That Equaliteach Project

Featured

This project came to my attention when they were asked to remove the Government Equality Office (GEO) endorsement from their project report. The first version, below, clearly included the GEO logo.

In fact the GEO  funded this project to work with 27 primary schools.  At a  superficial level  the project  aims  may seem laudable, a resource to tackle bullying in Primary Schools.   However an examination of the materials in this pack reveal the underlying relationship to Queer Theory and the political project of disrupting social norms.  Some social norms, such as homophobia, needed (still need) to be challenged.  Other social norms exist for a reason, for example, to stigmatise the dangerous sexualisation of children. This entire document is a clear example of the political project of Queering the classroom.  You can read and article on this here

My first red flag was a dangerous reliance on Stonewall reports. 561937C3-D0A9-443C-9A4C-F09EB47AB0D6

The rise of hate crime on the basis of homophobia is disturbing. Especially since this is the least covered of the letters by Stonewall.  However Stonewall extrapolates from the data to show an alarming % of hate crime, 53% in the 18-24 age bracket.  However a hate crime is recorded based on the self-perception of the reporting individual and we know some of these are simple “mis-gendering”.  Another puzzling claim is that this project aimed to dismantle gender stereotypes.  This is the most disingenuous of claims since we are teaching children, who don’t perform sex stereotypes “correctly”, that they may be #BornInTheWrongBody.

My next red flag was a reference to this person Dr Ronz. The good doctor describes zimself as a “queer, black, androgynous, intersectional feminist”.  Of course zie does. After making a good point about lack of visibility; which does impact Lesbians, in particular, she then colludes with the literal erasing of female, often Lesbian, bodies.   A young woman describes difficulty walking, struggling to breathe, a hunched back and ribs popping out, all caused by breast binding.  This young woman is manifesting an obvious bodily hatred. Dr Ronz fails to interrogate any underlying, psychological, issues, instead she merely advises her to wear a larger binder!

For further reading you can check out this excellent article on the different attitudes to breast ironing (bad) and Breast binding (progressive) in this article. here.  What next corsets?

At last more organisations have realised they cannot get away with lying about the nine, legally protected characteristics. This is, at least, an accurate list. 👇. Brief sigh of relief but read on….they are still going to do it, just in a bit more of a sneaky way.

373FC3F8-662C-4AB6-B512-284F9AA68030

Later on we see the sleight of hand.   They emphasise that the correct legal terms should be used except its OK to use “gender” instead of Sex & Gender Reassignment.  The very same two protected characteristics now under attack can be replaced with the Stonewall preferred term.  Coincidence?  I think not.

076FFAF9-4F7C-485B-BBEB-A3913CAD02DF

Don’t take us for fools Stonewall. We see exactly what you are doing even if you have successfully hoodwinked the GEO.  This is straight up Stonewall Law. Here’s Stonewall on  The Equality Act.  👇

99FD1B71-653E-440E-A38C-0B327F1C7706

To ram home the point it quotes some of the schools involved who have proceeded to introduce mixed-sex toilets.  No doubt after being introduced to this US Transgender Rights Activist who they quote in the document.  👇 Their  claim to fame is destroying access to single sex toilets/changing rooms in their home state.  There is quite a lot about making sure toilets are “gender neutral” in the pack as teachers fall over themselves to queer the toilet facilities.

 

Policing Language

There follows a long list of terminology for our primary school children, and likely the teachers, to learn. Why do primary age children need to know about “cisnormativity”, “heteronormative“, “pansexual” and “queer” . Kids are taught about “heterosexism” which is defined as a “belief that heterosexuality is normal and the norm”. Again this is straight out of Queer Theory.  A reference to disrupting social norms which exposes the social engineering inherent in “free to be “.   A long list of terminology but it only includes the word for the majority sexual orientation in the description for “heterosexism”. These Trans Ally activists seem to have studied Module 101 of how to provoke a backlash,  to hard won rights for the LGB and even, ironically, the T.

A dissertation on pronouns follows.  Why are we telling primary school children that an incorrect use of pronouns may constitute harassment?18B733A7-5D8B-47F9-9183-A7C80BFF8957

Actually lying about the Law in a project sponsored by the Government!  The Equality Act says no such thing!  Wrong pronouns do not contravene the Equality Act!

These are primary age kids and, just in case we have all forgotten, we don’t use pronouns to anyone’s face!  They are used to refer to people when they are not there!

Welcome to Dystopia. 👇8808212C-7D53-4B10-A0A9-506F35F5C837

Gender Identity Ideology.

Naturally the document is saturated with  teaching about Gender Identity.  The pack quotes research showing that children from age three “can be aware of and talk abut their gender identity”. Children, as young as three, can show awareness of the expectations for their sex and  conform to behaviours based on Gender stereotypes.  This does not mean they have an innate “gender identity”. It just means boys and girls are socialised to conform from a very young age.  Primary school children can indeed be aware of their sexual orientation but it is over-reach to claim that both sexual orientation and Gender Identity are innate.  There is much evidence for the former but not the latter.  This is not education its indoctrination.

E97D932E-DF45-49F7-BAFB-D5A2C7390B0C

This curriculum seems designed to inculcate a bodily dissociative disorder.  The below quote is to remind us of the odious Section 28 legislation, which forbade references to homosexuality. However, Gender identity Ideology is actually the Woke Section 28. We are disproportionately sweeping up our gay youth in the Transgender phenomenon because, guess what, Butch Lesbians and Femme Gay males are a thing.  We used to bully femme boys by them by calling them cissy/girl  and now we are telling them they are literally girls!  So, yes, we are promoting being transgender.

4DEC57E5-E430-40FA-9E79-B2FA4DDE2402

The document also admits that staff, who were worried about reactions from parents, initially, proceeded to teach this ideology in secret.  As more parents became aware of this it generated a backlash. Recognising the days of stealth indoctrination have passed, our woke overlords  resort to lying about the law and emotional blackmail. Teaching about Gender Identity is not mandated by law.  Parents are objecting! And NO it is not a moral and legal duty. 👇

A3605284-7F7C-4841-BBF3-72F5D6F3B78D

The document addresses questions of religious belief in the context of sexual orientation and then proceeds to answer the question encompassing the LGB & the T.  This is a standard tactic.  Many opponents of Transgender Identity Ideology are themselves homosexual.  This is because there is a conflict between   having a SEXual orientation, and demands that you include anyone with the same Gender in your dating pool, regardless of their biology.  Activists know that people are generally shamed by being called homophobic so they exploit this fear to push transgender ideology.

Beware!

Next up is a scurrilous attack on organisations which question the new hegemony of “Born In The Wrong Body”, or raise issues of concerns about the impact on  Women’s Rights.   Worth reproducing this in its entirety.  Note that once again Stonewall are quoted, approvingly, as are  Mermaids.  (The latter is a prominent, UK based, charity, which promotes medicalising “transgender kids” . The BBC has recently removed Mermaids from the list of charities they refer to as sources of advice). This document quotes them as a reputable group.

B63D6392-003E-4F8B-BC2C-C85324E26FBB

The authors are keen to  make sure that parents and schools reject these organisations and do not, on any account, read what they have to say.  They then  detail tactics for making sure the entire school buys into the ideology.   Get the Governors on board, get parents in for friendly coffee mornings…..basically “groom” them.  The document also wrongly tells parents they can’t reject LGBT education.   Not true.  Sex Educations is expected to be mandatory from September 2020. It is not yet. There is no obligation to teach Gender Identity in schools but note that this document makes it clear it is to be embedded across the curriculum.👇

B3647BE5-58E6-410A-8925-5E0BD3E522C9

However if the Government reverse the mandatory sex education the document outlines how to make sure there will be no escape. There are pages and pages of all aspects of the curriculum and how to “Queer” it.  There are examples of Home/School contracts so that parents know what is expected of them and their child.  There are books like this by Jazz Jennings, the poster child for Gender Dysphoria. 👇 The little boy who had his puberty blocked and sadly, at age 16, did not know what an orgasm felt like.  Nice accessible, heart-warming stories. Nothing about puberty blocking causing a penis so small there was not enough material to fashion a neo-vagina and Jazz Jennings multiple, and continuing, corrective surgeries.

Another part of the document includes retrospectively transitioning women, who masqueraded as men to access male professions,  such as Dr James Barry. Or even claiming that Plato supported the LGBT+ which is ahistorical nonsense.

They do manage to dredge up an actual transsexual to offer up as a role model for children.  Robert (a) Cowell was a late transitioning WW2 Fighter pilot, with a less than savoury tale.

Woke Stasi?

There is a reason why this term exists.  Here teachers, it is suggested, observe pupils and keep a diary of their behaviour. Checking for implied homophobia or, heaven forfend, a style of play that assumes heteronormativity!

Parents

I have written about the way parents are treated in these guidance packs. Suffice to say that this one also advocates hiding information from parents.  Affirming children at school and concealing this information from parents, This despite also claiming our children are at a heightened risk of suicide.  Whilst repeating the mantra:  This is not a safeguarding issue?  

I will restrict myself to this one quote.

The forces pushing this ideology have finally come out of the shadows, they have spread their tentacles throughout councils, parliament, police forces, the Judiciary, Universities and our schools.  No longer acting in stealth more and more “normies” are waking up to its more sinister content.

Putting the Loco in Loco Parentis

The Law: In Loco Parentis

Parents  entrust our kids to the School/Teachers to look after their safety and well-being, in our stead. Forcing our girls to share mixed sex spaces, and hiding information from parents is a grave dereliction of that duty.

C54CBFDD-B299-480F-8C28-12CC7D9446397486AFF1-A723-4438-B4FE-136586AA312D

Transgender Guidance in Schools.

More and more parents have begun to raise concerns about School guidance, supposedly, developed to accommodate Transgender pupils. Grass roots organisations, such as Safe Schools Alliance, have emerged to challenge these  policies. In 2020, transgender guidance has been withdrawn in Kent, Cornwall, Shropshire, Barnsley, Warwickshire and Oxfordshire.  There are challenges underway in three further schools, of which I am aware. Thus far all the guidance has been withdrawn rather than face a legal challenge.

The Oxfordshire case is illustrative of a problematic attitude to the protected characteristic of sex.  A 13 year old girl challenged Oxfordshire County Council  via a Judicial Review. Her case aimed to gain recognition of the conflict between the protected characteristics of Sex & Gender Reassignment.  The guidance from the Department of Education argues that the protected characteristic of Gender Reassignment   covers pupils who identify as Transgender. Link to government guidance is here

Here is the relevant excerpt and look who is advising them! GIRES!

9817B132-2299-4E0E-9847-556594A248D8

This is despite the fact under 18’s cannot apply for a Gender Recognition Certificate or, legally, obtain Sexual Reassignment Surgery, in the UK.  The Transgender pupils are therefore anatomically indistinguishable from the rest of their natal sex.

415653BF-24C1-4495-8718-566771427E62

Rather than face a judicial review the council withdrew the policy. They  are clearly hoping to hide behind the skirts/trousers of the EHRC. Oxfordshire issued a statement which contained no apology, to the female pupil. Instead the Council ends with a statement about the safeguarding of its trans-identifying pupils. Nothing about a duty to safeguard, potentially vulnerable,  natal girls.

In this post I want to specifically focus on the way parents are regarded in these transgender toolkits.  Both the parents of children who manifest as Gender Dysphoric and the parents of other pupils.  I estimate I have looked at about twenty of these guidance packs. Below are examples of what they have to say about parents.

Most of the guidance refers to the high rate of  suicidal ideation, in our trans-identifying children. Yet the policies repeatedly state  there is no, inherent, safeguarding risk.  If our children reveal a state of gender confusion , to a member of staff, they are reminded that this is confidential  information, not to be shared, even with the child’s parents.  How can schools claim our children are at a high risk of suicide attempts and, simultaneously, state  there are no safeguarding issues. How is it  Ok to conceal this information from parents?   D7CA96FE-7B71-4AD7-B15E-78711FB533DC39310240-746C-45A5-A26D-17C3ED3F78DA

Suffolk council divides parents into the good and the bad ones.  The good ones “work alongside their child”.  Are the bad ones those who think the best outcome is a reconciliation to biological sex and not a  lifelong dependence on BigPharma?

Barnsley expresses the hope that parents will be concerned for their child’s welfare but is clearly sceptical.  At no point, in any of the policies, is there an understanding that  parents, who express caution, are the ones  acting in the best interests of our children.  Every pack I have examined is suspiciously  keen to emphasise actions the child can take independently of their parents.

More sinister is an open statement that a school, in this case a Catholic school, can put in place a transition plan that does not involve the parents!  This is my old school and I have young relatives who attend there.

Here is another Catholic school which labels parent’s as prejudiced. It then goes on  to make the claim that Parents/Guardians may not be the most appropriate people to guide their child through transitioning!  Why is transitioning our children seen as an unmitigated good? A direct attack on parental duty of care and parental rights from the Catholic Church!.  I am an atheist but it is quite astonishing to see the undermining of Parental responsibility emanating out of Catholic schools.

8C2137E2-0B16-4F7A-8F8C-F136CADA15CFLeicestershire Council appear to see themselves as a Tavistock (Gender Identity Services) referral agent:  Actually stating here that Teachers & School Nurses, even Youth Workers are able to make referrals! 66BC6D03-BD45-465F-BEC5-54B8FE753E88

233B594E-424C-410A-8EA7-310279D9D029Where are the parents in the Leicester guidance? Once again the confidentiality of the child is placed in the foreground.  What this actually means is that the school has the right to keep secrets from the parents. Even whilst so many of these packs claim our children are at a significant risk of suicide attempts. Still it is not a safeguarding issue?

This next clip is even more disturbing.  The Leicester policy sets out a scenario where one of the parents will be actively deceived about what is going on.

F761388E-D52E-49FF-9A06-9D39780AE6E6

Of course we can all think of scenarios where parents are a risk to the safety and well-being of their child.  Why are parents, who question the uptick of girls (and boys) with Gender Dysphoria, labelled as problematic. Having navigated this territory, for my male child, I was keen that he was afforded protection but not at the expense of the female pupils.  Puberty can be a difficult time for teenage girls and they too deserve dignity, privacy and protection. Like the parent below I was able to navigate a careful path between the two protected groups.  Unlike this parent, from the Cornwall guidance, I was not faced with a Social Justice Warrior undermining these careful arrangements.

9F8A8897-F48F-4E43-B6ED-259E65F964D2The Cornwall policy was jointly drafted with a female police officer. I was surprised the statement on the left made it into the document.  Apart from a disturbing focus on links to reporting #HateCrime it was not the worst Transgender policy I read. It is, however, a, regrettably, low bar. The document also brands parents as potentially prejudiced and again argues that the child may have a perfect legal right to exclude parents from any role in preserving their healthy bodies. 1EF8DEAB-396C-4E6F-AC3F-75269D776959

You can read about the Fraser Guidelines, and Gillick Competence, mentioned above  here.   Activists  argue that transitioning children /teens against their parent’s wishes is in line with the rights of young people.  You will start to see more references to these guidelines and Gillick competence. This is intentional and designed to draw a false equivalence to access to contraception.  References will also be clothed in Human Rights speak and references to bodily autonomy. 

7BB1BE2E-9B6D-47BD-8698-646083CAB591 A lot of these guidance packs go to some lengths to make sure schools know they can honour a pupil’s preferred name and pronoun. School systems can be amended to reflect this. There is no need for a legal name change.  They also point out that, once a pupil reaches 16 they no longer need parental permission.

Shropshire also favours hiding this information from parents who are not “supportive”. I know, first hand, of parents who only discovered what was going on, with their own child, when a letter was  sent home with a new name & pronouns.  Do not tell parents can be a very dangerous message.  Some parents have children with eating disorders, psychiatric co-morbidities, and other conditions which the school may be unaware about.

CE78FE75-2E77-40EF-A11E-E7D76FF964FD

The pack which seems to be the template for most of the packs I have seen remains in operation. This is the All Sorts pack, from Brighton and Hove.  A pupil’s right to confidentiality is elevated above parental obligations, or the rights of other pupils.  Again,  because they claim it is not a safeguarding issue it can be kept from their own parents and the parents of other children.05FCA681-B055-4296-A81F-A80DB1E8C7F3

Where a parent raises a concern, about a male-bodied person in girls changing rooms, the pupil/parent’s are admonished for denying the “girlhood” of the other pupil.  In this scenario, I as a parent of a trans-identifying male, agree with the female pupil and her parent’s concerns.  I would not want my son to be exposed to the hostility, that would likely ensue, from such a stance. At the same time, if the guidance is followed, I would be totally unaware my child had formally claimed trans-status at the school. Who does this protect?  Not my son. Not the girls in his school.

2B9A333D-6B78-4879-B363-78F3F584845C

Another common feature of the Transgender Guidance is the near ubiquity of signposting to  Mermaids Charity.  This charity is a keen advocate for keeping secrets from parents.  Here is an article on their website. It  was  modified so  children could quickly exit the site and avoid their parents discovering they are seeking counsel on  Gender Identity Issues.

3596FA32-0B32-4C50-8949-CA90825E9F26

The BBC has now amended their guidance to remove signposting to Mermaids and other trans lobby groups.  I wonder how long it will take for all School guidance packs to do the same?

My Next blog will explore  this document?  Based on a project funded by the Government Equalities Office,

Here is what they have to say about parents.  This is a lie.  The Equality Act does not mandate pronouns.
