I saw a bumper sticker on the back of an old diesel ute that said, "I identify as an electric car", which pretty much covers it!

Bad enough for the Ministry of Transport, but even worse in my opinion, is the NZ Midwifery Council that has produced a Midwifery Scope of Practice document that does not contain two words that most of us would consider central to midwifery practice: "women" and "mothers". Reading this made me wonder what it is that midwives actually do. It's certainly not clear from this what midwifery practice is.

The promotion of queer theory in government departments is no more than cultural imperialism: https://lucyleader.substack.com/p/theres-a-name-for-insisting-that And the fact that NZ taxpayers are both funding and paying for the promotion of a chaotic and destructive ideology compounds the damage.

Even worse than I thought that it was in Government departments, by Emma's accounting of her experience there.

Certainly a 'load of bull' and a 'crock of shite' not optimising organic potential but rather drowning in ordure!

Appalling persecution of an individual, by both Inside OUT and the MOT, challenging their democratic right to express an opinion and ask valid questions. NZ is going down a very dark rabbit hole over gender ideology. The word 'inclusive' means exactly the opposite when it comes to women's sex based rights and the erasure of language that defines women as adult human females in their own right let alone as pregnant women and mothers.

nz is shot. all govt department's, education, social welfare, justice, health... media, private corporations. everything is taken over and people are (rightly) scared to express an opinion about almost anything except sport and weather.
