Cross about cross-dressing?

Cross about cross-dressing? By David Van Gend.

Where is the parental rage to protect our children from an ideologically creepy Labor-Green government?

Mums and dads across the country look set to elect a party that has vowed to impose the kooky notion of gender fluidity on all of our children, even those seeking refuge in religious schools. …

Labor’s Assistant Equality Minister-in-waiting, Louise Pratt, has expressed her delight at the US initiative of drag queens (male transvestites) visiting primary schools to give kids ‘glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models’. Pratt enthuses, ‘Drag Queen Story Time is a wonderful idea that celebrates diversity.’

And Pratt is well placed as a literary critic, since according to Star Observer, the Senator is ‘an out lesbian (whose) longtime ex-partner is a trans man and activist working in the WA community.’ To diversify further, they co-parent their child with another Labor politician and his male partner, ‘one of whom is the biological father’. …

Labor’s Health Minister-in-waiting, Catherine King, will make it a ‘personal priority’ to outlaw attempts by doctors or counselors to help gender-confused children get comfortable again with their true sex. …

Sad case:

Consider the case of Walt Heyer, a quietly-spoken elderly gentleman whom I met in the USA. For many years Walt passed himself off as a woman before regretting that move and reverting, as best one can with a surgically-damaged body, to his natural male sex.

What led Walt to want to be a woman? He explains the strange form of abuse that messed with a little boy’s sense of self:

My mom and dad didn’t have any idea that when they dropped their son off for a weekend at Grandma’s that she was dressing their boy in girls’ clothes. Grandma told me it was our little secret. My grandmother withheld affirmations of me as a boy, but she lavished delighted praise upon me when I was dressed as a girl. Feelings of euphoria swept over me with her praise, followed later by depression and insecurity about being a boy. Her actions planted the idea in me that I was born in the wrong body. She nourished and encouraged the idea, and over time it took on a life of its own.

A Labor government of sexual revolutionaries?
