A Canberra Liberals politician says the Safe Schools program has “made schools harmful” by traumatising students, damaging their innocence and asking them to sexually fantasise about their own gender.
Opposition youth spokeswoman Elizabeth Kikkert … said she had spoken to Canberra children who left school crying after being taught material from the program, which was designed to support and reduce bullying rates among LGBTIQ students and staff.
She said the children were “so upset that they could not sleep for several nights” and that they “have refused to return to their classes because they feel unsafe there“.
She then claimed teachers were asking 13-year-old female students to fantasise about other girls.
“This is overt sexualisation. One could even accurately call it grooming,” she said.
“Requiring young people to experiment with sexual attraction of any kind has no place in our classrooms.”
Government schools. Your taxes, your kids, their agenda.
