Jordan Peterson issues stark warning on gender policy ahead of Victorian election

Clinical Psychologist and best-selling author Jordan Peterson has issued a stark warning about Premier Daniel Andrews’ dangerous gender policy ahead of the Victorian state election.

In Australia on a speaking tour, the Canadian Psychologist took to Twitter to warn all Australians to “beware” of a Victorian government policy that means schools can transition children without parental consent.

“Beware these words, Australians “it will be necessary for the school to consider whether the student is a mature minor”.  

The warning came as Professor Peterson shared a tweet from Binary Spokeswoman Kirralie Smith highlighting the alarming policy (available on the Victorian government’s own website here). It allows schools to facilitate a student’s “gender transition without the consent of their parent/s (or carer/s), and/or without consulting medical practitioners.”

“You know [Daniel Andrews] gender transition policy should shock every Victorian parent,” tweeted Kirralie.

“Schools can start your child’s ‘gender transition’ (new name, uniform, pronouns) WITHOUT your knowledge/ consent.” 

Smith and Binary have been raising awareness of the problematic and unpopular policy ahead of the election.

Peterson’s warning comes less than 24 hours before Victorians take to the polls to decide the state’s future and Dan Andrew’s fate.

The distressing and widely disliked policy is sure to be a key element of the election on Saturday, November 26.
