SOS Children: A survival handbook against the dictates of gender theory
One of the greatest piazzas in Rome, that of St. John's, was packed with families in June for Family Day, with hundreds of thousands of parents shouting slogans such as 'We defend our children', or 'Stop gender theory in schools'. Hundreds of thousands of people protested in the piazza, but not only. Confronted with the State's decision to directly insert gender theory into Italian schools, many shocked and upset parents made many appeals on the internet, on blogs and social media.
This is the situation, the panorama of a difficult and confused situation which has become progressively more complicated in Italy over the last months. It has even caused many exasperated parents, not to mention infuriated, to be up in arms over the new reform of the Italian educational system which provided, more or less subtly, the introduction of gender theory in classrooms.
Complicit to all this was also bad – and often misleading – news media reporting, which over the last few months has divided and split public opinion. Now with the schools opening and a new academic year about to start, the fears and controversies that plagued the recent months resume with new intensity.
