Undermining of parental rights and family values
The ECE TOOLKIT is an abomination to humanity.
It should be withdrawn with immediate effect.

DBE’s refusal to establish a Family Values Unit
I do not agree that children should be indoctrinated as this will lead to a breakdown of society.
Children are innocent and it should remain that way.

We can respect people's values without having them imposed on us. Forcing this on people who disagree with it is wrong. I have a right to protect my children from what I consider harmful to them. The DBE would be essentially removing our rights as parents and as citizens.

This bill aims to undermine social, family and religious values. We can not allow the government to force the majority to cater to the ideology of a small minority

The Department of Education must stop meddling with the more soft family related issues and leave it for the parents to handle according to their values. The Department of Education must focus on the more school related subjects eg mathematics, science, languages etc and ensure the scholars are properly educated at a high standard. Family related matters are the domain and duty of the parents.

Stop meddling with matters that are more family and household related. Please focus on more school related subjects eg maths, science, languages and leave the family related items for the family and mainly the parents.

Let children be children!! Leave them be to remain sweet and innocent for as long as possible. There are far too many sick people in this world already! We don’t need our children’s minds corrupted by absolute BS when their brains are still developing!! It’s very simple God created Adam & Eve, there was no in between!

I strongly object to the Early Childhood Education (ECE) Toolkit deployed by the Department of Basic Education (DBE) to train teachers to promote transgender ideology to young children.

1) The ECE Toolkit violates the Human rights and Constitutional rights of parents and children:

1.1) It is the God-given right of parents to decide what our children are taught.
Children belong to parents, not to the government. It is not for the government to decide what values and ideologies children need to be brainwashed with. It is for parents to decide what values they want their children to be taught.

1.2) It is the Constitutional right of parents to decide what our children are taught.
Parents and children have the Constitutionally protected right to freedom of thought, freedom of speech and freedom of religion. These Constitutional freedoms directly translate into the education of our children. Because my child and I are free to choose what we believe, therefor I am free to teach my child, what I believe, without government interference. A people who do not have the freedom to pass on their beliefs to the next generation through education is a people who do not have freedom of thought, freedom of speech and freedom of religion.

1.3) It is a basic Human Right of parents to decide what our children are taught.
According to Article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: “Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.” It is not for the DBE to violate this basic human right of parents.

2) The ECE Toolkit harms children by promoting transgender ideology:

2.1) Transgender ideology denies reality and openly promotes falsehoods.
The biological differences between men and women are plain to see. It is a blatant lie that these differences are only gender “stereotypes”. Convincing a child that these obvious differences do not exist and that the child should explore alternative genders, puts the child on a life-long collision course with reality.

2.2) Children are not ready to process or evaluate sexual issues.
The content that the ECE Toolkit forces upon children to explore, is totally inappropriate. Children have not yet developed the capacity to process sexual content.

2.3) Transgender ideology HARMS children.
All sane and decent societies have always protected children from sexual abuse and from being sexualised. The ECE Toolkit harms children in the most direct way by:
a) Encouraging gender confusion.
b) Exploiting the naivity of children to force them into making life-changing decisions when they are not ready for that.
c) Removing children from the love, care and protection of their parents. Anyone who pushes a child to make life-changing decisions without the input and knowledge of their parents, cares nothing for that child.
d) Removing the protection of female-only toilets and bathrooms. All sane and decent societies have always protected women and girls from sexual abuse by ensuring that they have a safe space in toilets and bathrooms.
The ECE Toolkit and Transgender ideology care nothing for keeping women and girls safe. It is happy to leave women and girls vulnerable and exposed to abuse, as long as it can create a “safe space” in bathrooms for men and boys who have been confused about their sexuality as a result of programs such as the EDE Toolkit, or men and boys who take advantage of the naivety of the DBE stance on sexuality to abuse women and girls.

We don’t want “Social Cohesion and Equity” that harm children. We want children to be safe from sexualisation and sexual abuse.
We don’t want the toilets and bathrooms of girls to be invaded. We want girls to be protected.
We want safe spaces for girls and women.

This is a violation of our rights as citizens of South Africa especially with regards to the rights of decision making related to family, culture, belief systems. The imposition of this new supposed "toolkit" is unconstitutional in how it advocates the necessities of its views disregarding the views of the parents and children being affected by its use.

Gender ideology training teaches kids that it is normal to be able to choose your gender. It is not - gender is determined at birth. Teaching them otherwise is harmful to the community.

The Department of Basic Education is usurping the role of parents.
They want to indoctrinate children at a young age.
The money they received for the ECE Toolkit has hidden agendas.

It is ultimately and firstly, the parents right and responsibility to educate their children regarding any matter, not that of an educational system.
The educational system should always support parents views first.
