A Message To Parents Who Don’t Agree With LGBT Lessons.

In the United Kingdom, in 2019, people are continuing to push their heteronormative agenda, and it’s affecting our children.

Parents in the UK have been protesting about a change in curriculum meaning primary school age children (5+) will have lessons covering sex education, including LGB relationships, trans families and staying safe online. The change also means that parents no longer have the right to “opt-out” of sex education lessons being taught to their children in secondary schools (aged 11–16).

This would be understandable, to a point, if the parents out there protesting are worried about sexual education lessons leading to increased sexual activity in their children, teenage pregnancy, inappropriate online relationships and the like. However, these protests haven’t been focusing on these potential issues.

They don’t want their children taught about same sex relationships.

They are concerned that these lessons will “turn” their children into homosexuals.

They want their children to learn about the core subjects, which would be fine and to a point understandable if they were expressing their disapproval for sex education lessons as a whole… but no…

Hey, parents…


  • Kids still get taught maths, English, science, drama, IT, PE, history, geography and more in school.
  • It is actually beneficial for your children to learn about the differences in the world, you know… to help them become understanding and kind grown ups.
  • Not everything your kid is taught in school will become something they repeat. I don’t see many 7 year old mini Hitlers/Egyptians/Bunsen Burners running around, do you?
  • Learning about other types of relationships than heterosexual ones, won’t turn your precious children into raging homosexuals.

I can assure you of the above, 100%. Do you know how I know?

My whole schooling was about heterosexual relationships. My sexual education taught me about eggs and sperm, how the penis enters the vagina, how to put a condom on a banana. And guess what? I’m a lesbian.

NO amount of social conditioning that straight relationships are the norm. NO amount of TV shows / schooling / movies / history books / news reports / witnessing the general population on a daily basis had ANY impact on my sexual orientation.

Are you honestly so afraid of teaching your children that sometimes a girl can love a girl, or a boy can love a boy, or a girl can love both boys and girls, or a boy might grow up and realise he isn’t truly a “boy”, other than being born with male genitalia.

Do you really believe that hearing about any of the above will turn your child into a member of the LGBT community?

If so; you are an idiot. Period. No Apologies.

This will not happen. And if your precious child grows up and realises their sexual orientation is not the “norm”, so what? Deal with it.

The Gay Agenda is one of the biggest lies I have ever heard (and I hear of people telling the world that the earth is flat…). On the flip side, The Straight Agenda is the most obvious propaganda in the world, and even that won’t change a persons natural sexual attractions.

TLDR: Learning about same sex relationships won’t turn the whole world gay. Don’t be an idiot.
