UK school children taught that gender is a “sliding scale”

More than 800 schools across the UK have received leaflets for distribution from LGBT campaigners which claim that gender is a “spectrum.”

The document, entitled “What does LGBT+ Mean?,” claims that gender is simply ascribed at birth by medical professionals, saying that a doctor or nurse “looked at our body and gave us a label based on what they could see.”

The leaflet claims “Some people find it useful to think of gender as a sliding scale between male and female.” It also displays a scale on the page with labels between male and female, including “mostly female,” “partly female,” “both,” “neither,” “partly male,” and “mostly male.”

The document says that one “can’t just assume pronouns,” and encourages children to “politely ask” for someone else’s pronouns when first meeting them.

However, critics of the document said it was “just absurd.”

Speaking to the Times, Helen Joyce of Sex Matters asserted that “Nobody is assigned a sex.”

“I’ve given birth twice and both times I knew what sex the baby was at 20 weeks,” she said.

She added: “How did we get to a place where teachers feel they can sit and say to primary children, ‘Some people feel male, some feel female, some feel both and some feel neither’?”

Last year Gript reported on how, for no uniform day, a secondary school in Co. Meath encouraged students to wear “pride” colours representing bisexual, transgender, non-binary, demisexual, and genderfluid identities, leading some parents to express their discomfort.

The list of flags presented included “Agender, Aromantic, Asexual, Bisexual, Demisexual, Genderfluid, Genderqueer, Intersex, Lesbian, Pansexual, Polysexual, Progress, Non-Binary, Traditional, and Transgender” identities.

Notably, the “progress” flag includes black and brown bars symbolising solidarity with “people of colour,” and is usually associated with Black Lives Matter.
