Transgender lessons for two-year-olds: Drag queens drafted into nursery schools to teach children about sexual diversity

A piece published on the website of Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them), the political party of which I’m the chairman, in December 2017:

Our thank to Mike P for a piece on taxpayer-funded child abuse in the Daily Mail. Extracts:

Drag queens are being brought into taxpayer-funded nursery schools so that children as young as two can learn about transgender issues.

The cross-dressers are reading nursery rhymes and singing specially adapted songs ‘to teach children about LGBT tolerance’.

Nursery bosses say the sessions are needed so that children can ‘see people who defy rigid gender restrictions’ and grow up to combat hate crime.

They want to target two and three-year-olds to influence them early, as they say at this age children have not yet developed any discriminatory ‘isms’.

The ‘performances’ are the brainchild of Thomas Canham, a Bristol University law graduate and part-time cross-dresser who dismisses traditional notions of masculinity as ‘meaningless’…

Mr Canham’s organisation Drag Queen Story Time (DQST) is holding sessions at seven nurseries run by the London Early Years Foundation over the winter. If deemed successful, they will be rolled out across all the nursery’s 37 sites…

He [Donna La Mode] said he wanted to create a ‘safe space’ where adults or children would not be criticised for ‘wearing a dress’. His drag queens had ‘complete control’ over their performances, he added.

‘They can include, for example, drag queen references within songs. So if you’re doing something like Wheels On The Bus, you can sing, “The skirt on the drag queen goes swish, swish, swish.”

‘The parents love it, and the children love it too – especially when you’ve got a six-year-old boy there in a princess dress which he isn’t allowed to wear at home because his dad doesn’t like it.’

His drag queens also had ‘a library with books which focus on LGBT rights, feminist fairy tales [J4MB emphasis – who can possibly say this whole thing isn’t about social engineering?] and trans-rights issues,’ said Mr Canham, the son of a British Army soldier…

June O’Sullivan, chief executive of LEYF, said: ‘By providing spaces in which children are able to see people who defy rigid gender restrictions, it allows them to imagine the world in which people can present [themselves] as they wish.’

She told BBC London radio it was good to expose very young children to men who dress as women, ‘because children are very open until about three’. [J4MB emphasis]

‘At three they begin to absorb all the “isms” that adults have developed very effectively,’ she explained.

Brief details on June O’ Sullivan, CEO of LEYF, and the nine Trustees of LEYF are here. Seven of the nine Trustees are women.
