Am I imagining it or are we for some strange reason suddenly suffering a deluge of stories using the word “transphobia”? If I’m right, I have to wonder what could be behind it, for it would seem there was some kind of organised push to bring the concept into the public arena. By whom? I guess the same old cultural Marxists/ Fabian socialists as usual.
The news seems to be teeming with transgender stories. Cate McGregor in Australia. There’s Bradley/ Chelsea Manning. Bruce Jenner is another currently making headlines, and I don’t know one person who really gives a damn. But they keep pushing it.
The latest story I have come across is absolutely bizarre. In the UK school system, children as young as three are being asked to sign a contract pledging not to use “transphobic” language at school. The UK Daily Mail reports–
The pledge is contained in a ‘home-school agreement’ which all children must sign before they start at Turnham Primary School in September.
The infants must also promise to refrain from using homophobic and racist phrases and to be tolerant of people with different sexual orientations and lifestyles. Each child must print their name and provide a signature to confirm that they understand their ‘responsibilities’ while attending the school.
It is understood that teachers at the South-East London school introduced the document to help stamp out playground prejudice against transgender people and a wide range of disabilities and cultures.
Turnham Primary is a foundation school, which means it is funded by the Government through Labour-run Lewisham Council, which yesterday refused to comment on the matter. The school, led by executive head teacher Selina Sharpe, also declined to comment.Later, after parent outcry, a spokesman for the school’s governing board apologised saying ‘On behalf of the governing body I would like to sincerely apologise for any offence or distress caused to our parents and pupils. Until I have held a full inquiry into the matter, I am not in a position to make any further comment.’
