"Good Society" is simply “Safe Schools” 2.0

Good Society is simply “Safe Schools” 2.0

Politicians have lost control of woke bureaucrats pushing an LGBTIQA+ wagon.

Just when politicians tell us the “Safe Schools” radical LGBTIQA+ gender fluid and sexual indoctrination program is dead, buried and cremated, it pops back up again under different branding.

It’s almost as if the politicians can’t control it or have lost the will to do so.

The latest iteration is courtesy of the Morrison Government’s new “The Good Society” resource which has been produced for children in all Australian schools.

I don’t believe for a moment that Christian Prime Minister Scott Morrison is aware of it but sadly this nonsense is being enabled by others in his government and certainly by his woke bureaucracy.

Here’s a sample of what “The Good Society” is serving up to your children:

The terms sex and gender are sometimes used as if they’re interchangeable, but they are different things.

A person’s sex - male or female or intersex - is determined at birth and describes their biological and physiological characteristics like chromosomes and genitals.

A person’s gender is their sense of themselves in relation to their biological sex. A person’s gender identity can be the same as their sex assigned at birth, or it can differ.

This is exactly what “Safe Schools” was teaching before it was supposedly axed by the Turnbull Government and the New South Wales Berejiklian Government.

NSW Education Minister Sarah Mitchell keeps saying “Safe Schools” has been abolished but gender fluidity keeps turning up in schools and teachers’ staff rooms.

And more is on the way courtesy of “The Good Society”.

No sensible person believes gender is “assigned at birth”, as if midwives, doctors and parents conspire to inflict something upon a child.

Biology, anatomy, DNA and bone structure tell us what gender a baby is, well before birth.

But that doesn’t stop the “gender whisperers”.

Teaching children some transcendental philosophy that says their mind can tell them they are something in contradiction to their biology is spooky, weird and dangerous.

There is an epidemic of confused children presenting to gender clinics around our nation as a result of this new philosophy.

None of this is to make light of the serious issue of gender dysphoria which affects a small minority of people and until the promotion of gender fluid ideology, an even smaller number of children.

Struggles in this area are real and people need love and care.

But that is different to indoctrinating an entire generation at school.

“The Good Society” encourages boys to experiment with gender fluidity as part of so-called “empathy training” by wearing women’s shoes.

Its gender ambiguous sex education animated videos would raise the eyebrows of many parents.

The Good Society sprung up as a result of the Respect @ Work: Sexual Harassment National Inquiry Report (2020), which was commissioned in the wake of the Brittany Higgins rape allegations.

Under the heading School-based respectful relationships education, recommendation 10 says:

All Australian governments ensure children and young people receive school-based respectful relationships education that is age appropriate, evidence-based and addresses the drivers of gender-based violence, including sexual harassment.

In response, the Morrison Government’s Respect Matters initiative has spawned “The Good Society” for use in schools.

It would seem the assumption is that violence against women is because of gender stereotyping which stipulates that males act in a certain way.

The program seems designed to break down the idea of gender norms as a way to prevent violence against women.

This is laudable but emasculating boys and men is not the way.

Surely teaching good character and the art of being gentlemen and ladies would be more effective than seeking to deconstruct the differences between the genders.

The Respect Matters program includes the Good Society online platform. The Good Society platform allows teachers to select and assign resources for use in their classroom. This provides flexibility for teachers to address the specific needs of their students and school community.

It's hard to see how further confusing children about gender will stop violence against women.
