There are a handful of political parties willing to go on record protecting our kids this election.
The Liberal Party is primarily focused on issues such as the economy, healthcare, Defence, farming and small business – they have very little to say about social issues and appear to reject identity politics.
However, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has made it clear he opposes radical gender ideology. Last September he tweeted, “We do not need ‘gender whisperers’ in our schools. Let kids be kids.”
He also called Tasmania’s decision to remove gender from birth certificates “ridiculous.”
Australian Conservatives leader Senator Cory Bernardi has labelled Safe Schools “a dangerous social experiment” and spoken publicly about his opposition to public funding for transgender treatments in the ADF.
Bernardi often weighs in on the imposition of radical gender ideology in public spaces, labelling some government-funded projects as “peak stupid.”
Pauline Hanson’s One Nation party is very clear on where they stand:
“The (un)-Safe Schools program is legalised grooming. It must come to an end. The controversial program targets young children and turns them into sexualised beings, play-things by adults.”
One Nation MLC Mark Latham emphasised his opposition to radical gender ideology in his maiden speech just this week.
When contacted for comment, a representative of Derryn Hinche’s Justice Party said they were too busy campaigning to answer questions regarding gender policies.
Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party said the same.
Kirralie Smith, Binary spokeswoman, encouraged voters to take this issue seriously.
“It is so important to know what policies you are voting for. The safety and security of our kids, and women is at stake when it comes to radical gender ideology.”
