Now Gavin Williamson must follow Liz Truss’s lead

LAST week we pointed readers to a document called ‘Free to Be’. Produced by a group called EqualiTeach, it is designed for use in our primary schools with the intention of challenging something the transgender lobby calls ‘cisnormativity’.

This is their notion that our acceptance of our bodies and biological sex is a mere social construct, not a physical reality. It tells young children that they have an ‘inner gender identity’ which may or may not align with their biological sex.

It advises teachers that there is no need for them to tell the parents should their child come out as a different ‘gender’ at school. Finally, it overtly and pointedly slurs groups which have been set up to protect the rights of women and girls.  

‘Free to Be’, which EqualiTeach states has been produced as a ‘part of a year-long project funded by the Government Equalities Office’ has, since our exposure, been widely condemned on Twitter.

Once she became aware of it, Women and Equalities Minister Liz Truss rapidly disowned it, categorically announcing that: ‘This document was not approved by government. It does not reflect government policy. The GEO logo should not be on it and I have asked for it to be removed.’

Such a robust response from Truss was reassuring. However, the problem is that what EqualiTeach said is correct. The document was funded by the GEO. Back in February 2019, the GEO announced that it was paying EqualiTeach to ‘extend work that protects children from homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying’.
