Tasmania is about to establish compelled speech.
The Legislative Council is debating a Bill this week that will impose a new mandatory speech code to be implemented in this state. The code is contained in Clause 9 of the Justice and Related Legislation (Marriage Amendments) Bill 2018.
Ask your MP to not support this agenda!
The Bill, if passed, will authorise the Anti-Discrimination Tribunal to impose fines on people who offend a transgender person by failing to use a name or pronoun.
This would set a dangerous precedent. A teacher who innocently refers to their class as ‘boys and girls’ or a person beginning a speech with ‘ladies and gentlemen’ could be sued in the Tribunal if a trans person took offence.
Don't let Labor and the Greens continue to push a radical gender agenda.
Never before in Australia has any Parliament sought to control speech to such a level.
The Bill provides that any person can change their sex simply by identifying a new gender. There is absolutely no requirement for any reassignment surgery or medical treatment.
To be clear, there are no physical indications of gender expression.
When a state decides to regulate the speech of its citizens in case someone might be offended, this is a very precarious position.
