Ireland: Catholic Schools group denounce plans to teach children transgenderism



The Catholic Primary Schools Management Association (CPSMA) is setting a precedent for standing for religious rights in opposing a reckless trans agenda that has gone too far in sexualizing children in schools and other public settings. Those who support this woke agenda distract attention from themselves by accusing anyone who opposes them of being “anti-trans,” “homophobic,” “transphobic,” etc. Yet not even every trans individual supports this approach. Opposition has everything to do with the widespread sexualizing of children and pushing “gender affirming care” that could have devastating effects on children who are  ill-equipped to make such decisions during their most turbulent years, or deal with their consequences.

Schools are meant for learning, not sexualizing and manipulating kids. Let’s hope more organizations are courageous enough to oppose this aggressive agenda.

“Irish Catholic schools group argues students shouldn’t be taught about transgenderism,” Irish Central, March 6, 2023:

The Catholic Primary Schools Management Association (CPSMA), which represents 89% of primary schools in Ireland, is challenging the views expressed by Children’s Minister Roderic O’Gorman, who recently told the Irish Independent that children should be taught more about what it means to be transgender.

The CPSMA reportedly issued a letter to O’Gorman and Ireland’s Minister for Education Norma Foley in late January.

According to the Irish Independent, the CPSMA said in its letter that teaching primary children “what it means to be transgender would require to teach something about which there is neither a scientific nor social consensus to highly impressionable young children.”

It would be “counterproductive, generating unnecessary divisions in school communities where none now exist,” the group said, adding that “more seriously, it might add to a growing psychological contagion amongst young and vulnerable children.”

The group added: “We believe a more prudent and sensible policy is to teach children to respect every human being and to allow children to be children.

“We should not prematurely introduce children to complex and sensitive topics around which there is no scientific or medical consensus.”

The CPSMA argued that there “is no scientific consensus on the cause [or causes] of gender dysphoria and there is currently an intense international debate on the appropriate treatment of children with gender dysphoria.

“For example, the affirmative care model has recently been rejected in Sweden, Finland, the Netherlands, and the UK.

“Secondly, there is mounting evidence of psychological contagion. In the UK the numbers of children referred to the Gender Identity Development Service (GIDS) rose from 50 a year in 2009 to 25,000 in 2020…..
