Theresa May told a ‘star-studded audience’ at the Pink News Awards that her Government ‘will seek to streamline and de-medicalise the process of changing gender to reflect that being trans is not an illness’, and promised to press ahead ‘with inclusive relationships and sex education in English schools, making sure that LGBT issues are taught well’ to ‘eradicate homophobic and transphobic bullying’.

Elsewhere a 30-year-old woman, who from a child was convinced she was a boy, has spoken of how grateful she is finally to feel comfortable in her biological sex, although she has been left with a deeper voice, facial hair, and fears that she may never have children. She concludes that 50 years hence the ‘treatment’ of children with ‘gender dysphoria’ may be regarded as ‘one of the great medical blunders of the 21st century’.

After a string of political blunders, understandably Mrs May seeks a positive legacy, but her idea of ‘teaching well’ to avoid bullying involves indoctrinating children in half-baked ideologies and bullying any who dissent, in the vague belief that she is being ‘modern’. Unfortunately innocent children and conscientious objectors will pay the price of her delusion.
