$96k "gender-sensitive" emergency guide

February 12, 2019

Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi has labelled as "peak stupid" a $96,000 message from a federal government-funded guide telling emergency service agencies to promote a “gender-sensitive approach” to the planning for and ­delivery of disaster relief and recovery.

The Daily Telegraph reports, it was developed by Victoria-based organisation Women’s Health Goulburn North East with funding provided by the federal ­Attorney-General’s office.

In the event of a natural disaster, such as catastrophic bushfires or deadly floods, the guide says it is vital emergency evacuation shelters are equipped with transgender bathrooms, while household emergency plans should be updated through a “gender lens”.

The guide says, “These guidelines are ­designed to address the needs of women, men, and everyone of diverse gender and sexual identities, including LGBTI people, and to minimise the negative impact of gender stereotypes on all members of the community.”

Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi has told Ben Fordham on Sydney radio station 2GB the idea is simply crazy.
