Delzell: Transgenderism is new and controversial, so why promote it nationwide in primary schools?
Last month I wrote about the sudden phenomenon of transgender children. Sadly, this dangerous new trend is breathing down the necks of public grade school students across the country.

For example, a mom in California recently broke down at a school board meeting when describing how her five-year-old daughter was in a kindergarten classroom when a teacher read a book explaining how her classmate switched from a boy to a “girl.”
“The elite charter school in a Sacramento suburb was subsequently engulfed in a bitter controversy when some outraged parents reported their five-year-olds came home that day traumatized, confused and fearful that they might turn into the opposite sex.” According to the California Family Council, 90 children were pulled from the school by their parents as a result of the controversy.
Meanwhile, a policy proposal in Delaware states that “all students enrolled in a Delaware public school may self-identify gender or race.” And this means “children as young as five would be permitted to choose their own race and gender-identity without approval from their parents.”
This is not the case, however, in Kansas where an excellent resolution was passed recently. Kansas politicians who supported “God’s Design for Gender” are standing up for children in order to protect their impressionable hearts. Children with gender confusion need wise counsel from their parents at home rather than transgender advertisements at school.
Michelle Cretella, M.D., is President of the American College of Pediatricians. She writes, “Even the American Psychological Association’s Handbook of Sexuality and Psychology admits that prior to the widespread promotion of transition affirmation, 75 to 90 percent of prepubertal children who were distressed by their biological sex eventually outgrew that distress. The vast majority came to accept their biological sex by late adolescence after passing naturally through puberty.” Many professionals believe the number is even higher at between 80 and 95 percent.
