自从“安全学校”这个极具争议的教育计划横空出世以来,其创始人La Trobe大学的教育学者及LGBTI活动家罗兹·沃德女士(Roz Ward)就积极的在各种场合高调推广。罗兹·沃德女士曾是维多利亚州“安全学校”联盟的主管,但在三个月前维省政府接管了此“安全学校”计划的运作权,最近罗兹·沃德女士因为一些不当的言行,也被迫从La Trobe大学辞职。不再拥有名头的罗兹·沃德女士没有善罢甘休,开始了非正式的路线继续推广该计划,并且原计划上周会在维多利亚州最新的儿童医院给医生们进行该话题的介绍,但该计划已被取消。她最近在维多利亚大学一个论坛上她大放厥词,声称一半以上的青少年可能会被同性吸引。

上个月在维多利亚大学举行的“自豪周”活动中,罗兹·沃德(Ward)女士大肆抨击保守派政治家、学者和默多克的媒体(包括《澳大利亚人》日报),指责他们对性多元化和性别多样化项目的进行的争议性讨论。在提及“安全学校”计划的宗旨是挑战“异性恋正常化”时,她现身说法道出自己16岁时已经出柜。沃德女士认为: 10%的人可能被同性吸引的这个常被引用的数据是个“笑话”,而这也是“安全学校”项目依赖的数据。她认为:“很有可能40-50%的年轻人都不是仅仅被异性吸引,这就是为什么要引入“性别流动性”的概念。”

Ms Ward, who managed the Safe Schools Coalition Victoria until the state government took it over in March, has been on an unofficial roadshow promoting the program regardless, and was due to brief clinicians at the state’s newest children’s hospital last week before withdrawing.

She also has left La Trobe University, which suspended her for alleged misconduct last year before reinstating her following legal threats, announcing the move on social media on June 8.

Speaking at a Victoria University event organised for Pride Week last month, Ms Ward took aim at conservative politicians, ­academics and the Murdoch press (which includes The Aust­ralian), blaming them for the controversy over sexual and gender diversity program.

She addressed her own “coming­ out” as a 16-year-old before talking about how the Safe Schools program aimed to challenge “heteronormativity”.

According to Ms Ward, the often-cited claim that 10 per cent of people were likely to be attracted to their own sex — a figure Safe School’s materials also relied upon — was a “joke”. “It’s more like 40-50 per cent of young people who are not ­exclusively attracted to the opposit­e sex,” she said. “That’s how fluid sexuality is headed.”

“安全学校”项目原来旨在高中生中解决反霸凌行为,并因此获得联邦拨款,而作为LGBTI倡导者和马克思主义追随者的罗兹·沃德(Ward)将这个项目政治化,引发极大的社会争议。她将这个项目发展为基于“酷儿理论”,并且认为性别并非只有男女两种,即性别是可以流动性变化的。当她的这些理论和推广实践被揭露后,在社会上引发了对该项目的强烈质疑。

罗兹·沃德(Ward)女士也曾在社交媒体上批评澳洲国旗带有歧视性,并在公众集会上骚扰美国总统特朗普的支持者,导致去年十二月维州政府宣布由政府接管“安全学校”项目。

新南威尔士州、南澳州和塔斯马尼亚州也已宣布丢弃联邦政府的“安全学校”计划,改为本州重新开发处理校园恐同现象的项目。

维多利亚州政府发言人说,罗兹·沃德(Ward)女士未曾被蒙纳什儿科医院邀请去讲解“安全学校”项目;院方已确认她已取消原本要去医院进行讲解的计划。

拉突柏(La Trobe)大学发言人拒绝对于罗兹·沃德(Ward)女士进行置评。

Ms Ward, a LGBTI activist and Marxist, courted controversy for politicising Safe Schools, which initially was billed as an anti-bullying program aimed at high-school students. It sparked a backlash when its origins in queer theory became known, including its promotion of gen­der as “non-binary” or “fluid”.

After scandals, including­ Ms Ward’s criticism of the Australian flag and her harassment of a Donald Trump support­er at a public rally, the Victori­an government announced in December that it would take over the Safe Schools program.

NSW, South Australia and Tasmania have also announced they will develop prog­rams to deal with homo­phobia in the schoolyard, abandoning the ­national Safe Schools scheme.

A Victorian government spokes­woman said Ms Ward had not been booked at Monash Children’s Hospital to speak on behalf of the program and the hospital confirmed she had cancelled.

A La Trobe spokesman declined to comment.
