'Non-binary' identifying students in New Jersey skyrocket over 4,000% since 2019

Leftist politicians in the state believe parents should not know about any feelings of gender confusion their child may have.


Recent state enrollment data from New Jersey has found that the amount of students in the public school system who are non considering themselves to be "non-binary" has skyrocketed over 4,000 percent during the past four years. 

In the 2019-2020 school year, a mere total of 16 students identified with such a label, according to enrollment figures from the New Jersey Department of Education. Now, that number has ballooned to 675, marking an excess of a 4118 percent increase for the 2022-23 school year. 

41 of those 675 are elementary schoolchildren, per the report.

As this massive increase of so-called "non-binary" kids in the school system has gone on, leftist politicians in the state have been expressing their views that parents should be kept in the dark about any feelings a child may have in regard to their gender or sexual preference, especially when it falls out of the norm. 

Following a new policy passed by a school district last month saying that it will consult parents on anything which could have "a material impact on a student's physical and/or mental health," New Jersey Democrat Attorney General Matthew Platkin filed a lawsuit against the rule, arguing it "discriminates" against so-called ‘LGBTQ’ pupils by mandating teachers to "out" them to the parents without first receiving permission of the child. 

Democrat state Governor Phil Murphy expressed his support for the attorney general’s legal action.

New Jersey is not the only state where such marked upswings in children identifying with such a concept have been observed in recent times. Maryland’s largest public school district, for instance, observed a drastic 582 percent increase of students in Montgomery’s County Schools labeling themselves as “gender nonconforming” in a short two-year period, per student surveys. 

Just earlier this month, The Post Millenial covered some of the backlash seen in Montgomery County after a group of Muslims furiously protested the educators’ forcing of ‘LGBTQ’ teachings on its students. Chants of "Protect our children," and "Religious Freedom now" could be heard outside of a school board meeting. 

A survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in April found that approximately 1 in 4 high school students now consider themselves to be LGBTQ.
