Spanish region extends parental authority against gender ideology

In Andalusia, the large autonomous region on Spain’s southern coast, parents will be able to stop their children from taking part in gender projects in the future.

    The regional government has extended parental authority accordingly. Specifically, it will now be possible for Spanish parents to exclude their children “from additional school activities, if they are against their convictions,” reported the taz .

    The new regulation is based on an agreement between the Partido Popular (PP) and Ciudadanos-led government and the Vox party. At the center of the Vox party’s parental opt out aspirations, is the current gender ideology being taught in schools.

    On the Vox website, parents can download a form, fill in and submit it to the school board. It states: “Given the possibility that my son/daughter will be indoctrinated against my will and against my principles and moral values ​​through the content of the curriculum that includes gender ideology and a certain sexual enlightenment, […] I address myself to you with the request that your institution obtain our explicit consent before any discussions, workshops or activities that address socially controversial issues or sexuality.”

    Outside of educational institutions, the party wants a stronger approach against all notions of “gender”. The party has demanded the abolition of “all superfluous organisms” associated with “feminism, abortion and LGTB”. Instead, Vox supports a “family policy aimed at increasing the birth rate”.

    On April 28 there will be early elections in Spain. Vox is currently polling at around 10 percent of the vote. In Andalusia, the party has spoken out strongly against abortion, illegal immigration and Catalan separatism.

    It could act as the majority procurer for a coalition of PP and Ciudadanos. The conservative Vox party gained parliamentary representation at regional elections in Andalusia last December.

    Vox’s 100-point campaign program include shutting down “radical feminist subsidized organisations”, the repeal of gender violence legislation, axing abortions subsidized by the state, and eliminating gender parity in political parties.

    Francisco Serrano, a Vox deputy and the party leader, says the party wants a list of the names of government workers who deal with gender issues. Serrano has filed a parliamentary request demanding that the Andalusian government make public the identities of all the workers at its Gender Violence Integral Assessment Units.

    “We have received complaints from people assuring that these workers are not qualified to perform their duties on gender violence issues or on decisions regarding the custody of minors, and that in some cases they are not even registered with any professional association,”  a party source told Spanish daily ABC.

    According to Serrano “judges are entering judgments on the strength of reports made by unqualified and highly ideologized professionals, and which can determine the freedom of an accused party or the future of children”.
