The student uses ‘genders’ when he means ‘sexes’, but the biological science of male and female (sex) has become so morphed with the sociological construct of masculinity and femininity, maleness and femaleness and assertions of identity (gender) that the vernacular has become confused: ‘gender’ now seems to mean ‘sex’, principally because ‘sex’ has come to mean intercourse.
That aside, here is a video of a teacher filmed by a student who has been thrown out of class for insisting there are only to genders (by which he means there is male and female):
Shocking, isn’t it? This is an ‘inclusive’ school, and that appears to mean there is only one opinion that is is “acceptable in the school”. The teacher says he had given the student an “opportunity to keep quiet”, but the student had chosen to pursue the matter: there is just male and female, he insisted. The teacher then instructs the student: “Could you please keep that opinion to your own house.” When challenged, the teacher insists that what he is teaching is “national school authority policy”. The students responds, “It’s not scientific whatsoever.” The teacher then helpfully enlightens: “Not every policy is scientific, Murray.” And then the student corners the teacher over the definition of ‘inclusion’: how can it be inclusive to exclude a student for expressing a scientific view on sex (or, for that matter, a social view on gender)? He had simply expressed something he believes in, and was punished for it.
When the teacher reiterates that the school’s policy of inclusion is designed to ensure there is no discrimination, the student clarifies his understanding of gender (ie sex): “I’m not making any discrimination. I’m simply saying there are two genders – male and female. Anything else a personal identification.”
The students is then rebuked because he chose to “make an issue of making a point which is contrary to policy”.
We don’t know the school (or the name of this teacher), but it is simply one example of the (trans)gender ideology which is being inculcated in the minds of children: future generations will grow up believing that ‘male and female’ is as otiose as the concept of ‘God’; enlightened ones transcend these primitive constructs and such ‘medieval’ levels of ignorance.
While the Church of England seems content to facilitate the inculcation, Pope Francis has put his foot down with a document: ‘Male and Female He Created Them: Towards a path of dialogue on the question of gender theory in education‘ (BBC: ‘Vatican issues guidance questioning modern gender identity‘). It speaks of an ‘educational crisis’ and an agenda of debate which can “annihilate the concept of nature” or destabilise the divinely-ordained institution of the family. The document warns that Gender Theory “denies the difference and reciprocity in nature of a man and a woman”, and considers them as “merely the product of historical and cultural conditioning”. Identity would then “become the choice of the individual, one which can also change over time”.
The Catholic News Service summarises further:
…the congregation said the Catholic Church and those proposing a looser definition of gender can find common ground in “a laudable desire to combat all expressions of unjust discrimination,” in educating children to respect all people “in their peculiarity and difference,” in respecting the “equal dignity of men and women” and in promoting respect for “the values of femininity.”
And while great care must be taken to respect and provide care for persons who “live situations of sexual indeterminacy,” those who teach in the name of the Catholic Church must help young people understand that being created male and masculine or female and feminine is part of God’s plan for them.
British Christians who believe in (and dare to articulate) the natural order of ‘male and female’ are going to have a tough time over the coming years. Oppression may begin with a student being excluded from class; it will soon progress to an official state orthodoxy and mandatory compliance on pain of dismissal from one’s job, or summary arrest and trial for transgressing the laws of ‘hate’. Who would have thought that the matter of male and female, the nature of marriage, and the truth about the human person would become the foundation of Christian persecution?
