Has anyone seen the Diversity Role Models Schools pack?

Local schools are using this pack and I'd like to know more about it. DD1 12 had a visit from these people last year and didn't report anything which actually worries me at the time, but in fairness I only started understanding the issues a couple of months ago.
The advice for governors looks like it may be of interest. Looking at the web site it doesn't look especially worrying; sure it's not like an allsorts pack, but it's hard to tell. I'm planning to take a Transgender Trend pack in as an alternative.

I realise this is a zombie thread but my child's school is introducing this (it is already a Stonewall Champion) and I wonder if anyone can answer the orginal post?

Seven hells. Why is a group working with children retweeting this?

What the?? “Hump” day Hmm

Looks more like something a Hen’s Party organiser would tweet.. not a kid’s organisation! It’s a bit like those “drag queen story time” sessions, something not quite... right.

Having said that, I’m not local OP so can’t help but hopefully someone is along soon.

Thanks. Initial research shows once again, red flags over who is leading this. References to drag, Juno etc.

I saw a boy in the park dressed like those men. He was about 10-12 and I almost fell over with shock. What is this world coming to?

Hump day just means a Wednesday. So you've gone up the week and then coming back down.

Cwenthryth · 14/05/2019 19:59

Hump day does commonly mean Wednesday, but writing it as “hump” day is like saying “wink wink hehe hump also means sex lolz” especially when written next to an advert for what looks like a stripper troupe.

I’m not sure what’s outrageous about wednesday or a rugby team?

Orchidoptic · 14/05/2019 20:23

simon, I think you’re being a bit disingenuous here. You know damn well what we are upset about, and its not Wednesday rugby.

Placemarking because this group are in our local schools too.

Interesting TGDOV / mothers day post.

Pretty negative about the actual mother and blames her for the son's alienation. I wonder if she's on the trans widow thread.

Thanks. I know exactly what the hump tweet infers.
I work in schools and would never dream of tweeting something so inappropriate.

The trans parent role model does write a lot more about the personality and interests of the son than the daughter. Glad the daughter is lovely though...

LuccaQuinnsSideeye · 17/05/2019 16:23

I've just this afternoon had an email from my 13yo dd's school saying that DRM are going to be working with them.

I'm too petrified to read the DRM website. I don't know what I'll do if they're peddling the usual pink brain/blue brain bullshit.

OhHolyJesus · 17/05/2019 17:14

Lucca Can you reply and ask the time and date and state that you do not consent and remove your DD?

NotTerfNorCis · 17/05/2019 23:58

Hm that trans parents says there's no difference between being a trans parent and any other sort... but their transition was obviously massively disruptive and hard on the kids. They haven't even seen their son since the transition.

Outanabout · 18/05/2019 09:13

That blog made me squirm for the children. Subtly 'educating' them. Talking about the transitions his daughter went through, like from baby go toddler then on through childhood.

So very kind assuring the daughter that they wouldnt judge her. Telling someone you won't judge them is telling them they're in the wrong, but you're the bigger person.

Absolutely no understanding of why a fifteen-year-old boy might not be able to deal with it, all the ex's fault.

I think threads like this should be in AIBU. When my children were in school I'm ashamed to say it wouldn't have occurred to me to read through what they were being taught.

HandsOffMyRights · 18/05/2019 09:42

Lucca, the email might lead to a DRM questionnaire which asks you 'which gender do you identify as?' and does ask for parental comments so they can warn the school of potential T* bigots like me?).

HandsOffMyRights · 18/05/2019 09:43

Meant to read T* bigots - aka anyone who objects to gender ideology being taught as fact.

LuccaQuinnsSideeye · 18/05/2019 15:40

I already filled in that form and will definitely have set alarm bells ringing, as I went off on one a bit.

A radfem friend of mine just told me that she has a friend who is one of the Diversity Role Models, and as far as she’s aware, DRM don’t go in much for trans propaganda - it’s almost all about gays and lesbians. I am desperate for that to be true! Should I go into school to talk to the teacher running this? What resources could I take for her?

SimonJT · 18/05/2019 19:05


Ex did a one off DRM presentation in a school a few years ago, it was mainly focused on treating people kindly and being a shoulder to cry on as you don’t know what others are going through.
