[DRAFT] Repeal “LGBTIQA Inclusiveness In Schools Act”

Postby Macadia » Sat May 21, 2022 8:14 pm

Repeal: “LGBTIQA Inclusiveness In Schools Act”

A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.

Category: Repeal
Resolution: GA#603
Proposed by: Macadia
General Assembly Resolution #603 “LGBTIQA Inclusiveness in Schools Act” (Category: Education and Creativity; Area of Effect: Educational) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

The World Assembly,

RECOGNIZING, the attempt made by General Assembly Resolution #603, LGBTIQA Inclusiveness In Schools Act, to address the problems faced by the LGBT+ youth of member-states of the World Assembly, and the attempt to prevent discrimination and protect their mental health,

REALIZING, that the often vague language used within GAR#603 (as it shall henceforth be referred to as) has allowed some member-nations to continue discrimination against LGBT+ students, such as through its use of the vague term “age of majority” in reference to the level at which its mandated courses on romantic orientation and gender identity must be taught at,

ACKNOWLEDGING, that the enforcement of said courses on romantic orientation and gender identity may take away time in schools from already established and proper parts of the curriculum, potentially leaving a student who may need help in said subjects behind in order to focus on the mandated courses. In addition, the enforcement of these courses may offend some national and religious cultures,

This resolution hereby repeals GAR#603, LGBTIQA Inclusiveness In Schools Act.

Against due to the arguments, for the repeal.
Hulldom: At some point, authors without real end goals for what they want to do turn their resolutions into shitposting.
I have a goal of promoting democracy, equitable competition, and readiness. Sep focuses on conduct during war. IA on liberalization of the economy and society.
I have no freaking clue with Minsk.

And this one is an attempt to replace it with a better version, not eliminate the protections for the LGBT+ community.

I assume you have a replacement in order? Otherwise, there's really no reason to promote a repeal to this legislation.

They're generally weak. The language isn't really that vague and the second argument about offending cultures is very, very weak.

“Ambassador, I have two complaints. First of all, you need more clauses, since three-clause proposals rarely ever succeed in the World Assembly. So perhaps try to find more issues embedded within the target resolution and use those issues to generate more clauses. Second, your claim that the gender identity courses in educational facilities harm students struggling in certain subjects can be easily contradicted. For example, for these students, schools already provide tutoring sessions, after-class question periods, office hours, etc. Therefore, I do not think the third clause is a valid argument against the target resolution and should be promptly replaced with a different argument.”

No, you can't. It's WA law - compliance is mandatory for all WA members.

“Thank you for the feedback, Ambassador. In my own personal experience not many students actually have the time to go after school, to receive tutoring, life doesn’t pause because a student needs to learn, and that’s what schools in their normal operating hours are for. I must admit the third clause is a very weak one, and if anyone can suggest anything to replace it with, it would be very much appreciated.”

Please stop giving this advice which seems to reduce to just telling people to pad. There is no reason why proposals need to be book length. Some proposals are naturally long (tariffs and trade being such a topic). Other proposals, especially repeals, are harmed by being too long to read and too complex to understand. Repeals are best if strategically short. This is for two reasons. Fewer claims mean fewer opportunities for honest mistakes. A single central claim focuses the repeal and clarifies the rationale far more than a single claim followed by "but also all these other things".

Also, proposals which are short and were passed regardless. I didn't even look through all of them. I just looked through mine.

Longer proposals should be motivated by a need to explain complex topics (like how exactly GA 495 is a waste of money and how its corruption control mechanisms don't work), not by an aesthetic preference for length.

While I oppose the proposal IA is right that there is absolutely no reason why a GA resolution needs to be longer than it is.

OOC: Apologies. I seem to have this “lengthy = high effort” mentality, but judging from your resolution examples, it appears that is not always the case in the WA. I will probably just limit my expectations to 3-5 clauses.
