"The chair of the ATL’s equality and diversity committee has put forward the motion challenging `gender identity prejudice` in education."
"History teacher Julia Neal told the Evening Standard that teachers need training on how to provide `non-gender-specific facilities`."
" `It’s about senior management teams and governing bodies understanding that there are a lot of facilities in schools that are separated — changing rooms and toilets and uniforms are very gender-specific,` she said."
" `If there is gender fluidity they need to understand the importance of gender-neutral facilities.` "
They need to understand ?
I think the point is that `gender fluidity` is not the norm and that is why schools have not provided non-gender-specific facilities. Most of us have grown up never having had experience of `gender fluidity` either within ourselves or the people round about us.
In fact, the human species survives because most of the population had no problem identifying with their sex. Biological sexual characteristics are being confused with gender, a role. Biological sexual characteristics are being confused with questions like: am I a boy/girl, man/woman; which would I prefer to be? It`s being confused with sexual preferences. Which sex do I fancy? It`s being confused, deliberately so.
It looks like there is an agenda to push `gender fluidity` on to children and you have to ask why?
Well, here comes the childless lady to ask who will, no doubt, sort out the confusion:
Or maybe not.
"Nicola Sturgeon has pledged to radically reform gender recognition law for trans people, including those of non-binary gender, if the SNP is re-elected in May. Sturgeon`s vow to reform the devolved legislation to `bring it in line with international best practice` will allow transgender individuals to change their birth certificate and other official documents to recognise their gender status without having to appear before a tribunal of psychiatrists.. ."
No need for psychiatrists eh ? It`s a pity that does not apply in Family Law.
"Nonbinary gender is an umbrella term covering any gender identity that doesn`t fit within the gender binary. The label may also be used by individuals wishing to identify as falling outside of the gender binary without being any more specific about the nature of their gender. Though there are many kinds of nonbinary identities, some people identify as `nonbinary` only." [Well I`m glad that was explained.]
Now if I was a conspiracy theorist I would question why this announcement has come out in the same week.
"Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale has told how she is thankful for the messages of support she has received since coming out as gay."But maybe best just to concentrate on school toilets !
