“What did you learn in school today, kids?”
“I learned you’re a cisgendered bigot, Mummy”.
Remember, you’re the bigot:
“You just know that the people pretending to be livid that a drag queen read a book in a school are also the people who run out to buy their kids the latest Grand Theft Auto on release day.
“Your homophobia is transparent.”
That’s Mhairi Black, SNP MP tweeting at you.
Here she is sitting at the table to the right of Cruella DeVille.
When we drop our children off at primary school every morning, what are our expectations of what will and won’t happen to them during their day?
Well, obviously a collection of educational outcomes; they will be better able to read, write and count than they were yesterday, for example.
Perhaps also some level of improvement to their ability to function socially, learning how to behave reasonably around others.
Perhaps the most obvious requirement is that they will be kept safe, both physically but also mentally. We shouldn’t be setting them up for nightmares.
Does it need to be said?
Men who perform sexualised acts in nightclubs whilst dressed as women should not be allowed in our children’s schools.
When did we forget this?
For fucksake, these people shouldn’t be allowed within 500 metres of a school.
In other news, the Scottish education system is going backwards in its most basic responsibility; teaching kids to read, write and count.
Keep voting SNP, Scots. I’m sure they’ll improve things for you eventually.
A rather clever Twitter thread on the subject here.
