Let little boys wear tiaras, says the Church of England: New advice on transgender bullying for teachers in Anglican schools

Post by HoratioTarr on Mon Nov 13, 2017 12:56 am

First topic message reminder :

Boys as young as five should be able to wear tiaras at school without criticism, teachers in Church of England schools are to be told.
Male pupils should also be free to dress up in a tutu or high heels without attracting any comment or observation, according to anti-bullying rules sent out by the Church yesterday.
The instructions for the CofE’s 4,700 schools said they should not require children to wear uniforms that ‘create difficulty for trans pupils’.


This appears to give official backing to schools that ban skirts to avoid discrimination against transgender children.
Schools are also told they cannot use the Christian faith or Bible teachings to justify behaviour that is considered to amount to bullying – for example, identifying a transgender pupil by a sex other than the one they have chosen. The advice contains instructions on how to report bullying, including sample forms on which teachers are encouraged to name the alleged bully and their target, and use tick boxes to describe what happened.
Examples include name-calling, social media trolling, or insulting gestures.
The rules to ‘challenge homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying’ follow initial guidelines published by the Church three years ago which said being gay can be good and pupils should ‘revere and respect all members of the diverse community’.
The official teaching of the CofE, however, remains that gay sex is sinful and that members of the clergy should not be in an active sexual relationship with someone of the same sex. The Church also says marriage must continue to be between a man and a woman.
Conservative Christian activists condemned the new rules yesterday.
Andrea Minichiello Williams of Christian Concern – an evangelical member of the CofE’s parliament, the General Synod – said: ‘These rules are unkind, unloving and lacking in compassion. We are all against bullying, but the Church is using these guidelines to pursue an agenda that runs counter to the Church’s teaching.’




The new guidance came as a Christian teacher was suspended from a school in Oxfordshire after accidentally calling a transgender pupil ‘girl’ instead of ‘boy’. Joshua Sutcliffe, 27, faces a disciplinary hearing this week in which he could lose his job, after the parents complained.
The CofE rules say children in nurseries and the primaries that make up the majority of Church schools should be free to follow their own inclinations when they dress. They state: ‘In the early years context and throughout primary school, play should be a hallmark of creative exploration.
‘Pupils need to be able to play with the many cloaks of identity … Children should be at liberty to explore the possibilities of who they might be without judgment or derision. For example, a child may choose the tutu, princess’s tiara and heels and/or the fireman’s helmet, tool belt and superhero cloak without expectation or comment.’


The rules add: ‘Within school communities there will be members of staff who are co-habiting, in same-sex relationships, bisexual, trans or exploring their gender identity.
‘Same-sex parents and trans parents may be among the parent body and in most secondary schools a minority of pupils will come out as gay or lesbian during their years in the school.
‘An increasing number of children and young people are being referred to gender identity services … an increasing number of primary and secondary schools are reporting incidences of children wishing to identify as other than the gender of their birth.’
Any school that does not teach the importance of gay or transgender rights will be ‘failing in their duty to prepare their pupils to live in modern Britain’, the Church rules say.

The guidance adds that there can be ‘no justification for this negative behaviour based on the Christian faith or the Bible’. It states that ‘the Church of England’s teaching on human sexuality and a range of Christian views should be taught, as well as a range of perspectives from other faiths and world views’.
The Most Rev Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, said: ‘Central to Christian theology is the truth that every single one of us is made in the image of God. Every one of us is loved unconditionally by God. This guidance helps schools to offer the Christian message of love, joy and celebration of our humanity without exception or exclusion.’
Roman Catholic schools are to cut the terms ‘mother’ and ‘father’ from admissions forms to avoid offending step-parents and same-sex couples.
It follows a complaint by a parent against Holy Ghost Roman Catholic Primary School in Wandsworth, south London, after it used ‘mother/guardian’ and ‘father/guardian’ on a form.
The Office of the Schools Adjudicator upheld the complaint, saying the wording might ‘be taken to imply that the school is restricting its definition [of parent]’.
The Catholic Education Service is understood to be preparing a form using ‘the family’ instead.

My very good mate in Colchester is transexual and I have watched the treatment she gets from fools like Smelly.   I have also gone to court on her behalf when one of the pumped up steriod brigade, which probably inclues Smelly, threw her across the room and nearly broke her back.   Because he was a well known thug, most of the snivelling men wouldn't go to court as witnesses.   I did, and he got put away, so don't fucking lecture me on having a sense of humour about underhanded, oh I'm not really taking the piss, posts about transexuals.   Got it?


wow you ex husband must have done a real number on you for you to be so bitter and twisted

a real man hater lol!, i bet you're like that lunatic from misery

but anyway lets clear the air

first of all i didn't abuse your mate, nor would i, he sounds like a perfectly nice bloke, and anyway im not in the habit of going round starting fights with random people, thats a surefire way to get your ass kicked.

i don't hate transgenders, i pity them, i think they are desperately ill and in need of professional mental help, but instead they get people like you who enable their delusions instead of trying to help them through.

you're the real abuser here sassy, you probably feed on their misery, the drama of being a transgender is not doubt like a soap opera to you, but these are real people, they arent your personal freak show, they have very serious issues that often lead to suicide because they haven't been dealt with.

you can paint me as the bad guy all you want, but the reality is that i would prefer a less drastic and more lasting solution to their problems than irreversible surgery that more often than not false to address the underlying mental health problem these people are suffering with

40% of transgenders commit suicide and that includes post op trans men and women, and personally i don't think you give a damn about how man transgenders kill themselves so long as your narrative and liberal agenda gets advanced

alas for lady macbeth too bad she did not have your recipe for removing blood stains.


What proof do you have that transsexuals are mentally ill?

Is it heck being phased out.    I call my other half my husband or my partner depending on what mood I'm in.   Both are interchangeable.

My late wife simply referred to me as "oi you" and I obeyed or agreed, as appropriate, without question.

Absolutely right.

Smelly, wife and husband haven't been phased out at all. In fact we were pronounced husband and husband.

As Horatio says, don't be silly.

Ah, a 'could be' from 2012. Seems legit. That'll be why the word husband was used in my ceremony, and husband and wife at my sister's last year.

Get with the real world smelly, not headlines from Hate Mail five years ago. Try getting away from your computer for a few days, might do wonders Wink

What proof do you have that transsexuals are mentally ill?

What proof is there that people who hear voices are mentally ill??
