Gender-Bending On the State

Gender-Bending On the State

'Sir' and 'Miss' is how pupils have addressed teachers for generations. But this traditional normality will be destroyed in British schools if a state-funded LGBTQ+ 'charity' has its way.

A training session has recommended that school pupils should refer to their tutors as ‘teacher’ instead of gendered titles such as ‘Mr’ and ‘Mrs’. In a session funded by the National Education Union, LGBTQ activist Dr Elly Barnes told teachers they ought to be moving towards a ‘gender-free model’ in education.

Dr Barnes is chief executive of 'charity' Educate and Celebrate, which has has received funding from the Department for Education and various councils, as well as leftist trade unions such as the NEU. She was awarded an MBE in 2016, under the supposedly 'Conservative' government of David Cameron.

In clips of the training, Dr Barnes was seen suggesting that ‘male’ and ‘female’ categories be removed from school application forms and that school uniforms could be gender-free.  

On top of hand-outs of taxpayers' and union members' money her 'charity' charges as much as £400 for a webinar with unions, as well as its award programme which costs £1,800. 

Its website states: 'We provide LGBT+ inclusion training to ensure that you meet all of your Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) objectives for staff, support staff, leadership teams, governors, trainee teachers, student workshops, youth networks, CPD days and an Award Programme.'
