Cramming it in where it doesn’t belong: UK schools introduce gay math, geography and science

by editor on February 3, 2011

Things haven’t gone so well in the United Kingdom for the last hundred years or so. So the nation’s leaders have decided that what its school children really need is a celebration of the gay community in math, geography and science courses.

Yes. Gay math. Gay geography. And gay science.

The Village People teach gay spelling: "Y-M-C-A"

The Telegraph UK has the bizarre details:

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;

Can’t wait to hear how they explain that gays can’t multiply.

Design and technology — encouraging pupils to make symbols linked to the gay rights movement;

Like a giant limp wrist unfurling a rainbow flag. But be careful when spelling flag, kiddos.

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;

And unicorns. Don’t forget the unicorns. They’re, like, the gayest animals ever.

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;

While you’re at it, examine what an Indian was doing in the Village People.

Languages — using gay characters in role play scenarios, and teaching “LGBT vocabulary”

Role-playing gays. Now how could this go awry?

While this is definitely an outstanding addition to school curriculum, we can’t wait to see what happens when the United Kingdom’s celebration of the gay community in math, geography and science runs headlong into the United Kingdom’s celebration of the Muslim community in math, geography and science courses.

This should be interesting.

How did the ancestors of these limp wristed swells ever beat the Nazis? Queers and Muslims – they’re taking it at both ends. Ohhhhhhhhhhh!

Ugh…

The only, and I mean the ONLY good point I can see in this is it will piss off the islamofascists.

This proposal is disgusting to me; it’s a sop to a radical agenda, and is indoctrinating kids. I find this repulsive beyond words.

BTW, I happen to be gay, so please don’t assume that all gays support this kind of kiddie-indoctrination crap. Leave the kids alone!

Thank you. Freedom of choice is one thing, cramming down the throats of children without the mental capacity to evaluate what they are being told is immoral and should be illegal.

Gay math, gay science, gay geology. I suspect the gay agenda isn’t going to go over well with Muslim students in English schools. Non-Muslim students can be ignored or bullied into submission by the education establishment, the Muslims, however, will vigorously protest. So here’s a big problem for the idiots and communists running English education; they support “gay rights” but they’re afraid of Muslims who are vigorous protestors and apt to violence but they are also regarded as a persecuted minority whose demands need to be carefully considered.

Does England have a vigorous home schooling movement? If not, it’s time for one. Get your kids out of the educational madhouse.

This happened in Germany: http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=93583

It is my understanding that it is happening lesser or greatly in other European countries (heck really many other countries around the world: (scroll down)http://www.schoolandstate.org/News/international.htm). Basically parents are being forced to get their children to the public school or else. I know it happened in England as well but cannot find it right now.

And it is not just homeschooling children that are being taken away from their parents or being forcefully registered in public schools OR laws being created to make homeschooling more difficult, but also overweight children are being taken away from parents… I can understand both sides of the point in that score, however I still believe this is a serious problem when it comes to liberties being taken away from people. http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/world/overweight-girl-taken-from-family/story-e6frf7lf-1111113954041?from=public_rss

Then there are the cases where even if you question a doctor’s diagnosis the children get taken away: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/children_shealth/6146654/Uppity-parents-who-challenge-the-authorities-risk-having-children-taken-away.html

European (and many other countries in the world) are crazy and the US is not that far behind.

What is going on?!?!

What is wrong with this planet? Okay this is utterly disgusting and you are right if a muslim boy or girl goes to the house and talks about how the school is teaching this I can assure you problems will arise.

“Can’t wait to hear how they explain that gays can’t multiply.”

May be the best line of all time.

They might not be able to multiply but they can ask for a child and be given one. Neil Patrick Harris? Elton John? The magazine cover shots and gushing commentary in the media about their homosexual happy families would have sickened normal people just a few decades ago. All part of an advancing agenda per the marketing treatise “After the Ball: How America Will Conquer Its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90’s”

Look, when Billy’s mom makes $50,000 a year, & his other mom makes $70,000 a year, the answer does’nt matter as long as you accept the idea of Billy’s 2 moms.

“The lesson plans, spread across the curriculum, will be offered to all schools, which can choose whether or not to make use of them.”

Ah, therein lies the rub.

So, when the lesson plans are turned down, guess what? Plan B will be enacted and it will be SHOVED down everyone’s throat.

It’s all going according to the plan…

Looks like you Brits have the same problem we have. Too many idiots allowed to vote and they keep voting the same idiots into office.

I’m begining to think that government employees, local, state or federal, and all those living on the public dole, should not be elegible to vote. They continue to vote for the person that got them their cushy gooberment job or got them more welfare benefits and now there are so many of them in this country that we working people, the ones that have to pay the bills, are no longer heard at the polls.

It makes one proud to be British – Not.

What the hell has happened? Life as we knew (and loved) it has been turned on its head. Why do minorites have to be so vociferous, and even more astounding, why do they seem to get their nefarious way all the time? What about the rest of us? Why don’t we DO somehting about this travesty?

It seems we should all turn gay or lesbian, become Islamic and be black (or a variation thereof) in order to fit in, and heaven forbid that we dare to express an opinion, however valid, against it.

Then one day, when we’re all gay, brown and Islamic, someone will say “I want to be heterosexual – I don’t want be the colour I am, and I’m inclined toward a different religious belief system”, and the whole thing will start all over again.

What madness. I’m glad I shan’t be around, and I’m even more determined to say what I think whilst I AM around, Thought Police be damned.

I don’t dislike gay people. I dislike what they do. The very act of homosexuality is against all nature, and frankly, it’s just downright wrong. The bible is pretty explicit on not doing what they do.

That being said, I’ll start understanding and allowing this “gay society” crap, along with “black history” and all the other people that are soooo proud of who/what they are, when they create a “white history” month. No, this isn’t an appeal to the KKK or NeoNazis, but an appeal to common people to be proud of their heritage. We’re the only race forbidden to have a secular month, or even day, to be proud of what our forefathers have done.

It’s not really about “liking” or “disliking” homosexual activity. The problem is it reinforces “gay activists'” delusion that everything in the universe must revolve around themselves and their genitals. For example, the gay boycott of Target last year because they gave a donation to a Minnesota gubernatorial candidate who didn’t approve of gay marriage (but recognized his role was limited to signing or vetoing legislation)…completely ignoring the fact that the donation was motivated by his opponent’s plan to jack up Target’s taxes to store-closing levels. Jobs? Economic opportunity? National security? Algebra? Meaningless, irrelevent blather–the only stuff that matters is gay stuff.

It’s all a bunch of mindless peons, being lead around on a leash by a few charismatic people. I’ve had gay friends, and they’ve never tried to force people to accept them, or enjoy what they do. It’s a snowball effect. It’ll keep getting bigger as it rolls down the hill. Sadly, the people never seem to look at what happens at the bottom. It goes boom.

Muslims forcing people to respect them, when they clearly don’t deserve it, now gays are taking that cue, and trying to force people to bend to their will. God help us, because this world is going to hell in a handbasket.

And what is the actual percentage of gays in the American population? The English population? They do not seem to graps that they are not anywhere close to a majority or even a meaningful minority. If they never told us they were gay, and quit acting like dumbasses (apologies to those who don’t, but the flaming gays need to get a life) no one would CARE!

Their psychotic theory that they can use legislation to force everyone to like them is truly beyond comprehension. For the people who complain about “legislating morality,” where are you while these demented people are trying to legislate taste?

The Brits are just taking it to the next logical level.

From the above article, “We believe that math literacy is a civil right.”

No, the kids have a right these days to the education. Whether or not they become literate, in math or other areas, is up to the kids and their parents.

They’re taking it to the next PREDICTABLE level; not the next LOGICAL level.
