All Qld school kids to be taught they were not born male or female

The Australian Christian Lobby has raised the alarm that all Queensland state school children will now be taught the belief that “people are born either male or female, and that’s how they should stay” is a ‘myth’.

Child Safety Minister, Di Farmer told Parliament: “I am pleased to say that this framework includes several significant new actions that we will start working on right away. They include making respectful relationships education compulsory in all state schools via implementation of the Australian curriculum.”

The Respectful Relationships program contains helpful material in its primary target areas on domestic and sexual violence but is brought undone by promoting radical gender fluid ideology that families will find confusing – if not very dangerous – for their children. 

An associated on-line quiz asks – “People are born as either male or female, and that’s how they should stay.” Children are forced to choose between answers ‘Myth’ or ‘Fact’. The ‘Fact’ answer result in the child being corrected:– “Hmm, it looks like you might need to think a bit more about how we can be respectful of diversity in our society.” Whereas the ‘Myth’ answer praises the child: “Great job! You really understand the principles of diversity, and how to respect diversity.”

“This compulsory Respectful Relationships course tells boys and girls that viewing their schoolmates as a boy or girl is not ‘respectful’,” ACL Queensland director Wendy Francis said, “Radical gender-fluid indoctrination of Australian children has surely reached a new low – kids believing they are born (and should stay) male or female does not mean there is something wrong with them,” Mrs Francis said.

“The ACL calls for the removal of the ‘respectful relationships’ component of this program.”
