School denies it encourages boys to wear dresses
A MELBOURNE school accused of controversial teachings has denied it told boys they could wear dresses and use female toilets.

A MELBOURNE school accused of controversial teachings has denied it told boys they could wear dresses and use female toilets.

Mother Cella White said she was going to pull her children out of Frankston High School, and claimed the school was teaching “dangerous” and “age inappropriate” content about gender dysphoria.

Frankston High School, like many in Victoria, is part of the Safe Schools Coalition, which was designed to promote acceptance and tolerance of diverse people, including the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community.

She also believed her child was told to refer to a transgender person by their requested pronoun.

“What is the benefit to my son? He’s got a learning disability, he’s struggling with his times tables, he doesn’t need to deal with this,” she told the Herald Sun.

Or your child lacks the ability? But I’m not exactly shocked to see a mother using her child’s learning disability as a shield for her own bigotry.
