Australian parents fighting the State in Court to regain custody of their teenage daughter. Two years ago police showed up at their home and took their 15 year old daughter away with no explanation and no warning. They have had no contact since. 1/…
@Bernard_Lane first broke this story in November 2020. 2/…
Lane covers this Australian first legal challenge brought by the parents, who have been accused of "emotional abuse", and lost their young daughter to the State when they urged caution and objected to experimental testosterone injections. 3/…
Their daughter was taken by police to Perth Children's Hospital where they were denied any access. The parents were coerced by authorities into signing a consent for their daughter to be administered wrong sex hormones and a bilateral mastectomy under threat that she...4/
would "kill herself". Despite no previous dealings with authorities, the engineer and university lecturer were immediately deemed "abusive" parents. Their child had found "furry art" & anime communities on line after having difficulty making friends after moving. 5/
The parents said this attracted attention from strangers who began messaging her online, this lead to grooming to estrange her from her parents, and how to lie to obtain medical interventions. 6/
The teaching of gender identity ideology is prevalent in many Australian schools under the guise of sexuality and gender diverse education. Publicly funded bodies such as charities Minus18 and ACON provide information to children 7/
on how to access medical interventions such as puberty blockers, wrong sex hormones and surgery, including how to do so without parental knowledge or consent, provide signposting to free legal advice (also publicly funded). 8/…
It is terrifying that a distressed Australian child can be removed from a loving home by the police and taken into State custody. Once the "gender identity" process is triggered, carefully and stealthily laid policies cast the parents as abusers, destroying families...9/
and grooming the child into gender identity ideology with the result of irreversible and experimental medical interventions, including surgery. Policies are in place in law, education and social services to facilitate this happening. The law is no longer on the side of...10/
families, parents and the children themselves. Safeguards put into place after decades of learnings from scandals and failures by the system have been dismantled in furtherance of this ideology. Our children are no longer safe. 11/
Where is the public on this? Where is the mainstream media? Where are our commercial TV stations? Where are all the journalists who would usually be raising hell about such a scandal? What is it going to take for our community to wake up? 12/

TAS MPs Ella Haddad MP & Jane Howlett Minister for Women, & Sport & Rec utterly betray women by giving not a moment's thought to women & girls forced to accommodate men & boys in their sports.…
@EllaHaddadMP takes the opportunity to completely mischaracterise & target Tasmanian Federal Senator, Claire Chandler, the one politician brave enough to speak publicly & on the record, about this destruction of women's rights.
Where is the inclusion, fairness & safety for women & girls in their very own sports? I ask @janehowlettmp if she has spoken to the women & girls affected, or any of the groups that represent them? @SWS_australasia

Whistleblower at Aus. Breastfeeding Association: “We do not consent to provide that support. We are experts in mother-to-mother breastfeeding we have no skills in assisting in affirming men in their experimental attempts to breastfeed”…
'I have experienced men ringing the helpline and wanting to have inappropriate sexualised conversations about breasts and have always, until now, felt supported by the organisation to immediately discontinue those phone calls and report them.' @OzBreastfeeding
'Those expressing concerns have been silenced rather than the ABA trying to accommodate the volunteers,'

“Australia’s Stonewall Scam”

ACON is substantially funded by NSW government - AUD$11M directly from Minister for Health and $3M from other government grants, out of an annual budget of $20M.

Brought to you by Australia’s Coalition for Biological Reality @BiologicalReal1
They clearly state their model is based on Stonewall UK.

Organisations pay to be members of Pride in Diversity and Pride in Sport Indexes where they are assessed on criteria determined by Pride.
Our taxpayer funded public broadcasters, @ABCaustralia and @SBS are fully paid up members. Could explain why neither have covered the Bell-Tavistock case, and barely mention any criticism of gender ideology except in a wholly negative light.

A thread of harassment, silencing & assault of women: Associate Professor Dr. Holly Lawford-Smith of Uni. of Melbourne launched a website to collate the stories of women impacted by gender identity laws & policies, because our govt. is failing to do so
Another fellow academic at the Uni wrote an open letter denouncing HLS, calling for her to be removed from teaching a Feminist course that she designed and is wholly qualified to give (being a radical feminist and a Lesbian!)…
University of Melbourne responded, as far as I am aware they have said nothing further, even though TRAs came into HLS’s office area and papered the space with pro-TRA flags and slogans. Image
