30,000 sign petition against gender diversity teaching in New Zealand


More than 30,000 people in New Zealand have signed a parliamentary petition against teaching gender diversity in the country’s schools. ‘I believe that endorsing gender discordance as normal via public education and legal policies will confuse children and parents’ the petition’s author, Helen Houghton, wrote on the parliament’s website. In 2015, New Zealand introduced sexual education guidelines including gender diversity. The government released an inclusive education guide for supporting LGBTI in 2017. The ‘Stop transgender teaching in New Zealand schools’ parliamentary petition garnered 33,556 signatures as of Thursday (28 February) morning.
