It is blindingly obvious yet needs repetition: the government does not have any money of its own. It has our money. It is equally obvious the establishment is using our money to further a transgender agenda.
One taxpayer supported scheme is MORF, a Manchester-based support group for transgender masculine people, that is females who wish to be males. Since February 2011, MORF has been distributing free breast binders to females who wish to be males.
MORF is backed by the LGBT Foundation which in 2016-17 received more than £1.1 million from central and local government and the NHS, and £180,000 in lottery funding.
Aided by our money, MORF sends breast binders to schoolgirls as young as 13 without their parents’ knowledge. Breast binders are used by young girls to disguise their breasts to make them look like boys.
Given the transgender dysphoria trend encouraged by a media who vigorously support the ‘gender affirmative’ movement, it is no surprise that an increasing number of young girls are requesting breast binders.
To watch television in the UK it is necessary, under threat of fine or imprisonment, to purchase an annual TV licence costing £150.50. The money raised goes solely to the BBC. This gives the BBC nearly £4 billion to play with every year. We can rest assured they use this in more innovative ways than screening endless repeats.
The BBC have an agenda which is reflected in its programmes and actions. The amount of pro-transgender propaganda produced by the BBC is so great it would be wearying to list it all.
A typical example was screened on CBBC, a channel aimed at children aged six to 12. In November 2014 CBBC produced the TV series My Life: I am Leo. Leo, aged 13, ‘always knew I was really a boy’ because girls wear dresses and have long hair, whereas boys wear different things and have short hair. The documentary has been repeated several times since it first aired.
The clearest message CBBC sends to children is that if you feel in any way ‘different’ to other kids of your sex, you are probably trans. The programme offers scant evidence to show other options for children who feel ‘different’ from others of their sex. Boys who like dancing or are particular about their clothing, girls who play rough games and like cars can be left questioning their sexual identity.
Research shows approximately 80 per cent of gender non-conforming children will grow out of this before puberty. My Life: I am Leo relies on crude gender stereotypes that somehow ‘prove’ that they are transgender. The harms of transitioning are minimised and the ideology of being ‘born in the wrong body’, which has no basis in science, is promoted.
The BBC’s Children in Need raises more money for charity than any other British event. The money is distributed amongst different projects chosen by the BBC. Last year £1,069,463 went to specifically transgender supporting groups, and £1,5223,721 to general LGBT groups.
As well as producing programmes supporting the trans agenda the BBC capitalise on the natural generosity of the British people to push significant amounts of money into the transgender agenda to alter public consciousness.
Allsorts Youth Project is supported to the tune of £74,541. This project’s Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkit states: ‘Pupils and students have the right to access the toilet that corresponds to their gender identity’ and ‘no pupil or student should be required to use [single stall toilets]’. This totally disregards the need for female students to have access to single sex facilities in school.
Yet in September 2015, a BBC investigation using FOI requests revealed that UK schools saw 5,500 sexual offences recorded between 2011 and 2014. Among these were nearly 4,000 alleged physical sexual assaults and more than 600 rapes. Some of the victims were as young as six years old.
In a Parliamentary debate Labour MP John Mann described an ‘epidemic of abusive sexual photographs of girls being circulated on a daily basis around schools’ and suggested ‘schools and teachers have no idea what to do about the problem’. It is into this atmosphere that the publicly funded BBC are supporting the ‘right’ of boys who identify as girls to use the girls’ toilets.
Educate and Celebrate trains schools on becoming LGBT+ friendly. They provide resources that introduce the idea to very young children that they may need to medically alter their bodies to ‘match’ their personalities. Educate and Celebrate received £122,348 from BBC’s Children in Need.
The BBC has a responsibility to dispassionately report the full breadth and scope of the transgender issue, giving full air time to those opposed to the current trend as well as those who support it. Instead the BBC promotes the trans agenda to children.
Why is the BBC complicit in this one-sided representation of transgender children? Why is there no discussion of the reality of medical transition and the impacts this will have on young people? The real discussions are not taking place in the BBC.
Perhaps this bias comes from the fact that 2 per cent of BBC employees are transgender themselves – more than four times the national average. LGBT staff make up 11 per cent of the BBC’s work force and 12 per cent of senior staff. In the 2016 census 2 per cent of the UK population identified as lesbian, gay or bisexual. We are all paying to promote their agenda.
