School Transgender Policy 2. Suffolk

Featured

I have done a number of twitter threads on School policies, ostensibly, about protecting “transgender children”.  I  have already blogged, on the way they treat parents. We are treated as potential bigots who need educating on Gender Identity issues. The Schools,  invariably, take it upon themselves to keep parents in the dark about our “Gender Dysphoric” kids.  They blithely inform us our kids are at significant risk of attempting suicide but still think it is good practice to hide pertinent information from parents. You can read that post here: Putting the Loco in Loco Parentis.   

This is the second of a series on the policies I have found. Some have already been withdrawn but we need to preserve a record of the extent of the policy capture. Note that this series will be repetitive as they are clearly modelled on a small number of templates. The poor practice is widespread due to the cut and paste nature of the policies. The positive spin on this is that we can recapture in the same way. We only need sensible templates which balance the needs of kids with Gender Dysphoria and the protected characteristic of sex. We also need schools to stop usurping Parental Responsiblity. I know of multiple parents who only found out their daughters were adopting male identities, at school, due to an administrative error! This cannot be right. I was fortunate that this was not the case for my child, possibly, because it was back in 2015.

This post is on the Suffolk guidance. It is modelled on the Allsorts toolkit, which was the first one I covered. You can access the document below:

Suffolk Trans-Inclusion-Schools-Toolkit

Educate and Celebrate? 

In the introduction we are told this was produced with input from transgender children and their parents. The other agencies they reference, quote, or signpost are listed below. Nearly all of these are Lobbying groups; advocating for the inculcation of Gender Identity Ideology in our schools, universities and other public, or indeed private, institutions. Stonewall, Mermaids, Gendered intelligence, Gires all get a mention.

I can’t possibly include all the clips I made of this document. I will just select the most egregious examples.

Predictably we go straight to the suggestion that trans-identifying children are at a greater risk of self-harm and suicide. This fear is leveraged to insist we have a “moral imperative” to act using emotional blackmail to demand “effective support”. What they propose , however, is the wrong kind of “support”.

I have rebutted the data on suicide many times on this blog. Below it is referenced once again. It is based on a study which included 27 trans-identifying people under the age of 26. Of that sample 13 had self-reported a suicide attempt. Even the author, of the PACE report, confirmed the difficulties that arise when research is used by lobby groups for their own purposes. Be very skeptical about suicide data in this field. It’s use, in my view, is not far removed from a terrorist tactic. Politicians are fond of saying they won’t negotiate with terrorists. In this case they have outright capitulated to lobbying groups deploying the most egregious of threats. Do this or I will kill myself/Your child will .

So how are Suffolk defining “trans”? Here is the list. This is unscientific nonsense and the last catetory is nonsensical. The authors clearly know we are making up genders, daily, so have added a catch-all category at the end.

Stonewall Lesbian

D5F08ADA-3191-4EFA-B7F1-94B3A01A51B3

They also add this revealing caveat about why they are omitting “cross-dressers”.  Most people don’t know that transvestites are considered to be “Trans” and covered by the Stonewall Umbrella. 

64B1D791-21B3-4E1E-94A3-247CFB9E3C22

It seems, for  children, the authors recognise  dressing up in clothes “stereotypically intended for the “opposite” sex”   (note the inverted commas around the word “sex”) doesn’t make you “trans”.  So what changes when you are an adult?  Kids who experiment with dress are not automatically assumed to be “trans” but adult men who indulge in fetishistic transvestism are?   Here we are grooming children  to accept transvestites as some kind of “woman” when many do so for a sexual thrill.  An erotic charge which  can be heightened when undertaken in a forbidden (female only) space. 

63F51AB4-2BE6-4A93-942C-4AFF03202FC7

Below they engage in the linguistic gymnastics to change the definition of sexual orientation, a legally protected characteristic, by some careful wording.  We used to call gay love the love that dared not speak it’s name.  We are doing the same thing in 2020.  This alteration of the meaning of sexual attraction to “romantic” is designed to make sure a heterosexual man, who identifies as a woman,can still be a “lesbian”.  I concede that, if  you are new to this subject, that last sentence will sound like an outlandish statement.  Bear with me!

Here is Alex Drummond.  Stonewall ambassador and bearded “lesbian”.  Note the stance. I don’t think I have ever seen adult women adopt this, toes turned inward, stance.  You won’t find a better take down of Alex than is to be found on the YouTube channel of the late, great, Magdalen Berns.

Safeguarding

We have just been told that any trans-identifying children are at a higher risk for self-harm and suicide but, now we are told there are no safeguarding issues. At the same time we also telling staff that it is Ok to allow children and young people to use the toilets and changing rooms of the opposite sex. NO SAFEGUARDING ISSUES?

71ABFF21-638E-4151-AABD-1778A0D250D6Our children are also being taught that all people’s bodies and genitals are different. Not males and females have different bodies but “peoples”. 

008CEEAE-E003-4D6B-9B86-81E207498E2A

Yes we know the male people have different genitalia to the female people.  Here they are indoctrinating children to divorce sexed bodies from “gender identity”.  Specifically suggesting that recognising biological sex is based simple on “societal assumptions”. It is absolutely reckless to lower girls  boundaries about male-bodied people, in their spaces, in this way.  The tiny number of people with Disorders of Sexual development (here they use the term intersex) don’t undermine the fact that we are sexually dimorphic.  This is why the word “gaslighting” is ever-present in this “debate”.  if you don’t feel crazy trying to keep up with these teaching materials then you might not be sane!

Autism 

Next up they acknowledge the high prevalence of children with autism who are questioning their gender. Here they warn staff not to limit the autonomy of the autistic child by questioning their gender identity. In fact the guidance is contrary to what is needed here. Children who are autistic are particularly vulnerable to gender identity ideology and ought to be protected from being defined as “trans” for behaviours common in autistic children. As an aside Autistic Charities have been reckless in their rush to embrace Gender Identity Ideology. Those thathave colluded with sterilising autistic ought to be removed from their posts. A clear out of senior staff at Autistic Charities is well overdue. I suspect, instead, they will end up in the House of Lords.

Withholding Information from Parents (again!)

Another common thread is the schools deciding to withhold information from parents about their own children. Parents are not told about a child’s transgender identity despite believing this makes them in a high risk demographic for suicide and self-harm. They don’t seem to see the safe-guarding concern in the denial of salient information to parents. On the contrary they see the safeguarding risk as originating with parents. Once again painting parents as less likely to care about our children than a transient person in the school. I would argue we are setting up a situation where a child has a secret with an adult which may make them more vulnerable to grooming by that member of staff?

A71A75C0-9174-4DCF-A90C-31AB64802848

Furthermore other parents are not to be told that a boy, a male for clarity, is using your daughter’s changing rooms. I absolutely hated even single sex, communal changing rooms and showers and I was not alone. It is beyond belief we would consider it Ok to put girls in this position.

Here it is made explicit that this is also intended to apply for overnight stays. 👇

C7D0ABBE-EBB0-43A4-9DDA-810BEAFDEAA8

Overnight  school trips was that it was an important rite of passage to have nights away from home and typically the teachers left the girls unsupervised in the dormitories.  This was a key part of the trip.  The above guidance, however, means a teenage boy could be left in a girls dormitory.   What will it take before some grown-ups step in and acknowledge that sexual offences, in schools are off the scale and are being committed by males, as a sex class, not as a gender identity.  

The second point about that guidance is that any girl who feels uncomfortable will be stigmatised because she will be told she has to be the one to move. What girl will speak up in this climate?

So now we move on the case studies which, if you think I have been over-interpreting the guidance, lay out it clearly. This is a shameful misuse of the phrase “Human Rights” by the way. There is no human right to invade, women and girls, single sex, spaces.

0EC50124-142F-436C-B814-DA89FD46597A

Now we have taken away the right to single sex spaces what other ways could we screw over the female pupils? Oh, that’s right Sport. I am absolutely staggered that this policy was accepted without question. Of course a girl is going to be at risk playing a contact sport, like Rugby, against a male. And look at the language. “Trans boys are boys, not girls”. No they are females in flight from their sex but they are still female-bodied. Also make no mistake they always subsitute an example of a female (transman/boy) when they know using a male (transwoman/ girl) will look more blatantly wrong. .

C327E69A-769C-4F4C-BB71-FE9F21F39B7A

Scenario 4 is yet another example of parents being painted as problematic if they resist affirming a trans identity. I think they deliberately used the idea of a Father opposting a gender non-conforming male because we all know gender non-conforming, gay, males who’s fathers had a hard time accepting having a gay son. So, let me present an alternative scenario.  Supposing a young girl, with no history of any difficulty with their birth sex suddenly identifies as “male” in her teens. The mother is aware that her daughter shows autistic traits, or had a traumatic experience with childhood sexual abuse or has been bulllied after declaring herself attracted to females.   The parents are not told about this and their daughter is allowed to express herself as male in school.  She is using male toilets and changing rooms and  she is wearing a breast binder, all unbeknownst to her parents.  She is potentially placing herself at risk,  using male facilities, and potential health issues by extended use of a binder. This can cause breathing difficulties and even , in extreme cases, broken ribs.  This is not suppositiion. There are numerous YouTube influencers who have done all of these things before telling their parents and with the complicity of the school. 

7CBFE26F-F0E2-45FB-AD29-D62468FE3136

What is horrifying is that this guidance consistently ignores safeguarding red flags except when they wish to infer that we parents may be a risk to our children. Bearing in mind this risk appears to relate to parents who are not prepared to affirm a “gender identity” and any medicalised pathway for under-age kids. Does not mean we are not, for example, affirming their sexuality or their desire to mess with expected norms of dress. All of this was pretty standard fare as far back as the 1970’s. What it didn’t mean was that we advocated drugs and surgeries for teenage angst.

Here are all the usual suspects in the list of useful websites. A list of transgender lobbying groups, mainly, and not one womens’s group who might have an alternative perspective on the plight of confused girls. Also not included are any actual Gay Rights organisations. The kind that might take issue with the idea feminine gay males being told they might be girls. Make no mistake I definitely exclude Stonewall from any list of Gay Rights organisations. They have lost all credibility.

I note there is a policy for whistleblowers linked in the guidance. I feel for those teachers, of which I know many, who are apalled at what is going on in schools. Problem is this guidance is everywhere and I expect many teachers feel isolated and afraid to speak up.

This is why I do what I do. Unpaid. If you can help keep be going it would be appreciated. I email all donors and also offer to cover any topic which you may be unable to cover yourself.

If you are salaried but silent you can help me here with a donation. I don’t have any income and this helps pay for books, on this topic, or relevant on-line /conferences. Any amount is appreciated.

This teaching has been going on in our schools now for at least 5 years. We are now seeing the fruits of this propaganda in the generation of teens who are identifying out of their sex.

School Transgender Policy 1. Brighton: Allsorts

Featured

I have done a number of twitter threads on School policies, ostensibly, about protecting “transgender children”.  The only one I have blogged, thus far, focussed on the way they treat parents. We are treated as potential bigots who need educating on Gender Identity issues. The Schools,  invariably, take it upon themselves to keep parents in the dark about our ” Gender Dysphoric” kids.  They blithely inform us our kids are at significant risk of attempting suicide but still think it is good practice to hide pertinent information from parents. You can read that post here: Putting the Loco in Loco Parentis.   

I will now do a series on the policies I have found. Some have already been withdrawn but we need to preserve a record of the extent of the policy capture. Note that this series will be repetitive as they are clearly modelled on a small number of templates. The poor practice is widespread due to the cut and paste nature of the policies. The positive aspect of this is that we can recapture in the same way. We only need sensible templates that balance the needs of kids with Gender Dysphoria, with the protected characteristic of sex. We also need schools to stop usurping Parental Responsiblity to the extent they have done. I know of multiple parents who only found out their daughters were adopting male identities, at school, due to an administrative error! This cannot be right.

This document, I have based this on, was revised in 2019. I do have a copy of the 2014 document but I have done this blog based on the later version. You can access the document below:

Allsorts transinclusion jan 2019 update

This document was produced in Brighton which is a city with a such an open minded attitude it calls to mind the redoubtable Magdelen Berns’ quote: Your minds are so open your brains have fallen out”. Brighton has long been a,commendably, friendly city to the Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual community and now it has embraced the mulitplicity of Gender Identities. Brighton institutions are at the forefront of leading a societal change to prioritise “Gender” over Biological Sex. This policy, implicitly, endorses the idea that some of us can be “born in the wrong body” ; there are multiple Gender Identities and there can be a mismatch between Gender and Natal Sex.

In the introduction we are told this is a revised version following input from transgender children and their parents. The other agencies they reference, quote or signpost are listed below. Nearly all of these are Lobbying groups; advocating for the inculcation of Gender Identity Ideology in our schools, Universities and other public, or indeed private, institutions.

Stonewall, Mermaids, Gendered intelligence, Gires.

Educate and Celebrate? 

I can’t possibly include all the clips I made of this document. I will just select the most egregious examples. This guidance is amongst the most blatant in its evangelical zeal to propagate Gender Identity Ideology; to students, staff, parents, governors and wider society. The claim is made that children can choose whether they are “male” or “female”. Sex, it is argued is assigned at birth, whilst, in reality it is observed and recorded bar a tiny number of children whose sex is not apparent because they have Disorders/Differences in sexual development. People with DSDs are routinely wheeled out in this debate but, in fact, do not figure significantly in the Trans community. Gender , we are told, is on a spectrum and the guidance dismisses the idea of sex being either Male or Female. Anyone labouring under the delusion this guidance is merely a way to promote sensitive care for “transgender kids” needs to realise this is actually social engineering.

Here it is made explicit the aim is to challlenge “long accepted ideas of sex and gender”.    

These long accepted ideas include the idea that we are sexually dimorphic species and biological sex is real. One parent even reports that they were pleased the school discussed how to teach about sexual reproduction before their “trans” child had to take the lesson. Since when is it healthy for a pupil to be so coddled they can’t hear scientific facts without a specially tailored lesson?

Next up we look at the practical implications for children with a disordered sense of their sex.

The guidance makes it abundantly clear that any child who feels they are of the opposite sex will be allowed to use the toilets and changing rooms based on their feelings, not their anatomy. They even state that this is because the boy who says he is a girl is actually a real girl and furthermore the school will challenge this wrong think by training and awareness raising. 👇 . Teachers are given scenarios and advise on how to challenge these attitudes.

4C1DA7C8-82C4-477A-B867-875BF9CBA2F2

Children are to be groomed not to raise a rumpus about a person of the opposite sex in the most intimate of settings, Anyone who doesn’t see the safeguarding issues, inherent in this enforced removal of children’s boundaries, is, at best naive, and at worst reckless / with nefarious intent,

Even worse the child with trans status is to be re-educated to revise their own belief of what is socially acceptable Here 👇 the school will actively teach the child to ignore the “unwritten” rules about which toilets to use, Notice that in this clip they suddenly shift to “public” toilets. Could that be because they know schools are legally obliged to provide single sex toilet facilities? Furthermore the school, in the name of the trans child’s privacy will withhold the information from other pupils and parents. Thus a female child is to share spaces with penis bearing “girls” and her consent to this is disregarded.

I am a parent of a trans-identified male (biological kind) he did NOT use female spaces. Still doesn’t. No harm has come to him. See also @FionneOrlander. Fionne doesn’t use female spaces out of respect and, interestingly, because it “feels too much like male entitlement”.

In order to ensure the girl (or boy) knows what is expected of them their biology lessons will be tailored to reinforce the primacy of gender identity over biological sex.

C022C433-2123-4AE7-B618-85725CB0A9E4

I presume this teaching strategy was endorsed at the highest levels in the school and nobody had a moments disquiet? Nobody! I know from my own son’s, school that the biology teacher felt obliged to apologise for the way she had to teach about reproductive biology. Thankfully she taught the biological facts but with the caveat that she knew this was old-fashioned.

As this pack originated in Brighton most of the pack assumes that the school will be working with the trans child and their parents. It does, however, seem they anticipate some parental resistance and not just from the other parents. They recognise that some pupils may not have “supportive” parents and they outline strategies for dealing with the non-compliant parents. They just won’t tell them! They even make sure their computer system is adapted so the teachers, ancillary staff and even the other pupils, will know your child is identifying as the opposite sex and you, the parent, will be kept in the dark! 👇

Suicide risk. 

I have written many times about the suicide statistics quoted in this document.  The school claims 48% of trans identifying children will attempt suicide.3D9F05DD-E80E-4152-B759-52E9CF0D5D01C20D30C3-6839-428E-AC48-70A2FA51DBEF

 This report they quote is based  on a tiny sample of self-reported attempts.  (13 out of 27 young people) It’s flawed data and shouldn’t be used . You can read more on this here Suicide in the Trans Community.

Parental Responsibility. 

The fact remains the school assert that  a specific demographic is at high risk of attempting suicide and yet they still state there’s no safeguarding risk.   They regard themselves as entitled to withhold  information from parents as a result of a condition which may result in significant self-harm or death.  Furthermore the only time they do recognise any safeguarding issues is when they may apply to the parents. 👇.  The framing of this advice is deliberately worded to paint the father as unsympathetic to a non gender conforming male child. 👇 Parents who affirm the new identity are described as doing their “best to work alongside their child”. The school is to be a safe environment for the vulnerable child which implies the non-affirming,  home environment is unsafe.  This impression is strengthened by the reference at the end. The inference is that non-affirming parents may be more likely to be a risk to their child.  

So, let me present an alternative scenario.  Supposes a young girl, with no history of any difficulty with their birth sex suddenly identifies as “male” in her teens. The mother is aware that her daughter shows autistic traits, or had a traumatic experience with childhood sexual abuse or has been bulllied after declaring herself attracted to females.   The parents are not told about this and their daughter is allowed to express herself as male in school.  She is using male toilets and changing rooms and  she is wearing a breast binder, all unbeknownst to her parents.  She is potentially placing herself at risk,  using male facilities, and potential health issues by extended use of a binder. This can cause breathing difficulties and even , in extreme cases, broken ribs.  This is not suppositiion. There are numerous YouTube influencers who have done all of these things before telling their parents and with the complicity of the school. 

Social Engineering?

Here is another startling clip from the guidance. Here they assert that Every Person will experience this disassociation from their biological sex. Yes! Most people don’t conform to the stereotypical expectations for their sex 100% so why are we pathologising this?   Below we are also told that some people maybe “partially male and partially female“.  This is beginning to look like a recruitment drive.  It also doesn’t make any sense. The first sentence imputes that we all have a gender identity but the final one allows someone to identify as “agender” . Even ten years ago we would have laughed this guidance out of court.  Now we actually having to threaten, or actually undertake, Judicial Reviews to reinstate  logic and reason into the school policies. 6DE0D5CF-9366-4D63-A133-2552F6D4C573

The Trans Umbrella

Another interesting aside is the school’s decision to leave out “Cross-Dressers” from within the school context, even though they are included in the Trans Umbrella, according to Stonewall. 

64B1D791-21B3-4E1E-94A3-247CFB9E3C22

Ostensibly this is becase we know many young people play “dress-up” and, allegedly, the authors wish to avoid confusion.   Really?  I am an adult and I find this entire document mind bogglingly confusing. Could it also be that the authors of this report don’t want to trigger the idea of  sexually motivated transvestites?  Dressing in female clothes, for the purposes of sexual arousal, is a known male paraphilia.  Yet, under this ideology, these males are “trans” and, whilst the law allows males to be excluded from single sex spaces, many organisations have unilaterally changed spaces to include people who identify as “transgender” and as a “woman”.

The pack provides a handy crib sheet to emphasise key learning points, lest you forget.7C7B48D3-FDDD-464A-97CF-4F0D975A5041

The report then proceeds to quote some research from 2014 which highlights that over 90% of LGBTQ+ people report that they learnt nothing about trans in their sex and relationships education. Fast forward 6 years and it is ubiquitous! Yet we are all supposed to pretend there is some mystery about a massive spike in referrals to Gender Identity Clinics! We are actually inculcating it by teaching it to our vulnerable kids.

This next paragraph reads as if someone wanted to pack in as many types of oppression that the school needs to tackle.  On a surface level this is all highly laudable but are they actually consistent with this guidance?   I would argue they are not.

C634525D-7ED2-47E9-8D72-0CEE3383CA6C

Any problems encountered by trans identifying people are above dismissed as being due to “transphobia“. This word is so over-used in the twitter sphere, and the media generally, as to be virtually meaningless. Recognising biological sex is real, being a Lesbian who is not attracted to people with penises, wanting a member of the female sex to perform intimate examinations. All of these are routinely described as “transphobic”. The idea that “transphobia” may be linked to “sexist and stereotypical ideas about what it means to be a man or a woman” is counter-factual. What this is saying is that if you compute someones biological sex, which lets face it is evolutionarily hard-wired, you are being “transphobic”. How has such an ideology taken hold in a rational society?

Yet in the next breath we are told that Gender is a social construct and learned behaviour. Children, we are told learn how to behave in line with the expectations for their sex. Thus far I agree. This includes “roles, clothing and activities”. However anyone who doesn’t conform is not necessarly showing us an indication of their gender identity. Again. Butch Lesbians, Femme Gay males and in fact many, many, heterosexual men and women don’t conform to varying degrees. That is because it is based on a social construct. So why are we medicalising gender conformity to mimic the sexual characteristics of the opposite sex if “gender” is just a social construct? Why not, instead, challenge the Social Construct?

I am no closer to finding a definition of  “Gender Identity” that doesn’t rely on socially constructed idea of “Gender” which are derived from sex (and often sexist) stereotypes.  We have already been told that it is not connected to Gender Expression.  A boy can be a boy and wear a dress.  (Seriously have these people never heard of David Beckham in a skirt of Marilyn the Gender Rebel popstar and celebrity, or an androgynous Annie Lennox).  This stuff is not new.  We could go back to the Eighteenth Century where Dandy’s were common in certain circles.  Alternatively Ann Lister in the 19th Century and Radclyffe Hall in the twentieth.  (Notice that the many/most were homosexual) . 

The nearest definition occurs in this clip on Sexual Orientation which manages to redefine homosexuality to water down the homosexual element, with the addition of “romantically attracted”. It also assigns sexual fluidity to Gay males, and Lesbians, who fought long and hard to win the right to exclusive same sex attraction. 

1CD5A0D8-D2EF-40F8-B70C-DC06237720CB

So it is defined as an “internal sense of self”.  An entirely unverifiable definition.  How does a man know what it feels like to be a woman?  He can’t.  There is no right way to be a woman. We are women by virtue of our sex.  Some of us are more aligned to expectations for our sex and some of us are less so.  A butch lesbian is a woman by virtue of her sex  not by how well she performs the sex stereotypes encoded in “gender”.  Same with a “femme” gay male.  Notice that sexual orientation is now defined to include attraction by virture of sex and Gender Identity.  The notion that someones sexuality can change over time is also slipped in. This allows males to describe themselves as Lesbians and Trans Men to identify as gay males.  How this watering down of sexual orientation has been endorsed by erstwhile Gay Rights groups, like Stonewall, is a question that will result in PhDs.  One Day!

Hate Crimes

Another common theme is the encouragement to record “transphobic incidents”.  Here an incident is to be labelled “transphobic” if there is a trans child in the class the incident will be challenged and recorded.  However the pack also warns teachers that more serious incidents should be reported to the police. Worth noting that women are not protected by Hate Crime legislation because misogyny is not covered.  Not to worry. Men are so busy killing us we don’t have the energy to get upset about being mis-gendered. Note, I am not being flippant here, hate crimes are recorded in accordance with the self-perception of the person doing the reporting.  Using factually correct pronouns has been reported to the police and will be recorded as a hate incident. 

Medical Transition

In common with all of the packs I have read the guidance also includes details about how children with gender identity issues can seek medical support.  This pack was written in 2019 but even then there was disquiet about describing some of these interventions in the way they are described here.  The very idea that a school guidance pack contains detailed information about a serious medical intervention is anathema to any idea of child safeguarding.  Blocking Puberty is not merely a “suspension” and as I have covered in my blogs on puberty blockers. Puberty Blockers. Part One

The  way they are talked about here is reckless and ill informed. 👇97274C43-5E0F-40B2-9638-C473BF2BB085

Even more reckless is the way the pack signposts ways to circumvent delays in accessing treatment. If you don’t want kids/parents to use doctors over the internet why are you telling kids/Parents that it is possible. This looks disingenuos to me. Signposting with a note of caution looks like an attempt to claim “plausible deniability”

Female Sports

Another issue that the guidance glosses over is the physical differences in males and females when it comes to sport.  Certainly by the time my sons were 11 they towered above me and thereafter rapidly proceeded to a male puberty that conferred many sporting advantages.  This scenario, to deal with a parental complaint, is grossly dishonest. 1B156B7D-7F9B-4063-8986-555DCA538E9F

Some sporting bodies have cravenly capitulated to the lobby groups and include players on the basis of Gender Identity. This has resulted in females losing to male players in fields such as cycling, boxing and cricket. In the UK, fear of lawsuits due to injury, I assume, has prompted the resignation of Rugby referees because of the danger to female players forced to play against males. The battle over women’s sports is , however, far from over. The long term consequences for females entering sport will be massive if they learn very early on that there is simply no point in taking part in an unfair competition with the odds stacked against them.

Woke Red Guards?

Bring me the child at seven and i will bring you the (wo) man.  This image is included in the pack showing how children as young as seven are now parroting the idea that they are not the right sex, 

D28DDE75-8877-4E3D-93C5-5D5EB6956C71

This teaching has been going on in our schools now for at least 5 years. We are now seeing the fruits of this propaganda in the generation of teens who are identifying out of their sex.

I want to end with a particularly ridiculous scenario. One that has in fact played out at my son’s school. They have a handful of girls who identify as boys. One of them has had two male names and has reported people for using their last deadname, even though male. They play on the female netball team but reported their teacher for use of the word “girls” when cheering on the team. We are handing over an unprecedented amount of power to troubled kids. Is it surprising that some want to wield that power? Children as young as 7 are repeating the ideas they have been taught. The pack includes this drawing done by a seven year old.

Here the teacher is instructed to follow the child’s instructions about their pronoun use, even though they are Gender Fluid and may wish to be addressed differently on any given day. Remember it is not appropriate, we are told, to conflate Gender Expression with Gender Identity so here is the solution….

In the Chinese Cultural Revolution children were indoctrinated into the new religion via state education. Teachers were denounced, humiliated for not complying. Many went to their deaths, some betrayed by their own children. Children even changed their names to disassociate from their families.

I am not equating the rise of Woke Ideology with the Cultural Revolution in terms of scale and consequences but there are worrying parallels. The righteousness of the proponents of Gender Ideology who are so convinced they are on The Right Side Of History bring to mom this quote from James Baldwin.

Queering the NSPCC? Part 9: Asexuality

Featured

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children dates back well over a century.  It was granted a Royal Charter, by Queen Victoria, in 1895.  The NSPCC is the only UK charity which has been granted statutory powers under the Children Act 1989, allowing it to apply for care and supervision orders for children at risk.  Childline, the charity founded by Esther Rantzen, became part of the NSPCC in 2006.

Coming out as Asexual! 

The NSPCC/ChildLine content manages to have two young women who come out as Asexuals.   Their content seems to have no space for Lesbians/Gay males unless a) they don’t mention the word Lesbian b) they identify as Queer and acknowledge the fluidity of sexual attraction.  Yet this niche identity (asexual)  is given two out of the 24 videos on  LGBTQ+ content. 

Here is a transcript which covers both videos: Asexuality on Childline Yasmin and Amelia

You can watch them  here: Yasmin  and Amelia here. 

Yasmin talks us through the trauma of multiple exits from the closet and the need to educate the bemused recipients of the asexual  announcements.  People have a lot of controversial opinions about Yasmin’s experience and seem a tad confused.   I am not sure what Yasmin has, or has not, done to generate this confusion.  Apparently ChildLine seem to think this is a pressing issue to cover so they have helpfully signposted more content on asexuality to clear up any confusion. B3969325-E344-49AB-BA01-42AA750A4C4A

Amelia tells us that she also got confused after all the interrogation,  oops reasonable questions, that came her way.  This is the logical conclusion of the Queer take-over of, once venerable, Gay Rights organisations.  Pretty much everyone fits under the  Queer umbrella these days. These new identities are an insult to the very real fight to get legal protections for Sexual orientation.EB5A5874-5666-48B6-9B43-68C0CEF57DA7  

Another recurrent feature of the ChildLine content is the reckless promotion of YouTube content.  Narcissists are ten a penny on YouTube. They make their money by attracting viewers, likes and sensational/ pseudo edgy content. For many of them this is their bread and butter and the content is carefully curated to stay relevant.   Not once, in all the LGBTQ+ content, on the ChildLine YouTube,  do they offer any words of caution about the content providers they profile.  It is reckless to use Social Media Influencers in this way.  Their raison d’etre is not Child Safeguarding, it’s maintaining audience, influence  and revenue. This is not compatible with what SHOULD be the aims of ChildLine/NSPCC. 

Yasmin’s contribution is, however, nothing compared to the self-absorbed contribution from Amelia. Adolescents, or immature adults, setting themselves up as self-appointed experts, are simply not equipped to give good advice to children /teens.  Amelia is also asexual.  Below is a long excerpt to give you an idea of the word salad being dished out to gullible children.  What a load of (Judith) Butler Bollox. 👇👇

Obfuscation masquerading as Education!

So, asexuality like a lot of things to do with gender and sexuality, is something of a spectrum. Asexual is an identity on it’s own, but it’s also an umbrella term or, erm, like  a spectrum term for a wider group who have similar experiences. There’s demisexuality and grey-asexuality or greysexuality, and these are both identities that fall under  the asexual umbrella. Demisexuality is somebody who doesn’t experience sexual attraction until there’s a strong emotional bond formed. And this isn’t the same thing as like waiting till marriage or something. It’s about not feeling sexual attraction until you are entirely comfortable with someone.”

I predict a great career in Academia for Amelia. Watch out Sally Hines! The next generation is snapping at your heels.

Here is Amelia on Grey-sexuality. I am almost too bored to attempt to define grey-sexuality/grey-asexuality. Seems some people, who fall under the “ACE” umbrella, experience little or no sexuality. Even when they do experience it they may not be able to summon the energy/ inclination to act up on it. This might describe every mum with a new baby / toddler but we just called it “knackered” .

In another revealing quote Amelia seems unable/unwilling to give an honest reflection on what underpins SEXual attraction. In the world of multiple “Gender Identities” , it is an unpardonable offence to acknowledge biological sex. Here is Amelia on sexual attraction 👇Can’t say I have ever fallen in love with a voice but I am sure there is a sexual identity, to cover this, on its way. We could nominate Louis Armstrong for this one.

Lest you confuse asexuality, with people not having sex, Amelia is careful to explain that some asexual people do have relationships and sexual relationships, presumably in an asexual way. Fair play to anyone who can sustain a libido faced with this level of self-absorption!
Do not let our legislators accept this absolutely incoherent ideology as a basis for law.

Fuck The Wokerati; The Surrendered Polyamorous; The Don’t Fuck Me Pumps wearing; The Educate Yourself crowd have destroyed any joy in sexuality. Of any orientation or none.

Queering the NSPCC? Part 8: Sexual Identity and Gender Identity

Featured

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children dates back well over a century.  It was granted a Royal Charter, by Queen Victoria, in 1895.  The NSPCC is the only UK charity which has been granted statutory powers under the Children Act 1989, allowing it to apply for care and supervision orders for children at risk.  Childline, the charity founded by Esther Rantzen, became part of the NSPCC in 2006.

Steph on Sexuality and Gender Identity. 

This is a companion piece to my previous blog on content by ChildLine. I was curious to look at what content kids would encounter if they followed Steph on their main account.  You can read the previous blog, on Steph here.   

For those of us with  children, caught up in this, it is really important to understand the evolution of this ideology and how it has been fostered in our young.   ChildLine, as it turns out, is relentless in peddling Gender Ideology, under the badge of LGBTQ+ content.  Our same sex attracted youth are therefore getting signposted to Transgender content, relentlessly,  as I hope I have shown in this series on the NSPCC. 

Steph has been given a public platform to explain their experience of being Transgender. I have expressed my misgivings about ChildLine using Social Media influencers in this way. They  may be able to control the content on their channel (which is,  in my view, bad enough) but where is the  due diligence on content only be a few clicks away?  Curious or confused children/teens will explore the content of the contributors. 

This is a transcript; which is based on various vidoes on Steph’s YouTube channel: Steph Kyriacou discusses sexuality

This is a public figure, by virtue of the NSPCC/ChildLine connection, and their own social media presence.  It is important that people are able to examine the thought processes underpinning Gender Identity Ideology.  Put crudely this is the idea some people are #BornInTheWrongBody. I regard this generation of Social Media advocates as victims of the same ideology using them as mouth pieces.  I have nothing but compassion for the young women, and men, caught up in this belief system.  However those in Senior roles, at the NSPCC, are entirely culpable for the, uncritical, dissemination of Gender Identity Ideology, to vulnerable children/teens. 

Am I bisexual? 

First up are some quotes from this YouTube video from August 2019. Am I bisexual? 

In this post, Steph acknowledges a struggle to accept their same sex attraction when they identified as a Lesbian.  Now, a post Testosterone, post double mastectomy, self-identified man, they find themselves also attracted to “men” and struggling to come out.  

So, we have a clear acknowledgment they struggled to accept their same sex attraction. There is a rather moving post about how their, Greek Orthodox, grandparents accepted them coming out as a Transgender man. Yet no parallel “coming out” story, as a Lesbian, to relatives,

A later clip from that same video explains that Steph is now struggling to accept their attraction to “men”. They made this announcement on Bi-Visibility Day. Multiple “coming outs” are a feature of many of the young Social Influencers who’s content seems mainly driven adopting new “identities”. or Sexualities.

Trans Firsts!

Here is some of Steph’s content, from September 2018, on Trans Firsts: https://youtu.be/7v6E1gkVFtU

Influenced by YouTube content, Steph went ahead and bought their first binder. In secret. Without telling another soul. Bearing in mind that the NSPCC is promoting this YouTuber and it only took me a couple of clips to access all Steph’s on line content. Other low points are a product review for “packers” i.e. a prosthetic penis which, they advise their younger viewers, are available from Sex Shops. Below is another common occurrence. The YouTubers often reference other prominent “trans guys” and how much influence they had on their own “journey”.

Dating as a Trans Guy!

Next up, also from September 2018, is a post on Dating as a Trans Guy: https://youtu.be/D0ezulmqhvg

Here are some quotes. I had to condense some of the comments but the original content is linked above so you can see I have not distorted the intent.

An unexpected development, as Steph explains, is the change to their, perceived, dating pool since coming out as a man.

I will return to the above interpretation in an earlier YouTube, by Steph.

Here Steph re-calibrates who is expected to be in their dating pool. Before identifying as a man heterosexual females were accepted as being off limits. Steph listed the multiple ways females are now identifying. Lesbians, Pan (sexual) girls, bi (sexual) girls, queer girls etc. However Steph always believed “straight” girls were off limits, until they were a “Man”.

Unlike the many male, often fully male-bodied, “Lesbians” ; who feel entitled to be in a Lesbian dating pool, Steph, now embraces? accepts? being excluded by females who are attracted to females.

This would almost be a refreshing change, if Trans-Identified males accepted their exclusion from Lesbian dating pools. What is absolutely heart-breaking is a same sex attracted female doing a reverse #CottonCeiling and prioritising their gender identity over their sex, and sexual attraction.

Steph, in this video, has a revelation about the new inclusion of straight girls in their dating pool. Its astonishing how dismissive this movement is about sexual orientation whether gay, lesbian or hetereosexual. The tone in which the “whatever, you do you, date whoever you want” has a, not so subtle, under-current of disdain for the bigotted, dick loving, straight girls.

Guess what Steph? You don’t get to decide who includes you in their dating pools. You might well find yourself excluded from Lesbian dating preferences. They love women and you are in flight from your sex and, seemingly, your sexual orientation. Personally I would exclude any male who remains heterosexual but wishes to identify as a woman. I don’t want anyone in flight from their sex in my sex life! Or anyone who fetishises my own sex, but that’s a different story.

Drunk Chat : Two Trans Guys!

Next up is from March 2017. https://youtu.be/aF-PCVqUV68 Steph and another “trans guy” are having a bit of a drunk chat about some of their social experiences and being mis-identified. I assume the intermittent burping is based on an assumption that this is what boys do? (I mean, they might but it looks a little bit performative to me…) . This video explicity tells you that you can try to teach a “Cis-Person “the right way of thinking”. Yes they really did say this. If the Cis-Person doesn’t learn and respect your identity then, apparently, you can tell them to Fuck Off! I don’t think there is any self-awareness that redefining the rest of the population as “Cis” is hardly a marker of respect for who we are….Just ARE. Not something we identify as….

This was what triggered the backlash against the Cis Community.. Somebody mistook them for Lesbians and Women. Oh The HORROR!

Coming Out via a Revolving Door!

Next up is from January 2017 and is a retrospective review of Steph’s , multiple, coming out stories. https://youtu.be/HZLKBjxzkB8

Steph had crushes on girls but did not really understand this was what they were. At age 16 they started to get asked questions from their friends about their sexuality. Friends began asking them if they were “bisexual” . Steph, at this point, is adamant that they were in fact straight. This was a very emphatic statement no doubt reflective of the lack of acceptance, in her school that Steph highlights.

Here Steph acknowledges her struggle to accept her Lesbian sexuality at age 16. This is still such a difficult time for young people; who can be aware of being different long before understanding their sexual orientation. While Stonewall are busy, chasing the Trans Dollar, they are ignoring the homophobia, which never went away. It is still incredibly difficult to come to terms with same sex attraction. Those of us with gay offspring know this. We would have welcomed better sex education in school to foster acceptance of different sexual orientations. However this opportunity has been squandered because of the nefarious inclusion of “Gender Identity Ideology”. The new sex education is actively harmful for our gay youth. I would go to prison before I would accept the compulsory indoctrination of our kids in Queer Theory. Here is some research on the negative impact of homophobia on Gender Identity.

Homophobic Bullying & Gender Identity

As you can see above. Steph followed a familiar path in first identifying as Bisexual and then finally acknowledging their exclusive sexual attraction to females. HALLELULAH!

It did not last long, sadly. Steph gives us a detailed, if somewhat convoluted, explanation about ditching the label Gay Woman to identify as non-binary. This was a stepping stone to identifying as Queer; because if you don’t identify with either sex how can you be homosexual?

Next up in the mulitple identity disorders, Steph finally identifies as a Trans Man.

As Steph says, they have come out multiple times over the period of six years. The final irony is, in order to embrace their same sex orientation, they identify as a man attracted to other men. It turns out this includes transmen. Hey presto. You can identify as a gay man, keep your queer label and choose someone from the same sex as your partner. Turns out this is exactly what Steph did. Acknowledged their attraction to male, met a boy they liked. Boy then became their boyfriend. I had a look and the new boyfriend was another YouTuber, Nate, who is also a trans man.

We are through the looking glass.

Queering the NSPCC? Part 7: Trans Identity

Featured

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children dates back well over a century.  It was granted a Royal Charter, by Queen Victoria, in 1895.  The NSPCC is the only UK charity which has been granted statutory powers under the Children Act 1989, allowing it to apply for care and supervision orders for children at risk.  Childline, the charity founded by Esther Rantzen, became part of the NSPCC in 2006.

Trans Identity :  Steph 

You can watch it here

You can read a transcript here Trans Identity Steph

Here Steph talks, to Cora,  about the need for Trans Visibility and the difficulties of being “trans” .  These were highlighted by a  list of perceived injustices and lots of instructions about how to be a Trans Ally.  The abuse that Steph relates is  focussed on being perceived  as female and treated  accordingly.  This is an important point. Recognition of biological reality is not a learned prejudice.  It’s hard-wired. It’s evolutionary.   It’s not akin to racial prejudice or other socialised bigotry.  It’s a basic recognition system.   This is how Steph defines transphobic behaviour. 👇

A33950FC-10A4-4C31-A9D6-0DABC6EBF43B

The interviewer responds with statistical reports of how unsafe “trans” people feel at school. If this includes “misgendering” calling it abuse is a stretch. At this stage school children are not going to be on cross-sex hormones (normally) under the age of 16.  Hence females who wish to be recognised, as male,  are demanding we validate an identity at odds with biological reality/appearance. 

20E013D1-58FC-4F42-A1AC-2B139D0CB036

Whilst many people argue we should just  #BeKind, because this is just  simple courtesy,  in reality we are asked for a lot more  than maintaining a polite fiction. The nature of these demands soon becomes more explicit. Steph regards sex segregated spaces as an affront to their identity.  Therefore they demand that the  privacy and dignity of both sexes should be sacrificed to appease  a tiny minority,  who feel at odds with their biological sex. I would suggest it is no accident that a member of the female sex is presenting this argument. We all know these arguments sound very different when the advocate is a pre-op male.  Once again #SexMatters and this is the reason  a female person, is frequently wheeled out  to demand that women & girls give up our boundaries. 

Steph is typical of proponents of Gender Ideology who constantly intones some version of “Educate Yourself” . We have heard this many times so guess what Steph? We did exactly that and what we learned did not reassure us. Not. One. Iota.

This is a rather gentle introduction which begins with a suggestion that any re-education begins gently.. but “and then if they refuse to listen, you can just block them”

It is well worth counting up how many times we are enjoined to educate ourselves; whilst being presented with incoherent narratives to explain what being Transgender encompasses. Some people may identify as male or female. Some identify as neither. Some move between male and female and are Gender Fluid. Some will have surgery and hormones, others either or neither. We are being asked to believe six impossible things before breakfast.

Not content with proselytising this ideology personally Steph also demands State sponsored “education” which inculcates children in Gender Identity Ideology.

In fact transgender guidance packs are being rolled out to most schools. Yet so many of them have been removed because they have been found to be unlawful, particularly around legal duties under the , legally, protected characteristic of Sex. It is concerning to see the NSPCC endorsing this ideology and completely ignoring the significant impact on the rights of girls.

Already Local Authorities have been forced to withdraw the guidance they have been placing in schools. Warwickshire, Cornwall, Shropshire, Barnsley are just a few of the councils who have withdrawn their guidance. This followed complaints/ Legal Challenge. Organisations like Safe Schools Alliance and Transgender Trend have been at the forefront of challenging this guidance. I have read multiple packs myself and wrote this blog about how they treat parents. Putting the Loco in Loco Parentis. Cannot stress enough to CHECK THE SCHOOL GUIDANCE.

Another striking , and worrying, aspect of the ChildLine YouTube are the alerts to what they believe is related /appropriate content.

Here Steph talks about being in an environment, where they are not respected and understood. The context is not honouring preferred pronouns and Gender Identity. What pops as suggested content? An article about suicide by another ChildLine Contributor. The use of the suicide narrative is a deeply problematic aspect of the campaigns for “Transgender Children’s” rights. I have written about this here. Suicide in the Trans Community

Here is another link to suggested content. 👇

We have already established the low bar for defining things as “Transphobic” but here ChildLine suggests content on dealing with “Hate Crime”. The afore-mentioned School packs on “Transgender Guidance” are also overly keen to badge benign comments as Hate Crimes and some even include a form to facilitate reporting staff and pupils to the police! In the guidance written for Cornwall the pack is even co-written with a serving Police Officer & Transphobia is highlighted as a crime! 👇

Here the ChildLine lines up more content on Transgender Issues. These signpost medical transition for non-binaries and one promotes access to Puberty Blockers.

I covered Alex Bertie and Charlie Martin, talking about Puberty in an earlier part of my series on NSPCC/ChildLine Content. On Steph’s personal YouTube account we learn it was Alex Bertie who first attracted Steph to binding their breasts. Alex Bertie was also promoting a specific brand , of binder, on their youtube account.

This content I also covered. Fox Fisher is a well known Trans Activist. Mr Lewzer is a trans-identifying female who has a following for comedic content; where they pose as their bearded mother. I know from my own offspring that Mr Lewzer’s content is very popular with Gender Confused teens.

My next piece will be a look at the belief system of this ChildLine contributor. The NSPCC seems to have a strategy of harnessing the Social Media presences of these young people. Unfortunately many of them have content that is deeply damaging to confused children /teens. Indeed many of the ones with Gender Identity Issues appear to have significant struggles of their own. Children are being directed to content which seems to immerse them in the topic. Nowhere does the NSPCC. raise concerns /flag that YouTube content is not always a reliable source. In fact, many of their interviewees sing the praises of YouTube content. This is not entirely surprising since many of them make money, even a living out of their content.

Queering the NSPCC? Part 6: Pansexual

Featured

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children dates back well over a century.  It was granted a Royal Charter, by Queen Victoria, in 1895.  The NSPCC is the only UK charity which has been granted statutory powers under the Children Act 1989, allowing it to apply for care and supervision orders for children at risk.  Childline, the charity founded by Esther Rantzen, became part of the NSPCC in 2006.

What does it mean to be Pansexual? 

This episode features an interview with Gemma here to educate us about pansexuality. 

You can watch it here

You can read a transcript Pan Sexuality Gemma NSPCC

As far as I can ascertain pansexual is a Woke version of bisexual designed to elide the “sex” in sexual and divorce it from sexual attraction. In the grand scheme of things this, I assume, makes no difference to bisexuals,  who are attracted to both sexes. Where it becomes problematic is the idea that same sex orientation (a legally protected characteristic in the U.K.) is somehow outdated and insufficiently inclusive of anyone of the opposite sex. It seems designed to mandate inclusion of anyone who has a “Gender Identity” at odds with their biological sex.   Anyone paying attention will know that activists frequently describe exclusive same sex orientation as “transphobic”.  See #CottonCeiling and, latterly #BoxerCeiling.  The creeping invalidation of exclusion, on the grounds of sex, has a particular resonance for the Gay community who have only recently, 2010 in the UK, achieved their legally protected status. 

The framing of the discussion is interesting. First of all Gemma explains what pansexuality means.👇 As you can see there are no exclusions from Genma’s dating pool. She includes everyone. Regardless of sex, or presentation. 96E0AD78-8CEF-41FB-8B78-293AE4FD1479

The next sentence  implies some moral superiority to Gemma’s stance with this glib statement. Gemma has an all-seeing ability to see beyond such superficial fripperies of biological sex to the essence of what a person is. Whatever that means!  The implication is that people operating a dating pool based on sexual orientation are somehow basing this on surface level judgements.  This is the subtle shaming at play. 

D724C095-3C3A-4661-AB8A-AD835A6AC365

This professed ability, expressed by a young woman, could merely be dismissed as the righteousness of naive youth. Unfortunately it has infected our body politic as demonstrated by Pansexual Layla, recent candidate for the Leadership of the Liberal Democrat’s and also a pansexual.  Here’s Layla on her stance on access to single sex spaces.  You can find this clip on Hansard (A written record of U.K parliamentary proceedings.)
 
CE67184B-802B-453A-9D6D-167E19E7FF04
 
Next up Poppy repeats another fallacy; which is propagated relentlessly in this “debate”. The idea that science has discovered some new facts that prove Humans are not sexually dimorphic is pure propaganda. 
 
E790A65A-211C-4835-91E4-89C6A01C8D16
 
Nothing has changed Poppy!  Except the emergence of an  ideology predicated on convincing society the shape shifting idea of “Gender” has to take primacy over Biological Sex.  Claire Ainsworth’s article is routinely quoted to argue that biological sex has been debunked, Here is what she had to say along with a similiar statement by Professor Curtis. 
 
0B097F1D-8EA8-4221-A030-8F6573F7FB9C
 
 
At the risk of repeating myself, here is the result of research into the prevalence of chromosomal abnormalities in referrals to Gender Identity clinics.  They are not a statistically, significant feature and hence routine karyotype tests, to determine chromosomal abnormalities, were abandoned some years ago. 
 
51D27DA6-0FFB-40BC-B9FA-847FD380DF24
 
If anyone wants to know why “intersex” conditions or, Differences/Disorders of sexual development, figure so prominently in this discussion I cover it in this blog; based on the work of an autogynephilic (AGP)  transsexual.  The argument centres on a psychological need for AGP males to claim a biological basis for their condition, a sort of “intersex brain”.  It drove the diagnostic criteria for Gender Dysphoria and is, in my view. key to understanding the landscape and the trans activists mind set. 
 
This is why young activists make nonsensical claims such as these 👇.  
 
715BCBA4-2B81-4C0C-B8EB-01C725FAFAC3
 
 
If it was just a bunch of young people spouting this, and it wasn’t influencing laws /public policy, I could be sanguine about the folly of youth.  I used to like the Bay City Rollers. Unfortunately this type of thinking is now widespread across our media and has a footing in every political party.  
 
So where did Gemma come across the term pansexual asks Poppy.  To no great surprise, here is her answer.   
EBF2BBAB-20F7-4F0F-BEED-F040C376F5AE
 
 
I will accept all and every criticism that I am being a bit ageist in my dismissal of Generation Gemma.  I am.  Gemma has a benevolent ageism  of her own going on.  After providing us with her understanding of the development of the nomenclature from bisexual to pansexual, Gemma offers a dispensation for anyone to choose which label suits them or to reject them all (How Generous!).  Though you may need to use the term bisexual to explain it to parents and grandparents because “I think it’s easier for them to understand and grasp”.  Gee, thanks for thinking of us! Is this what’s known as an unreaonable adjustment? Not patronising at all. 
 
No interview on this topic would be complete without reference to living authentically, bullying, and the need to keep safe. If anyone has any statistics the pansexual murder rate, do let me know. Gemma also recommends  joining your local LGBT group (I would avoid at all costs for any kid confused about their sexuality.).   ChildLine are also recommended, as you would expect.  If I have not convinced you to avoid like the plague, by now, one of us has failed.

Queering the NSPCC? Part Four: Queer Bodies

Featured

The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children dates back well over a century.  It was granted a Royal Charter, by Queen Victoria, in 1895.  The NSPCC is the only UK charity which has been granted statutory powers under the Children Act 1989, allowing it to apply for care and supervision orders for children at risk.  Childline, the charity founded by Esther Rantzen, became part of the NSPCC in 2006.

ChildLine Queer Bodies

This is the fourth in a series looking at ChildLine content and how it  promotes Transgender Ideology to children /teens. Gender Identity Ideology saturates their content. Some  examples are more egregious than others.  This interview 👇, for example, has some good content. It begins with a discussion about pressures on children / teens in the Queer community or LGBTQ+. The subject of the interview would appear to be a  Gay male (Roly) who formerly  identified as a twink  and now has moved on to identify as non-binary and Gender Fluid.

Here is the link to the youtube Link

Here is a transcript: Queer Bodies Alana and Roly

AE055766-3B1C-4862-A45F-0D7D1D7C816C

Pressures on Gay Men

It begins well. The two discuss pressure on Gay men to  present as “preened and buff“.  Roly highlights an internal contradiction. He  finds these images appealing  whilst, simultaneously, acknowledging the pressure it generates. He is also  keen to point out that he doesn’t judge people on their bodies.  Nevertheless he felt drawn to identify as a twink because it best fits his body type.  One requirement of the twinkdom was to remain skinny and, Roly reveals, this did lead him into an eating disorder.  There is increasing research into eating disorders in gay men so this is an important point to make. We are much more aware of eating disorders in females, and too little attention is given to pressures on homosexual males.  If you are attracted to your own sex, who you find attractive may foster self-criticism  on how you measure up to your own erotic target. This is a particular pressure for same sex attracted males that is worthy of consideration.  If you are a femme gay male attracted to hyper masculine men, could  this pressure motivate  a retreat from identifying as male?  I would have liked to see that explored here.

Alana does, at least, recognise the existence of Lesbian women who, she suggests, “may feel she has to be a lipstick lesbian or a butch lesbian”.   Unfortunately marred by the preceding comment that these pressures co-exist with “trying to work out what your gender is” . My rejoinder is that  10 years ago this pressure didn’t exist!  It’s ubiquity, now, shows every sign of being iatrogenic, Endless content, such as this,  in the ChildLine youtube channel is fostering this disassociation from biological reality.

Segues into Trans Identity.

Thus, after a token consideration of the L & G,   the conversation moves on to claim  how much harder this is for Trans people. The remainder of the interview is all about the T.  This seems to be the standard trajectory, a nod to the homosexual community, quickly  followed by discussion diverting to yet more  Transgender Ideology.

E625B773-0DE3-4AB3-B1CC-1035C72856AA

Non-Binary /Gender Fluid

Roly then informs us that he finds it difficult to accept that he is non-binary because he failed to have androgynous role models. Perhaps he should have dug a little deeper into the history of gay men and Gender Non-conforming women?  👇

C9897523-BFF4-4234-9C35-7008F68339EC

After he came out as Gender Fluid, he informs us, “people would look at me and be like but you look you’re a man and so it was a long long journey for me”.  A good therapist, at this point, would perhaps unpick what underpins this claim to be Gender Fluid.  It’s clearly not the way they present and nobody would interpret him as anything other than a biological male.

CE02453B-7D8C-43DB-8645-2D5E48CC4140

ChildLine on YouTube

Another feature of these videos is how effusive the interviewers are about YouTube as a source for support and information. Roly is not alone in saying how much YouTube content helped him find role models.  The better approach would be to reference to how prominent YouTubers carefully curate their content to present an image to their subscribers. Their platform built on an identity and maintaining it can be vital to  continued revenue streams. Typically the Transgender content will be celebratory, not critical. A children’s charity should offer a more skeptical commentary on social influencers. Instead their marketing team seem to be have won the day and collaborations with social media influencers are commonplace.

Gendered Bodies?

Roly provides a rather messianic rant about the imposition of bodily expectations on cross-gendered identities.  Forget what you thought you knew about transsexuals. There is no longer any expectation, on people  who reject their biological sex, to make any effort to assimilate.  The expectations are now on society, to unlearn biological facts, to accept people for who they say they are.   Roly provides this advice/instruction for how to live in the New World Order.

Again, for emphasis, Roly is here endorsing the idea of the Gendered Brain, The idea that Gender Identity exists in the brain,  This performs two functions that harm women. First it endorses the idea of #LadyBrain. Long used to explain why women are unsuited to certain job roles or positions of power. I am not a proponent of blank slate theory. I don’t dismiss some hard-wired differences, related to evolution. However women have always had to contest this area. to separate the science from the propaganda.  Here are two  books that cover this area.

Maybe  our non-binary friend should have undertaken some reading before he posed this head scratcher.

 Without a shred of self-awareness this is what Alana thinks she has done with this interview.  

Teaching children not to obsess ❌. Teaching children to accept themselves ❌.  

Nope. This is exactly the opposite of what you achieved with this interview.

ChildLine content is not fostering self-acceptance. It is contributing to the inculcation of Gender Dysporia, Bodily disassociative disorders and relentlessly pushing Gender Identity Ideology. I wonder if Esther Rantzen has had a look at it lately?

Queering the NSPCC? Part Three: Coming Out Stories

Featured

Lesbian Erasure?

ChildLine : Coming Out Stories

0CEE6DC4-22AD-4A6E-8772-35552BF58CAF

In the third of my posts on the NSPCC, child protection charity, I looked at Coming Out Stories, involving three females and one male.  Callum is a gay male. One of the females identifies as assexual , one bisexual and , despite watching this, and transcribing it, I still don’t know what the final girl identifies as. 😳. This is a video about coming out and , as far as I can tell, Maja didn’t actually come out as anything!  What was noticeable was, out of the three females, not one came out as Lesbian. 

Here is a link to the youtube https://youtu.be/wzw6rGDMqX0

Here is a transcript: ChildLine Coming Out stories Transcription

First question is directed at Calum. He is given, by far, the most air time in this piece. He was aware of his sexuality at a young age and began talking about it, age 8. He soon realised his class mates were not receptive and retreated back into the closet until his early teens. When he did come out, to his parents, they had a hard time accepting it. Calum is thoughtful about his parents attitude and offers a generous interpretation of his parents attitude Whether or not his assessment is overly kind they did get over their misgivings and, thankfully, all is resolved with his family.

Next up is Amelia. Amelia is assexual. She explains that she didn’t realise this until other teenagers started talking about sex. At first, she claims, she thought they were just talking about sex because adults and people on the television were talking about it. When the penny dropped that they actually wanted to have sex she realised her identity. There’s a lot of giggling at this revelation. I am sceptical whether a teenage girl could be so naive about sexual desire but ,as they say, this is her, self-proclaimed, “lived experience”.

Next up is Jenny. She came out as bisexual by casually dropping it into conversation with friends and family. The response, she says is basically “cool”. Only later, when the interviewer, Declan, probed for more negative reactions does she reveal less positive reception. Not abuse, just querying her claim to be a bisexual, whilst in a relationship with a heterosexual male. There’s a bit of baffled incomprehension that people can be so ignorant and Jenny, cue laughter, explains

Next up is Maja. Her experience was that her family never assumed she was straight so she never really needed to come out. If you watch the whole thing you will find that she never actually comes out, in this video, either.

The really positive thing about this video is that all seem to have had relatively easy times coming out (or not) to friends and family. Coming out, as not being into sex p, is a new one for sexual orientations. I suspect most parents would be sanguine about an assexual teenage daughter. It’s unlikely to be high on a list of fears for their daughters, Most of us likely expect a change of heart but that’s another matter.

Another notable feature of the interview is the need to elicit reports of negative reaction. Amelia, the assexual, does urge caution in coming out, in case of abuse or enforced homelessness. I don’t dismiss the vulnerability of sexual minorities to parental rejection, particularly those from some religious homes. I am not sure, however, there are any faiths which would cast you out for being assexual. However I remain concerned that the same may not be true for homosexual teens. Amelias listed the groups vulnerable to prejudice, when coming out, and included trans but didn’t reference Lesbians. Is it only Lesbian love which is the love that dare not speak its name?

Sexual Fluidity.

Maja proffers. another explanation for the lack of an explicit coming out. #SexualFluidity. This is a new narrative, which conforms to Gender Identity Ideology, that sexual orientation is not fixed. On one level letting young women have time to embrace their sexuality seems uncontentious but it does sit uneasily when Lesbians and, to a lesser extent, gay males are being told their, exclusive, Genital preferences are prejudiced and can be overcome.

This interpretation of sexual orientation is further elaborated by Calum who shares a tale which also claims sexual orientation is not fixed. There is debate about the origins of sexuality , nature v nurture etc. However Gay Rights Activists gained protected status on the basis their sexual orientation was not simply a (lifestyle) choice. 👇

Overall I am left with more than a vague unease that no Lesbians figure in these coming out stories. There also seems to be a worrying lack of confidence to claim an incontrovertible same sex orientation.

Stop Press 

Further to publishing this article I have been informed that the Calum, featured here, is a YouTuber in his own account. Notorious for faking this homophobic attack covered in this article https://attitude.co.uk/article/british-youtube-star-calum-mcswiggan-hospitalised-following-suspected-homophobic-attack/11201/

He was subsequently discovered to have made a false allegation https://www.washingtonblade.com/2016/06/29/police-say-gay-youtuber-faked-hate-crime/

I also had a look at his YouTube account and found some more interesting content https://youtu.be/ur46Kx8V7XA

Calum apologises for associating Men with Penises and Woman with Vaginas. He warns his audience that if you express disgust at vaginas you never know if the Gay Man next to you has a vagina. He further assures his audience that he would include them in his dating pool.

.He also weighed in on the recent, manufactured, controversy after JK Rowling stated some basic facts about biology and same sex attraction.

We need a new Gay Liberation Front. One unashamed to defend same sex orientation. Hence LGB Alliance.
