  1. Fcuk off u troll

    1. LOL…you made my day

  2. Poor, mentally Keith! Arrangements should be made to admit him to a psychiatric hospital so that he could be treated, preferably by electric-shock therapy. The degree of prurience which he exhibits is very worrying, in that it exposes a violent attempt to deny his own desires for same-sex experience.

    1. I wonder what his wife and kids think about him browsing gay websites every day?
      Oh wait….

        Oh I very much doubt if the dimwit is married. Deeply closeted self-loather I think. Has to be to keep trolling here.

  3. Who is going to be made accountable for these illegal policies in schools?

    1. Michael Gove springs to mind.

      my co-worker’s mom makes $66 every hour on the computer. She has been out of a job for 9 months but last month her pay was $13497 just working on the computer for a few hours. Read more on this site… http://xurl.es/70441

      1. AHHH…thanx for the tip but I would rather be a prostitute.

    3. I blame Putin and his cronies…those damn Ruskis are everywhere.

  4. Pink News – can we get our spelling in order please? It’s policies, not polices! – The British Humanist Association (BHA) has cautiously welcomed the Department for Education’s decision to investigate claims that more than 40 schools have POLICES in place targeting the “promotion” of homosexuality.

    Keith, you are an extremely ignorant person, as well as a being coward. You would not say that face to face or with your full name!

    1. Mate, I don’t know who or where you are, but I hope you are ok.
      I think you must be very unhappy in some way to keep coming here saying the same things, I like to vent in a similar way, taking my frustrations out on people I will never meet or even seen. Invisible people who don’t really matter anyway, it’s easy and free. It doesn’t quite scratch that itch though, does it?

      One of the attractive features of the internet is it gives us a mask, we can tell the whole world out darkest secrets and nobody will ever know who or where we are, but we are here, we are real people with our own likes and dislikes, our own emotions and thoughts, could be your bus driver or your best friend, but neither of you will ever know. You can say things you would never dream of saying in real life; you can escape.

      If you want to talk to someone about anything or everything then feel free to email me. I like pen pals, I’m a good friend, and I give great advice :)

  6. A big thank you is due to Pavan, Andrew, Sara and everyone at the BHA for their sterling work.

    It is amazing it is only news now, really. The last government under Brown allowed private schools to teach sex and sexuality according to their own ‘ethos’, giving the green light to bigotry. It’s time to root this out. Put these schools on notice, enforce evidence-based standards on SRE. Anyone teaching sinfulness of homosexuality should be banged up in jail.

    The excuse that this dates from guidance issued before the repeal of Section 28 is pathetic. Nobody, but nobody who works in a school is so thick to not know what Section 28 was, and that it was repealed. This documentation was signed off year after year after year by people who knew this. It’s institutionalised homophobia plain and simple. Everybody who signed it off is culpable. There was no excuse for it once Section 28 had been repealed. They knew where it came from, they knew that legislation had been repealed. No excuse. They also knew when the Equality Act came in to force that they must not, under any circumstances, discriminate.

    Any school which leaves it in now should face prosecution.

    1. Totally agree Gulliver, we need to see some prosecutions to get the message across that this is just not acceptable.

  8. i’m sure you’ll be pushing up daisy’s soon along with your moronic ideology…A double snake!

  10. Institutional homophobia? In some cases possibly, but in others I suspect institutional inertia. I suspect most head teachers have not read their school’s policy all the way through in detail or have not understood all of the issues. They have spent their time managing their schools.

    Moving such policies to school level gives schools greater freedom to develop individual school character, but also puts a burden of legal and moral responsibility on heads and governors. I think all the schools affected by this should have their policies checked by the responsible government department and where necessary rewritten. If schools have just signed off on these documents without proper review perhaps they are not the right people to be responsible for them?

  11. Section 28 was a good piece of legislation. Why should education systems be forced to expose minors to information regarding behaviour that billions find disgusting and immoral?
    Homosexuality has no benefit whatsoever to society and nobody has been able to show otherwise.
    Proportionately, it is the most promiscuous and plague riddled community.
    Did you know that homosexual males are 50 times likely to have AIDS than heteros and that cottaging in toilets is unique among homosexuals. They infest our public toilets and put holes in cubicle walls, peeping on innocents, sometimes minors..
