The Victorian government has introduced a new anti-bullying framework – Safe Schools. While on the outside, this framework promises to encourage “safe, supportive and respectful school communities”, it doesn’t take long to realize that this program is solely dedicated to supporting schools to be “safer and more inclusive” for same sex attracted, intersex and gender diverse young people.
It doesn’t just stop there, it encourages children to explore their sexuality and then make the decision themselves on what gender they are, as well as their sexual orientation. A dangerous can of worms which can lead a number of children astray.
The framework has already been adopted across hundreds of schools within Victoria. Schools all over the nation and in WA are also being encouraged to follow its principles. This is another reason to consider that your vote at the next state election does not go to a party that supports this program and to ensure that we aren’t lead down the same pathway as Victoria.
