Pauline Hanson, the leader of Australia’s One Nation party, has called for an inquiry into the gender reassignment treatment of Australian children and voiced her opposition to gender identity ideology being taught in schools.
The Gender Madness Debate
In a fiery address to Parliament, Senator Hanson demanded that authority figures “leave the children alone” and criticized what she referred to as “gender madness.”
Her comments sparked a heated debate on the politicization of Trans and gender-diverse children’s healthcare.
She Spoke About the Influence of LGBTQ+ Ideology
Senator Hanson expressed her concerns about the influence of gender identity ideology on young minds, stating, “Keep your LGBTQ to yourselves behind your own bloody closed doors. Leave the children alone!”
“The Situation Is Disgusting”
She described the current situation as disgusting and argued that discussions about gender should take place within the privacy of homes, rather than being pushed onto innocent children.
Prominent Figure Criticized the Comments
Anna Brown, CEO of Equality Australia, criticized Senator Hanson’s motion as “one-sided and misleading.”
Brown argued that the politicization of Trans and gender-diverse children’s healthcare negatively affects the already vulnerable population’s health and well-being.
Gender-Affirming Care Is Vital
The CEO emphasized the importance of access to gender-affirming care, which has been shown to save lives among transgender and non-binary youth.
Gender Identity Should Not Be a Political Debate
Brown also stressed that decisions about gender identity should be left to young people, their parents, and the medical professionals treating them, rather than becoming a topic of political debate.
The Senator Has Called for an Investigation
Senator Hanson specifically called for an investigation into whether Australian children were being rushed into gender reassignment treatment and whether doctors who expressed concerns were being silenced.
She Cited an Example
The suspension of Dr. Jillian Spencer, a senior staff psychiatrist at Queensland Children’s Hospital, following her questioning of the use of puberty blockers without appropriate mental health assessments, served as an example cited by Senator Hanson.
Should Australia Ban Puberty-Blocking Drugs?
She also raised the question of whether Australia should adopt a more cautious approach to prescribing puberty-blocking drugs
Referring to the practices of the United Kingdom and several European countries where their use has been limited.
Senator Hanson highlighted a ten-fold increase in Australian children enrolled in public adolescent gender clinics from 2014 to 2021, as revealed through a freedom of information request.
More Children Are Using Puberty Blockers
The data also indicated a more than 100-fold increase in children being prescribed puberty blockers.
“The Gender-Affirmation Ideology Is a Cult”
Senator Hanson went on to say, “This gender-affirmation ideology has all the hallmarks of a crazy cult – capturing impressionable minds, isolating them from their families, and ultimately destroying their lives.”
She added, “Mark my words. If the Labor, the Greens, and others in the Senate, deny this inquiry, those responsible will not escape accountability. History, and the Australian people, will condemn you.”
The Nation Is Not Caring About Children
Senator Hanson concluded by accusing the government of “not caring about the children of this nation.”
“Our Children Have Been Caught up in a Medical Scandal”
Several social media users expressed their thoughts on the incident.
One Twitter user wrote, “As one of the parents who met with you in the Federal Parliament you have me in tears of gratitude. Our children have been caught up in a medical scandal.”
Another user commented, “Bravo, and thank you, Pauline. Children deserve the utmost care and safeguarding. There must be an urgent inquiry into gender practices now!”
