New Jersey sues school districts which require parent notification of ‘transitioning’ students by COLLEGE FIX STAFF

The state of New Jersey is suing three school districts that require parents be notified “when gender-nonconforming students wish to change their names, be called by new pronouns, or request other accommodations.”

New Jersey Attorney General Matthew Platkin filed civil rights complaints against the Middletown Township, Marlboro Township and Manalapan-Englishtown Regional districts this past week, mere hours after the districts had approved the policies.

It’s the second time in 30 days that Platkin’s office has gone to court over transgender student rights, according to

Platkin said in a statement that the state “will not tolerate any action by schools that threatens the health and safety” of children. He called the districts’ policies “discriminatory” and said they were a “severe risk” to trans and non-binary students.

Five years ago the New Jersey Department of Education issued regulations making gender-based decisions dependent upon students, not parents. New Jersey and federal law “require schools to ensure a safe and supportive environment for transgender students.”

If a student wants a Tylenol for a headache, however, his/her parent must be notified.

Marc Zitomer, attorney for the Marlboro Township School Board, said his district “vehemently disagreed” with Platkin and added he was “confident that the board’s amended policy properly balances parental and student rights.”

From the article:

In Middletown, the school must “notify a student’s parents or guardian” of the student’s “asserted gender identity” when students request a public social transition accommodation, such as a name or pronoun change, or a bathroom, locker room, club, or sports accommodation.

In Marlboro, school staff must notify parents or guardians of any student’s “change in gender identity or expression.”

And in Manalapan, the school must notify a student’s parents or guardian of the student’s asserted gender identity when a student requests a public social transition accommodation. The policy states that for students in grades Pre-K through 5, the responsibility for determining a student’s gender identity rests with the child’s parents/guardians – not the student.

A few years back, neighboring heavy-blue state Delaware ditched a state regulation which would have made parent notification of a child’s gender identity dependent on whether the parent was “supportive.”

    1. “‘Pride’ Is A Thinly Veiled Color Revolution To Destroy Western Civilization.”

    2. “The elephant in the room here needs to be addressed, which is that a society that is conditioned to be increasingly LGBT, or that transitions people from childhood using indoctrination, surgeries, and hormones is going to have collapsing population numbers. And maybe that is one of the establishment’s goals – To make the West infertile.”

  1. “All social strata and social formations created by traditional society must be annihilated, individual men and women must be uprooted from their ancestral environment, torn out of their native milieus, no tradition of any type shall be permitted to remain as sacrosanct, traditional social norms must only be viewed as a disease to be eradicated, the ruling dictum of the new order is; nothing is good so everything must be criticized and abolished, everything that was, must be gone. After destruction of the old order, construction of the new order is a larger and more difficult task. We will have torn out the old limbs from their ancient roots in deep layers, social norms will be lying disorganized and anarchic so they must be blocked against new cultural forms and social categories naturally re-emerging. The general masses will have been first persuaded to join as equals in the first task of destroying their own traditional society and economic culture, but then the new order must be forcibly established through people again being divided and differentiated only in accordance with the new pyramidal hierarchical system of our imposed global monolithic new world order.”
