The Turnbull government should be called upon to immediately close down the Safe Schools Coalition for trying to indoctrinate Australia's children to believe the homosexual propaganda.. At the very least it should be shut down pending a full investigation by government welfare agencies responsible for the protection of our children.

"Safe Schools material endorses unsafe practices and teaches rainbow ideology to children as young as 11..
“Disturbing reports have come out in the last week which have exposed the graphic sexualised nature of the Safe Schools material and the Minus 18 website it promotes to kids,”
Federal Education Minister Simon Birmingham has defended the objectives of the program saying it has “perfectly reasonable objectives”. Yet, “It is hard to see what part of the program might be reasonable.
Does he find it reasonable to teach children that anal sex between men is good, normal and healthy? Does this sort of "education" benefit our society in any way?
“Is it reasonable for 11-year-olds to role playing in class where they are imagining that they are 16 and in a same-sex relationship?”
"Providing instructions for girls on chest-binding and boys on genital tucking or having boys in girls’ toilets has nothing to do with a bullying program. “There are already many good bullying programs in place that deal with bullying in all its forms.
“We call on schools to remove this material immediately until at least a thorough investigation is undertaken and the content is fully explained to parents,” Ms Francis said.
“it is not enough to say that the schools have autonomy in using a program the Minister is funding when it contains harmful information. The Government still has a responsibility to ensure the wellbeing of children in the school system.

Every child comes from and needs BOTH a mother and a father. Same-sex "marriage" intentionally keeps either a mother or a father from the child. Government should protect the child through upholding traditional marriage.
