A group which describes itself as ‘a counter-cultural offensive against the forces of Leftism, feminism and modernism’ has slammed LGBT charity Stonewall for producing home learning materials for children which, it claims, promote a narrative of ‘inner gender identity’.
In an editorial on its website, The Conservative Woman wrote: ‘Reception children (four or five years old) are encouraged to watch a video of the trans racing driver, Roberta Cowell. Stonewall informs the children that ‘Roberta was trans, this means that when she was born people thought she was a boy, but when she got older she told them, “I’m a woman, please call me Roberta”. Imagine being four, five or six and being told by adults that you can change your sex just like that.”
The editorial also states: “Recently the Minister for Women & Equalities, Liz Truss, has begun to push back by indicating that she will protect single-sex spaces. In response, Stonewall has said it is worried. It said: ‘For many years, trans people have been using services that match their gender without issue and this should not change’. That ‘without issue‘ is revealing. In two little words, Stonewall erases the efforts of thousands of women who have been battling to protect single-sex services. It pretends whole organisations don’t exist, such as Fair Play For Women, WomensPlaceUK, SafeSchoolsAlliance and others.
“All this might be a storm in a teacup but for the fact that Stonewall is deeply embedded across our public sector. Our public institutions don’t just allow Stonewall in, but pay Stonewall to spread this ideology, unanchored in science or public acceptance.”
The editorial concludes: “If Stonewall is committed to the ideology that trans women are women at their say-so; that men can self-ID into women’s private spaces; that our children should be taught at school that their ‘gender’ was ‘assigned’ at birth; that changing gender is easy, Liz Truss and other Conservative MPs need to make it stop. They need to end the contracts with Stonewall and end the payments to Stonewall. They need to end the gaslighting of women and children and end the corruption of science, language and logic. Make it all stop.”
