Parents have expressed outrage over a primary school inclusion lesson video depicting the story of a male teddy bear who believes he was born in the wrong body. The Mail has the story.
Schoolchildren are being ‘indoctrinated’ into thinking miserable boys who may be questioning their gender may be happier if they transition to become girls, a promotional video of a primary school inclusion lesson reveals.
Teachers at hundreds of primary schools across the U.K. are sharing ‘nonsense’ from lesson plans created by controversial inclusion group No Outsiders.
The group, run by teacher Andrew Moffat, sells £20 teaching guides for babies and children aged “from birth to 11 years old” that “present gender ideology as fact”. …
Now, a recording has emerged of a teacher at Prae Wood Primary School, St Albans, taking a No Outsider lesson where she reads aloud a book to her class of ten year-olds, explaining how an unhappy boy teddy called Thomas becomes happy when he transforms into a girl teddy called Tilly.
The teacher reads the children a section from the book called Introducing Teddy – a conversation between a male teddy bear called Thomas, who feels he was born in the wrong body, and his best friend Errol.
The story said: “Thomas the teddy took a deep breath. ‘I need to be myself, Errol. In my heart, I’ve always known that I’m a girl teddy, not a boy teddy. I wish my name was Tilly, not Thomas.’
‘Is that why you’ve been so sad?’ Errol asked.”
The book is one of many used as part of No Outsiders’ inclusive teaching guide.
In one of the guides, No Outsiders boss Andrew Moffat wrote: “This teaching must begin in primary schools. We are all intersectional; one identity does not suffice to make up who we are.
“Children must be encouraged, and indeed taught, to explore identity and develop confidence in who they are as they navigate childhood and adolescence.” …
He also said: “I will teach children to explore and celebrate their own identities (not the plural – our intersectionality allows us to hold more than one identity).”
A mother-of-one who spoke to MailOnline said her daughter was 11 when her Year Six teacher at Hillcrest Primary School, Bristol, read the book to the class.
She accused teachers of blurring the line between sex and gender.
She said: “My daughter told me when she had a No Outsiders day with guest visitors and a lesson where they read the Teddy book.
“It’s a dangerous message to send children who might be struggling.
“My child has ADHD. Here is a book telling them if they are unhappy maybe they are in the wrong body.
“It’s an extremely attractive idea to children we know are quite vulnerable. …
“It’s extremely misleading and confusing for a 10 year-old. It’s such a lot of regressive stereotypes in terms of what makes a boy and girl.”
The mother said her daughter’s teacher was a six-foot man with a beard who identified as a woman.
