The Australian brings yet another LGTBI ‘gender theory’ program to our attention today, this time called ‘Catching on Early’:
Written with input from the La Trobe University research centre, Catching on Early is a 200-page guide for primary schools that touches on gender theory and contains a lesson on “IVF, surrogacy and other assisted-conception treatments”.
A spokeswoman defended the Catching On Early program as “an evidence-based and optional resource, founded on research into sexuality education”. She said it was not compulsory in any school.
In case you’ve been unable to keep track, we now have Safe Schools, Minus 18, All of Us, Start Early, Building Respectful Relationships – and Catching on Early. Please let me know if I’ve missed any (very possible as keeping track of the extreme left’s agenda here is a treacherous task).
To really help things along, the Victorian government has also appointed Roz Ward (pictured) to a high-level committee advising on education issues:
Roz Ward, the hardline Marxist behind the contentious Safe Schools program, has been appointed to a high-level committee advising the Victorian government on education issues.
With the taxpayer-funded sexual and gender diversity program having become a hot election issue, after the Greens and Labor pledged to boost funding, the Andrews Labor government appears increasingly committed to pushing an LGBTI agenda in the schoolyard.
Yes, that’s the same Roz Ward who proudly confirmed that the Safe Schools program has nothing to do with anti-bullying:
A Safe Schools national symposium was told by the program’s Victorian co-ordinator, Roz Ward, that schools could ignore concerns raised about the agenda.
“When people do complain then school leadership can very calmly and graciously say, ‘You know what? We’re doing it anyway, tough luck’!” she told more than 300 attendees.
“(It’s) not about celebrating diversity; not about stopping bullying,” Ms Ward said.
“(It’s) about gender and sexual diversity. About same-sex attractive, about being transgender, about being lesbian, gay, bisexual — say the words — transgender, intersex. Not just, ‘Be nice to everyone; everyone’s great’.”
To top it off, Ward also has no educational qualifications whatsoever – a perfect fit for a high level educational committee… and your Year 3 child:
And despite having no education qualifications, she has taught elements of the program, designed for the Years 7 and 8 curriculums, to Year 3 children.
Never underestimate the extreme left’s thirstiness for implementing its sickening agenda, which I’ll leave Ward to explain further:
“LBGTI oppression and hetronormativity are woven into the fabric of capitalism […] This push to fit people into these physical and social gender constructs that promote heterosexuality is still incredibly strong and reinforced through the judicial system, through the medical, you know, all of medicine, the media and all social institutions […] Only Marxism provides both the theory and the practice of genuine human liberation […] The left historically and practically has been the key driver for the struggles for LGBTI rights […] Marxism offers the hope and the strategy needed to create a world where human sexuality, gender and how we relate to our bodies can blossom in extraordinarily new and amazing ways that we can only try to imagine today […] Alongside sexism, homophobia and transphobia both serve to break the spirits of ordinary people, to consume our thoughts, to make us accept the status quo and for us to keep living or aspiring to live, or feel like we should live, in small social units and families, where we must reproduce and take responsibility for those people in those units.’’
