Bullying, the new “Trojan horse”?

To “stop bullying”, we’ll let anything in….

From The Sun.co.uk: “Leigh North Street Primary School in Southend, Essex, has signed up to a Stonewall scheme designed to help it tackle issues such as homophobic and transgender bullying. But an anonymous letter supposedly from a parent was sent to locals branding it “indoctrination”. The letter raged: “Staff have already been instructed to no longer use the words ‘boy’ and ‘girl’ to describe our children. “This removes every child at the school’s gender and causes confusion in children who otherwise would be perfectly happy. “Where will it lead? Mixed-sex toilets? Mixed changing areas—which is indecent?” But head teacher Ant Hautler said the letter has sparked fury among parents who back the school’s new scheme. Me: the “bullying” link leads to the following article in the same online journal, which is not about bullying; it is cheerleading for “gender-neutral” parenting. Also notice the snide tone the article takes, with its use of “supposedly” and “raged”, and the quote from Ant, “sparked fury”. The Sun appears to be advocating for this scheme, using “bullying” as a Trojan Horse to take the focus off the idiocy of the trans ideology.

An increasing number of parents and experts say we should adopt a “gender-neutral” approach to raising children. Gender-neutral parenting is about breaking away from the gender binary and exposing children to a variety of gender types and allowing them to explore. There are different levels of gender-neutral parenting. Parents who practice a relaxed form of gender-neutral parenting encourage their children to play with both “boy” and “girl” toys, keep clothing and room colour neutral or allowing children to pick their own clothes – even if that means their son goes to school dressed in pink. Gender neutrality is encouraged within the classroom to address pupils questioning their gender identity. Highgate School, a top private school in North London, introduced gender-neutral uniforms including skirts for boys following a surge in transgender students. According to the Sunday Times, over 2,000 under-18s were referred to the Gender Identity Clinic at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trusts in north London last year. Other attempts to encourage gender neutrality in schools have involved not separating toys in gender-specific areas, not having gender-specific sports in PE lessons, having gender-neutral bathrooms, and a ban on certain phrases such as “ladies and gentlemen”, “boys will be boys” and “girls will be girls”. Me: Speaking of neutrality, there is none for those who oppose trans ideology. Like in communist countries, dissent of a toxic, stupid idea cannot and will not be tolerated. Don’t think that neutrality is allowed. Those 2,000+ students are victims of this damaging ideology. They are “under 18”. I wonder how many of them are under 12.

From the UK Sun Times (not The Sun): An internationally renowned researcher on tax avoidance is believed to be the first person in Britain to lose her job for saying that transgender women are not women. Maya Forstater, 45, was told by her managers that she had used “offensive and exclusionary” language. She was accused of “fear-mongering” for tweeting her concerns about government proposals to allow people to legally self-identify as the opposite sex. Forstater has begun employment tribunal proceedings against her former employer, the London office of the Centre for Global Development Think Tank. Some “think tank”. A psychologist has something important to say about such thinking.

Then there’s psychologist Dr. Alicia Hendley. She writes: Now, when I reflect on my “switch” from being an unrelenting trans activist/“ally” to being critical of gender identity ideology and legislation, I’m chilled at how easy it was for me—a psychologist (now retired), ostensibly trained to understand the human mind—to become so caught up in the momentum of “trans rights” that I avoided critical thought, much like a new member of a cult. And, while I’m reluctant to call trans activism a “cult,” I’m aware of many disconcerting similarities: the absolute refusal to allow anyone to criticize issues; silencing, smearing, and ostracizing those who do ask questions (in this case, labeling them “transphobic”) about the ideology of transgenderism; and pressuring individuals (from parents to health professionals) to blindly adhere to the view that some people are “born in the wrong body,” and that the only way to “fix” this error is through medical intervention, such as puberty-suppressing drugs, cross-sex hormones, and various surgeries, rather than with psychological intervention. And, much like in a cult, those who push gender identity ideology discourage independent thought, and instead respond to requests for evidence and facts to support their beliefs with platitudes, mantras, and scare tactics, repeated over and over, until they become reality. If I could become so easily and wholeheartedly sold on notions like the existence of a “lady brain,” I fear that almost anyone is susceptible to believing that this increasingly large emperor, his brazen nakedness filling the room, is in fact wearing clothes.

Even though homosexual men average higher incomes and more job status and security than heterosexual men, they still claim victimhood via the “bullying” Trojan Horse. Everyone hates bullying, so it’s an effective ploy, used with gleeful abandon ESPECIALLY BY TRANS IDEOLOGUES. But like the Greek soldiers hidden inside the original Trojan Horse, who are waiting to kill once inside the walls of Troy–your school, your home, your workplace—death to neutrality bides it’s time inside the Trojan Horse of trans bullying claims.

From PJ Meda.com: According to KPTV-TV, an Oregon elementary school teacher tried to convince an 8-year-old student that he was transgender. The schoolteacher did this without involving the parents. The boy is now aggressive, depressed, and confused. The teacher at Nellie Muir Elementary School in Woodburn targeted the boy for transgender indoctrination when he started using the staff restroom after a stomach issue made him feel uncomfortable about using the boys’ toilet. The teacher took the 8-year-old aside, and proceeded to share all kinds of transgender literature and videos with him. The teacher asked the boy several times whether he thought he was a girl and even held him out of recess in order to read transgender books and watch transgender videos. Oh, and to top it off, there were one-on-one conversations about transgenderism. All this was done without the parents’ consent or even their knowledge. It only came out when the boy came home with a book about transgenderism and when he talked to a therapist (while crying his eyes out). THERE YOU HAVE IT FOLKS. IF HE WASN’T BULLIED BEFORE, I HOPE HE WON’T BE NOW.

When I began this blog, I was a 70 year old man, with a young mind and a body trying to recover from a stroke, and my purpose for this whole blog thing is to provoke thinking, to ridicule reflex reaction, and provide a legacy to my children.

  1. On the Nellie Muir Elementary story….
    Like we didn’t know this was predictable?
    The world is packed with high-and-mighty, pathological “caretakers” frantic to validate their precious goodness by seizing on the nearest “case” they can fabricate–generally the weak, helpless and impressionable. How can children be safe in an environment like that?
    And a prominent British talking-head-lady recently slammed homeschooling because it deprives children of the benefit of getting taught by “experts.”
    God save us from the experts….
    Lots of great and wonderful people out there in our schools. No blanket slam intended. I suspect indeed they are the first to recognize the burgeoning menace and…they are struggling terribly. I have only empathy for them.

    1. You will love my next post, “The Rant I Love.” It’s from a hilariously on point book called “The New Church Ladies.” Last year a normally intelligent friend of mine disputed with me about transgender ideology. I said it was a poison that would seep into every place the vulnerable were, and she said “it’s just a harmless way of people expressing themselves.” I wonder what she thinks now.
