UK: new guidelines for "trans children" at school
No to the "social" transition for primary school girls. Careful evaluation in the other grades to ensure that there is no "social" influence. Involvement of parents in every decision. Bathrooms divided by gender. And an end to the LGBTQAI+ propaganda which for years has almost exclusively managed affective and sexual education courses. Look at the turning point in the United Kingdom so as not to make the same mistakes

For years in the UK, sex education in schools has meant LGBTQAI+ propaganda managed by organizations such as Stonewall and Mermaids. The epidemic of transitions among minors, often favored by schools, convinced the Sunak government to intervene to regulate the issue with new guidelines. Today, when emotional and sexual education in schools is being discussed in Italy too - one of the main points of the Zan bill - looking at the English experience can be very useful to avoid making the same mistakes.


After months of hesitation and discussions Rishi Sunak's British government has published guidelines on how schools should deal with children who say they want to change gender.

The Minister for Women and Equal Opportunities Kemi Badenoch he explained that it became necessary to protect minors given that “LGBT+ activists had taken control of transgender issues in schools misinterpreting the law." The association Sex Matters, of which Maya Forstater is a member, among others, has worked very intensely for the new guidelines alongside Badenoch.

The 19-page document provides that primary school does not initiate the social transition – the process by which children change pronouns, name and uniform – while in other grades teachers will need to ensure that the pupil has not been influenced by social media or peers. Another important point: parents' opinions will have "great weight" and their consent will be required in the vast majority of cases. Teachers should also consider whether children feel pressured to change their gender identity because “they just don't align with the stereotypes associated with their gender.”

The social transition towards the opposite gender will therefore be "extremely rare" in schools, the government said in publishing the guidelines, which are not an obligation but will certainly be adopted by schools and universities as they offer them legal protection.

The document also addresses the question of bathrooms and changing rooms.  Dysphoric pupils should be prevented from using facilities designated for the opposite sex. If they feel "discomfort" when using the facilities, they should be found "alternative solutions", such as allowing children to use toilets that can only be used by one child at a time and can be locked from the inside. Colleges must ensure that no child is forced to share a room with a child of the opposite sex.

«These guidelines put the interests of all children first, eliminating any confusion about protections that must be in place for biological sex and same-sex spaces» explained the Minister of Education Gillian Keegan. 

Stonewall, the LGBT+ association which has been considered a point of reference on these issues, is totally against the document: "These recommendations are impracticable, dangerous and contrary to the law on equality."
