MPs vote to make relationship and sex education LGBT inclusive from primary school, iNews

“MPs have voted in favour of LGBT inclusive relationship and sex education for schools in England by a resounding majority. 538 MPs backed the proposal… which will mean children are taught about different family models from primary school. 21 MPs opposed the measure. If the regulations are approved by the House of Lords, the final guidance is set to be published and come into force from September 2020. The issue has caused deep divisions in some communities…”

New campaigns opposing the SRE regulations:

The website of the Values Foundation, a coalition formed to “uphold the centrality of traditional faith and family values in British education” 

New campaign and website launched – 40 Days: Upholding Traditional Values. Join by paying £1. “Education promulgated via Relationships Education and RSE will ultimately transform Britain into a post-modern liberal society which does not distinguish gender, promotes LGBT lifestyles, destroys family life as we know it and undermines if not humiliates religion.” ’40 Days’ aims to * support the initiative and protect the innocence of children; * allow parents to decide how to educate their children in RSE; * resist state intervention outside the remit of the core curriculum.

How to respond to the claim that this kind of sex education is necessary to prevent ‘bullying’?

…the unquestioned narrative of bullying of LGBT youth is used to drive education policy. A certain proportion of the population is ‘gay’ from birth, probably 10%, the argument goes. The ‘heteronormativity’ of society makes this minority feel like outsiders, indeed many are bullied simply for being gay. This is the reason for low self esteem, sexual promiscuity and even suicide among gay young people. The solution is to make all schools and workplaces completely accepting of LGBT behaviours and attitudes, and to downplay and minimize traditional family structures.

But …all of these arguments are based on myths. Sexual orientation in young people is notoriously fluid, rather than an innate characteristic like race. The 10% figure was first put forward by the ‘sex researcher’ discredited paedophile Alfred Kinsey in the 1950’s, and has consistently been refuted by more recent research. Rhetoric about ‘homophobic bullying’ being more prevalent and nasty than bullying for other reasons, is not backed up by facts. In particular, data on tragic cases of youth suicides is being falsified to claim peer disapproval about sexual orientation as a major factor, when every suicide has a much more complex background.

…the origin of this theory [has been traced] to gay activists in San Francisco in the 1980’s, whose assertions about suicide were based on ideologically driven research without proper controls, but whose results are still used today. The ‘suicide’ argument is emotionally powerful and shuts down debate. But if it is actually not true that external disapproval is causing distress to young people identifying as gay (disproportionally to other forms of bullying), then it needs to be challenged. Bullying should be countered by the promotion of civility, not unreality and immorality.

Briefing from Christian Concern: “If parliament asserts a right to determine which beliefs a parent can or cannot instil in his or her own children, it infringes upon a fundamental liberty upon which the social order is established. By usurping a parents’ role as the custodians and guardians for their children’s development, parliament threatens religious liberty and the freedoms of conscience, belief, and even speech.”
