‘Why is my teenage girl picked on for NOT being gay or trans?’ A disturbing look at how teachers and pupils have turned tolerance on its head

‘Why is my teenage girl picked on for NOT being gay or trans?’ A disturbing look at how teachers and pupils have turned tolerance on its head. By Suzanne Glover.

Every day after school, my 13-year-old daughter Bella tells me about her day. …

Bella’s friend Jessica … came out last year after she started dating Alexandra in another Year 9 class. Only Alexandra has since decided she’s now transgender and is living as a boy called Alex — who must only be referred to as ‘he’ — despite being a pupil at an all-girls school.

There were huge dramas when another classmate, Rebecca, confessed to Laura, who is in her maths set, that she was sexually attracted to her. Laura, who used to present as a boy, angrily rejected her, saying she had jumped to the wrong conclusions, leaving Rebecca in tears. However, Laura has since decided she is gay after all, and the pair are now dating. …

Who says the gender ideologues aren’t having a huge impact?

Bella has totted it up and she and her friends estimate that around 12 per cent — one in eight — of her year group have already come out as gay, bisexual or transgender. Other parents I talk to at similar girls selective schools near us in the Home Counties cite similar percentages. …

1.6 per cent of adult women in the UK identify as lesbian, gay or bisexual. Although it is not tracked, it is estimated that the number of transgender people lies somewhere between 0.2 per cent and 1 per cent.

But there’s a big gap between these official figures and what we are seeing in our schools, particularly among girls who studies show are more malleable. …

Political correctness starts early and has gone ballistic:

Bella has learned to choose her pronouns carefully after innocently forgetting to use ‘he’ or ‘they’ instead of ‘she’ when talking about other transgender or non-binary pupils. Anyone who slips, she says, gets snapped at by the pupils who pride themselves on being more ‘woke’ and enlightened. …

One parent reported: ‘Being trans is a gold star in the eyes of other teens.’ The flipside however is that ‘cisgender’ has become a term of abuse against straight teens. Parents told the study how their trans children derided straight children, whom they viewed as ‘dumb and boring’, and were ‘disparaging’ about ‘heterosexuality, marriage and nuclear families’. Bella says she knows the feeling: ‘When I talk about liking boys to some girls in my year I am treated as if I am stupid and I don’t get it.’

I can’t help feeling that the sexual revolutionaries are having their way with some of our children.
