Attorney General: Schools Shouldn’t Give In To Translators By Addressing Them With Chosen Pronouns

Schools can’t give in to translating students by addressing them by their chosen pronouns or make them change uniforms, attorney general says

  • Suella Braverman said that since children under the age of 18 cannot legally change their sex, schools have the right to treat all children based on their gender of birth
  • She added that some schools seem to encourage gender dysphoria – when a person’s emotional and psychological identity is different from their physical form – by taking an ‘unconditional’ approach
  • The mother-of-two Tory minister also praised JK Rowling as ‘very brave’

Attorney General Suella Braverman said schools should not yield to students by addressing them by their chosen pronouns or allowing them to wear a school uniform of a different gender.

The Tory minister stated that as children under the age of 18 cannot legally change their gender, schools have the right to treat all children according to their gender of birth.

She told The Times: ‘Under 18s cannot get a gender recognition certificate, under 18s cannot legally change their gender.

“A male child who says at school that he is a trans girl, that he wants to be a woman, is still legally a boy or a man. And they can be treated as such under the law. And schools have the right to treat them as such under the law.”

They don’t have to say, ‘We’ll let you change your pronoun or let you wear a skirt or call yourself a maiden name.’ Likewise, if they say they are non-binary, they still legally and physically remain the gender they were born from.”

The Tory minister also said in an interview with The Times that the girls' toilets and changing rooms have special legal protections as safe areas - so boys born male are not allowed to use them.

Ms Braverman, a mother of two, added that some schools seem to encourage gender dysphoria — when a person’s emotional and psychological identity differs from their physical form — by taking an “unconditional” approach.

The 42-year-old also praised JK Rowling in her interview with The Times, calling her “very brave.”

Her support for the Harry Potter author comes in the wake of news that an 18-year-old girl was forced out of her private school by a mob who attacked her for questioning the “transideology” of a guest speaker.

The sixth-grade student in question thanked JK Rowling for her support after other students ‘made me think I was crazy’.

Meanwhile, ministers must demand that all new legislation refer specifically to ‘women’ and ‘mothers’ in an effort to stem the advance of ‘militant wake-up’ around gender-neutral language.

Earlier this week, the civil service was accused of “having a political agenda to obliterate women and the concept of biological sex” using non-specific terms.

The government would be concerned about language that women ‘knew’ from laws.

In a high-profile example last year, the NHS caused a riot by calling mothers-to-be ‘pregnant people’ so as not to upset trans parents.
