As part of a campaign supporting LGBT children in Melbourne, Australia, an illogical and unprecedented request has been made. District schools received a request urging them to abandon the use of words such as “mom” and “dad” in favor of supposedly “more inclusive and gendered” language, in a direct attack on the fundamental pillars of the institution of the family.
As reported by the Daily Mail, Melbourne’s education system is being pushed to abandon gender-specific pronouns, among which ‘mom’ and ‘dad’ were specified. The recommendations also include creating unisex toilets, gender-neutral sports teams, and putting up rainbow flags to promote symbols of gender ideology.
The campaign has also asked teachers, as well as students and managers, to refrain from using words such as ‘boyfriend’ or ‘girlfriend,’ and replace them with ‘partner.’ The request states that parental pronouns such as mom and dad should be replaced with the more inclusive term “parent.”
Colin Bourke, the principal of Elevation Secondary College in Craigieburn, a neighboring city to Melbourne, accepted the suggested directions. He reported that schools have already begun taking steps to make LGBTQI+ students feel welcome, including “non-gender-specific bathrooms and removing some of the boy and girl signs.”
The intention to impose language modification in schools by seeking to remove terms that refer to traditional genders such as male and female is not just limited to the Australian case. Instead, it appears to be a worldwide trend driven by leftist and globalist sectors emblazoned with gender ideology.
Breitbart London recently reported that the UK’s second-largest university, the University of Manchester, has made similar requests of its staff.
In a wide-ranging guidance document on “inclusive language,” the university told staff to stop using terms such as “father” or “mother” and instead use “parent” or “guardian.”
The attack promoted by gender ideology against traditional family language has also spread to the United States. A private school in New York City issued a style guide, demanding that phrases such as “mom and dad” be replaced with “adults, friends or family.”
The guide reads, “While we recognize hateful language that promotes racism, misogyny, homophobia, and other forms of discrimination are already addressed in our school handbooks, we also recognize that we can do more than ban hateful language; we can use language to create welcoming and inclusive spaces.”
The advance of gender ideology seems to find no limits. It seeks to insert itself into the educational system from the earliest age to brainwash the most innocent, who soon become the next transmitters and promoters of the ideology.
