RobSS Posted January 11, 2022 Share Posted January 11, 2022 Just now, Macnamara said: a community that has enough clout that it can hold huge parades through cities across the west whilst it has a lobby group pushing into all areas of the british establishment, whilst being funded by the british taxpayer, to exert its influence on all areas of british life: How Stonewall influenced the BBC: Broadcaster's trainers used graphic of 'genderbread person' in presentation to staff amid involvement in controversial scheme New podcast investigated lobby group's influence over numerous public bodies Adapted their policies through membership of lobby group's diversity schemes Has promoted hard-line ideas that are controversial even within LGBT movement By MailOnline Reporter Published: 15:32 GMT, 18 October 2021 | Updated: 00:50 GMT, 21 October 2021 The BBC showed staff a controversial 'genderbread person' graphic in equality training using material from under-fire LGBT charity Stonewall - and is now refusing to answer questions from one of its own presenters about its links with the organisation. An investigation by Nolan Investigates, a podcast run by 5 Live presenter Stephen Nolan, found that the image was presented to employees as part of an internal BBC course set up in conjunction with the lobby group. The 'genderbread person' graphic depicts sex as a spectrum and defines gender identity as 'how you think about yourself'. It was apparently shown to BBC staff with no alternative explanations despite these ideas being contested. Nolan Investigates examined how public-funded bodies including the BBC, Ofcom and the Scottish and Welsh governments have been influenced by Stonewall due to their involvement in the group's diversity schemes. The programme revealed that Nicola Sturgeon's government agreed to delete the word 'mother' from its maternity leave policy after pressure from Stonewall. Stonewall requests ministers to remove 'gendered' words from official policies as part of its advice on becoming more LGBT friendly. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10103115/How-Stonewall-influenced-BBC.html Stonewall has already been discussed. They are not a "mafia" and they do not represent grass roots gay people. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
