over the past few years, there has also been a major spike in students, from preschool through high school, identifying as “non-binary.”
According to data obtained by The Post Millennial, 53 students identified as “non-binary” in 2019. Three years later, the number has reached 505. Notably, Seattle Public Schools, which is the largest district in the state, also saw a drop in enrollment of more than six percent for the 2022-2023 academic year. During 2019, 55,417 students were enrolled. That number decreased to 51,608 in 2022.
“In 2019, there was 1 child in the preschool who identified as non-binary, 7 in kindergarten, 16 in 1-5 grades, and 10 in middle school,” the Post Millennial reported. “19 high school students identified as non-binary.”
A large childcare chain in the United States just fired a faithful Christian caretaker for refusing to read LGBT propaganda to children.
As reported on LifeSiteNews, Bright Horizons Children’s Center in California terminated the contract of Nelli Parisenkova for not reading LGBT-themed books to children as young as 1 year-old.
Parisenkova, a devout Christian who worked for the company for four years, requested to not read the books because they violated her deeply held religious beliefs.
Instead of tolerating Nelli’s Christian faith, Bright Horizons demanded she 'celebrate diversity' or leave. After refusing to comply with this unjust ultimatum, Parisenkova’s boss expelled her from the building, which forced her to walk 20 minutes in 96-degree heat to the bus stop where she had to wait another 45 minutes.
Parisenkova is now suing Bright Horizons Children’s Center for violating her religious freedom, and she needs your help to raise public awareness about this assault on her human rights.
Sign this petition today to tell Nelli Parisenkova that you stand with her and her Christian faith against the LGBT agenda being pushed by Bright Horizon’s Children’s Center.
Bright Horizons thinks it can bully devout Christians like Nelli into submitting to their leftist ideology. Do not let them get away with it! We all must take a stand to ensure these attacks on our shared Christian faith come to an end. Here are the plain and simple facts:
- No child should be brainwashed to believe that marriage is between two men or two women.
- No child should be told that boys can become girls, or that girls can become boys.
- No child should be indoctrinated with the erroneous belief there are more than two genders, or that people can choose their gender identity.
This is not education. This is propaganda.
Nelli Parisenkova was RIGHT to protect children from LGBT indoctrination and she was RIGHT to invoke her Christian faith in doing so.
SIGN THIS PETITION NOW to tell her she is not alone in this fight!
The total number of students who identified as “non-binary,” or neither male or female, was 53 in 2019.
“In 2022, there were 3 children who identified as non-binary in preschool, 16 in kindergarten, 89 in grades 1-5, 125 in middle school, and 272 in high school.”
These increases add up to a total of 505 students rejecting biology and embracing the LGBT agenda, which is continuously injected into public school systems across the country.
Within the past month alone, several studies have been brought to light, revealing the alarming increase in youth identifying as a gender other than their biological sex, many of whom also pursue hormonal and surgical interventions to “affirm” their “gender identity.”
On October 7, LifeSiteNews reported that data compiled by Komodo Health Inc. showed that thousands of American children between the ages of six and 17 are identifying as “non-binary” or “transgender.” Specifically, the number of youths diagnosed with gender dysphoria tripled between 2017 and 2021.
During the past five years in the U.S., at least 121,882 children were diagnosed with gender dysphoria – 42,000 of whom were diagnosed in 2021. Additionally, the number of those seeking “gender affirming care” through hormones or surgery has also increased.
Similarly, data has also showed that Montgomery County Public Schools, the largest district in Maryland, saw a 582% increase in students identifying as something other than their biological sex since 2019. These statistics were shared by the vice principal at one of the district’s schools, as previously reported by LifeSiteNews.
Last week, a video showed the head of the Boston Children’s Hospital gender clinic stating that cases and diagnoses of gender dysphoria have “skyrocketed” in recent years. The video also shows the pediatric endocrinologist admitting that so-called treatments such as hormone therapy can negatively impact fertility.
