Read what some of our members have to say about why they got involved with Safe Schools Alliance.
“I am a high school teacher and have seen, first hand, the damaging effect that gender ideology is having in schools. It scares me that pupils who present as trans are not given full and proper psychological evaluation before being allowed — and even encouraged — to embark upon social and medical transition. I am terrified that in their eagerness to ‘validate’ and ‘affirm’ a child’s trans identity, schools risk missing underlying issues such as abuse, trauma or other serious mental health issues… Read moreSecondary School Teacher, 27, Lancashire
“I had a new friendship group of bisexual and lesbian girls, and we loved Genderfork for celebrating the gender non conforming…we absorbed the information like a sponge.

“We have no long term evidence that rushing to transition children helps, and there’s mounting evidence that children are misdiagnosed and spend adulthood desperately unhappy. Girls in particular are being encouraged to bind their breasts at puberty which as we know with breast ironing can be seriously damaging. Hormones are irreversible and I think giving them to any young person whose brain isn’t fully developed is misguided to say the least… Read moreMother, 46, West Yorkshire
“My kids were raised to question gender stereotypes and be happy with who they were. None showed any gender dysphoria at a young age but due to the powerful social contagion that the trans movement utilises to convert new foot soldiers and members — two of my children have been sucked in… Read moreLawyer and Mother, 45, Gloucestershire
