School children in England

A National Health Service survey given to British schoolchildren has sparked outrage across Lancashire in northwest England. The survey asks schoolchildren whether they are "comfortable in their gender" or if they are gender confused.

The survey angered parents who are concerned that the NHS is meddling in the lives of children who are too young to understand what gender confusion is.

"I don’t want someone putting into my daughter’s head that she might not be happy with her own gender," Lyndsey Simpson, a mother of 10-year-old schoolgirl, told The Telegraph newspaper.

“It’s one thing if they feel that way already, but if they don’t, then do you want them to be unhappy for their whole lives?”

Other parents expressed frustration that the NHS is promoting false science and ideologies that favor transgender activists.

UKIP education spokesman David Kurten told Brietbart London:

"The NHS should stick to what it is meant to do: caring for the health of British men and women, and children, and not trying to create issues which do not exist by confusing children with the idea that they are the 'wrong gender'."

  • Phillybruh

    Have a conversation with your children. Or the school will!

  • Elevated Soul

    Schools worldwide are trying to implement the gay agenda on children without the consent of their parents or guardians.

    Parents need to tell children the obvious and that is "you are who and what you are born. You are either born female or male and in some rare cases,you are born as both a male and female as in an hermaphrodite.

    It need to be basic....

  • Shamari123

    YUP... but honestly the school should ask Parents permission if they want to talk to students about things like this.

  • Shamari123

    I remember we used to have our parents sign a paper that states that the
    teachers can talk to us about sex ed or anything of that matter. I
    guess they don't think that's a good idea anymore.

  • Noirluv45

    Things are getting out of hand. Schools/the government are sticking their noses where they don't belong. I knew that years ago when they determined that underage children can elect to not have their parents involved in their medical care. They can have an abortion, get medicine and treatment without parental permission. That's a scary thought. How dare they.

  • Phillybruh

    Depends on the age, anything over 10 if you haven't discussed certain issues with your children then the school should have every right.

  • JRock

    Very sad. I'm sure within the next 10 years every 9 out of every 10 boys will be gay and every 9 out of 10 girls will be lesbians. Very sad, indeed. What our forefathers and mothers tried to teach us by living an example of togetherness and values and sticking together through thick and thin and marriages that last 50 and 60 years is just gone.

  • Noirluv45

    What gives the school or anyone else the right to determine what age a child should be exposed to something? The school is not the parents, so I disagree.

  • Mystique

    This is what population control looks like. Instead of mindfucking people, why didn't the government implement a one child per couple rule like Japan?

  • PRPSP

    amen amen amen

  • Phillybruh

    When you don't discuss things with your kids, they come to school ignorant about differences thus leads to bullying. If a child is bullying someone about a difference then they are ready for apparently a long overdue sit down. My kids school has tolerance classes starting in kindergarten.

  • Rayne

    Seems like umma be home schooling my child.

  • Noirluv45

    I'm sorry, but whether children know something or not, they can still bully and be bullied. That still doesn't give the school the right to teach my child something I may not approve off. If my child was in kindergarten and they were taught about tolerance and the homosexual lifestyle, you best believe, I'd have a problem with it. Let children be children, for crying out loud. Some things are age-appropriate and sex of any kind is NOT appropriate for kindergartner. Now, I totally understand them learning the correct terms for the parts of their body and about good/bad touching, but sex. No. If a parent is cool with that, than that's them, but I would not be.

  • Phillybruh

    The children in my kids school seem to still be children and they were taught tolerance at home and in school. Your not worried about the child, your worried about yourself. I mean if your not comfortable with discussing it with your child, at least say that.

  • Noirluv45

    Our children are being brainwashed. Who decides who and what is tolerant? Who is teaching the classes? Does the parent know what's being taught?

  • Phillybruh

    Your kids aren't being brainwashed. If they aren't transgendered or gay no level of teaching tolerance is going to make them gay. My sons have two gay dad's and neither are homosexual.

  • Noirluv45

    No. Don't make assumptions about me, Philly, because I already know the shyt being taught, but I will not have someone deciding what and when my child should learn something. The PARENT determines that. Period. Sex should not be discussed with a kindergartner. Let children be children, for crying out loud. I'm sick of children being exposed to adult issues. Many of us grew up just fine not learning about certain issues while we were in K.

  • Phillybruh

    Send them too Private school, wait they are way ahead of public schools on this issue, so you may want to homeschool. I mean I said after 10 the school as every right.

  • Miss Thang

    I'm sorry, but if your kids are preteens and they do not know about sex or how to protect themselves in certain situations, then that means you have failed your children and now the state has to come in a tell them how their bodies work and about puberty and sex.

  • Noirluv45

    I didn't say anything about them being transgendered or homosexual. My point is, Phillybruh, that we all have differences of opinion and what we believe is right and wrong. Our parents usually pass those values on to us. Some are better at it than others. My issue is I don't want some teacher teaching my child something I don't approve off. This goes beyond the LGBTQ community. Many things are being taught in school, much of it propaganda. We teach kids what to think and now how to think.

  • Phillybruh

    I mean what do you expect from public schools. My mother raised me and my brother well, but their are certain things that I as a parent don't want to pass down too my kids. Her views on certain things is one them. I'm not raising little me's or reflections of my parents.

  • Miss Thang

    people like you is why teen pregnancy and abortion are through the roof in our community. There is a responsible way to teach kids about sex in a way that is informative, healthy, and wise, and gives them the tools they need to be responsible in their sex life, if they so choose to partake in it.

  • Noirluv45

    Do not put words in my mouth. It's not that hard of a concept to grasp. There is a certain age (preteen covers from 0-12) that children should learn certain things. Children in K do not need to know about homosexuality. I didn't learn about sex until I was 10. Trust me, I'm fine. The problem with this society now is that we want to grow children up so fast that we think we have to fill them with all this knowledge before they can handle it. Children usually start asking questions, and when they do, that's when it might be time to talk to them. Obviously, a young person close to being a teenager should know about sex. I never said they shouldn't, but, I'll say it again: Kindergarten is not the age. Now, if a child is curious, there is an age-appropriate way to tell them.

    Now, when the state comes in and tells them how their bodies work, are they also going to explain to them (especially girls) that if she has sex with a boy, he might be taking advantage of her and if he dumps her and calls her names, how she's going to deal with that? Sex is more than physical. It's mental and emotional. That isn't often talked about. If you want the state to parent your children, then so bet it, but I will determine what my children hear and don't hear and what age.

  • Phillybruh

    I don't advocate showing them gay porn, but I do advocate teaching about differences, There is a good chance your child beginning at kindergarten age is going to know someone who has same sex parents. Preparing your kids for the world they live in 2017 is different than 1993.

  • Noirluv45

    You know what I expect from public schools. Reading, writing and arithmetic, science, and how it all comes together in their lives. That's what I expect. I'm not against sex education. That's fine, but if they want to educate, educate about everything not just the mechanics of sex. Do you want just any teacher teaching your children stuff? Do you not ask what's being taught? That's my point. YOU determine what your children learn, not your mother, and if she teaches your children those points of view you aren't happy with, then you, as the parent, need to shut it down. That's all I'm saying. I will not give a school carte blanche control over my children.

  • Noirluv45

    Let me explain something you. You don't know me, and you're one of those people who reads but doesn't see the big picture because your one-side points of view get in the way because you don't have the foresight to see anything beyond your short opinionated nose. It's people like ME who take responsibility for my children, and when I was a CASA, others as well. It's people like me who don't allow the world to dictate my thoughts and opinions. It's people like me who discussed sex when I thought it was appropriate, and no unwanted pregnancies came from any of them. Show me where I said I would not discuss sex with my children? Show me. You don't get it, and neither does Phillybruh. I've been around for a long time and most K's are not interested in sex talk. They are playing with toys and BEING CHILDREN. What's so hard to comprehend about that. They don't need to know everything right now. Maybe your generation thinks that having a sex talk with a 5-year-old is fine. Why, if they aren't asking question. Like I said 100 times, there is a way to talk to children. They can know what their penis and vagina are and what a good/touch bad touch is, but explaining that a penis enters into the vagina when they aren't ready to hear that is nonsense to me, and I don't care what anyone says. If they happen to ask, fine.

    Let me also say that when we talk about sex to children, do we talk about love or recreational sex. Yes, it's up to them to choose, right? Are you going to tell a girl that there are boys out there whole will say ANYTHING to her, including I love you or "if you love me, you'd do it" to manipulate her into having sex only for him to dump her like yesterday's garbage and then she's left feeling rejected and used? Is that being taught? There's more to sex than STD's and pregnancy.

  • Phillybruh

    See I never said teach Kindergarters about sex. I said tolerance and differences. When ever the topic is this it always goes to sex.

  • CaramelDrop

    Doubt it. THat was a WHOLE LIE. Teaching kindergarteners about being gay or possibly being gay has nothing to do with teen pregnancy. If anything, the access to too much sexual propaganda period is why children are so sexual at a young age

  • MsPam

    China

  • Noirluv45

    Look, I'm in my 50's and I know a lot about the world. Yes, we live in different era know, and that's not always good. If my child knows of a same-sex parent and he/she questions me about it, I will explain what I want my child to know.

  • Noirluv45

    Thank you! Kids are having sex younger and younger and thanks to this society that sexualizes EVERYTHING, it's no surprise.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    You're being disingenuous. I have repeatedly said I was not a lesbian until I was molested by a number of adult teachers. I was a Michael Jackson fanatic when I was 9 years old. He could've got the cookies. But I was rejected by a boy I liked and the rejection made me more open to the next adult teacher who tried me. I don't see how you can say children can't be influenced to be gay when there are thousands of documented cases of straight kids in the sex trade who were "turned out" to participate in the gay lifestyle. Children are very vulnerable at that age and they can easily be influenced by trusted gay teachers.

  • Noirluv45

    Phillybruh, whenever the subject of tolerence somes up, it's usually sexual. That's what I've noticed. I know the conversation includes being tolerate of races, ethnicities, religions, etc., but it also includes the LGBTQ community.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Yet I’m wrong to teach my child that homosexuality is confusion and a mental illness.

  • Noirluv45

    Wow! That's heavy.

  • Phillybruh

    Actually it does, you may have a lesbian daughter who in attempts to fit in does everything her heterosexual counterparts do. I have several friends who have grown children and they aren't 40 yet because they were trying to hide who they were.

  • Phillybruh

    why does this particular subject always devolve into sex, gay people are more than just a sex act.

  • Noirluv45

    Because that's usually the way this particular subject goes.

  • Phillybruh

    So can straight students, which is mostly what I see on the news straight student runs off with her gym teacher, Math teacher giving head to the boys in the class. That goes both ways. I was raped by an older cousin, but I knew I was gay before that happened I didn't know what to call it but I knew it was the Faggot that was being thrown about during dinner on Sundays jokingly or not.

  • Noirluv45

    I pay for public school, so they have a right to go there. A parent, once again, has the right to determine what their children are taught. End of story.

  • Phillybruh

    Not in a public school. Private School absolutely which is why we chose to send our kids. But public schools curriculum is set by the government local or federal. My kids get age appropriate tolerance classes in kindergarten.

  • CaramelDrop

    The conversation will always lead to sex becausethat is the root of the topic. My first grade twins know how babies are made - I h

  • Phillybruh

    my 7 and 11 year old know that as well. Knew it before I sent them to any bodies school.

  • Noirluv45

    OK. If you are happy with their education, then all is well.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I specifically addressed your misinformation that straight kids can't be influenced or "turned out" by gays. Children don't need to know about homosexuality and transgenders in elementary school.

  • Phillybruh

    Teach them nothing about human sexuality then. Absolutely nothing. Your going to find fault in anything that doesn't fit the narrative of why your homosexual.

  • TheOwley

    It's the worldwide liberal progressive movement. Unfortunately people are blind and aren't willing to take a stand. Frog is in the pot. Jump out or get cooked.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Because the definition of homosexuality is a sexual attraction to the same-sex. Gay and bisexual men aged 13 to 24 accounted for 92% of new HIV diagnoses, according to the CDC.

  • Phillybruh

    All the more reason to teach them before 10. If the parents wont someone has too.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    How about leave the kids alone and let them be kids? Why does a 10-year-old need to know about fisting? Yes, Obama's Safe School Czar conference taught children about fisting and other sex acts normally associated with perverts.

  • CaramelDrop

    Good. I Have a 17, 13, 10 and a set of 6 year olds that know a man and woman is what is needed to procreate and anything outside of that is an abomination. They also know we ALL have choices and each choice has a consequence or benefit and to be aware of them in whatever they chose. They know to judge NO ONE or bully and they don't - if so I've never seen it or been called to discipline them for it. So all this rhetoric about teaching homosexuality too early to small children prevents anything is a whole bunch of bs to me.....because I have 5 factual living examples that prove otherwise.

  • Phillybruh

    In this day and age anything they can pull up online needs to be addressed! If your 10 year old can pull that up online they need to be taught about it. And how to stay away from it.

  • EMILY POST

    Schools have no business talking about sexuality unless its biology. Who the hell wants the schools involved in the political nonsense.

  • Phillybruh

    stats say one of yours is the abomination that you teach them against.

  • Tay Gee

    Absolutely

  • TheOwley

    Interesting how folks complain about the brainwashing of children, the misinformation being given in school, the abandonment of their education in urban areas, the destructive nature of liberal progressives which is shaped around whatever newfangled current social instead of math and sciences. There is LGBT education going on in school and everything goes. So why is anyone chock about the next step. It's a slow smoldering effect towards what? Who are the people behinds all this, and why do you persistently vote for them.

  • CaramelDrop

    Get this though, I'm not so SELFISH or phucked up about any of my choices that I would distort my choice to be "right" or a "truth" to my children. When their cognition expands and they reach the age of reason, and they begin to question my choices - I speak my truth to them and answer any questions they ask. Depending on what child ask what and their age when asked. So, oh well. Phuck a stat me and my choices are over here raising children whose souls are SAVED and well AAAAAand are EXCEEDING my expectations and shitting on stats of any - and all - in or out - of their demographic. Not only because favor ain't fair but because we wake up to crush stats around here. Got receipts, link me the stats you're referencing ??

  • Phillybruh

    Which they recently changed because they had too many dudes.

  • Phillybruh

    That's an awful lot...lol if its 1 in 3 for both sexes now. In 10 years it will be 9 out of 10

  • NeverSurprised

    Thats absurd. Literally EVERYTHzUNG can be pulled up online. Should beastiality and the ibtricacies of gay ana@l sex and child porn rings and NAMBLA be discussed with young children just because they can be "pulled up online?"

    Adults can descend into hell at whatever soeed they want.
    But children shouldnt be forced to lose tgeir innicense just to promote the g@y agande.

  • Phillybruh

    Their are age appropriate conversations you have with children, if your son pulled up fisting online and asked you about what do you do? Punish them for finding or have a discussion?

  • Ms.Vanilla

    And no aunts or uncles. Didn't anyone think of that beforehand? damn!

  • Dowoop

    LMAO

  • Dowoop

    Maybe gay marriage will last 50 - 60 yrs

  • Karen Brady

    I don't have kids but I would snatch my child up out of there so fast.

  • CaramelDrop

    Yeah but I would never try to justify my bad choice by encouraging my children or others to make those same choices. Instead, I use my bad choices as a teaching moment and teach them how to avoid my pitfalls.... which works because I have scholars with conflict resolution skills that don't bully or get bullied. Their souls are saved and according to the stats you can't reference, they're defying the odds in this blended two heterosexual parent home. I have receipts to prove this favor over here.... ready for the links to these bs stats though ??

  • Karen Brady

    I didn't learn about sex until I was 10. Trust me, I'm fine. *HIGH FIVE*

  • EMILY POST

    What does it have to do with education? Socializing the children with the norms and values of the entertainment industry and the LGBtqnmnop. If they are over 18 be all the whomever you want to be but hell no to schools even discussing their political preferences on sexuality.

  • CCW47

    Yes, me and my son talked because he wanted to know what I saw. Like boys walking and talking like girls. He said on his own that they are confused. I let my son share his thougts in a respectful way. He is 10 now but he shared this with me at the age of 8. This children are more aware than you think.

  • Brianna

    I do agree that we don't need to talk about childrens' sexuality but I do find this whole debate interesting b/c people felt the same way when it came to teaching sex ed. Teens don't need to be fucking or even thinking about fucking but yet you can get condoms from the school nurse. What's the difference ?
