Australian One Nation politician Mark Latham has unveiled a series of new anti-transgender policy pledges. Latham was once the leader of Australia’s centre-left Labor Party, but is now a member of the nationalist One Nation party, which he leads in New South Wales. Ahead of state elections in March, Latham has focused on transgender children, pledging to support a ban on them transitioning at school without permission from a doctor. In a January 20 policy announcement, Latham claimed: “One of the problems with gender fluidity in schools is that students can participate in it simply by ‘identifying’ as transgender. “This leaves the system open to abuse, with some students milking transgender identification for special treatment or attention-seeking reasons.” The politician added: “This problem is increasingly common in NSW high schools, urged on by Left-wing political activists.
