Pennsylvania social workers have a new requirement on them now. This requirement is that they must determine if your newborn baby is "non-binary." This is based on a review of official government documents in the state obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. The Office of Child Development and Early Learning in Pennsylvania funds health and social programs for young children. They are now saying that social workers in the state must determine if their newborn child is non-binary by their standards. The government forms now ask the social workers to tick off a box that reads "male," "female," or "gender non-binary." Thus, it seems that social workers must try to decide about the gender identity of their newborn child. The Free Beacon spoke with a Pennsylvania social worker about this new development. They said: "I have to ask clients, 'Is your 10-day-old male, female, or nonbinary?'"

The department's communication director said: "This is a field for data collection," and "There is no directive or expectation that parents be verbally or explicitly asked if their children are nonbinary." Still, many find it odd that the official government form requires that users select "male," "female," or "non-binary." The forms appear to have been updated in August. These updates come at a time when many are highly concerned that more and more children may be developing confusion and other issues related to who they are as far as their gender is concerned. This is a worrying thing because many feel like allowing people to select non-binary as their gender may cause more confusion and even mental health issues for some. The Free Beacon reports a growing amount of scientific evidence that gender dysphoria is increasing among young people. Leor Sapir, a fellow at the Manhattan Institute, spoke about 12 studies on this subject. They stated that 11 of those 12 studies showed that this condition typically resolves itself around puberty. Thus, some are concerned that offering information about the potential to be labeled "non-binary" might prolong the process of discovering one's true identity. It may be a real problem for those confused about their gender before puberty.
