‘It’s Happening Everywhere’: Lawmakers Push to Ban Secret Student Pronoun Changes, Keep Parents Involved

A U.S. lawmaker introduced legislation to Congress on Wednesday that would require schools to receive parental permission before a student changes their pronouns, a response to a lawsuit by a parent whose daughter allegedly began to secretly transition genders at a California school.

The Prohibiting Parental Secrecy Policies in Schools Act, sponsored by Rep. Doug LaMalfa, R-Calif., would withhold federal funding from schools if they do not implement policies that require parental permission before a student can change their name or pronouns at school.

The legislation was drafted as a response to a lawsuit from Aurora Regino, who is suing Chico Unified School District after a counselor allegedly helped her daughter secretly transition genders, LaMalfa told the Daily Caller News Foundation.


In Maine, a mom is demanding an investigation into a school district that allegedly hid her 13-year-old daughter’s gender transition and secretly provided the child with multiple chest binders, a tool used to flatten breasts.

Parents Defending Education, a group advocating for parental rights in education, is suing an Idaho school district that adopted a “Transgender and Students Nonconforming to Gender Role Stereotypes” policy in August that allows students to hide their gender transitions from their parents.

LaMalfa expects the Prohibiting Parental Secrecy Policies in Schools Act to pass the U.S. House of Representatives in 2023, he told the Daily Caller News Foundation. The U.S. Senate, however, has a Democratic majority, as does the California House and Senate, where the legislation is opposed, according to local channel KRCR News.
