Former NBA star Andrew Bogut called out the far-left’s effort to indoctrinate young children with gender ideology.
Bogut warned that dangerous gender ideology would become the “detriment” to this generation of young children if left unchecked.
Bogut joined “The Ingraham Angle” on Tuesday to discuss radical gender “inclusivity” and revaled how he tied to sign his 6-year-old son up for soccer but was offered four gender options.
“The biggest misnomer of our times is inclusive, to hear that word, it’s not inclusive, these are six-year-old kids,” Bogut told Laura Ingraham.
“My wife actually signed up for it and screenshotted and sent it to me… Can we just let kids be kids?”
“When you’re an adult, if you want to transition, or you want to do whatever you want to do sexually, I really don’t care. It’s not my business,” he continued.
“But when it’s affecting children, you know that their brains haven’t even close to fully formed yet. And as you said in your intro, it’s baby steps, it’s inches, inches of pushing this stuff.”
Last month, Bogut tweeted a photo of the signup options when he tried to sign up his son for soccer through the country’s national organization, “Football Australia.”
“Signing our 6 YEAR OLD!, Once again, 6 YEAR OLD! up for soccer. Cmon @FootballAUS,” he wrote.
There were four options for the child’s gender listed in the photo, one female, one “Non-Binary/Gender Fluid, and another for “Gender identity not sufficiently represented.”
“If they’re putting their age, and they’re under 18, it shouldn’t have all those options,” Bogut said. “The other options that probably need to be there for my six-year-old are Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man, Superman, Batman.”
But Bogut received some backlash for his stance.
Australian reporter Matt Bevan blasted Bogut’s tweet, writing, “That’s a standard form mate. Are you suggesting they adjust it just so the parents of 6yos don’t freak out at having to check a box?”
Bogut responded, “How many genders are there Matt? Give me a #.”
Australian journalist, Lilly Vitorovich, wrote, “Ridiculous and heartbreaking to think it’s an option at 6!”
Former Turkish female basketball player Ceran Sarper said, “It’s really interesting to see people’s negative reactions to your Tweet. I’m a full supporter of LGBTQ+ community but this is too much tbh.”
Bogut noted how it is still “taboo” in his home country to push back against radical gender ideology.
“In Australia, it’s still taboo to speak out against… this kind of stuff with the gender ideology under the guise of the rainbow flag and the LGBT community,” Bogut said. “I’ve got nothing against them as adults. Do what you want, just leave the kids out of it.”
“And until mothers and fathers of their kids speak up, this is going to be a detriment to our current generation of young children, and if we don’t fix it now.”
