Trans propaganda has no place in our schools, fortunately parents and the government in the UK are waking up to this brainwashing

Top UK girls schools have been having guest speakers singing the praises of transgenderism and breast-binding without parents' knowledge. Now groups like Stonewall and Mermaids are falling from grace, we must put a stop to this.

Stonewall, the LGBTQ equality charity, is haemorrhaging support. A number of high profile institutions, including the Equality and Human Rights Commission, Channel 4 television, Ofsted and the DVLA, have withdrawn from its diversity champions programme. The government's Equalities Minister Liz Truss has urged Whitehall departments to cut ties with Stonewall and stop paying the lobby group money each year. Some of Stonewall's founders, including Matthew Parris, have publicly criticised the organisation they helped establish. Parris argued that Stonewall should stick to LGB rights and steer clear of the transgender debate.

Good. Stonewall's deliberate over-interpretation of equality laws has had a hugely detrimental impact on the workings of government departments, the Crown Prosecution Service, local councils, police forces and NHS trusts. Talks by feminist professors scheduled to take place at the University of Essex were cancelled following erroneous guidance from Stonewall, a recent investigation concluded. Stonewall's insistence upon bizarre gender neutral language, such as replacing the word ‘mother' with ‘parent who has given birth', as well as edicts against single-sex spaces, are an undemocratic and elitist attempt to impose social change from on high.

ALSO ON RT.COMStonewall's reign as the gender gestapo is coming to an end as it feels the heat for its ‘trans-women are women' stance

Mermaids, a charity designed to support transgender children, fell from grace some time ago. It was dropped by the BBC's Advice Line service last year. When High Court judges ruled that children under 16 were not able to give informed consent to treatment with puberty-blocking drugs, Mermaids faced scrutiny and criticism.

Anyone who believes in women's rights, free speech, safeguarding and protecting children from unnecessary medical interventions, should welcome this growing awareness of the damage wrought by Stonewall and Mermaids.

But we still have a problem. Transgenderism is still very much with us. Institutions may be withdrawing from Stonewall but the woke view that gender identity is in our brains not our genitals and that sex is not something we are born with but must discover, now runs far deeper than Stonewall, Mermaids and all the other LGBTQ campaigning organisations with their rainbow flags and diversity champion schemes.

St Paul's Girls' School in London recently invited researchers from Princeton University's human diversity lab to talk to pupils about changing sex. The speakers at the elite private school presented research suggesting there are positive outcomes for young girls who choose to live as boys. They talked to pupils about the ‘trans youth project', a study of 300 boys and girls aged 3 to 12-years-old who ‘socially transitioned', that is, they changed their names, pronouns, dress and hairstyles in order to live as the opposite sex. It has been reported that several pupils at St Paul's wear boys' clothes and have asked teachers to call them boys' names.

According to the Sunday Times, the school sent a newsletter to parents proudly highlighting the talk which had been organised by senior pupils in the school's Science Society and Spectrum, the LGBTQ+ Society. It said that Princeton's research showing positive mental health outcomes for children who transition was particularly important in light of the recent bans on hormone therapy for under-18s.

This is not research but propaganda. It is a one-sided and dangerous narrative that runs counter to other studies that have highlighted mental health difficulties experienced by children seeking to change sex. One study conducted at the NHS's Tavistock clinic found an increase in suicidal tendencies among under-16s receiving puberty-blocking treatment. And a former practitioner at Tavistock has gone on the record to argue that ‘trans-identified children' need therapy, not just affirmation and drugs.

The event at St Paul's comes off the back of another leading girls' school having circulated a newsletter promoting breast binding and offering guidance on how best to engage in the practice. The LGBT society at Nonsuch High School for Girls in Surrey produced the newsletter which was distributed to pupils as young as 11.

Breast-binding can cause long term damage to young women. The NHS warns that breast-binding should only be a temporary measure because, "binders may strain the back and distort breast tissue, making surgical reconstruction less successful." In a recent survey of transgender adults, over 97% of respondents claimed they had experienced negative effects from breast-binding. Almost three-quarters said the practice caused them pain, with some reporting rib fractures and shortness of breath.

But the Nonsuch High School newsletter ignored all of this and instead offered young girls advice on how to bind their breasts ‘safely'. This included links to websites explaining that if binding proved painful, surgical procedures that remove breast tissue could be an option to create a "more masculine" appearance.

At both St Paul's and Nonsuch High School, it is pupils who are members of their school's LGBTQ+ societies who have taken the initiative to invite speakers or compile newsletters raising awareness about gender-transitioning. This begs the question: where are the adults?

ALSO ON RT.COMIf Forstater, sacked over transgender comments, loses tribunal appeal, no one with a job can claim to have free speech

Why, in neither school, did a teacher not have the confidence to say this material is simply not appropriate for young girls who may be impressionable and confused about their identity. It seems that a fear of being accused of transphobia still stands in the way of child protection.

It is great that Stonewall and Mermaids are, at long last, getting their comeuppance. But sadly we still have a long way to go before transgenderism is kicked out of public life altogether.
