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 😢🏳️‍🌈💔

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.

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.

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.

I find the whole thing really frightening. I never thought of such backward steps happening here. I’m struggling to get my head around it. I wish they could just come and meet our families. Perhaps that might change some minds.

Harassment based on someone being trans is illegal under the Equal Rights Act 2010. Includes misgendering when done to humiliate, offend or degrade (repeatedly addressing as the sex you've been asked not to) This law does not apply to who has an exemption

Not heard much from before, but that was probably a good thing - cluelessness proven on

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

Government must not back down on . All religions should be excluded from schools and modern values must be protected from medieval ideologies.

If you were to give two to a very homophobic human being. What would they be?

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.

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 🙄

“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.

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 so nice to go on a tea break and see my literal existence debated on national television. Thanks sky news.

If I'd have had more extensive and inclusive lessons in primary school I can ASSURE you that it would have saved me a lot of pain and upset throughout my early teen years, rather than growing up thinking there was something wrong with me.

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.

The debates and protests terrify me. I think about me and my wife to be having children and sending them to a school where this could be happening and it’s scary - let’s hope by then society steps forward from this and doesn’t continue to run backwards to the past 🏳️‍🌈
