Whitehall goes woke: Civil Service recognises more than 100 genders, forces staff to have a ‘non-binary network’, ditches ‘mother’ and ‘father’ in emails, and holds a Trans Day of Remembrance
- Whitehall civil servants implored to use gender-neutral pronouns in emails
- Misgendering prompts sanction; one senior official described token promotion
- Staff sent to ‘gender non-conforming book club’ to mark Non-Binary Aware Week
- The liberal measures come despite government’s touted ‘war on woke’
Whitehall civil servants are being sent to gender non-conforming book clubs and told not to call mentally ill people ‘crazy’ in a new wave of wokeness in Westminster.
Staff at the highest levels of government must also mark ‘World Afro Day’ and ‘Bi-visibility day’ within their departments.
The civil service reportedly recognises more than 100 genders, the investigation found.
Whitehall staff are being sent to ‘gender non-conforming book clubs’ on the taxpayer’s time
A source told The Telegraph: ‘My colleagues and I were informed by HR that there are over 100 recognised gender identities in the Civil Service as staff are permitted to self identify their gender without any medical input and regardless of biological sex.’
Whitehall HR guidelines in the Department of Health’s Guidance: Gender Identity and Intersex document states ‘all gender identities’ are recognised.
A second circular lists 12 separate identities in network for transgender and intersex staff a:gender.
The group is open to members who self-identify as transgender, transsexual, non-binary, gender fluid, genderqueer, gender variant, cross-dresser, genderless, third gender or bigender, and intersex.
One official said they were told to spend a fifth of their ‘corporate objective’ time working in ‘corporate identity networks’, defined as goals to make the civil service more inclusive.
They said they had to spend five per cent of this time in a ‘non-binary’ network which included attending a ‘gender non-conforming book club’ and celebrating ‘Non-Binary Awareness Week’.
They told the newspaper: ‘I was hired to do trade policy and yet the taxpayer pays me to waste 20 per cent of my corporate work time on this crap.’
