Can we please let kids be kids… for once?

Just when I thought Daniel Andrew’s socialist government’s mind-boggling insanity in Victoria couldn’t get any worse, we’re now hearing reports that minor-aged students are being allowed to switch genders with absolute disregard for parental consent.

This nefarious ideology which is part of the widespread offensive on children and any concept of morality is being pushed in almost 300 schools around Victoria which have signed up to the ‘Safe Schools’ Coalition program which means that your child may be affected. Even more worrying is that over 95 of these are primary schools educating the country’s youngest school-goers – children as young as six.

Tell you what, when I was six years old, I wasn’t worrying about gender ideology. I knew I was born a boy and I was comfortable with being the way God created me to be. I was comfortable with playing with Tonka trucks or pretending to be a fireman. At that age concepts such as sexuality weren’t even crossing my mind – not even remotely. No, I was learning the alphabet, reading, writing and counting. I was being a child.

So what’s going on with today’s generation of little tykes? It’s quite simple really. These youngsters are the direct targets of a highly militant war against that which is biologically and morally correct. Instead of being taught to embrace and celebrate the diversity of the two genders (yes, only two) – equal in human worth yet intrinsically unique in function – they’re being taught that most uniquely masculine qualities are deeply damaging. In fact, to even aspire to be a manly bloke is nigh unto a thought crime these days (you know, “toxic masculinity” and “entitlement”). And if little Johnny doesn’t want to be a girl, then he can be a dinosaur, or a cat or a tiger or no gender at all if he so pleases. And according to the public education system’s twisted way of thinking, then that’s also perfectly ok. Yes ladies and gents, this is reality.

The document produced by the Victorian government (entitled “Guide to supporting a student to affirm or transition gender identity at school”) describes gender as basically being a social construct that one can choose to identify as regardless whether it defies all the laws of reason and science. In other words if I self-identify as a girl even though I was born with male genitals and everything that pertains to masculinity, then I must be accepted without question even though basic 8th grade biology textbooks tells me otherwise. And if you dare question why I choose to identify that way, then you deserve to be roasted mercilessly. Crazy, isn’t it? But that’s the delusional nature of this insane world we live in right now.

“Gender identity is broadly defined in the Sex Discrimination Amendment (Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Intersex Status) Act 2013 as meaning ‘the gender-related identity, appearance or mannerisms or other gender-related characteristics of a person (whether by way of medical intervention or not), with or without regard to the person’s designated sex at birth’,” says the program guide.

So really what this guide is saying is that regardless of what science and reality says I can basically choose to identify as anything as I so please. Of course, this sends us roller coasting down the slippery slope toward other types of madness including transspecism (which I briefly alluded to before). For example, we have this 20-year-old woman in Norway who says she was “born in the wrong species,” going around dressed as a cat and publicly identifying as a cat (yes, seriously). And what’s more back in March, this “genderless alien” in the U.S. announced that he wants to adopt children. I seriously wish I was joking, but this is no joke! These people have to be so far removed from reality and so disregarding of real science to be this twisted.

This mad ‘guide’ continues: “This law protects people from discrimination in regards to their gender identity. It does not matter what sex the person was assigned at birth, or whether the person has undergone any medical intervention. This includes people who identify as women, men or as neither male nor female. The terms people use to describe their gender identity may include transgender, gender non-binary or agender.”

And get a load of the official disregard and disrespect of the children’s parents: “The person who understands most about their gender transition or affirmation is the student themselves. It is crucial to the success of this process that they are included in every decision made and every action taken. Consideration should be given to the age and maturity of the student and whether it would be appropriate to involve the students’ parent(s) or guardian(s) in each decision.”

Involving the parents in such a life-changing and psychologically damaging process as this should be a no-brainer! But no, the Andrews government couldn’t care less about the pain, brokenness, heartache, confusion and mental issues inflicted upon youngsters by such a dangerous notion as this!

As rightly noted by Heat Street, the Socialist state of Victoria has been entrenched in gender politics for several years now further cementing proof that their agenda is driven by ideology and has nothing at all to do with science. For example, there’s already been a “state-funded booklet, ‘OMG I’m Trans’, handed out to schoolchildren to encourage them to have transition surgery.” The literature offered information on hormone therapies and even gender transition surgeries without in so much as a mention of the physical, emotional and psychological harms of doing so.

The guide also explains which areas of a transitioning student’s life should be affected within the school; school records, uniforms, bathrooms, pronouns, sports teams and out-of-school events are all listed as areas for schools to meddle in.

Most concerning is the changes to school bathrooms that will be rolled in to accommodate people pretending to be the opposite gender.

“As part of the written plan, confirm the toilets, changing rooms, showers, and swimming facilities based on the student’s gender identity and the facilities they will feel most comfortable using,” the guide says.

In other words, if a boy who wishes to be a peeping tom can dress up as a girl and use the girls’ bathrooms and showers simply because he pretends to be one. This is truly concerning.

How long will Victorians put up with this continual madness and disregard of everything that is biologically and morally correct? How long will we allow this nation’s children to be subjected to the indoctrination of regressive ideologies that are detrimental to both their physical and emotional health and consequentially devastating to their futures and ultimately our society as a whole?
