I disagree that 11 yr old children should be taught about transgender issues in school.

Please cease, or dramatically amend the ‘Safe Schools’ public school program immediately.

I disagree that boys should be able to wander into the girl’s bathroom – and vice versa.

I disagree that asking parents if their baby is a boy or a girl reinforces a “heteronormative world view’’.

I disagree that girls should be taught about breast binding. I disagree that boys should be taught about genital tucking.

I disagree that children should be asked to ‘pretend’ they are sexually attracted to a member of the same sex.

I disagree that children should have to answer 10 questions, including whether they could “easily talk to your parents about your sexuality”, and to name four famous Australians of the same sexuality.

I disagree that the teacher should then instruct the children to stand, and slowly count backwards from 10.

I disagree that each child should sit down when the number called out by the teacher corresponds with the number of times they answered “yes’’ in the quiz. This means that a student who answers “no’’ could be left standing in front of the class.

I disagree that children need to be shown short films about the personal stories of young lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people. 486 Schools in Australia are running this program.

In 2018 it will be mandatory in all Victorian Schools. As yet it is voluntary in other states and territories.

Please cease, or dramatically amend the ‘Safe Schools’ public school program immediately.
