The Safe Schools Coalition is a group of organizations which promotes the acceptance of same sex attracted, intersex and gender diverse students. In 2016 the Turnbull government proposed cutting funding to the program and restricting it to secondary schools. Opponents of the program argue that parts of the group’s curriculum, including teaching 7 year olds to imagine they attracted to the same sex, are inappropriate. Proponents of the program, including the Green party, argue that between 1 and 2% of all students identify as gender diverse and the curriculum helps prevent bullying.
Safe schools should cover all forms of discrimination, body-ist, racist, etc as well as sexual choice. The information of sexual choice is also inaccurate overstating some cases 3 out of 4 transgender children grow out of it. Safe schools also encourages presently illegal behaviour and seeks to redefine 'normal'
Education and awareness are the keys to a successful life; however, just limiting education to freedom of gender orientation is limiting; as limiting as religious/feminist schools etc. Positive discrimination is as devisive as negative!
No, I think we should be taught to accept other people and there difference whether its religion, race, gender and who they are attracted but we don't need a safe schools coalition to achieve this as this should be taught at home or school.
Segregating children based on sexual preference is not going to solve the problem. Neither will protecting them from bullying. They need to be taught how to defend themselves, because no bully cares who or what you are, they only care about how to hurt you.
