Nearly 7 per cent of the children at one UK Secondary School claims to be trans or non-binary. Most of the children declared their gender change after lockdown last Summer.
According to The Mail on Sunday:
More than 60 youngsters at the school which has about 1,000 students on its roll have declared their gender to be different from their birth sex or do not identify as either male or female.
The majority have done so since most Covid-19 lockdown restrictions were lifted last summer, raising concern about the impact of online trans ‘influencers’ on youngsters who were largely confined to their homes for months.
A teacher said the pupils involved were aged between 11 and 18, almost all were girls and most identified as non-binary.
A significant proportion of those who identified as trans or non-binary before the pandemic had autism or autistic traits, but that had not been the case post-lockdown, she added.
While the school tells parents if a pupil asks to go by a different name or pronoun, staff were ‘blundering along in the dark’ without government guidance, the teacher said.
Fearful of criticism or censure, she claimed many colleagues feel obliged to accept the situation even when they have concerns about a student’s mental health or that they may be subject to peer pressure.
The revelation comes days after Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi said officials were drawing up ‘clear’ guidance on how teachers should deal with trans pupils…
The teacher, who asked not to be named for fear of losing her job or being pilloried by the trans lobby, told the MoS: ‘Since lockdown we’ve had this explosion of children saying they are non-binary.
‘It began in the summer, but since we came back in September pupils began approaching staff on almost a daily basis, telling teachers after lessons: “These are my new pronouns and this is my new name.” There were so many we just didn’t know what to do….’
The teacher attributed the sharp rise in pupils identifying as another gender to youngsters entering ‘online worlds’ during lockdown.
‘These girls spent a lot of time on social media using an avatar where you can choose your own identity and your body didn’t really matter. Now they want this new identity to continue to get away from the problems that they have.’
The damage lockdowns have inflicted on children is immeasurable.
There is a psychological war being waged on the world’s youth.
The key weapons in this war are gender confusion, cancel culture and climate change.
It’s time for parents to make their stand and take back control of their children’s education.
