Heather McLean lives in Dundee, and is a teacher with forty four years experience.
The article is in response to the Scottish Government’s Transgender Guidance for Scottish Schools.
Parents are not going along with this ideology, they are deliberately being kept in the dark by the schools under instruction and pressure from complicit Local Authorities. There have been many instances of parents questioning the Relationships and Sexual Health materials being taught but being deliberately given the run around or made to feel they have no right to question the school.
I believe we are witnessing the systematic dismantling of the boundaries which constitute a respectable decent society which respects and values women and all it’s citizens. Not content with trying to redefine the meaning of the word “woman” the Scottish government are now turning their attention to our children.
According to government guidelines children as young as four will be allowed to change their name and gender at school without the parents consent and knowledge. Please don’t imagine that every teacher is in agreement with these guidelines and government propaganda, but many young teachers are already down the “be kind” indoctrination Road having come through the universities where this ideology is fostered. Many young teachers are under pressure to conform in order to secure full time permanent employment and many older teachers feel pressurised and even bullied into complicity.
As a teacher I am particularly disturbed at what every early years practitioner recognises as role play now being perverted into the gender debate.
Young children explore and make sense of the world around them through play, using the power of their imagination, which all good education practitioners seek to nurture, children can be Superheroes, robots,, fairies, elves, witches, wizards, doctors, nurses, even unicorns or Mutant hero Turtles. But nobody seriously should expect anyone to affirm those identities and graft a horn on a forehead or a turtle shell or a set of wings onto their back.
So when a four year old child says “today I am a boy” or “today I am a girl”, the very last thing an educational professional should be doing is affirming that and setting a child on a path which is damaging psychologically and physically with a future dependent on surgery and prescription medications and hormones.
And worse still keeping this information from the parents.
