Wisconsin Parents Are Fighting Back Against Efforts to Trans Their Kids

It appears parents are not fond of those who believe their children should belong to the state and not to them. This is especially true in Wisconsin, where they are fighting back against efforts to trans their kids behind their backs.

Earlier this year, a Wisconsin school district reportedly enacted a training in which teachers were told that “Parents are not entitled to know their kids’ identities.” It also told these educators that knowledge of these matters “must be earned” by the parents.

Needless to say, this did not sit well with parents of children in the Eau Claire School District, where the training was given. In a joint statement, a group of three mothers said:

We are appalled that ECASD would display such blatant disregard for the parents and guardians of our community’s children. We are equally dismayed that current school district leadership would pressure teachers into breaking a social contract that we all know and understand—that parents and guardians hold primary responsibility and decision making for the welfare and care of their children.

This was not the only egregious example showing how the district is trying to indoctrinate its students into far-leftist ideology. A staffer at Eau Claire North High School put up a poster that read: “If your parents aren’t accepting of your identity, I’m your mom now.”

Creepiness aside, these are just some of the instances in which this district has gone all-in on the idea that they should be able to encourage students to accept the idea that they can switch to another gender, and then assist them in doing so without the parents’ knowing.

But now, at least some parents have become fed up and have filed a lawsuit with the assistance of America First Legal and the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty. The plaintiffs are alleging that the district “mandates that schools and teachers hide critical information regarding a child’s health from his or her parents and to take action specifically designed to alter the child’s mental and physical well-being.”

Fox News reported:

The school district’s training on its gender identity policy stated that “Some transgender, non-binary, and/or gender-nonconforming students are not ‘open’ at home for reasons that may include safety concerns or lack of acceptance. School personnel should speak with the student first before discussing a student’s gender nonconformity or transgender status with the student’s parent/guardian.”

The training also taught educators to collaborate with students to create Gender Support Plans, which outline which restrooms the student can use, which pronouns they choose, and the students’ chosen names.

According to the lawsuit:

“The Gender Support Plan and Gender Identity Policy lack any requirement to notify the student’s parents that [Eau Claire Area School District] is renaming their child or giving him or her a new gender identity. There is no requirement to notify the parents that their child will be using opposite-sex intimate facilities. There is no requirement to notify the parents that their child will stay in opposite-sex overnight lodging.”

Ian Prior, senior advisor at America First Legal, commented on the situation earlier this year:

“I think it is just so appalling that a school system, and public employees, would believe that they have the authority to step between children and their parents, not just to implement that in policy, but then actually to boast about it in a way that makes clear that they have no respect whatsoever for the liberty rights that are guaranteed to parents to raise their children as they see fit, as guaranteed by the constitution.”

In the words of The Mandalorian, “This is the way.”

I’ve written many times on the importance of using the legal system to fight back against the demonic attempts to push children into seeking out social, medical, and even surgical methods to supposedly become a different sex or gender. The individuals who are intent on influencing kids in this matter will not listen to reason; at this point, the only way to stop them is to use the court system to force them to abandon this line of action.

This has already been successful in other states like Illinois and Massachusetts. If the court rules in the plaintiffs’ favor, it will be yet another victory. Let us hope for a favorable outcome here.
