When the Ideologues Come for the Kids

Oct 21, 2019 by

by Andrew Sullivan, Intelligencer: Like any religion, wokeness understands the need to convert children. The old Jesuit motto (sometimes attributed to Voltaire) was, after all, “Give me the child for the first seven years and I will give you the man.” And so I was moved but not particularly surprised by George Packer’s tale of a progressive school banishing separate restrooms for boys and girls because this reinforces the gender binary.

BBC pushing dangerous gender ideology to children

Sep 10, 2019 by

from Coalition for Marriage: Our national broadcaster is telling children there are “over a hundred, if not more, gender identities now”. This is incredibly dangerous. The nonsensical claim is included in a new BBC Teach video series for 9-12 year olds which is supposed to help teachers “deal with sensitive subjects in an age-appropriate… and honest way”.

Crushed – the primary school pupils who dared to question LGBT agenda

Jul 26, 2019 by

by Will Jones, The Conservative Woman: ‘Can teachers be trusted to teach about sex and relationships?’ asked Joe Baron in the Spectator recently. Not if Heavers Farm Primary School in Croydon is any indication. Last year it gained national media attention when Izzy Montague’s five-year-old son was forced to take part in an LGBT Pride parade. Izzy complained, as did other parents, but they were ‘ignored and silenced’, the Christian Legal Centre reports. Izzy’s son was then ‘bullied by...

Jul 19, 2019 by

by Tim Black, spiked: It is the LGBT education programme that is the real authoritarian force. It started in January at Parkfield Community School in Saltley, Birmingham.

According to Moffat, speaking on the BBC One current-affairs show Panorama, the programme’s purpose is to...
