As time moves forward and the world as we know it evolves and becomes more welcoming, unfortunately, there will be some unwilling or unwanting to accept the sheer fact that queer people exist and have always existed. Case in point, over 100 parents in East London have been protesting outside their children’s primary school. This is the THIRD time this month this same group of parents has protested. According to Gay Times, they are 

protesting sex education in schools, as well as the removal of teaching about LGBTQ+ relationships.

 

The group, Parents of Manorfield, have also taken to their Twitter to express their anger and frustration.

 

Citing “religious objections” the group took to Twitter on October 20th, speaking to their wants, needs and demands,

“The school has likely failed its legal duty in the manner it has implemented the new RSE curriculum. The DfE guidance states that, ‘All schools must have in place a written policy for Relationships Education and RSE.”

“Schools must consult parents in developing and reviewing their policy. Schools should ensure that the policy meets the needs of pupils and parents and reflects the community they serve.”

Gay Times has also reported that “sex education lessons would be compulsory from the age of 12 in Britain from September 2020, resulting in an array of protests against this.” Clapping back against this array of protests the Department of Education responded,

“Pupils should be taught about the society in which they are growing up. “These subjects are designed to foster respect for others and for difference, and educate pupils about healthy relationships.”

  1. I do not want my children to be taught that women wearing a covering is not a real Islamic law. Covering women was brought into Islam after they conquered the Persians. So, no , I do not want that fact out there either. Please keep my children, especially my daughters, ignorant and covered!

  2. The title should be Muslim parents as they are the one’s who are protesting

    These Muslims would come to countries who have high LGBT acceptance like the Netherlands and then shove their oppressive views

    No wonder attacks on the LGBT are increasing
