SO LAST week David Cameron emerged from his wigwam, or sheep-shed, or wherever it is he likes to tweet from, to troll actual conservatives by reminding us that ‘This week marks the ten-year anniversary of introducing the Same Sex “Marriage” Bill to Parliament. It remains one of my proudest achievements as PM. Many thousands of gay couples have been able to get “married” as a result. Proof that government really can make a positive difference.’ (I have entered the quotes around marriage and married as obviously people of the same sex cannot marry each other because marriage is between one man and one woman.)
This is not something Dave should be boasting about. Indeed, the ink was barely dry on that piece of legislation before the same people who claimed that two men could marry each other instantly started claiming that men could become women and vice versa. In just ten short years we went from same-sex ‘marriage’ to sterilising children through the use of puberty blockers. Congratulations, Dave!
The same people who pushed gay ‘marriage’ are now gaslighting the public into accepting that you can change your sex. We went from same-sex marriage to putting rapists in women’s prisons, because the poor vulnerable trans rapist now ‘identifies’ as a woman. Further, if you do not support the idea of putting rapists (trans men who identify as women) in women’s prison then you, dear reader, are the problem – not the rapist. What a glorious ten years it has been!
Also, I know it’s been a long and indeed tiresome ten years, but do you remember the Tories telling you that the only thing that would change if we altered the fundamental definition of marriage was to make some gay couples happy? They already could enter civil partnerships, which protected their civil and legal rights, but the Conservatives told us that this wasn’t enough. That you should just get onboard with The Revolution, it would not impact your life at all. Turns out that was a lie.
Today, they are forcing four-year-old children to take time out of learning their phonics and two times table to attend Pride marches in school. And if you object to it – tough. They are not really your kids anyway, don’t you know.
A mother who claims her four-year-old son was forced to take part in a Pride event is suing his south London primary school. Izzy Montague, 38, contacted Heavers Farm school and asked for her son to be excused from the June 2018 event, saying she did not want him involved with ‘adherence to views she did not accept’. The request was refused by the school’s head, Susan Papas, Central London county court heard.
Montague and her husband are ‘devout born-again Christians’ and believe that ‘sexual relations should be abstained from or take place within a life-long marriage between a man and a woman and any activity outside those confines is sinful’. They also say pride is considered to be the most serious of the deadly sins.
I know how this case is going to turn out. The mother will lose.
This is just another incident in a long line of cases where people are compelled to support ideologies they do not agree with. Forcing a child to take part in a Pride march is clearly completely bonkers. As pointed out, Pride is considered a deadly sin. Are children going to celebrate all the times they lost their temper too? Perhaps Tuesday could be Wrath Day, where the children can go stomping around the playground screaming and shouting at each other. On Wednesday they should just not bother coming to school at all, it being Sloth Day. They could sit at home watching Netflix all day. Perhaps they could co-ordinate that with one of the many teachers’ strikes to come. But I digress.
Yes, ten glorious years from ‘Let the gays get married’ to four-year- olds must take part in Pride. I remain utterly bemused that we as a society spend so much time discussing who we may or may not be sexually attracted to. These are private matters, or at least they used to be. The fact that people think it is necessary to discuss all of this with primary school children causes not just bemusement but outright concern.
So it’s best for David Cameron to get back in his wigwam. He’s caused enough damage already.
