MR JOHN USHERWOOD DUNCAN LYBURN — DR VICTORIA ANNE WAKEFIELD LAWSON The engagement is announced between John Lyburn, son of Mr and Mrs Bruce J. D. Lyburn, of Over Bow, Forfar, Angus, and Victoria Lawson, elder daughter of Dr and Mrs Peter G. Lawson, of Glenbrook, Bailliesmills, Co. Down. Waiton of Abertay University (The Courier, November 13).
The councillor states that Dr Waiton is warning about something that will not happen because “clinical decisions will continue to be made by medical professionals within the NHS”.
And yet this is precisely what the Scottish Government is proposing – that people will simply, by filling out a form, without assessment or help from any medical professionals, be able to change their gender.
Furthermore, it has come to light that the Scottish Government has sent out guidance to all schools (including primary) that parents should not be informed if a child wishes to change their gender.
A teacher cannot put suntan cream on a child without permission from the child but they can help them ‘change’ their gender – without telling the parents.
This is the level of insanity that our government is going to in their pursuit of their Brave New World.
I suspect the good people of Dundee will fervently hope that it is not the direction that Dundee City Council will be pushing its schools.
To tell primary school children that they can change their gender is appallingly ignorant, to encourage them to do so is quite simply statesponsored child abuse.
There is a growing body of evidence which shows the harm that this abuse causes.
Parents need to be aware and be warned. We need to stand up for our children before it becomes a crime to do so.
