Federal Government still promoting gender fluid ideology & transition and in some cases even without parental consent on student website

Given the Federal Government’s ‘Safe Schools’ review last year and recent announcements by the Tasmanian and NSW Government’s to not fund ‘Safe Schools’ because of its promotion of gender fluidity, ( i.e., your biological sex does not necessarily match your gender identity which is changeable), one would have hoped that official resources promoting gender fluidity and encouraging students to transition gender would have been removed from the Federal Government’s Student Wellbeing Hub.

However, a current search of the Federal website reveals this is not so.

The ‘Guide to supporting a student to affirm or transition gender identity at school’ states,

“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. It may be possible to consider a student a mature minor and able to make decisions without parental consent.”

Who decides if a student is a “mature minor”? Normally courts would determine this and the Guide enables the school to lock parents out of even knowing that their child is transitioning to another gender.

Another ‘safe’ schools official resource on the Federal Government website, “All of Us” has stories of apparently LGBTI people and says, “Margot explains that being transgender is about how you feel inside and how you see yourself. She speaks about what it’s like to grow up being told you’re a boy when you know you’re a girl…”

It tells of another, Nevo, saying, “ He tells a powerful story about growing up with the knowledge that the female sex assigned to him at birth did not match who he knew he truly was….”

The numbers of children presenting with gender dysphoria to the Royal Childrens Hospital in Melbourne has risen from 40 cases in 2013 to an estimated 250 in 2016, with ‘Safe Schools’ introduced in 2014. This is quite disturbing. In the May edition of Quadrant, eminent Australian paediatrician Dr. John Whitehall,* Professor of Paediatrics at the University of Western Sydney, says “Blockers and cross sex hormones cause structural alterations in the brain. No one knows the long term effects. Their use in childhood dysphoria is utterly experimental. There is no reliable evidence of long term benefits to recipient children. Most will grow out of it by puberty. So, why medicalise the confusion?”

Why has the Federal Coalition Government persisted with including these dangerous resources on the government’s Student Wellbeing Hub while state coalition governments are scrapping ‘safe schools’ because they can see the harm they are causing children.

ACTION:

Please Email your coalition MP’s and Senators here, asking them to remove all gender fluid ideology including the ‘Guide to supporting a student to affirm or transition gender identity at school’ and ‘All of Us’ resources from the government’s Student Wellbeing Hub website.

Here are some draft letters you can use (and adapt in your own words)#:

Draft letter 1:

Why is the Federal Government promoting gender fluid ideology and encouraging students to transition gender via the ‘Guide to supporting a student to affirm or transition gender identity at school’ and  ‘All of Us’ resources from the government’s Student Wellbeing Hub website?

Parents are being undermined by the ‘Guide’ which states that “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 …..” and “ It may be possible to consider a student a mature minor and able to make decisions without parental consent.”

This is handing over authority to school representatives to determine the health and wellbeing of children even without their parent’s knowing about the psychological/health issues of their children or the medical interventions that may result.

Please do as your Tasmanian and N.S.W. counterparts have done and scrap the Safe Schools resources from the government’s Student Wellbeing Hub.

Draft letter 2:

Since the introduction of ‘Safe Schools’ in 2014, the numbers of children presenting with gender dysphoria to the Royal Childrens Hospital in Melbourne has risen from 40 cases in 2013 to an estimated 250 in 2016. Experts warn the use of puberty blockers and cross sex hormones cause structural alterations in the brain and their use in childhood gender dysphoria is utterly experimental and can lead to irreversible consequences.

The Federal Government needs to urgently remove the dangerous and confusing ‘Guide to supporting a student to affirm or transition gender identity at school’ and  ‘All of Us’ resources from the government’s Student Wellbeing Hub website. Studies show most children with gender dysphoria will naturally grow out of it by adulthood. To indoctrinate young minds with transgender ideology is a form of child abuse that must stop.

Yours sincerely, ………………
