UK: Teachers should no longer say ‘boy’ and ‘girl’

A British LGBT organization urged teachers to stop using the words "boy" and "girl". In addition, the organization that fights for the rights of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transsexuals (LGBT) is urging schools to give children the option of both school uniforms – both skirts and pants.

    Instead, teachers should say “learners,” according to guidelines reported by the Daily Telegraph. The organization, Stonewall, received funding from the government last year for programs against “homophobic, biphobic and transphobic” behaviour in schools. From 2015 to 2019, the organization received almost three million pounds in funding from various government funding pots. In addition, many large companies pay Stonewall generous amounts of money to participate in “diversity” programs.

    Joint physical education classes for boys and girls

    The organization recommended further measures to be taken in the guidelines for teachers. For example, children should attend the same physical education class regardless of their “gender” and be able to use changing rooms and showers according to their preferences. Stonewall also said that elementary school children should learn to use their “preferred pronoun” – in English, “he/him” or “she/her” or for transgender people “they /them”. Teachers should teach children to use the pronouns “they/them”.

    Stonewall has established a School and College Champion Program consisting of hundreds of participating schools. A three-digit amount is payable for this and enables adherents to take part in competitions for particularly LGBT-friendly schools.

    The conservative Safe School Alliance UK has criticized the recommendation to teach children of both sexes in a joint physical education class and to let boys compete against girls. It continued to call for separate physical education classes for safety and fairness reasons.

    Recently, Stonewall caused a stir by demanding that the word “mother” be abandoned for the person who has children.

    Ministers criticize Stonewall

    Stonewall was founded in 1989 to lobby for gay and lesbian rights. In the past few years, the association has shifted its focus more and more to transgender issues. This has led to a partial split in the gay and lesbian movement.

    Some gays and lesbians find that the organization is neglecting its traditional role and shifting unilaterally to trans-lobbyism.

    More recently, several key ministers in Boris Johnson’s cabinet, including Secretary of State for Women and Equality, Liz Truss, have spoken out against Stonewall. Government agencies should no longer participate in and pay for Stonewall’s controversial Diversity Champion program, she said. Truss accused them of becoming “extremist”.

    The former head of the NHS health service, Kate Grimes, who had supported Stonewall as a lesbian, recently accused the organization of being “no longer compatible” with NHS values.

    Stonewall threatens safety in the NHS by advocating shared changing rooms and showers for men and women, trans men and trans women. In addition, these Stonewall pressures endangers freedom of expression and free debate on these issues. Incidentally, the number of young people seeking gender transition is at the highest it has ever been due to the advocacy from other organizations too, such as Human Rights Watch.

    In New Zealand, where Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II is still the country’s official head of state, the National Olympic Committee (NZOC) meanwhile nominated transgender athlete Laurel Hubbard for the Tokyo Games this week. The weightlifter – who still looks like a man – competes in the class up to 87 kilograms and is the first transgender athlete at the Olympics, reported the Reuters news agency.

    “We have a strong culture of respect and inclusion. We are committed to supporting all eligible athletes,” said the NZOC.

    Criticism from opponents, coaches and spectators

    Hubbard’s participation in women’s competitions has caused displeasure among opponents, coaches and spectators. He, as a trans woman, is accused of having an unfair advantage because as a man, Hubbard had never competed in international competitions.

    According to a guideline introduced by the International Olympic Committee in 2015, a trans woman must declare that her gender identity is female. This cannot be changed for four years. In addition, the athlete must prove that her testosterone level has been below a certain threshold for a period of at least twelve months.

    Belgian weightlifter Anna Vanbellinghen, who competes in the same weight class as Hubbard, recently called the New Zealander’s nomination a “bad joke”. The situation is “unfair to the sport and the athletes” she said. Vanbellinghen, 27, pointed out that the retained benefit of taking steroids, even years earlier, is widely known. “So why is it still a question whether two decades, from puberty to the age of 35, the hormonal system of a man also gives an advantage [in competing against women]?”

    DESTRUCTIVE HAILSTORMS will become more frequent and violent with increasingly larger hail, predicted solar researcher Valentina Zharkova back in 2019 when she stated that it's one of many signs of an impending Grand Solar Minimum. This is exactly what we have witnessed this year in both Europe and the world. Here is the German town of Benediktbeuern in Bavaria after a hailstorm on August 26th. Almost all rooftops and cars were damaged. The centuries-old church and monastery were damaged for the first time ever. Interestingly, the monastery was rebuilt in 1699 during the Maunder Minimum. Combined with heavy rainfall, extreme weather will devastate a significant portion of our food production. For instance, heavy rainfall destroyed a quarter of all crops in Greece in just two days in September. However, mainstream media remains silent. Photo: X @safe0007/Sandor Feher

    NOAA Predicts Zero Sunspots for Almost the Whole 2030s

    CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.

    NATIONALIST COLLABORATION TAKES SHAPE. Six parties met in Budapest on August 26th to sign a joint declaration confirming the friendship and political unity among the parties. The goal is to either form a new group in the European Parliament after the EU elections in June next year or to reconstitute the existing Identity and Democracy (ID) group with the new parties.

    European Nationalist Parties Forge Cooperation Ahead of EU Elections

    EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.

    Turkey Believes Sweden Hasn’t Done Enough

    Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.

    Swedish Weapon Takes Down Russia’s Best Attack Helicopter

    The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.

    The Sun Drives Earth’s Climate, Not Carbon Dioxide

    Top Researchers Push Back Against Climate Lies."The correlation is as clear as day," explained the Israeli astrophysicist Nir Shaviv, who was hailed by the establishment, before his interview with Forbes was hastily deleted. What he says contradicts the climate narrative, which points to humans as responsible for Earth's climate. Shaviv firmly asserts that it is the sun that controls the climate, something that can be scientifically proven in many ways. Contrary to the popular belief, the sun's influence on Earth has, in recent years, caused unusually cold and rainy weather, a trend that solar researchers warn will worsen significantly in the coming decades. The sun has exhibited an unusually low activity since 2016, during Solar Cycle 24, which was the weakest in a century.

    Alternative for Germany held its conference during the last weekend of July in the thousand-year-old city of Magdeburg, located by the Elbe River in the eastern German state of Saxony. The first of the two conference days began with a strong program speech by the party's male spokesperson. Subsequently, party officials were elected and motions were addressed. The second day was entirely devoted to candidate selection and positioning for the EU election in June next year. Screenshot: AfD on Facebook

    Strong Confidence in German AfD

    Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.

    Maximilian Krah is one of the AfD politicians who is singled out as an ethnonationalist, as he has stated that there is a distinction between ethnic Germans and immigrants who have obtained German citizenship. Krah is a Member of the European Parliament and AfD's top candidate for the upcoming European Union election next year. Still image: AfD on Facebook

    The Establishment Wants to Ban Germany’s Second Largest Party – for the Sake of Democracy

    The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

    FvD was quick to support the protests against covid restrictions. Today, the party also stands behind the farmers protests against the governments’ plans to close a big portion of the farms in the country for the sake of “climate”.

    The Ursula von der Leyen Affair

    After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.

    Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor

    Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
