League furious over transgender's lesson to kids

Lawmaker says gender class shameful, 'surreal row' says M5S

(ANSA) - Rome, January 21 - League lawmaker Simone Pillon on Monday blasted a lesson given to schoolchildren by transgender actor and former parliamentarian Vladimir Luxuria that was screened by State broadcaster RAI. "Gender lessons to a class of children are unacceptable," said Pillon, the vice-president of the parliamentary commission for childhood and adolescence, referring to the contents of RAI3 show Alla Lavagna! (At the Blackboard).
    "Vladimir Luxuria should go and tell her 'bird fairytale' somewhere else, definitely not in a school with kids who are minors in front of the RAI's cameras, referring to a common synonym for the penis.
    "It is a shameful form of indoctrination... We will file a question to the RAI parliamentary oversight committee". The League's government partner, the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S), called the League's attacks on Luxuria "surreal homophobic polemics".
    The M5S's cabinet secretary with the equal opportunities brief, Vincenzo Spadafora, said the League's attitude was "retrograde".
    He said RAI's initiatives in this direction "should be supported".
