Oxford: clouded thinking

Concerned parents joined forces in April to persuade Oxfordshire County Council to withdraw its Trans Toolkit from local schools.

The Christian Institute

The booklet, created by many local authorities, labels the view that there are only two genders ‘transphobic bullying’ and sees gender more as a ‘cloud rather than a spectrum’. Tracy Shaw set up a parents’ group, which believes that the trans schools guidance undermines parents, promotes stereotyping, and puts ‘aside biological reality’. In six months, 97 parents have joined. One child was referred to a support group for gender-confused children by a teacher, who was concerned because the girl had short hair and wore trousers.
