    Default Now they want to ban mums and dads!

    A friend emailed this to me today. Story is based in the UK. Thought I'd share it with the Links.
    Here's the direct link: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/liv...n_page_id=1790

    Now they want to ban mums and dads
    01:33am 5th February 2008


    Schools are being ordered to drop the term "mum and dad" in case it offends pupils from a single-parent, homosexual or turkey-baster "family."

    Ed Balls, who runs the department of social engineering, also wants four-year-olds to be taught about same-sex relationships.

    Teachers should avoid telling boys to "be a man" or stop behaving like a "bunch of old women." And gay teachers are to be encouraged to discuss their private lives in class.

    Presumably, pupils should stop saying "Please, Sir" when they put their hands up because it may upset the sensibilities of any maths master going through gender reassignment therapy.


    And "Please, Miss" might cause a feminist headmistress to have a fit of the screaming ab-dabs and sue for com-pen-say-shun.

    Children who use the playground taunt "gay" - as in "those trainers are so gay" - will be treated the same as racists.

    Leave aside the fact that the first person I ever heard say "Oh, you're so gay" was a gay friend of mine. Any child suspected of discrimination will be punished severely under a code of "zero tolerance."


    The Government commissioned the homosexual pressure group Stonewall and some obscure outfit called Education Action Challenging Homophobia to draw up guidelines on acceptable behaviour in schools.

    Why not ask the Women's Institute or the Mothers' Union? Or Ann Widdecombe?

    If you ask something called Education Action Challenging Homophobia, you know what kind of answer you're going to get.



    Children's Minister Ed Balls wants four-year-olds to be taught about same-sex relationships
    For some unfathomable reason, Labour has franchised out social policy to single-issue headbangers.

    Putting Stonewall in charge of what goes on in schools is like putting potty Pete Doherty in charge of the declassification of heroin.

    This used to be a sensible organisation, with the laudable aim of ending discrimination against homosexuals.

    I supported many of its aims and was one of the first in the mainstream Press to argue the case for civil partnerships.

    But having ended inequality in fields such as pensions, housing and health care, and got so-called gay marriage on to the statute books, it should have been wound up.

    Instead, it has extended its interference into areas which are none of its damn business.

    Stonewall is now effectively an arm of the Government, receiving hundreds of thousands of pounds from the public purse for "research" and "education."

    The grand fromage of Stonewall is hereditary Labour lackey "Dame" Ben Summerskill. Ministers fall over themselves to accommodate his every demand.

    He gets his own way by screaming "homophobe" at anyone who disagrees with his agenda - whether it's bullying church charities over gay adoption or trying to force through fascistic restrictions on free speech.

    And what exactly qualifies him to dictate policy? Absolutely nothing. No one voted for him.

    His only claim to fame is as a thirdrate reporter on an unpopular Sunday newspaper and a spell helping Rosie Boycott destroy the Daily Express.

    He's a professional homosexual, the political equivalent of Dafydd, Little Britain's Only Gay In The Village.

    You can imagine him filling in his census form:

    Sex: Gay.

    Occupation: Gay.

    Religion: Gay.

    Get over it, love.

    What gives him the right to shove his prejudices down our throat?

    This Government is in thrall to the militant gay lobby.

    Only last week it was revealed that sex education in schools is under the command of Chris Bryant MP, last seen performing a "sex act" on himself in a Soho nightclub and posing in grubby underpants on the internet in a sordid attempt to attract men to have sex with him.

    But where's the outrage? Bryant's plans to spend £150 million teaching nine-year-olds about "alternative lifestyles" and how to roll condoms onto bananas barely raised an eyebrow at Westminster.

    Even when there is a fuss in the papers, ministers simply ride it out and the circus moves on. Call Me Dave is so busy cultivating his touchy-feely metrosexual credentials that he's terrified of being smeared as a "homophobe."

    It is a disgrace that Gordon Brown has abrogated education policy to intolerant, proselytising homosexuals.

    They're the new Jesuits - give them the child and they'll give you the man.

    We send our children to school to learn to read and write, not to listen to some self-pitying drama teacher droning on about his sex life.

    Is it any wonder parents are deserting state schools in droves, mortgaging their futures to keep their children out of the clutches of Labour's social engineers?

    Whoever thought we'd live in a country where the notion of a child having both a "mum and dad" could possibly be considered offensive.

    What the heck is a social engineer???

    I think they're going a bit overboard with all of their wants.

    That seems okay to me. Except I think they should also ban the word "you" as in, "how are you today", because it might offend people with multiple personalities.
    They should also ban making eye contact since it's upsetting to shy people.
    Oh, I almost forgot. People shouldn't breathe in public since it scares germophobes.

    Wow, it's only a matter of time before this hits the US full fledge. I don't want sex taught to my kids at all in preschool or elementary school, gay or non gay relationships. If they mature quickly, I would want to have that discussion with them, not their teacher. As far as what someone is referred too, get some thicker skin if you're upset because a four year old calls you "Sir" but you are in the middle of a sex change operation. These are the issues that are causing people to home school their kids because it is out of control.

    Didn't I warn about the vicious disadvantages of the same-sex marriage?

    Oh yes. I did. Now we can all raise the rainbow flag and be happy about everyone being open-minded.


    What a bunch of bloody tossers.

    The only thing dafter than homophobic, scaremongering opinion pieces in right-wing newspapers without a shred of credibility is when people take them seriously.

    I'm thinking the same thing. However, it is sad the we've gotten to a place as a society where such stuff could even be considered plausible.

    Actually there's a link to the website where the article is found in the first post. Whether or not UK Daily Mail is a legit respected news organization, I can't really say. Maybe the UK Linkers could add to that.

    Daily Mail is crap just like everything else, but they don't make things up out of the air either. In this case I don't blame the media.
