I'm not Australian, so I'm not familiar with this publication. However, it's great to see that Australia has picked up on the decision:

The Australian parents appealing the decision to have their child removed from their care because they refuse to affirm their child's gender identity will be using Keira's case in their appeal.

Well done again Keira and Mrs A - this case will have a bearing on children all over the world. Let's hope the Australian judiciary step up now too.

The Australian is a Murdoch paper, so in general its reporting can he suspect; or at least its interpretations of events generally favour the Liberal Party. However, Bernard Lane has been doing a mighty (and mostly single-handed) job, reporting on gender wars and cancel culture.

None of the other major media outlets have reported the story, not The Age or SMH, nor the ABC (public broadcaster). It’s a dereliction of their duty to report the news; not suppress it because it doesn’t suit their agenda.

I noticed that @DancelikeEmmaGoldman - I first saw the discussion on here, then went to Australian sources to see their take. Nothing, silence, I was amazed....
