The ban on same-sex parenting books at libraries in a western Sydney council area could be rescinded after widespread backlash and a warning from the premier, Chris Minns, that LGBTQ+ people were being used as a “political football”.

Four Labor councillors on Cumberland city council have lodged a rescission motion to overturn the ban, which they expect will be debated at the next council meeting on 15 May. The vote is expected to be tight.

The 23-page book explores the experience of having two mothers or two fathers in a way that is designed to be understood by young children. Its contents include quotes such as “having same-sex parents is no different to having opposite-sex parents”.

The book notes that “people might make assumptions” and “people might be unkind” and contains advice such as: “All loving families are good. Remember, as long as you are happy, it doesn’t matter what other people think.”

“Treating someone unfairly because of who they love is a type of discrimination and it is never OK,” the book says.

Christou this week publicly confirmed he had not read the book.

Once a Labor party member, Christou defected to Our Local Community in 2019. He ran as an independent for the federal seat of Parramatta at the 2022 election, garnering 2,982 votes.

In 2021, while he was the Cumberland mayor, Christou used his casting vote to defeat a motion that would have installed street signs in the area that said “Racism Not Welcome”.

Christou is known for his outspoken views and has previously advocated passionately for the right to free speech.

On 28 April, just four days before he put forward the amendment to enact the book ban, Christou posted a video on his X account railing against Australia’s eSafety commissioner as a form of “censorship” and an “attack on people’s free speech”.

“Freedom of speech is very important, but this country is being run down the toilet by this government and their communist regime. It’s not on,” he said.

Now a far-right preacher known for his vile rants about the LGBTQ community is calling for men to burn their wives’ pants because, he says, it’s just a form of crossdressing.
Brother Duncan Urbanek spread the love of God by using anti-gay slurs and encouraging men to destroy their spouses’ possessions. Urbanek is a member of the Stedfast Baptist Church, one of the most vicious anti-LGBTQ hate groups in the nation. Church leaders have called for the execution of gay men and publicly celebrated tragedies that killed members of the LGBTQ community.

“People want to get so riled up… Yeah! F*gs are an abomination. God hates ’em,” he begins. “Well, didn’t it just say if you’re a crossdresser, you’re an abomination too?”

“Now obviously it’s not as bad as being a fa***t,” he continued, “But God is still very upset with your sin.”

“No what should we do about that, knowing this as Christians? If you’re a woman and you own any pants, throw them away. Light them on fire. If you’re a man and your wife has pants, throw them away. And if she yells at you, so be it. Throw them away. That’s a good fight to be in.”

“If I was caught wearing a dress and that was online,” he said as his strange rant continued, “I would do everything in my power to get rid of that picture. Like, man, I gotta find the owner of it and persuade him. I gotta pay him off. Like, man, please delete that picture.”

“You know, there is no picture of me wearing a dress,” he added quickly with a nervous chuckle, “because I’m never going to put one on. I don’t own any and I don’t want to wear any. And women should have that same standard.”

“Transvestism is very common amongst sexual predators, even serial killers,” she said.“So how are we women supposed to tell the difference between the ones who are a threat and the ones who aren’t? Easier for women to exclude all males from spaces where we are vulnerable.”

The Wiggles, once a safe haven for children, is now indoctrinating them into harmful LGBTIQA+ ideology, confusing them about whether they are boys or girls.

A “non-binary” unicorn, Shirley Shawn, has been added to the phenomenally popular children’s entertainment group in the name of “diversity”.

Two other “non-binary” characters have also been added – a non-verbal police officer, Officer Beaples, and a shy hand puppet named Bok.

Shirley Shawn appeared in a 2020 YouTube video with the Wiggles holding an umbrella in the colours of the rainbow political movement – a movement which teaches children gender is fluid, mothers are to now be referred as “birth parents” and that breast feeding must be replaced by “chest feeding” to accommodate “men who give birth”.

As well as the non-binary characters, the Wiggles added four new humans to its cast representing Australians of different ethnic backgrounds.

That aspect of the changes to the line-up is of course laudable.

Announcing the changes, Wiggles major shareholder and Blue Wiggle Anthony Field AM said in a statement: “As society has evolved, we have embraced the need for diversity and inclusiveness and want children all over the world to see themselves reflected on the screen.”

Most parents would not agree that teaching children that their gender is fluid is a good idea.

Too many children have been put on a path towards puberty blockers, cross sex hormones and surgery, with experts expressing grave concern about the activities of children’s gender clinics.

Please send a message to the Wiggles: Stop indoctrinating our children!

{Context: Australian Prime Minister’s comment in response to thousands of women who rallied outside Parliament House for the March 4 Justice protest on Monday.}

"Not far from here, such marches, even now are being met with bullets, but not here in this country," Mr Morrison told Parliament.
"This is a triumph of democracy when we see these things take place."

1. The Twitter class is not outraged at the alleged rape in parliament because it may be a rape.
Instead, the Twitter class is actually ecstatic about the alleged rape because it gives them an opportunity for a political attack.
Sadly that's what this is mostly about. Politics.

Tom McGuirk #psycho #sexist pedestrian.tv

He’d matched with Sanderson on both Tinder and Hinge last week. Sanderson told PEDESTRIAN.TV he was quite forward, imploring her to come to his house for sex, and turning nasty when she didn’t.
“He was like, ‘Who else are you sleeping with? Who else is over tonight? Why wouldn’t you come over?” she said.
She told him that she was sorry to have wasted his time, but that she wouldn’t be coming round.
“You did waste my time,” he said in a voice memo, which Sanderson published on her Instagram.
“You’re fucking ugly. Your ass looks okay and you would have been one fuck. You would have been just one fuck, and that would have been it. Because you’re a disgusting fat pig.”
In another message, he told her she was “below him” in society, and that “the dysgenic like you are there to serve us”.

McGuirk told News.com.au he was a “good, decent person” who made a “huge mistake” and needs to learn from it.
However, Sanderson told P.TV that dozens of women had reached out to her with their own stories.
“About 30 women messaged me that they’d had encounters with him,” Sanderson said.
“It felt like I wasn’t alone.”
