Radio Station Orders Sensitivity Training Over Host’s Opposition to Boys in Girls Bathroom

The station has now mandated its employees to undergo “sensitivity training” on transgender issues.

An Australian radio host was attacked for alleged “transphobia” after he said he was uncomfortable with his young teenage daughter sharing bathroom facilities with biological males.

Paul Campion, one of the hosts on the popular Marnie & Campo show on Queensland’s River 94.9 FM, said that he felt uncomfortable with his 14-year-old daughter sharing bathroom facilities at her school with a 13-year-old biologically male student who identifies as transgender during a discussion about people identifying as animals.

While the exact comments made by Campion have not been publicly reported, it is known that Campion said he completely disagreed with the Queensland state government’s Department of Education, whose policies mandate that transgender students are allowed to use the bathroom of their declared gender. Campion apparently opposed students with male genitalia being allowed in his biologically female daughter’s bathroom.

After the discussion aired, pro-transgender activists bombarded the radio station with complaints about the alleged transphobia, according to news reports. Michelle Inns, the creator of a Facebook group called “Parents of Transgender Kids,” encouraged people to complain about Campion’s comments.

“There is a significant level of disgust in our community for the comments made on the show about transgender children, their access to school bathrooms (a right that is enforced by Education Queensland),” Inns said.

“The discussion of a minor‘s genitalia on public radio is also extremely inappropriate,” she added, saying it was “bitterly disappointing after all of the recent community backlash against transgender discrimination in our schools and political system that the radio station has allowed this kind of behaviour.”

“People seem to assume that shared bathroom use is putting their children at risk,” Inns concluded. “Our kids are already struggling with their bodies and are incredibly self conscious, it’s more likely they will be seeking privacy and trying to avoid conflict.”

On the Friday broadcast of his show, Campion mostly stuck to his guns, thanking those in the community who had supported him.

“My comments were not meant to hurt anyone, they are simply a father trying to manoeuvre a changing world with his 14-year-old daughter, who is also having to understand things she knows nothing about, with limited assistance,” he argued. “I’m happy to discuss the subject, because I think we can all learn something, but this is about everyone’s feelings and not just one group.”

“If you see my protection and feelings about my daughter as transphobic, there is not much I can do about that,” he continued, noting that his feelings were purely down to “protecting” his daugher. However, he then claimed he trying to “learn,” and was “open to education on what is a very sensitive issue,” apologising to anyone who was offended.

The radio station itself has now mandated all employees to undergo “sensitivity training” on how to handle transgender issues. David Wiltshire, the studio general manager, said that the station agreed that “the discussion around transgender girls sharing changing facilities with cisgender girls should never have taken place on our broadcast.”

    You should not need to apologize for protecting your child. The bathroom should be a safe space. It should not be for experimenting with confused people.

    JUST THINK: Had the constitutional framers (like their early 1600 predecessors) established government and society upon the Bible’s immutable/unchanging moral law (including Leviticus 18:22, 20:13, etc.) there would be no out-of-the-closet, in-your-face LGBT movement today because no sodomite, lesbian, or “transgender” would dare risk exposing themselves (pun intended) to petition government for their “rights” or to parade their wares in public.

    That they are doing so is just another abominable consequence of the constitutional framer’s rejection of Yahweh as America’s Sovereign and His moral law as supreme:

    “[B]ecause they have … trespassed against my law … they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind….” (Hosea 8:1, 7)

    Today’s America is reaping the inevitable ever-intensifying whirlwind resulting from the wind sown by the constitutional framers and fanned by today’s hoodwinked Christians and patriots who have been bamboozled into believing today’s whirlwind can be dissipated by appealing to the wind responsible for spawning the whirlwind.
