It shouldn’t just be LGBT people helping struggling teenagers with their gender and sexuality

One in five teachers is uncomfortable discussing LGBT+ issues with pupils. As a teacher from the LGBT community, my ears pricked up yesterday when youth charity Just Like Us published the results of a poll of 6,179 primary and secondary school teachers.

Why is Mermaids promoting breast binding at events for young people?

Mermaids is arguably the most influential charity focusing on transgender rights in the UK. It claims to have been supporting transgender, non-binary and gender-diverse children, young people, and their families since 1995, and has been at the forefront of key policy changes affecting transgender people in this country.

I despair when I read stories of kids as young as two being labelled as ‘trans’ – such children need protecting from their parents

More than 80% of children who think they’re gender dysphoric revert by the time they hit puberty – so why are parents allowing toddlers to ‘become’ trans and later take hormone blockers? Watchful waiting is much better practice.

Save the Children has been captured by transgender ideology. It isn’t protecting youngsters, it’s endangering them

The charity is supposed to help vulnerable children, which is why it rightly opposes FGM. So why is it promoting the idea that it’s OK for girls as young as seven to go down a path that leads to gender reassignment surgery?
