If someone doesn’t know whether they are male or female they have my sympathy but it’s their problem, not mine nor that of the wider society.
They must come to terms with it within their own family or circle and not bother others.
A democracy governs by the will of the majority, not tiny numbers of assorted minorities, and laws which attempt, deliberately or not, to interfere with this principle, are bad laws.
A primary school on the Isle of Wight allows a six year old child sometimes to come to school dressed as a girl or sometimes come to school as a boy, which has rightly caused consternation to Nigel and Sally Rowe, a Christian family with children at the same school.
Some agitators have asked what has this got to do with being a Christian, where does the Bible say it is wrong to for boys to dress as girls and vice versa?
The answer is not straightforward, but we live in a country where our basic ethos – our legal system, our classical music, hospitals, monasteries, universities, scientific enlightenment, democracy and Magna Carta itself, are all due to the last fifteen hundred years of Christianity.
Whether individuals do or do not attend church regularly (apart from weddings, baptisms and funerals) is irrelevant.
Because of this we respect certain norms, we instinctively know what is correct and what is incorrect, and to most of us, gender is a biological function, evolved to preserve and procreate our species – boys are boys and girls are girls.
I know I’m always banging on about Political Correctness (PC), something which most people think is simply a system devised out of politeness, designed so as not to offend certain people, but it is much more than that.
It is a classical “Wolf in sheep’s clothing”, and more a crafty method of destabilising society, revealed in Anthony Browne’s excellent book “The Retreat of Reason” a summary here:
The Retreat of Reason Political Correctness and the Corruption of Public Debate in Modern Britain Anthony Browne Civitas: Institute for the Study of Civil Society

Buy the book from Civitas, read it carefully, study the details and then see how in practice it destroys and confuses – Sally Rowe says in the Daily Mail she is “scared stiff” of the hate campaign being waged against them, and fears for her family’s safety – “Nothing seems real anymore” she added.
And that’s what Political Correctness does.
The best way to beat it is to find out more of its Marxist origins and then expose the untruths it is based on, and which lead to the myth of racial equality and to the hiding of the dangers of unnatural sexual practices, same sex marriage, the nonsense behind feminism, plus the reasons behind the censorship of so called “far right” politicians by the BBC.
Then mock it, laugh at it, then it will go away, but only if enough of us make the effort.
