I don't often read the Daily Mail but I was perusing the online papers and found this about a proposal for schools to question 11 year olds about their sexuality. Well I just have to comment.
If you are a regular reader here then you will know that I have LGB friends and feel all discrimination against sexuality should be outlawed. This needs to be said so that my comments are not taken out of context.
It is completely inappropriate to question anyone about their sexuality, it is a private and personal issue for individuals to share as and if they wish to. When talking about children and teenagers this is even more important.
I understand that the pretexts for this questioning is to support the young people and e sure they are not bullied; but really, it is not necessary to know someones sexuality (even if they know what that means or what theirs is) to support them unconditionally.
I have a nasty feeling that this proposal is a way in, to collect data and use it for some sort of research purposes. Our children should not be subjected to this.
I've a better idea, spend the research money on Educating and supporting parents of children who are having a difficulty understanding or accepting their sexuality, there's an idea.
