The Pennsylvania Department of Education states that children as young at three years old can be identified as transgender, and lists “ne”, ve, and ze/zie as valid pronouns.
The website of the department also advises teachers to question students before they assume a student might prefer a pronoun.
“Some people choose to use gender neutral pronouns such as ne/ve, ze/zie, and xe. It’s best to ask .”
if you don’t have a preference for a student’s personal pronoun.
According to the website which is meant to serve as a guide to teachers, “binary” refers to “the flawed concept that there only are two genders: male or female”. “Gender expression/gender display” describes how we present our gender to others through external choices, such as (e.g. dress, behavior, hairstyle).”
The department also advocates for teachers to celebrate a “gender-neutral day” in which students are asked to pick “two to three ways they will reject gender stereotypes for the day.”
Students should make specific commitments to challenge gender norms .”
“This is part of a national effort in schools to ‘break the binary’ by confusing young children about biological sex and indoctrinating them into believing that gender is a spectrum,” Parents Defending Education Director of Outreach Erika Sanzi told Fox News in a statement. The Department of Education needs to remove these ideologi-based resources and any teacher of gender fluidity for three year-olds from a classroom .”
