GLSEN openly advocates for teachers to intentionally create a separation between children and their parents; a document from the organization titled, "Model Local Education Agency Policy on Transgender and Nonbinary Students" writes that "Transgender and nonbinary students have the right to discuss and express their gender identity openly and to decide when, with whom, and how much to share private information."
It adds that should a student decide he or she would like to be called a different name or wants a gender "transition," teachers or other school staff have no authority in sharing this type of information with "anyone."
There is notably no exception included for a given child's parents, with the document claiming that "courts have held that students have a constitutional right to privacy concerning their sexual orientation, transgender status, or gender identity."
It also writes that prior to reaching out to the parents or guardians of a child suffering from such afflictions, "school staff should clarify with the student whether to use their gender affirming name and the pronouns that correspond to their gender identity, or whether to use their legal name when corresponding with a parent/guardian."
The Daily Caller reported that the organization will also use gender-ideology-motivated language in numerous subjects. This was seen in mathematics, with the outlet sharing that one example reads, “Miguel and their dads love to draw with chalk.”
GLSEN has taken in substantial donations from more than one large children's retailer. Kohl's sent $35,000 to the group last year, while Target has reportedly handed over at least $2.1 million.
Many other institutions have backed GLSEN be it financially or otherwise, including ones that primarily focus on children. Recent examples include funding offered to the group by Disney as well as an award for top honors doled out to the organization by The American Library Association in recognition of its LGBT books.
By its own admission, GLSEN works with lawmakers in order to shape political outcomes, as was observed last year when it made a public request for so-called "LGBTQ+ Families" to take a survey to "help us inform policymakers about what’s really going on in our nation’s schools."
