House Republicans Pass First National Bill Targeting Transgender Youth

On Friday, House Republicans passed the so-called “Parents Bill of Rights Act,” which would force educators to misgender trans students and out them to their parents. The bill is the first federal legislation that targets transgender youth and is the most recent push by Republicans to advance a right-wing education agenda in a countrywide legislative session that has targeted trans children. HR 5 — which Democrats have dubbed the “Politics Over Parents Act” — was introduced by Republican Rep. Julia Letlow. The amendments that would force educators to out trans children were proposed by Rep. Lauren Boebert (R), and would require schools to notify parents if their child is using restrooms that don’t align with the sex they were assigned at birth.
