Imagine signing your 6-year-old kids up for a soccer league and seeing an option to categorize the gender of your kid as “non-binary/gender fluid.”
It happened to former NBA Champion and Australia native Andrew Bogut when he went to sign up his child for a league organized by Football Australia and immediately voiced his disgust.
Signing our 6 YEAR OLD!,— Andrew Bogut (@andrewbogut) February 28, 2023
Once again, 6 YEAR OLD! up for soccer.
Worse, Matt Bevan, a reporter for ABC’s Australian network, ridiculed Bogut for being upset over a “standard form.” Bogut responded by asking Bevan how many genders there were, to which Bevan could give no answer.
Football Australia also justified its actions.
“Football Australia’s registration platform reflects our game’s diversity and inclusiveness, where it asks a series of set questions, with a drop-down feature, where participants can select options that best align with the way in which they identify,” they said in a statement.
Bogut, who has been an outspoken critic of the gender ideology for the past few years, has every right to be upset. In no sane world should any league promote the idea that anyone can be either a man or a woman -- or neither -- let alone innocent children.
Then again, we don’t live in a sane world.
