• ‘More than 100 Genders’? Seriously, Kids Being Taught this in Great Britain

    Surge Summary: In Great Britain, the BBC has just released a series of videos for children espousing popular LGBTQ propaganda – including the idea there are actually one-hundred “genders”. Not everyone, even among the Left, agrees.

    Are the kids of Great Britain ready for “The Big Talk”? No, not that one. Mom or Dad used to deliver that one. Apparently, they’ve moved on from that model to something more “evolved”.

    Tyler O’Neil explains:

    This month, the BBC released a series of instructional videos for British teachers called “The Big Talk.” The videos cover all sorts of sexual topics and gender identity. One video claims there are more than 100 gender identities and another warns children that “people can go to prison” for being perceived as disrespectful.

    Does each classroom have to investigate and elaborate on every one of that one-hundred? Wherever will they find the time anymore for “readin’, writin’ and ‘rithmetic”?

    In the short film “Respecting Myself and Others,” a teacher tells kids that “people can go to prison if it’s shown they’re disrespecting or being hateful to people because of a difference that person perceives.”

    She condescendingly claims that those who disagree with transgender identity “just don’t know any better yet.” (Remember: endocrinologists have warned that doctors are actually endangering kids, giving them a disease in their attempts to affirm their transgender identities.)

    Then there’s the video called  “Understanding Sexual and Gender Identities” which instructs there are more than 100 gender identities.

    When asked what the different gender identities are, a relationships and sex education teacher tells kids, “There are so many gender identities. So we know we’ve got male and female, but there are over 100, if not more, gender identities now. You’ve got some people who might call themselves gender queer, who are just like, ‘I don’t really want to be anything in particular, I’m just going to be me.’”

    But hold on! There’s a problem in LGBTQ paradise: Some sources in Britain have challenged the video’s one-hundred-gender claim. They insist the true number of gender identities is only six.

    I suppose that’s some kind of progress.

    The BBC, though, isn’t fazed. It’s standing by its one-hundred-gender-identities conclusion, “despite doctors, general practitioners, recognizing six,” The Telegraph‘s Celia Walden wrote.

    Yes, the Royal College of General Practitioners has boiled the gender choices down to a paltry six: male, female, gender neutral, non-binary, gender fluid, and gender queer.

    All of this is nonsense, of course. Biological sex is binary: male and female. Some people suffer from disorders of sexual development which leave them infertile and with confusing genitalia, but the biological purpose of the sex binary is reproduction, which requires one male and one female.

    The more nebulous concept of gender is rooted in the binary, but men and women do not always follow gender stereotypes, which can be overly rigid. This does not make them any less male or female, however.

    However someone conceives himself or herself, biological sex should determine the standards of medical care, not nebulous gender identity. Sadly, doctors are embracing gender identity against biological sex. In one tragic case, a pregnant woman went to the hospital in labor. Because the woman identified as a man, looked like a man, and claimed to be a man, the nurses ruled out pregnancy and labor. They failed to treat this woman in the right way, and her baby died.

    Would that be classed as abortion-by-gender-confusion, then? If so, the Left wouldn’t consider that all that much of a problem, I guess.

    Perhaps worse, the doctors took the wrong message from the situation. Instead of realizing they need to follow the biological sex binary, they said they needed to have a more expansive view of health, according to transgender identity.

    Certain drugs will help a male human recover but harm a female. An overabundance of opposite sex hormones can seriously damage the healthy functioning of a human body.

    …because sexes are different. Men and women are, biologically, different.

    Unfortunately, those in Britain — and elsewhere — who oppose this gender identity gibberish are being silenced. Call them the “pro-family” sector. Call them the “common sense” cohort.

    Believe it or not, transgender activists have called the police on feminists who commit the violation of disagreeing with transgender orthodoxy.  Not Bible-preaching pastors, not the British version of “red-necks” but feminists. The LBGTQ-warriors are attempting to weaponize British law against “hate crimes”. Yes, the police have been dispatched to investigate people who dare to call a male a “he,” when that man has identified as a woman.

    The BBC video is attempting to normalize the concept that people should be penalized — put in prison? — if they “misgender” someone. The BBC is also encouraging and equipping teachers to condition young ones that there are “more than 100 gender identities,” even though gender activists who’ve taken control over at the Royal College of General Practitioners say there are “only” six.

    In other words, the situation has gone from disturbing delusion (six genders) to a jaw-dropping parody (over one-hundred).

    This strategy is dangerous on many levels. If there are more than 100 gender identities, what is to prevent every unique individual in the world from claiming his or her own “gender identity?” Then, if anyone refuses to call that person by his or her unique pronoun, that offender could be considered guilty of “hate speech” and carted off to prison.

    Once society formally or functionally grants permission to suspend or ignore the facts of the world as it really is, where does one draw the line?

    Of course, this ideology is all about power. Those who claim to be marginalized can force others to do what they want, with the threat of prison if they refuse. Independent thought will be punished, even if it is more accurate to the reality of the biological binary.

    It is truly tragic and ironic that the island that produced George Orwell has failed so utterly to grasp his central lesson in 1984. If you control the language, you can stamp out independent thought. Now, the BBC is normalizing the idea of going to prison for independent thought.
