The British Broadcasting Company (BBC) has come under fire for a programme aimed at prepubescent children which claimed that there are over 100 gender identities.
The film, entitled Identity Understanding Sexual and Gender Identities, is currently being presented on the publicly-funded broadcasters Teach website and is aimed at children between the ages of nine and 12 years old.
The programme says that becoming transgender is a means by which children can become happy and that supposedly different gender identities include gender-queer, pansexual, and bi-gender, the Daily Mail reported.
At one point during the film, a pupil is seen asking a Relationships and Sex Education teacher: How many gender identities are there?
The teacher replies: There are so many gender identities. So we know we have got male and female, but there are over 100 if not more gender identities now.
