Imagination is not reality

Parental rights are being threatened in Scotland by the extremist trans agenda.

Children as young as four will be able to change their name and gender at school without their parents’ consent under new LGBT inclusivity guidelines drawn up by the Scottish Government.

A 70-page document, issued to schools north of the border on Thursday, calls on teachers not to question pupils if they say that they want to transition to live as a boy or a girl and to instead ask them for their new name and pronouns.

The controversial guidance claims that it is possible to “come out” as transgender “at any age” and that the views of young people should be respected if they do not want their parents to be informed.

Scotland’s schools have also been told that trans pupils should be able to use whatever lavatory or changing room they choose, to develop “gender neutral” uniform options, and to include transgender characters and role models in reading material and lessons.

Marion Calder, co-director of the For Women Scotland campaign group, said:

It shows a failure in safeguarding and a removal of parental rights. It used to be commonly understood that children should be able to play and experiment with gender roles, with clothing, their likes and dislikes.

Those children are now being encouraged on to a medical pathway, potentially for the rest of their lives. We should not be teaching children, and especially primary school children, that you can change sex, because you cannot change sex.

Binary spokeswoman, Kirralie Smith, agreed.

“Children should be encouraged in imaginative play,” she said.

“Whether it be as unicorns, puppy dogs, astronauts or something else, at the end of the day, it is imagination. It is as possible to change sex as it is to become a unicorn.

“Propelling children down a pathway of irreversible medical interventions to fulfil a fantasy, apart from parental consent, is dangerous and abusive. Let’s call it what it is and let kids be kids.”
