The Telegraph reported last night that trans teenagers are sleeping in girls dormitories at a Summer camp started by former UK Prime Minister David Cameron.
When one mother queried the policy she was told that if her daughter wasn’t happy sharing a room with a trans girl (a boy), she needed to be educated to respect his identity.
According to The Telegraph:
The National Citizen Service (NCS), largely funded by the Government, has been accused of putting young people at risk by allowing them to choose which dorms, toilets and showers they want to use.
Parents on Monday night questioned whether those signing their 16- and 17-year-olds up for the two-week activity project were aware that the dorms were mixed-sex.
One mother who raised concerns about the policy was told by a local provider that if girls were uncomfortable with a boy in their bedroom, they needed “to be educated to respect the identity of the male person”, it is alleged.
Another said that her son left a camp in 2019 because he was sharing a men’s dorm with a trans male and a teenage boy who were in a sexual relationship.
The NCS was launched in 2011 by Mr Cameron, the prime minister at the time, as part of his “Big Society” plans and is seen as central to his legacy.
In the past decade, it has received more than £1.3 billion in taxpayer funding, which up until last year accounted for almost 90 per cent of the Department of Culture, Media and Sport’s youth budget.
Mr Cameron is the chairman of patrons whilst the Government appoints the trustees. Last year, it received £75 million in public funding.
However, parents and campaign groups on Monday night questioned whether the arms-length body was properly safeguarding children.
One mother told The Telegraph that her 16-year-old son, who has recently started identifying as a girl after watching videos on YouTube, signed up to the camp this year and put down “female” when asked his gender.
As a result, the local provider of the residential camp asked him which room he would prefer to sleep in.
When the mother raised concerns, she said she was told that “we will allow the young people to self-ID and they will be put into whichever dorm they feel comfortable in”.
She said: “I didn’t think that it was fair for him to go into the girls’ dorm. If mixed-sex dorms are allowed, then obviously there is the risk of sexual relations, but also this is a threat to the privacy of the girls.
“I don’t know any 16-year-old girl who would be confident being naked in public because it is such a difficult age. I think the girls and their parents need to know this is happening.”
Pretty soon now, challenging such lunacy will be considered hate speech.
How breathtakingly arrogant of the local provider to tell the concerned mum that boys can sleep and shower wherever they like.
This is a wake-up call for parents of girls everywhere.
