NEW Fox News articles can now be heard on audio! On its website, the Pennsylvania Department of Education provides “ne, ve, ze/zie and xe” as gender-neutral pronouns that some children may choose, and it cautions teachers against assuming something about someone’s gender identity without first getting their permission.

Preferred personal pronouns are discussed on a page on the education department’s website titled “Creating Gender-Inclusive Schools and Classrooms.”

Some people choose to use gender-neutral pronouns, such as ne, ve, ze/zie and xe, in addition to the usual pronouns (he/him, she/her, they), according to the webpage reads . “It’s always preferable to ask if you don’t know a student’s preferred personal pronoun.”

Additionally, “binary gender” is described on the website as the “misconception that there are only two genders: male and female.”

The descriptions on the education department’s website were taken from a 2013 Carrie Kilman article titled “The Gender Spectrum,” , which asserts that “some toddlers know their gender identities and birth sexes don’t match practically as soon as they begin to talk” and that children as young as 3 can identify as gender-fluid.

A request for comment from Fox News Digital was not immediately answered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.

According to Erika Sanzi, director of outreach for Parents Defending Education, “this is part of a national attempt in schools to ‘break the binary’ by perplexing young children about biological sex and brainwashing them into believing that gender is a spectrum.”

She said that anyone teaching gender fluidity to three-year-olds had no business teaching in a classroom and that the Department of Education should remove these ideologically motivated items from its website.
