Idaho Governor Signs Laws Defining Sex as Male or Female, Banning 'Gender Language' and 'Preferred Pronouns' in Government, and Schools

Louis Knuffke : Apr 11, 2024

The law states that government employees and teachers must use pronouns that accord with biological sex.

BCN Editor's Note: One wouldn't even think a law like this would be needed, but here we are. Kudos to Gov. Brad Little for signing such common sense legislation. Hopefully other states will follow suit. -Aimee Herd, Breaking Christian News

(Boise, ID) – [] Idaho Gov. Brad Little signed into law this week two bills to directly counter transgender ideology within the state. The first is a pronoun law assuring that government employees and public school teachers use pronouns that accord with a person's biological sex and the second is a legal definition of sex that acknowledges "(i)n human beings, there are two and only two sexes: male and female."

On Monday, April 8, Little signed HB 538, which prohibits compulsory so-called "gender language," protecting government employees and public school teachers in particular from any adverse actions for using pronouns of a person in accord with the person's biological sex.

The new law states, "The Legislature finds that despite the United States Supreme Court's clear holding that compelled speech offends the constitution, government actors across the State of Idaho and the United States as a whole are not vigilantly protecting the people against such compelled speech."

There are increasing pressures by state government actors to compel public employees, as well as students in public schools, to communicate certain preferred personal titles and pronouns that many such employees and students do not prefer to communicate. Specifically, to compel the use of preferred personal titles and pronouns that do not correspond with the biological sex of the individual seeking to be referred to by such preferred personal titles.

To protect the people of Idaho against unlawful compelled speech, the Legislature finds it expedient to codify into Idaho law a prohibition on any governmental entity in the State of Idaho from compelling any public employee or public school student to communicate preferred personal titles and pronouns that do not correspond with the biological sex of the individual seeking to be referred to by such titles or pronouns. Such prohibition is essential to ensure that the constitutional right to free speech of every person in the State of Idaho is respected.

The law, which takes effect on July 1, applies to all public employees throughout Idaho, including police, public school teachers and staff, and students. Teachers must use students' pronouns that accord with biological sex unless given parental permission to the contrary. And if any government employee or student is punished for using pronouns that are in accord with a person's biological sex rather than preferred pronouns, they are entitled to sue for damages in civil court within two years...
