Stop Telling Children, “Male” & “Female” Are “Feelings”

Arrant nonsense, says Helen Joyce in her latest op-ed.

Male and female are objective biological terms, and we’re all one or the other, and which one we are can’t change.

Little children think superficial things like hairstyles and clothing determine whether someone is a boy or girl.

Normally, by around age seven they work out that your sex depends only on which body type you have.

But if adults they trust tell them falsehoods at this critical moment, they may be permanently confused.

Schools should not teach children unscientific nonsense about the sexes.

It’s as bad as allowing anti-vaxxers write the science syllabus, or flat-earthers provide geography lessons.

Read the whole thing.
