Prime Minister Scott Morrison says there is no need for “gender whisperers” in schools with teachers now being taught to spot potential transgender students in the classroom – a move the Conservative Party strongly opposes along with the now discredited “safe schools” program.
‘Experts’ are claiming the move has contributed to a 236 per cent surge in the number of kids wanting to change sex in the past three years.
The training has been conducted by gender identity ‘experts’ in public and private primary and secondary schools under the guise of professional standards development.
It involves teachers learning to identify key phrases such as “I feel different”, “I’m androgynous” and “I’m born with two spirits” indicating transgender leanings in students as young as five.
Mr Morrison tweeted this morning that schools should “let kids be kids”.
Exclusive figures obtained by The Daily Telegraph show already this year hospitals have referred 74 kids aged 6-16 to gender dysphoria clinics geared to help children and adolescents transition.
In 2015, the number was 22 and in 2013 there were just two.
The figures have sparked a heated debate among health experts, with the huge increase denounced as a “tragic” and “dangerous” fad” fuelled by gender support ‘experts’ in schools and celebrity trans cases.
Given the track record of the Safe Schools program on running roughshod over parents’ rights to be informed about what their children are being taught, it is questionable whether parents will ever be consulted on the ‘gender whispering’ at school.
Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi has told The Daily Telegraph’s Miranda Devine Live the creeping left-wing politically correct hatred of anyone who questions this sort of behaviour in our schools is appalling.
