    Default Those religious people again...

    This time it is Christian...

    linky




    A Christian couple are reportedly threatening to sue a Church of England primary school because it allowed a boy in their son's class to wear a dress.

    The family withdrew the six-year-old from the school and will now educate him at home, alongside his eight-year-old brother, who was taken out of school a year ago after a boy in his class also began to wear dresses.

    The boys' parents, Nigel and Sally Rowe, will argue that the school has acted without due regard to pupils and not respected their rights to bring up their children according to their biblical beliefs.

    In short who gives a feck?

    Oh the religious idiots don't realise that the CofE churches and so attached schools can be very liberal or very conservative. If they don't like the liberal view of the bible then go to a different CofE school.

    They were on the radio this morning. Didn't come over too well at all, I thought. Their argument seemed to be that it was confusing because this boy would sometimes be dressed as a girl and sometimes as a boy. I'd agree there's an element of 'make your fecking mind up', but for them to decide home schooling is the only option AND for it to have happened to their older son too? Sounds like they're a bit too sensitive for the modern world.

    If the family are that thick then short haired girls must confuse them as girls wear both skirts and trousers.

    Sounds a bit Modern Parents from Viz to me. You have to feel for poor Tarquin living with those snowflakes.

    I was listening to something on radio 4 last week about schools having "gender neutral" uniform policies. I can't see what's wrong with having something like dresses and skirts should be an inch below the knee, trousers or shorts should be tailored. Shorts should not be shorter than mid thigh. Sports attire should be appropriate to the activity. School colours only for all items of clothing. Anyone can wear whatever they feel comfortable in.

    I thought this thread was going to be about Christian extremists threatening to attack cinemas.

    Trendy parents (usually mothers) who revel in the idea of showing off their trophy "special" child, and fill their innocent kids' heads with this transgender tulipe.

    But that's not intended to disparage older people, such as teenagers, who without any prompting from parents (often quite the reverse) decide they're trapped in the wrong body.

    I like the idea of a gender neutral uniform. Up to puberty, it shouldn't make the blindest bit of difference whether kids are boys or girls.
