BBC criticised for ‘one-sided’ trans TV show for kids

The BBC is under fire for broadcasting a pro-transgender children’s television programme about a twelve year old boy who believes he is a girl.

First Day, which premiered on CBBC last week, follows a boy’s move to secondary school as he attempts to live as a girl.

Critics have called the series “propaganda”, saying that it may confuse children.


Kate Harris of homosexual activist group LGB Alliance said that it is “not the task of CBBC” to promote gender ideology.

Harris said: “It takes a fundamentally one-sided approach to a really complex issue. It’s asking children to accept that a boy who feels like a girl is in fact a girl.

“The way it’s presented is that anybody who doesn’t accept that Hannah is a girl must by their very nature be really mean, nasty and discriminatory against someone who belongs to a vulnerable minority.”

It’s asking children to accept that a boy who feels like a girl is in fact a girl.

A spokeswoman for the BBC claimed that First Day presented an “age-appropriate representation” of issues children may face.

‘Over 100 genders’

Last month, the BBC removed some of the UK’s most controversial pro-trans groups from its online ‘Gender identity’ information page.

Links to Mermaids, The Gender Trust, and The Gender Identity Research and Education Society (GIRES), which promote radical transgender ideology, were replaced with a link to the NHS.

In 2019, a BBC resource for children aged nine to twelve claimed that there were over 100 ‘gender identities’. It told children that gender is “who you are inside”, but that sex is whether you are born a boy or a girl.
