Two parents who are suing the UK government over guidelines on transgender issues at their sons’ school have told that their children are trapped in a culture war.
British Christians Nigel and Sally Row previously told The Times that their two sons were left confused over ‘gender-fluid’ classmates.
After raising the issue with the Isle of Wight school, the Rows received a response saying a child would be dubbed ‘trans-phobic’ if he showed surprise or frustration over a friend’s unusual appearance.
As a result, the couple chose to transfer both their sons to homeschooling and to launch legal action against the government.
The Rows said that a 500-page report, submitted by them to the court, contains great warnings from various specialists, including endocrinologists and psychologists. These explain in detail what would happen if we continue to do this sort of thing in schools.
The parents expressed hope that the legal action would be a success and would contribute to the development of clear guidelines for schools on how to support all pupils, without enforcing any ideology.
A recent refusal by more than two dozen private girls’ schools in England to admit transgender students dealt another blow to trans activists – but the problem of how to handle trans issues in schools remains unresolved.
The Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL), which represents headteachers, has issued a call to the government to urgently clarify the measures the schools should take amid a growing number of transgender ‘coming-outs’.
