LGBT youth

Delaware is preparing to pass a rule that would allow children to choose their own race and gender. The new rule will block the students' parents from interfering in their child's decision.

Under Delaware's new Rule 225, gay and transgender children will be allowed to decide their race and whether they are girls or boys.

Transgender activist Mark Purpura praised the proposed rule, saying it is in the “best interest of the child” and helps support children who are “living in fear” of their parents.

But more than 11,000 Delaware citizens have opposed the rule, according to Breitbart News.

Delaware’s Democrat Gov. John Carney supports the measure, but State Rep. Rich Collins (R-Millsboro) opposes it, calling it “onerous” and “confusing."

If the rule is approved, Delaware will become 1 of 18 states to enact rules or laws to address gender identification.

  • Noirluv45

    Yet again the government is trying to rule the citizens. It's not their job to parent children. They need to stay out of people's lives unless it pertains to laws or the betterment (and in my opinion, this not) of humanity.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    This is were it gets interesting for me.. If I had a school aged kid and someone called and say you need to come to the school your daughter is sick.. and I know I have a son.. hmmm....

  • Mo Mobetta

    The funny part about this is that it’s a liberal/Democratic agenda and a majority of people who’s generally on the Democrats nuts any other time be the main ones saying how stupid stuff like this be and it’s almost like yea duh that’s what the Republicans be trying to say..republicans want less government and democrats want more.. they want a nanny state they can control. The more people on disability and welfare the more people they can control

    why are people still sending their kids to school? They are getting shot up, teachers molesting them, and now this smdh

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    This is beyond dumb and stupid.

  • Dowoop

    Some of these kids are going to be in for a rude awakening in the real world.

    Good dang point.

  • hottlanta

    How about letting them choose a job and get outta my house.

  • datjerk

    They need to stop the bullshit. I'm glad my son is out of school. Lord.

  • imright

    this gay agenda makes me sick.

  • Vonn

    Parents are responsible for guiding their children so the kids don't make stupid mistakes...like this. Kids aren't cognitively capable of making this type of decision. Lord help these ppl.

  • Allihave2say

    If children have the right to make all these decisions without the benefit of parents are genetics, the pedophiles will say they have the right to chose to have sex with adults. Children aren't allowed to pray, read the Bible or play Christian music in school so now can they bring that back without the consent of their parents.

  • Kayke

    This is grooming.
    It's parents who are responsible for their minor child's sexuality, not government.
    This is a blantant enfringement of parental rights.
    Home school your kids!!

  • Vonn

    She still is.

  • NeverSurprised

    AND this ENTIRE gay agenda was spearheaded by BARACK OBAMA. The insane notion that a public school would allow a 6 year old boy to CHOOSE to be a girl, then force all of the other 6 year olds in his class to go along with the lunacy, would have been UNHEARD OF before Obama came to power. Now look where we are.

    How INTENTIONALLY BLIND do black people have to be not to see the Satanic Servant that is Barack Obama.

  • mark1984

    sad....the way you think at 12 is different from 21 which is different at 33.....let children be children and not sexualize them..

  • You Could Never

    I don't have that issue. My aware girls are proud to be of melanin. And female.

    But. If I did....you can go up to that school and be whatever it is you wanna be. But come 3 pm you get treated like the black female child you were born as. You don't wanna be a GIRL, ok. When you move out you can be an Adam vs an Eve. But you getting Eve clothes if I'm buying. Fomf Delaware

  • Dem Moore

    That's so weird, I remember at that age loving who I was. Why encourage a child to be something else that seems like the reverse of what adults should be doing. Things are getting so wierd. Why are we teaching kids to be excepting of all if this is the case. It's adds a new meaning to "who are you" like really really.

  • JRock

    Off topic. Police officer killed.

    A friend called to tell me that a Maryland police officer was shot and killed today. He leaves behind a wife and 4 kids. Very sad.

    What's even sadder is if the reports of how it went down are true. My friend said a man walked in and found his wife in bed with this police officer. He began to attack the wife and the officer tried to intervene when he supposedly was shot and killed by the husband with his own gun. The husband then fled the home and was pursued by police who then shot and killed him. If this is the way it really went down this is truly sad for all involved. The police officer's wife is without her husband and 4 kids are without their father. And the woman he was allegedly in bed with her husband and sidepiece are both dead. When I Googled this story it only states that the officer was off duty at the time he was shot and was trying to help a woman in a domestic violence situation. Clearly the PD is not going to say what he was doing at the house in the first place but this is just beyond sad. Ladies and men cheating on your spouse is not worth losing your life for if this happened the way my friend said it did. He said he ran into a buddy of his who is a police officer and he asked how he was doing and the cop just burst into tears and told him what happened.

  • Ghost

    Oh...so now kids can decide if they want to be black, white, hispanic or whatever? What in the heck is going on in Delaware?

    Glad I don't have kids nor live n Delaware because the state would have a BIG problem with me...smdh

    You can thank Obama and the Democrats for the bizarre emphasis on sexual politics.

    LMFAO. We are truly in the end of days. WTF is this nonsense?

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    I guess anything to keep people from reality. People are easier to control when they're just following the herd.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Isn't this what they call indoctrination?

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    Good God, I've been saying this for years but no one listens to me!

  • ?Royalty?

    Just when I started to consider adoption..... ?

    I love kids, but I hate this world. ? How do you raise children in such a topsy turvy place? And you know this retarded ish will spread to all of the other states. Its just a matter of time.

  • Youngblood

    Kids don't know what color they want to wear to school the next day. Stop giving them freedom to make lifetime decisions , They will blame you as the parent asking you why you let me do that

  • bella28498 .

    cheaters never win, too bad the husband died.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Open. Your. Eyes. The Democrats have been quietly doing this for years. Obama opened the door for the LGBT to go into the schools and indoctrinate the kids -- something they promised they wouldn't do if they got gay marriage passed. That's the problem with giving them an inch and thinking they won't take a damn mile. ?

  • The Chosen One

    Here we go again adding more fuel to the fire.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    No one talked about the Russians during the election when Julian Assange was leaking Hillary's emails every single day. Hillary and Obama laughed at the leaked emails because they thought Hillary was going to win.

    Obama rented a house a couple of blocks from the White House. He had all the gays and trans in place to push the gay agenda full steam after Hillary was elected. But Trump won and upset their well-laid plans.

    Look at the people who are really angry at Trump: it's the gays in the media - Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, Shep Smith, etc. They are deflecting and using the Russian collusion story to try and win back the House and the Senate in the midterm elections so they can get the gay agenda back on track.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    I read something on child psychology that said something to the affect of children who act out are doing it for attention they want someone to notice and set rules and boundaries because that's showing them someone cares. So yea, let's just let kids decide their race, gender and let them eat candy for breakfast cuz that's what they decide. DISGUSTING!

  • Dahl

    As are the people pushing this agenda. But they aren’t getting called out the way she was.

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    DISGUSTING.

  • Wyteprivilege

    lolol!

  • Tequila Mockingbird

    So Anorexics are considered mentally ill. People with obsessive compulsive disorders like hoarding are considered mentally ill. Paedophiles are considered mentally ill but, transgenders are considered absolutely sane people who should be encouraged and supported? Got it.

  • Youngblood

    Your so right, when you let your kids run the show they don't feel like you care because they have no guidance. I have a 14 teen year old daughter that thinks she no it all. But when I do what needs to be done she comes out of no where. Like I love you mom ,it surprise me all the time but I know she's thankful to have a mother that cares.

  • Vonn

    Absolutely

  • Shameful

    So delusions are in the best interest of a child? Your race and gender are what they are and cannot be chosen or changed. Deciding your race is ludicrous. That must be new. Choosing your gender or sexuality has no place in a school setting. If you can enforce clothing, hair color, and other rules about appearance, you can enforce that girls dress like girls and boys dress like boys. This has gotten beyond ridiculous. It’s like they want everybody to be gay, not just accept them, but turn them gay too, starting with the children, who are the easiest targets and capable of passing this down to future generations as the norm. Every parent in Delaware who sends their child to a school that supports this foolishness needs their ass beat. Wouldn’t be mine. The time for them to protest was yesterday.

  • CookieMobster

    This is so disgusting and perverse. As I have said many times, my son wanted to be a puppy when was 4. That doesn't mean I bought his ass a collar and a leash and the school fed him alpo... It means I told him baby you can play like a puppy but you are a boy. Boy's can only be one other thing, and that is a man. That's all. Whomever believes this is a great idea should be shot so they don't reproduce and populate the world with more perversion. This mess has gone too far and I hope the Lord does not punish our country for this perversion like he did Sodom and Gamora

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    I know not every gay or lesbian supports this. Why aren’t they saying anything?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    We're trying. But we don't have a platform like CNN, HuffPost or MSNBC to get our message out.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    "They" are attempting to build a new political party that can be better controlled with a greater economic engine!

    Image the amount of money to be made off of gender reassignment drugs, surgeries, makeup, apparel, lifestyle marketing, etc.?

    An attemp to undermine the power and advances of the LGBT community and its power base and infrastructure!

    An attempt to deal with Hispanics and Latinos will out number white Americans!

    To continue to marginalize Women, make women compete and lose to Trans (men) women, and set us back a thousand years!

    An attempt to create Gender Confusion and take advantage of natural gender identity processes that automatically occur!

    I TRUST GOD, and why Hillary didn't win, and having Trump, there are many set-backs, but the Trans Agenda isn't one of his initiatives or personal agendas, thankfully!

    I wouldn't doubt it. Saw an article the other day that said kids can no longer say no when asked to a dance. Disgusting.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I see the governor is not trying to get re-elected...I don't care what the kid says, parents are not going to just roll over and give in to this. It may end up on the books but will it end up in the home. My house, my rules until you can get your own place and pay your own rent. Then you do what you want...

    This country puts Sodom and Gomorrah to shame. This law doesn't make any sense. Smh

  • Luvn_it

    I be damned my house my rules. Unless the state of Delaware or anyone of the other 17 states is going to take you in feed you,clothes you,and provide for you they can't have nothing to say about the rules in my house.

    Just curious does anyone know the other states?

  • Dem Moore

    Don't be mean auntie, I like him. Lol...

  • Cannelle

    Why always with race? If someone says that they "feel black", they want to identify with a specific sub-culture for which they have probably stereotyped into things they like. I think of that fool Rachel Dolezal, who blew up the internet with this nonsense. She was nothing but a stereotype of what SHE deemed a black American woman. I also remember there was a story about a white man who said that he "felt Filipino" because he liked the culture and ate the foods, so he saw himself as Filipino. And various other white weebos who want to be Japanese.

    SMH. Why can't people just LIKE something, why do they have to BECOME it?

  • Holler If Ya Hear Me

    This really is an attempt to undermine the black race. It will be extremely hard for a black person who looks it to claim that they are white.

    At the end of the day it’s always to further oppress melanin people. Stay woke.

    "The new rule will block the students’ parents from... parenting their children as GOD MEANT US TO DO WHEN HE INSTILLED THE FAMILY ARRANGEMENT!"

    This is sad. So a gay/confused man decided to ease his own feelings by butting this law in place. He probably has NO CHILDREN, but "knows what's in a child's best interest?!"

  • J2PC

    You can best believe Liberals are in charge of driving that dysfunctional bus. lol

    They tend to promote or encourage all types of socially dysfunctional behavior. In turn, this helps them a line of create a fundraisers/charities and social programs. The end result is creating self-serving gov't jobs in various social programs.

    -that is why there is no real need to fix crime-infested urban areas and failing schools because it is supposed to be that way. To fix social programs & dysfunctional mentalities is to risk the ability to sustain one's own gov't job/career.

  • TheOwley

    The gubbemint is now disenfranchising parent and curtailing parental rights. Soon the school will teach them how to emancipate themselves. They are emancipated but you must provide a roof and all sustenance until age 30, but you have no rights to make decisions for them. I see where this is going. Cereal and cupcakes 20 times a day.
    You all know who elected these sociopaths. Reap what you sow.

  • TheOwley

    Soon it will be your house, the government rules.

  • TheOwley

    Maryland is a blue state. They will stay blue regardless of the crazy laws they implement. The next governor and the next all will implement the same crazy laws to water down parental rights. They are coming for the kids in every way possible.

  • WAKANDA ROYALTY

  • ImWoke

    Eventually I guess parents will only be around for financial support. Children should not be making these life changing decisions. Parents normally make the major decisions that impact their children’s lives.

    Thats how it is now..

  • ImWoke

    LOL for some.

  • Luvn_it

    Well the government can commence to paying my bills,paying my rent,living expenses,grocery,clothing,and all other needs of my family.

  • TheOwley

    You just described the tyranny of communism. You are a cradle to grave slave. Little food, lousy housing, restricted movement, no freedoms, no technology or if you have it, it's cleverly limited or stolen because innovations is stifled. You have no bills but you also have no salaries or very low pay. Cubans and Venezuelans can tell you all about it. You don't want none of that.

  • Luvn_it

    Seems like we're heading that way if the government is trying to tell parents how to raise their own children. What's next on the list of things in people's personal lives are they going to try to control?

  • TheOwley

    Parents are not complaining, the teachers are in charge. We'll see how much the parents can take.
