Rees-Mogg: NHS Survey Of Gender ‘Intrusive’
Jacob Rees-Mogg has strongly criticised a survey sent out by the Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust, which asks year six pupils: “Do you feel the same inside as the gender you were born with?”
Parents were understandably shocked upon seeing the survey, sent out by a school on behalf of the Trust. Lyndsey Simpson, whose 10-year old daughter brought the survey home, commented:
“I don’t want someone putting into my daughter’s head that she might not be happy with her own gender”.
Jacob Rees-Mogg meanwhile slammed the survey:
“The problem with this approach is not just with the question but with the intrusive survey that invades people’s privacy and assumes the state has a role in a matter that actually belongs within the family.
“These questions are not likely to be helpful. The child is too young – if they have these sorts of issues, the parents are the right ones to discuss it with, not a state survey.”
Tim Loughton MP, Children’s Minister, said that the contents of the survey and quite correctly added:
“forcing children to question whether they are the right gender so early on can be deeply destabilising”.
However, in reality, the government has done little but promote the wider agenda that the survey is part of. The ‘Equality and Diversity’ liberal agenda ceased to be about true equality a long time ago and respect for the privacy and the rights of individual adults and it has become something very sinister indeed, becoming an ideological agenda which is regularly pushed onto children through the education system amoung others. Is it not dangerous especially for children when such things are becoming an integral part of their education and indeed entertainment diet?
