It is irresponsible of the BBC to introduce impressionable children as young as six to the idea that they can choose to be something other than their biological sex.
The more we promote the idea that a boy can be born into a girl’s body and a girl can be born into a boy’s body, and that drugs and surgery can put things right, the more children will become utterly confused.
Respecting and preserving a child’s birth sex should be seen as a child protection issue.
Some defenders of ‘Just A Girl’ have argued that children need to see this kind of thing to prevent bullying of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) children. No one is arguing that any child (LGBT or otherwise) should be bullied, and surely we should be able to teach children not to bully without pretending that men can become women and women can become men.
It is utterly inappropriate for the BBC to peddle this ideology to children, and presumably in many cases, this happens without parental knowledge. This issue strikes at the very heart of who we are which is being radically distorted and confused.
