Leftie Lunacy: The mind woggles


‘Don’t say “boys” – it could offend trans members.’ The latest diktat in the Scouts transitioning saga is that leaders must use gender-neutral terms when addressing children.

Instead of saying ‘boys and girls‘, a leader should say: ‘Hello everybody’. This comes just after Girlguiding UK said boys who identify as female can shower with girls and share their sleeping quarters, without any need for parents to be informed.

All this is about helping transgender Scouts feel more comfortable, the progressives who run Scouting and Guiding in this country tell us.

But since the best estimates put the number of those with gender dysphoria at around 0.6 per cent of the population, we wonder how many genuine transgender Scouts or Guides there are?

Should make for some interesting discussions round the campfire.
