76, I can simply not even begin to comprehend what is going on. It’s horrifying.

Kia ora, I'm 38. I'm sooo upset by gender ideology too and the erosion of male and female in the process. Trying to shelter my children from this at present and it's becoming increasingly difficult. I have to scan all movies, TV shows, kids clubs etc... to ensure that they don't include radical gender beliefs. I talk to my daughter about how much I love being a woman trying to instill a positive view of womanhood for her so the gender cult don't get to her in the coming years. It's truly terrifying as a mum to see the effect this is having on young people and their families. I worked in youth health in my 20's and was appalled at the ideologies that guided youth health practices. I saw 'conservative' families having their values and beliefs trampled over in favor of a liberal view of sex and gender. Thank you Katrina for standing up! Wahine toa! This ideology is eroding humanity- women bear children and the 8 billion humans walking the earth all came through women - that's a fact and NOT a feeling.

I'm 62 and I also thought we'd resolved the fight for women's rights. When we get them back, and we will, we have to be sure to teach the girls coming up to never take them for granted.

Your second lesson "pay attention to the trivial" reminds me of the German saying "Beware the beginnings".

Let's hope we don't learn your lessons as hard as the Germans learned theirs.

Thanks Katrina, enjoyed this. I attended a performance of Into The Woods yesterday and I couldn't help but reflect from time to time during it about the life lessons & adult common sense that the show champions...I wouldn't have reflected if I was watching it 5 yrs ago even, I would've taken it for granted.

You good Mum worked hard so you all 'went to good schools' caught my eye. In this country that can be code for private school...??

SUFW raised my consciousness, that & giving twitter a go. Retired, I'm free to be unpopular or bolshy, or both. I keep my nose clean as it were but I have to say my peer group who still use FB as their sole socmed have little idea about the nonsense that goes on. Perhaps they don't need BP meds like I now do!

More power to you lady.
