The rainbow political movement’s war on biological gender gets weirder and more serious by the day.
It is global and it is having consequences here in Australia through the same-sex marriage and “safe schools” debates.
The latest is a dictum issued at Harvard University, the elite Ivy League University in the United States.
Harvard’s office of BGLTQ (Bi-sexual, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender, Queer) Student Life has told students that “Transphobic misinformation is a form of systematic violence.”
“Transphobic misinformation” means questioning the idea that clueless doctors assigned children’s gender at birth, before they had a chance to discover their real gender.
That’s right folks, genitalia are irrelevant to whether or not you are a boy or a girl in this brave new world coming to a “safe school” or elite university near you.
And what’s more, Harvard declared that gender can change from day to day. Like the weather, I guess.
How did an institution, “founded in anticipation of the need for training clergy for the new commonwealth”, end up like this?
It has to be one of the most spectacular examples of mission drift ever.
But what is particularly worrying is the decree that not to be on board with gender theory, and to say this out loud, is to perpetuate “systematic violence”.
I kid you not.
Those of us who wish to advocate for boys to be boys and girls to be girls, based on their biology, are now perpetrators of violence.
The LGBTIQ movement here in Australia pushing for removing the gender requirement from the Marriage Act needs to tell us if it too is on board with its global movement’s post-ssm pivot to enforcing gender theory.
Australian advocates can’t keep saying “safe schools” has nothing to do with redefining marriage in law when the same rainbow flag continues to colonise new frontiers.
And there are questions for the premiers of Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, the Chief Minister of the Australian Capital Territory and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten – all of whom support “safe schools” and its gender bending agenda for children.
Will they follow Harvard and designate dissenters of gender theory perpetrators of systematic violence?
Will future Labor-Greens governments fine people under anti-discrimination law for telling biological truths when truth-telling triggers provisions in these laws which offend political activists?
Some of us will refuse to pay the fines. That makes jail time inevitable.
Until the politicians who are on board with rainbow politics can answer these questions, Australians should not dream of letting them de-gender the Marriage Act.
Two courageous parliamentarians have begun to push back.
Recently NSW Education Minister Rob Stokes announced that “Safe Schools” will cease once the money given by the Abbott Government runs out in June.
And in Victoria, the Opposition Leader Matthew Guy has declared that teaching children their gender is fluid is a form of child abuse.
I interviewed him for ACL’s weekly radio program, Voice for Values. He pulls no punches.

If we don’t push back on all this, it will become too late to speak.
For students at Harvard University, it is already too late.
