Children of same sex parents are in the midst of this all and witnessing first-hand the whole debate, it is completely soul destroying for so many of us who are parents and an attempted destruction of the equality rights we have fought so hard to gain 😢🏳️‍🌈💔

This is why I felt compelled to right my blog yesterday. Society is starting to retreat backwards and it scares me

I’m sick and fucking tired of this shit. No. It shouldn’t stop it. Non religious people don’t stop religious studies lessons do they? Religion is a BELIEF. LGBT people are fucking real.

It’s silly that parents are willing to disrupt the education of many children just because of . Apparently it’s literally just incorporating same sex relationships in storybooks. If that ain’t allowed, why not burn all those fairy tales with princesses and princes too

As a children’s arts teacher, we teach that love comes in lots of forms just as family’s do. They love my rainbow tattoo.We need to teach children in schools. This shouldn’t be a debate in 2019, when I was at school I never got taught about gay people, I’m still gay.

I wish this had happened sooner and maybe kids wouldn’t feel different or ‘abnormal’ like I did. Love is love no matter who you are. Spread love to everyone.

School should be a place to promote equality and be a safe space for children to learn. Not suppressing them. There should be laws in place ensuring certain topics (including LGBT) get taught to ALL children.

Happy to our LGBT+ family and friends in Birmingham today. We stand in solidarity with Sarah-Hewitt Clarkson (Anderton Park primary school) & (Parkfield) - what you’re doing is appreciated deeply by LGBT+ people. Thank you.

There is a woman on who is telling a gay man that being gay is a choice 😂 If the lessons that she is so against were around when she was at school perhaps she wouldn’t sound so ignorant 🙄

As someone who went to school from a young age, with my mother in a same sex relationship, I wish they had LGBT lessons when I was in school. Children shouldn’t have to feel anxious or excluded in 2019, as I did. If you don’t agree, it IS homophobia.

Agree with Linda. Also it's not only about children of same sex parents, but children also interact with the wider community their aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and other relatives. (I say this as an LGBT+ aunt to niblings).

It’s heartbreaking to see parents take their children out of school because of -love is part of life and you should never be afraid to be who you are. Who you love doesn’t change you as a person, if you’re happy then you should be able to shout it loud & proud🏳️‍🌈

It disgusts me that parents in 2019 are actually protesting equality education. I would EXPECT my daughter to be taught equality in relationships

“It is not a teachers place to teach students about complex moral issues” Hey - I AM NOT A COMPLEX MORAL ISSUE. This is not something for debate.

My theory is these nutters are only pissed off because their children have had an awkward conversation after school that they were content to avoid as long as possible. BBC News - Birmingham LGBT row: Parkfield School protests resume

Working from home I always have on in the background, I like and but the amount of time you just gave Rochelle and Marvin about another game show compared to the important LGBT debate in Birmingham speak volumes!

Agreed. I was taught in a school at the tail end of Section 28. I was teased by peers, I was not supported by school staff, and ultimately made some very bad decisions all because I, and those around me, were ignorant. Education is SO important.

This makes me so so sad. What on earth is being preached to the children in our society?! Asking them to chant ‘outsiders’ is so divisive. There’s no space for separation within our community. Acceptance and tolerance only. And clearly a duty of care to these kids.

My classroom is a place of honesty, openess and tolerance. I will never change that. LGBT+ adults understand what damage section 28 did. I would never allow that to be the case for my students. They need role models and to be taught about ALL kinds of relationships
