In the UK, the anti-Stonewall list continues to grow. You can now add the House of Lords to the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), the Cabinet Office, the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (OFSTED), the Media Regulation Authority (OFCOM) and the national broadcaster BBC.
The upper house of the British parliament has torpedoed Stonewall–an organization active in schools, universities, companies and public bodies–which works to increasingly expand the spaces of gender ideology imposed by LGBT+ orthodoxy.
Notably, just like officials from the other appointed bodies, it also canceled their membership in the Diversity Champions program; designed to help companies become more “inclusive” and “[…] to ensure that all LGBT+ staff are accepted without exception in the workplace.” It is the workhorse and the spearhead of the organization, which especially advocates the adoption of a so-called “inclusive” language (in reality, it is a an act of violence towards those who do not conform to the imposed diktats).
The first signs of resistance to such LGBT+ diktats among the Lords of the Crown came early last year when in the context of a bill related to ministers’ maternity leave, the initial wording “pregnant persons” instead of “mothers” was changed.
With respect to the contract termination, a spokesperson said the decision followed an evaluation of the “costs and benefits of the program”, adding that it was taken after consultation with equality networks already active in parliament, and that the House of Lords “remains firmly committed to providing a more inclusive workplace for our LGBT+ colleagues,” who of course deserve every respect of personhood, but on a par with everyone else.
It seems that the media reported that parliamentary colleagues pressured the Speaker of the Upper House, Lord John Francis McFall, because he disagreed with Stonewall’s attempt to impose its language on Westminster as it does in UK hospitals, and as it did in the EHRC, the BBC and elsewhere. In particular, there was widespread disagreement with the suggestion to replace the word “mother” with “birthing parent” to refer to women who have transitioned and now claim to be men.
At any latitude, apparently and thankfully, mom is still mom in the United Kingdom.
