Communications Officer Rebekah Moffett lays out five bad reasons to teach LGBT sex education and five things you can do to speak up.
As parents, teachers and campaigners from both sides of the sex education debate seem to be shouting their case, it can feel a little like, “he who shouts loudest, wins”. And currently, if you aren’t a supporter of lessons incorporating LGBT themes, it can quite quickly feel as if your voice is being drowned out among the noise.
Generally, the media seems to have handed the megaphone to the LGBT lobby, with press coverage largely supportive of the schools involved. Any one protesting has quickly been branded ‘bigoted’ and ‘homophobic’, with some referring to the peaceful protesters as a ‘mob’.
But with protests set to continue around the country as the new school year begins, how can parents and teachers who support parental rights really make their voice heard? How can you effectively stand up to the arguments for teaching LGBT sex ed? What is the best way to engage in the debate surrounding sex education?
Here, I lay out five bad reasons to teach sex education in primary schools debunking the myths that surround the ‘inclusive’ LGBT themes, and suggest five things you can do to make your voice heard.
