- Parents and former teachers spoke out at an LGB Alliance conference in London
UK children are becoming confused after being constantly quizzed by teachers over gender confusion and punishing them if they ‘accidentally misgender’ people, it has been claimed.
One parent from Brighton claimed a young woman thought she was a boy at school because teachers questioned pupils at least once a term to ask if they were confused about their gender.
Another parent at the talk held by the gay and lesbian rights charity said an 11-year-old girl questioning their own gender was sent to an ‘unqualified male’ who helped her buy a ‘penis packer’ so she could try living as a boy.
Kate Barker Managing Director of LGB Alliance said the delay in government guidance has allowed activists to introduce ideology at schools

The same parents also said activist teachers had written to the head teacher at a school to say they would go against the head’s instructions not to use a child’s preferred pronouns, The Telegraph reported.
In another example, a teacher at a Brighton school told pupils she was non-binary and didn’t need to wear sanitary protection.
Instead, the teacher wears white, very tight linen clothes when she menstruates. This means the blood shows through in order to generate a ‘conversation with the kids’.
Also, a parent who runs PSHE Brighton, a campaign group for families worried about sex education in schools, said Year 7s were given punishments ‘two years in a row’ for misgendering a teacher in the first three days at school.
She said: ‘We’ve had Year 7s who are innocently going ‘Yes miss, I’ll do that’.
‘Bang, they are in what’s called a non-detention – like lockdown, something like that where they lock them up after school.
According to the accounts, some children were punished for ‘accidentally misgendering’ a teacher
‘Two years in a row the Year 7s have been given this punishment for misgendering this teacher in their first three days at school.’
The government has promised guidance on trans issues since 2018 and is expected to publish it by the end of the year – after missing its own deadline at the end of the summer term.
Kate Barker, chief executive of the LGB Alliance, said: ‘Teachers and parents have been waiting six years for schools’ trans guidance.
‘This delay has been exploited by gender identity activist organisations to introduce unscientific, unevidenced, and over-sexualised teaching resources into schools.’
A government spokesman said: ‘We’ve been repeatedly clear about the importance of biological sex and that contested views should not be taught as fact.
‘Schools and colleges must uphold public trust and are expected to maintain high standards of ethics and behaviour both within and outside of school and colleges.’
