The Pennsylvania Department of Education has released new protocol across the state’s school system where teachers must call students by their self-identified pronouns in the classroom.
Pronoun options such as “ne, ve, ze/zie and xe” are listed as gender-neutral terms students can force Pennsylvania teachers to utilize.
The education department’s website has a page called “Creating Gender-Inclusive Schools and Classrooms,” which overviews pronouns students can choose to be addressed by.
“In addition to the traditional pronouns (he/him, she/her, they), some people prefer to use gender-neutral pronouns, such as ne, ve, ze/zie and xe. If you don’t know a student’s preferred personal pronoun, it’s always best to ask,” the site reads.
Another part of the education department’s site rejects the idea that gender is “binary”, calling it a “faulty concept that there are only two genders: male and female.”
Pennsylvania educators will be encouraged to go over the website’s progressive content during “gender-neutral day,” where students as young as three years old will learn about challenging traditional gender norms.

During the day, teachers will make students “pick two to three ways they will reject gender stereotypes for the day.”
The PA Dept. of Education cites a 2013 article called “The Gender Spectrum” as a resource for progressive gender teaching.
“The Gender Spectrum” says “some kids know their gender identities and birth sexes don’t match almost as soon as they begin to talk” and that 3-year-old children are able to identify themselves as gender-fluid.
Conservatives have been outraged by this far-Left teaching.
“This is part of a national effort in schools to ‘break the binary’ by confusing young children about biological sex and indoctrinating them into believing that gender is a spectrum,” said Erika Sanzi, the director of outreach at Parents Defending Education.
“The Department of Education should delete these ideology-based resources from their website and anyone teaching gender fluidity to 3-year-olds does not belong in a classroom,” Sanzi added.
