Let boys be boys and girls be girls

Many parents are deeply concerned about the $8 million Safe Schools Coalition program now being rolled out nationally.

Under the Safe Schools Coalition Australia, schools would be encouraged to stop dividing students into boys’ and girls’ groups in order to help gender-diverse students.  Transgender and intersex students will be able to use either boys’ or girls’ toilets and change rooms under a national anti-discrimination strategy.

The voluntary initiative, already running in 132 Victorian schools, will also see schools establish diversity groups and review library materials.  Posters about same-sex relationships, transgenderism, bisexuality and intersexuality will also be displayed.

What this teaches kids is that there are no gender norms.

Please stop funding for the Safe Schools program. We feel greatly concerned that this could lead to more identity confusion and anxiety. Our kids need safety, support and guidance, not blanket affirmation and approval. They need help, not misleading information.

Promoting gender-blurring confuses kids. 

The Safe Schools program is not safe and we would really like to see it replaced with guidance for students to develop into healthy men and women.
