Keep trans lobby group Mermaids out of primary schools
Since 2009, the number of children referred to the UK's Gender Identity Clinic has risen from 97 to 2,519 - a staggering 2,500% increase.
Children as young as four are being encouraged to present themselves as the opposite sex and gender, and are becoming confused like never before. Who or what is driving this?
A significant influence is 'Mermaids', a controversial transgender lobby group, which has recently been found to be spreading misinformation about the science of transgenderism and about legal duties upon schools under the Equality Act.
Mermaids recently received a £500,000 grant from the National Lottery and also receives funding from Children in Need.
The reality is that up to 98% of children suffering from gender confusion naturally resolve these feelings and become reconciled to their birth sex with the onset of puberty.
The number of children confused about their sex and gender and seeking treatment is escalating.
It's time to stop this radical group from spreading misinformation that will lead to potentially harmful treatments being unnecessarily given to very young children.
