Over In Parliament…
Secretary of State for Education Damian Hinds MP has announced that pupils in England will be able to over-rule the parental opt-out on receiving sex education in school.
From three terms before they turn 15 (a strange kind of maths) teens will be free to make their own choice rather than follow parental diktat.
The government’s new LGBT Action Plan contains a pledge to end conversion therapy – the discredited practice of persuading people to be a different sexual orientation than their body wants them to be.
The plan pledges that the government will, “consider all legislative and non-legislative options to prohibit promoting, offering or conducting conversion therapy”.
Most coverage of this issue focuses on “gay to straight” therapy. We trust that “bi cure” nonsense will be stamped out with equal vigour.
