Keep trans propaganda group Educate & Celebrate out of schools
Educate & is a controversial LGBT campaign group, which promotes the use of LGBT materials in schools across the country.
The group is responsible for promoting materials such as the ‘Gender Unicorn’ to teach a completely unscientific view of sex and gender.
It also recommends age-inappropriate and ideological books to children, including ‘Can I tell you about gender diversity?’ - aimed at 7-year-olds, which gives medically incorrect information about puberty blockers – and ‘ABC Pride’, which is aimed at children as young as three-years-old and is authored by Educate & Celebrate's director Dr Elly Barnes, promotes the use of pronouns such as Xe / Xem.
According to its website, it aims to "embed gender, gender identity and sexual orientation into the fabric of your school.”
Elly Barnes has openly declared that the ethos of Educate & Celebrate is to “completely smash heteronormativity”.
Smashing heteronormativity' really means smashing the traditional view of sex and gender. In other words, they want to get rid of the belief that there are men and women, and that men and women belong together.
This is the Christian and biological understanding of sex, which people have held to for millennia. This is the view most people hold today, not just Christians.
In fact, it is a school’s duty to foster good relations between people with differing beliefs.
If that wasn't enough, Jordan Gray, a former patron of the charity who has visited primary schools to 'talk about gender' on the group’s behalf and has boasted that "toddlers kind of get it straight away”, was removed from his role after exposing his genitals live on Channel 4’s Friday Night Live last year.
Despite evidence to the contrary, Educate & Celebrate has denied that Jordan ever visited schools. Rather than recognise the danger he posed to young children, Educate & Celebrate has quietly removed evidence that it worked with Jordan from its website and elsewhere.
This radical organisation is clearly ideologically driven, with no real concern for the safeguarding or protection of young children.
It is time that Educate & Celebrate was removed from schools across the country, and that the government stopped publicly funding them.
