Ooh popcorn time

This could get interesting, seems it's soon to be "LGBT History Month" and homosexuality and alternative sexual lifestyles is to be bigged up in schools as part of a Government-backed drive to "celebrate the gay community".

Telegraph.

Children are to be taught about homosexuality in maths, geography and science lessons as part of a Government-backed drive to "celebrate the gay community".
Lesson plans have been drawn up for pupils as young as four, in a scheme funded with a £35,000 grant from an education quango, the Training and Development Agency for Schools.
The initiative will be officially launched next month at the start of "LGBT History Month" – an initiative to encourage teaching about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual issues.
The lesson plans, spread across the curriculum, will be offered to all schools, which can choose whether or not to make use of them.
But critics last night called the initiative a poor use of public money which could distract from the teaching of "core" subjects.
Among the suggestions are:
Maths – teaching statistics through census findings about the number of homosexuals in the population, and using gay characters in scenarios for maths problems;
Design and technology – encouraging pupils to make symbols linked to the gay rights movement;
Science – studying animal species where the male takes a leading role in raising young, such as emperor penguins and sea horses, and staging class discussions on different family structures, including same-sex parents;
Geography – examining the transformation of San Francisco's Castro district in the 1960s from a working-class Irish area to the world's first "gay neighbourhood", and considering why homosexuals move from the countryside to cities;
Languages – using gay characters in role play scenarios, and teaching "LGBT vocabulary".
The lesson plans, written by teachers and backed by the Department for Education, will be available for schools to download from the Schools Out website.
For younger children, the plans will suggest using images of same sex couples and also promoting books such as "And Tango Makes Three", which is about two male penguins raising a young chick, inspired by actual events at New York's Central Park Zoo.
 I can't help wonder who is kidding who here if they think that kids (who will victimise any one they perceive to be different) will buy into this sort of guff, but each to their own. That said, I just wonder how they believe our resident Muslim/Islamic community are going to react to this?

http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2009/may/07/muslims-britain-france-germany-homosexuality
- 0% of British Muslims found homosexuality acceptable.

So we have the delicious possibility of a righteous pet fight coming up, though I suspect a lot will chicken out of the voluntary scheme if they have a large percentage of Muslims at their schools or even ignore the subject entirely.

I'm still waiting patiently for "White History Month" and the MOWO (Music of white origin) awards, a White policeman's association and I can't see any of these happening any time soon.

I'm feeling victimised.

I remember my maths teachers just after the war. Just demobbed, and bearing in mind that few of us had seen citrous fruits for the traditional "if two oranges and a lemon cost a shilling, etc," his lesson ran along the lines "If a hand grenade and ten rounds for a rifle cost .....".
He'd really be loved by our politically correct politicians and educationalists these days.

I would like to see the name and e-mail address of the bonehead who decided this published in the press, preferably with a note of the salary paid out of taxpayers' pockets to the halfwit.
The views of the general public could then be made known directly to the twerp and all its mates at Jobsworth House SW1.
It should be asked to explain why our money is being wasted on 'celebrating' something that most of the population are sick of hearing about.

A little time bomb left by the old administration. It should be strangled at birth by the new lot, but I bet they won't incase they are labelled homophobic. LGBT!! FFS! utterly ridiculous nonsense.
I wonder if they will include parthenogenesis in the little kiddies lessons to really confuse them?
