I often get news bulletins from French and English-speaking conservative sources like Civitas in France. Sometimes things go a little far like this article in French – Des petits garçons en robe à l’école maternelle au nom de la théorie du genre
I have the impression that this article is based more on conjecture rather than fact. To me it is plain that the costumes in the above image are for the purpose of a game or having fun rather than having the boys identify as girls. Note the garland on the boy on the right. This is fancy dress.
These were points I made in an article the other day about the possibility of men with long hair who are neither homosexuals nor effeminate. I think it is healthy for children to cross-dress for the purpose of play. When I was that age, my sisters and I had a big chest full of dresses and girl’s things, and I put them on for fun as they did, and we “played girls”. I also had my boy’s things like cars, train sets, climbing trees and making things. I am not a transvestite or a trans-sexual for it.
This is one aspect of conservatism that discredits issues that are generally necessary, like contesting many of the left-wing “political correct” agendas. We need to learn to think, to reason, to examine things critically lest we trash our own credibility. I am not a conservative, or a traditional-ist, but a liturgical Christian – a Catholic. We do have moral principles, but we’re not going to stop children have fun as they grow up and discover their world.
Some things I read make me very angry.
