Israel Folau, a Warratah player with Rugby Australia until recently when he had his $5 million contract ripped up for tweets he made referencing the Bible on sinful acts and the outcome for those people pursuing those acts, has now referenced gender fluidity in a sermon that he gave at his local church.

Israel stated, “You see in today’s youths and everything, they are allowing young kids in primary school to be able to have the permission to change their gender if they want by taking away the permission of their parents. Now they are trying to take control as a government to make those decisions for young kids who are basically 16 years old or younger, they don’t even know what they are doing.”

Gender fluidity is a relative new term to a lot of people. Up until the past 5 years, the majority of people had never heard the term. The dictionary definition of gender-fluid means “denoting or relating to a person who does not identify themselves as having a fixed gender”.
