Teachers ! 📣📣📣Please be aware that BeLong To are potentially leaving you open to liability with their advice to allow adolescent boys to use the female toilet, changing room & even dorm should they identify as the opposite sex, because this breaches safeguarding rules.
In addition, their advice to preclude parents from all knowledge, consent or consultation regarding their child’s social transition at school breaches the rights of those parents under the 1998 Education Act & as enshrined in An Bunreacht. Please feel empowered to address these
& any other concerns you may have at a local level with your school regarding the recent pledge packs or indeed the indoctrination of junior infants upwards into highly-contested, controversial and harmful gender identity ideology. You are not being old-fashioned, conservative
and you are certainly not being transphobic or homophobic to question this ideology. It is not about tolerance or expression. It is about the breaking of boundaries without the consent of women & girls and the brainwashing of a young, captive cohort. Your instincts are right!
This is not okay! Please attend our upcoming webinar ( link in flyer on. pinned tweet) and subscribe to our YouTube channel to keep up to date with our work. #WeWillBeHeard

We have commissioned the the first-ever independent survey into attitudes to gender which has revealed widespread support among the Irish public for single-sex services and sports.1

#IrishGenderPoll #WeWillBeHeard
RedC questioned a representative sample of 1,001 adults on a range of gender-related issues.
It comes amid calls for a public debate over gender and sex based rights in the light of controversial decisions such as plans to roll out mixed-sex toilets in Irish secondary schools.2
MORE than three-quarters of respondents (77%) agreed that people should have the right to request that intimate medical examinations are carried out by a person of the same birth sex.
62% said public buildings such as schools and banks should have to provide single-sex toilets.3

The danger of trans identified male prisoners being housed in women’s prisons has been highlighted recently in the UK, with the Judicial Review Case brought by a female prisoner who claims she was sexually assaulted in Downview Prison by a trans identified male prisoner. 1/5
This prisoner had been convicted of very serious sexual offences against women yet was being held in the general population of the female estate with her in accordance with prison policy.
We have been watching this case closely because both women’s prisons in Ireland 2/5
have each housed trans identified male prisoners with a GRC – the women’s wing of Limerick Prison, which currently houses two convicted trans identified male sex offenders, and the Dóchas Women’s Centre within Mountjoy Prison. 3/5

IRELAND: Where young men assault young women with impunity. We had been hearing reports of gangs of boys throwing coffee/water over female joggers. Now this. This young woman could have been killed. These girls are being forced to run the gauntlet to access public transport. 1/
One gets spat on, one gets a high kick to the ribs & one gets thrown into the tiny gap between the train & the platform. Before we delve deeper, is it not the responsibility & indeed the whole purpose of the man in the high-viz vest, to make this platform safe for passengers../2
to embark the train?? The young man who pushed her in does not immediately run off, like his mates. He seems shocked. He is the one walking over, hands to head, peering over. Not the employee, who is frozen. All of this could have been prevented instead it was let play out.../3

This person, who has been convicted of a violent assault, will now be in female crime statistics and will be held in a women's prison.
They assaulted 3 different men, 1 man who was punched in the face

fell and hit his head off the path and suffered a bleed on the brain and a fractured skull.
We now have 3 transwomen held in women's prisons in Ireland.
Why does it matter if they are held in prison and a woman's prison?
Why does it matter if they are in the statistics as Female?
450 out of 678 Female offenders, (2019 statistics) the vast majority, are in prison for theft or government offences-for eg, not paying a fine.
Based on recent years committal rates in Irish prisons for violent and sexual crimes: 3 in 100,000 is the rate of

THREAD: How "Gender Identity" is taking precedence over sex in Ireland.

In Ireland we have Self I.D, a man can change his legal status, his SEX, by filling in an A4 form.
The Hate Crime Bill which is going through the Seanad Éireann at the moment lists "sex characteristics" rather than sex.
It doesn't provide an interpretation for "sex characteristics" yet it provides one for "transgender identity".

THREAD #motherandbabyhomesreport is an example of classic whitewash.
the techniques are widely known; narrow the scope & limit the enquiry. Used to great effect in Hillsborough, Bloody Sunday & Grenfell. So what appears to be an open, honest, legal, proper & well-meaning
effort is in fact a smokescreen for a concerted effort to above all else, protect the institutions involved. Our former Minister for Children, Catherine Zappone, it would appear, tried valiantly to do this properly. She oversaw the Tuam Babies excavation which confirmed that tiny
human remains were buried underground in a mass unmarked grave. She spoke of how difficult the process would be, politically, legally & technically to exhume all the bodies. She asked the pope during his visit if the religious orders would pay reparations. It would appear she did
