Sixth Form Student Forced Out of (Poor Quality Private) School For Questioning Transgenderism

Sixth Form Student Forced Out of (Poor Quality Private) School For Questioning Transgenderism

REPORTS about a sixth-former who says she was forced out of her private school because she questioned a visiting speaker about her definition of ‘a woman’ should shock us. The fact that pressure for her to leave came mostly from her peers should trouble us. For many, however, this story was no surprise.

Parents with school-age children know how thoroughly queer theory has infiltrated our institutions. The idea that male and female are damaging social constructs, and you must choose your gender from an ever-increasing number, is now an article of faith for many teenagers.

From academia, through neo-Marxists writers such us Foucault and Butler, into the social sciences and eventually the PSHE lessons of our impressionable young, this cultural revolution seems unstoppable.

I have witnessed first-hand the fallout of this insidious ideology. Two young family members who attended a ‘girls only’ football camp were compelled to call a male player ‘Ruby’ and pretend that he was a girl. Their anger and frustration at being co-opted into a lie was palpable. My concerns for their safeguarding were dismissed as bigoted. It would seem that, in the final analysis, girls don’t really matter.

I have witnessed parents exercising heroic patience as their brainwashed offspring proclaim that they no longer identify as their biological sex, and that unless this newfound identity is affirmed, these kind, loving parents are not providing a ‘safe space’. Parents who would give their lives for their kids are now cast as the enemy.

Apparently, if you are a teenage boy, you can no longer fancy just girls. You have to be open to all genders, otherwise you are the sexual equivalent of a racist. The friend who described this situation in her son’s secondary school mentioned, almost incidentally, ‘it’s in the primary school too, now’.

So, to hear of a girl who dares raise her head above the parapet, only to be resoundingly beaten down, does not shock us. Battle-weary, we simply dust off the debris from yet another targeted attack on good sense and moral probity.

There are two aspects of the story, however, that should have called us to attention.

First, this happened in a private girls’ school. Traditionally, feminism has underpinned the culture of such schools. The Girls’ Day School Trust, for example, demonstrate this sentiment in their promotion of traditionally male-dominated subjects: ‘We are proud to be able to run groundbreaking initiatives that result in statistics to buck the trend and break the stereotypes when it comes to encouraging young women into STEM.’ 

I make no comment on the drive of these schools to ‘empower’ young women, except to say that it is entirely incompatible with the promotion of transgender rights. The struggle between feminists and the trans lobby is now well established.

Clearly, in the school attended by the girl in question, women’s rights have been superseded by trans rights. We can only assume that there were no aspiring sportswomen amongst that sixth-form pack; none who might wish to compete at a decent level, anyway. Or maybe they don’t mind the possibility of being thoroughly defeated by a trans woman; a prospect ever closer thanks to their feral silencing of the one sane voice in their school.

Of course, it’s not only promising female athletes who should have been concerned. Those girls who reportedly ‘shouted, screamed, swore and spat’ at the heretic were in fact crafting their own demise. By aligning themselves with the trans agenda, they unwittingly relinquished their unfettered access to female-only spaces.

I wonder if they’ll be so loyal to the cause when they see a trans woman coming in to the female changing room to try on a dress. Underwear-clad, will they not wish for half the courage of the girl they bullied out of their school? Will they not regret having silenced her objections?

The sad reality is that they probably won’t even make the connection. For all their expensive, private education (and this is the second noteworthy point), the girls in that reactionary group have failed to develop the essential, life-improving skill of critical thinking.

Despite nearing the end of their secondary education, they still have not understood the value of listening to the other side of the argument. Sadly, they remain tethered to the zeitgeist, perceiving themselves to be free whilst all the while blind to their captivity. If I were their parents, I’d be asking for my money back.

The girl who has been hounded out is reported to be ‘unusually free-thinking and questioning’. I was unexpectedly moved by that description. Isn’t this exactly what we want to cultivate in our young people?

The school should be rolling out the red carpet for this independent thinker, welcoming her back with open arms, and making her Head Girl. Not only did she have the courage to challenge trans orthodoxy, but she was the only one. Furthermore, she demonstrated an understanding of the complexity of the issue and what was at stake.

‘Coming out’, or declaring one’s sexuality, is apparently considered brave. Here, though, in the actions of this solitary girl, is real bravery. The response of her peers was evidence enough that speaking out required courage.

Where was her safe space? Well, the library, initially, to protect her from the mob. Ultimately, though the school failed to protect her and she had to leave. Incredibly, the Head of Sixth Form apologised to the other girls involved for not having provided a safe space for them. What a terrible inversion.

I’d like to know, finally, where the adults were in all of this? It is clear from the reports that the teachers knew that the girl had done nothing wrong. The Head of Sixth Form provided support to her at first but then, ‘after sustained pressure from the group . . . changed her position’.

Maybe she too had imbibed a touch of Marxist ideology, with the notion that pupils teach the teachers and not the other way round. Either way, her yielding to the bullies was cowardice.

If we were embattled before, this story serves to highlight the precariousness of our situation. We should be concerned that hitherto bastions of feminism and educational excellence have fallen to queer theory.

I am encouraged, however, that the story has been reported by a number of publications, with the school’s failure consistently highlighted. I believe that the tide is turning thanks to other truly brave women such as J K Rowling, Maya Forstater and Sharron Davies who consistently take a stand.

Sadly, there will be casualties along the way (lone schoolgirls being particularly vulnerable), but we adults must continue to fight, however battle-weary we may be.

Clearly, there is a massively poor quality education in that school if a single opinion contrary to the (contrived/brainwashed) majority isn’t permitted – on any subject.  Oh and, I’m wondering if it’s still worth asking the question:  where is the Church in all this – i.e. those ordained and unmarried to leave them free to speak out on such issues in defence of the Faith and Moral Law. Those like the Pope and Bishops with easy access to media outlets, with global audiences readily available to them. Where are they? What the blankety blank are they doing apart from blethering on about soft topics, such as refugees?

Your thoughts.

    That was outrageous but so is this – a father takes a teacher to task for making his son wear a dress. She does the usual, diversionary tactic (don’t raise your voice, don’t speak to me in that tone) because she’s obviously taken aback at meeting a parent who is fighting back.

      If only more parents would do this.

      That really is outrageous, dressing that boy in a girl’s dress – how dare anyone do that!

      Yes, let’s hope and pray that more parents challenge anyone who does this.

    This is another one – it’s the same case but a young man commenting on it.

    The talking with these Reprobates who are Perverting Our Children is over. They won’t dialogue with anyone except Satan.
    None of us profess to be Saints but this is a Bridge to Far . And Sturgeon and Wee Harvie are every bit as bad as that supposed Teacher.
    Also I read the Above about a Normal Girl just speaking what used to be Normal talk. Their are only 2 Genders and one need Not be Religious to know that .
    No wonder Putin doesn’t want anything to do with the West.

      Sturgeon is so lacking in the traits we have always associated with Scots – one, being “canny” (i.e. careful). Someone with a real Scottish character would never have rushed into this sick ideology, especially not for four year olds! It is just more evidence of how out of touch she is with the Scottish people – and biological reality.

    This is the sort of incident that will hopefully wake up more parents (call me a dreamer)….. but I doubt there will be a parallel awakening among the ranks of the Novus Ordo clergy (esp. the hierarchy). They are having too much fun profiting in one way or another from the storm to cry out “Lord, save us, we perish!”

    I didn’t see an attribution for this article, but the author might want to reconsider this statement:

    “The girl who has been hounded out is reported to be ‘unusually free-thinking and questioning’. I was unexpectedly moved by that description. Isn’t this exactly what we want to cultivate in our young people?”

    Well, no, it’s not. Free thinkers have been in the forefront of efforts to destroy the Church since before the French Revolution. Does the name “Voltaire” ring a bell? As for “questioning,” perhaps the author has forgotten what the “Q” stands for in “LGBTQWHATEVER.”

      RCA Victor,

      OK – you’re a dreamer, LOL!

      I hadn’t thought of “freethinker” like that – your last paragraph is very thoughtful.

      As for LGBTQWHATEVER – love it!

      RCA Victor,

      Your point about “Free thinkers” is well taken, but, on the other hand, especially in these confused times, we do need people who can think “freely” in the sense that they can think critically, objectively, refusing to accept every novelty, the latest immorality dressed up as a “right”, if you get my drift.

      Dare I say it, but I think the example you give, of the French Revolution or any other kind of revolution, is to distort, somewhat, the essential concept of “free thinking”. Rebels are rebels, and there will always be malcontents who want to overthrow the Government. I wish we had some in Scotland – I’d love to introduce them to scheming Sturgeon…

      The fact is, if that student hadn’t been able to think for herself (even without any solid religious/Catholic background) and conclude that the whole transgender nonsense is just that, nonsense, she’d have been quietly brainwashed with her peers.

      Let’s face it, you don’t really need to be a free thinker to recognise the nonsense that goes by the silly name of “transgenderism” – you just need to have a little (average) intelligence-through-to-low-intelligence and the ability to get your tongue moving. It seems “courage” is also required these days to state the obvious, which is, in fact, all that the above student did, so maybe I’ve wasted a lot of time writing about free thinking when I probably really meant free speech.

      What am I like? (Strictly rhetorical)…

        I take your point, I simply thought the use of the term “freethinker” was unfortunate, given its anti-Catholic history. “Clear thinker” would have stopped me from complaining so much….

        Ouch! Game, set and match! Well said; I’m humbled or, to put it another way, totally humiliated 😀

    Again as we say your spot on Victor . If we have to wait for Bergoglio and His Lavender Buddies to come out and say anything about the ALPHEBET mob ,and they are a Mob am sure Hell has a better chance of freezing over first, or for Nancy Pelosi to admit that Shes wrong. I personally dont know where we as a so called Civilised Society go from here. I mean is their really any lower Morally we can actually go . As i said in my first comment its no wonder Putin wants nothing to do with the West . O just a snippet here . Am sure that most if not all on here have no Love or respect for the Hero of the West Mr Zelensky . What a different report on the news on The Ukraine War when you read R.T. News . Now am not saying that they are any better than the rotten BBC, but as a different perspective on the Mariupol siege .They said that when they freed Mariupol the Ukraine People wanted to kill the Nazi Soldiers holding them to ransom . True or False . Or as an IRA man once said . It Depends on whos Vote your trying to catch . Well at least it did when Votes were counted .

      We’ve yet to get to the level of legalising (a) paedophilia (they’re working on it) and (b) bestiality (they’re also working on it – using the same arguments employed in the LGBT+ rights campaign).

    This is really hard to believe. Michelle Obama has changed “woman” to “womxn” – this really is a mental illness.

      Margaret Mary,

      That’s very interesting, when you consider that “Michelle” Obama is a man,,,or was that “manx”?

        Nice One Victor am sure though that Mixxlex Obama wouldnt have enjoyed reading it . Its a bad day when a Woman cannot even say Shes a Woman. Of course in Michael Obamas case that would be a Lie anyhow .

    Perhaps the most shocking part of this incident was how the brave young girl’s peer turned on her en masse.

    You expect modern teachers to be guilty of promoting rot, but I had thought surely young minds would still be curious and still inclined to rebel?

    Seemingly not – seemingly teens today are conformist sheep.

    Without Christ in their lives, It is very noticeable how secular people lack the ability to think for themselves and just parrot any rubbish, usually preferring to be “one of the crowd” rather than a dissenting voice. Group affirmation is more important than objective right or wrong.

    If the girl has left the school, then she is well out of it and can do better elsewhere.

      Gabriel Syme,

      Yes, that struck me right away – that her peers had been so brainwashed, already in their young lives. Beggars belief. If this can happen to sixth formers at a supposedly top private school, just imagine the result in our primary and secondary schools. The kids don’t stand a chance, with trusting parents and woke teachers. And even if the teacher him or herself isn’t “woke”, they’re being forced to pass on the woke dynamite. Terrible time to be in education, whether as a pupil or a teacher.
