A Royal Fluid Approach to Gender By Peter West
I know some conservative readers might be alarmed at the near biblical flavour of some articles by my brothers (and mother), here, and may feel, “no, Pete, old son of a gun, it is realy not that bad, forget your disappointment with the Catholic Church and join some Christian home group.” Now that is not a bad idea at all, and I will seek this out. But, dear friends, I am still worried, when I read stuff like this:
“Actress Meghan Markle has reportedly told friends she and her husband Prince Harry have plans to raise their child with a “fluid approach to gender” that refrains from “imposing any stereotypes,” according to sources who spoke with Vanity Fair. Meghan Markle, now formally referred to as the Duchess of Sussex, is expecting her first child in the coming weeks and has even planned a “gender-neutral” nursery for its enjoyment. “The Sussexes have already planned a gender-neutral nursery and opted for whites and grays over conventional blue and pink color ways, and this seems to be in line with Meghan’s ideas about how to raise children,” the magazine reported.”
After all, Sparkle wants the universities to decolonise the curriculum, meaning get rid of all that stuffy British stuffy stuff:
“The Duchess of Sussex has shown her support for a campaign by black academics and students that aims to 'decolonise' university curriculum in the UK, it has emerged. It is the 37-year-old's first apparently political intervention since she became part of the Royal Family, marrying Prince Harry last May. The movement aims to 'confront the legacies of the empire' and racism on campuses and promotes black and female thinkers instead of 'male, pale and stale' ones. It has now emerged that, during her January visit at City, University of London, in Islington Meghan encouraged scholars to 'open up the conversation' about curriculum in our universities and also reacted with shock at figures showing the misrepresentation of ethnicity in professor positions in universities.”
What next; abolition of the monarchy? That would surely put sparkle ahead of Princess Di, remember her?
