Father’s Day is Cancelled

Last week, Neil Mitchell revealed that a kindergarten in Melbourne’s northwest has renamed Father’s Day “special person’s day” to avoid offending children with same-sex parents.

Ruby Red Scarlet heads up ‘Social Justice in Early Childhood’ and she said: “If we think about children’s rights and how they get to participate in a community and feel a sense of belonging, sometimes shifting the language around those emotive and important days can be significant and more inclusive.”

So, when did the word ‘Father’ become offensive? Precisely around the time SSM Activists started voicing their offence at ‘Heteronormative gender roles.’

At the ‘Social Justice in Early Childhood’ 2015 Conference for Early Childhood Teachers, the Program mentions a segment by Danny Xanadu on The Experience of Embodying Public Spaces in a Gender Conforming and non-Queer World.

Danny Xanadu is a Transgender 'Adult Entertainer'. Following an erotic ‘performance,’ Danny educated the early childhood teachers on the evils of mis-gendering toddlers.

This is the kind of thinking that has permeated through the education system, birthed Safe Schools and has launched a hate campaign against once revered terms like Mother and Father.

“People still celebrate fatherhood even after their father and grandfathers have passed away, in fact for many people Father’s Day is a wonderful time of reflecting and remembering,” Liberal Party MP David Elliott.

Well said, David. Some much needed common sense amongst the gender madness.

  1. It doesn’t need to have the name changed from Fathers Day to Special Persons day. If they want a special persons day they could pick another day of the year. In SMM there is one more feminine person to the other whether male or female person. So why could not the more unfeminine person take on the Father roll or vice versa. Most of these people don’t have a problem with the day it is just someone else trying to be politically correct for no reason

  2. How sad this is!!! Fathers cannot even celebrate being a Father…. when it takes a ‘MALE’s sperm’ to actually impregnate a ‘WOMEN’s ovum’. Sorry but this is by definition ‘Fatherhood’ and a ‘Father’ has the right to proclaim it. A biological parent for that matter has this right, or those who are parents by definition itself!

    YOU ‘SAME SEX PARTNERS’ are the ones who are offended, your child/children certainly didn’t come from ‘BOTH OF YOU BIOLOGICALLY’!!

    So be mature enough and accept the fact that they need to know the ‘TRUTH OF THE MATTER’ that it is ‘YOUR CHOICE’ to be in a same sex relationship and there has always been differences with regards to parents/partners etc., since I’ve lived on this planet. I am sure you have other family members who would like to be recognised for their contribution they have made in this world by having a child/children, as it takes a great effort to even have a child for some partners out there.

    Same sex parents will have to tell their child/children one day where they came from anyway, it is kind of a fact that they had to come from a ‘MALE’ & ‘FEMALE’ or do you intend to lie!

    I am so sick of this nonsense, a minority group taking away a child’s right to proclaim they have a ‘Father’ because others cannot come to grips with this matter which is ‘YOUR CHOICE’. I grew up 95% of my life with my mother and only saw my father on Christmas school holidays due to divorce and demographics. I would say half of our older generation missed out on fathers, brothers, uncles, grandfathers due to the 1st and 2nd World Wars, and maybe never having a male role model. I am sure we never were offended when we couldn’t have out father or male role model around us or have a complete family unite. We were however provided with whatever love and happiness our mother or other family members could give us.

    Yes, that is not to say we didn’t miss out on a father on a daily basis, but it is up to the ‘PARENT/s’ to inform and educate the child/children on why this is and to the level of their understanding in reference to issues of life and these particular circumstances surrounding them.

    I am a proud mother and my husband is a proud father….no one can take this away from us! Not even a minority group!

      very well said!

  3. Becoming a father was without doubt the proudest moment of my lengthy life, and fatherhood in general has given me so many beautiful memories along the way.
    I REFUSE to simply “let go” of a a day that reminds me (and thousands of other dads throughout Australia) that I have had the privilege of being both a loved and loving father.

  4. this has to be a Joke! this is one of the sickest things i have ever heard!

  5. How ridiculous is this that this is happening at in all,just became of SSM I for one will always celebrate FATHERS DAY in my family and will be thinking
    of my FATHER who has since passed away years ago,if it wasn’t for him I and my brothers and sisters would not be here in this world and we were a
    part of a wonderful family of love and kindness and closeness ,even today we all remember our DAD and will a,ways. So I am so against this rubbish and will keep on celebrating it.

  6. DAN

    If SAME -SEX MARRIAGE IS PASSED.,THIS FATHER’S DAY NAME WILL BE CHANGED FOREVER .AND YOU AND ME CANNOT USE IT AT LEAST PUBLICLY BECAUSE IT IS AGAINST THE LAW TO USE IT ! IT IS NOT INCLUSIVE AND OFFENDING TO THEM. SPREAD IT AROUND SO THAT MOE PEOPLE WILL KNOW THE DEVASTATING CONSEQUENCES OF LEGALISING SAME SEX “MARRIAGE”. IT WILL TAKE AWAY OUR RIGHTS FOREVER. ARE THEY TREATING CHILDREN AND SURROGATE WOMEN AS COMMODITIES ?ARE WE DEGRADING HUMAN AS A WHOLE ?

  7. Cutting to the chase…..it seems to me that the godless Marxists will not be satified until we are reduced the image of bacteria.

  8. So they say it discriminates against same sex couples but what about the gross discrimination against the child by not allowing it the right to have a father?? This is nothing but hypocrisy and widespread discrimation by gays against non gays and especially against children. Covering up the fact they have denied the right of the child to have a father by renaming the day is atrocious.

    Unless people speak up loudly and vote NO to this attack on the rights of children, our society will be destroyed starting with marriage, then the family unit then civilisation because it is the family unit that is our foundation.

    How can we people just stand by and allow this to happen????

  9. How ridiculous, everyone HAS a father and I am sure these children are told about their father. So why change it, Stupid in my book.

  10. It will always be Fathers Day to me although my dear Dad passed away many years ago,he was a darling.When my Mothers Sister died at 40 with breast cancer and left6 children back in the1930s,he and my dear Mumtook in 4 of those children and it was before I was born,the youngest was a baby of17 months,they were ready made family and when I was born we were all sisters and brothers ,they never called my Mum Aunty or Dad Uncle it was all their lives Mum and Dad.This changing Fathers Day to appease others is disgusting.

  11. Not the first instance of such an attempt in our ‘progressive’ Western civilisations, one State in America currently is debating a bill that amongst other things will allow legal charges to be brought against citizens who do not use a person’s preferred pronoun. (A clear symptom of Affluenza! The rest of the world is too busy getting on with life to even contemplate such nonsense.)
    Like the issue above and the Safe Schools propaganda this is not bogey man stuff but the reality of the package deal that comes with the SSM revolution to destroy marriage and the family unit of mother/father/children. I don’t know if he was repeating it but Martin Luther King Jr certainly voiced the wisdom “Stand for something or you will fall for anything”. It’s happening!

  12. We need a strong leader to stop all this crap come on Tony we need you as TURDSHIT ain’t got the BALLS

  13. So what do they intend calling mothers day?. ‘Queens Day’.

    • Michael

      Kev G,
      Maybe they’ll call it Knave’s Day.

  14. Progress…….that which is espoused and enacted by progressives???
    Smack a child….expect a visit from a welfare officer.
    Leave a child sitting unattended in a car…….expect a visit from the police.
    Deprive a child of their required formal education……expect a visit from welfare.
    Deprive a child of their mother or father……Ah….a strike for equality…..the progress of human kind. (As long as it is only happening to children and not to progressive adults!)

  15. So when mother’s day being changed then too?

  16. I went to my granddaughters ‘fathers and special person day’ last week at their kindy. It had nothing to do with same sex marriage and everything to do with fathers and in the absence of fathers ( my son was away with work hence my invitation on his behalf) significant family members attending. My four sisters and I were raised by a single father very successfully ( we are all professional women) as our mother died when we were very young. I am affronted by this constant ridiculous rhetoric that a child must be raised by a man and a woman. I was insulted and hurt many times as a child by adults holding your views who expected that I should have had a mother. Get over it. Children do well in any situation where they are raised by thoughtful loving adults regardless of their sex. Please, please think of the children.

      Mary Connor,
      The phrase “professional woman” is amusing; being a woman is not a profession 😉

      I’m sorry to hear of your childhood experiences, as a close friend of mine in primary school was terribly upset when teased about his mother having passed away. However, the point of this article is that children should be raised by their natural parents wherever possible. A natural family like yours and my friend’s, where one parent dies, is still a natural family.

      I am affronted by this constant ridiculous rhetoric that “Children do well in any situation where they are raised by thoughtful loving adults regardless of their sex”, because the most “thoughtful loving adults” would be the child’s natural parents. All of the horrific child sexual abuse uncovered by the royal commission was done by adults who weren’t related to the children they abused. “Same-sex marriage” normalises the placing of children with unrelated adults. Of course there are parents who abuse/neglect their own children, but deliberately placing children with unrelated adults makes it more likely, not less.

      A natural family where one parent dies, is still a natural family. “Please, please think of the children”, and read a first-hand account of being raised in a LGBTIQ household, Dawn Stefanowicz, Out from Under – the Impact of Homosexual Parenting.
