I must admit I do hold some sympathy. Whilst I certainly do not condone homophobia I really dont think schools should be promoting LGBT propaganda for children as young as this.

But will the Muslims be able to do better at halting this mad rush to push sex (all types) onto young children than the Christians or atheists have been?

//Children are being told it’s OK to be gay, //
And so it is.
I think that children are going to meet other children with 2 mums or 2 dads and its right that they shouldn't feel that this is odd or bad. I think that its right that children should feel able to wear what they like and play with what they like. As a cis gender female I find it hard to understand what "feeling like a boy" or "feeling like a girl" means because I have only ever felt like me. I do accept though that just because something is outside my experience that doesn't mean its not valid.....As someone who is childless not by choice, I have never felt the pain and intense drive to bear or adopt children, that other women seem to feel....that doesn't make them or me right or wrong, just differing in our experience.
I would object to my children being taught issues concerning homosexuality.
I agree with the muslims.
Update on 'okay to be gay', straight lives matter, make sure they know and understand that too.
Someone has to teach children that it is fine to be yourself and that we are all different and if parents don't teach that then someone else has to.
//As a cis gender female //

aka a normal heterosexual woman.

Yes, I agree with those parents but not because their religious foibles should be respected, rather because I don’t believe in burdening young children with issues they can’t possibly understand. Adults who promote this sort of education for the very young are screwing with young minds.

Agreed Naomi, pretty much my feeling too.
No objection to the subject being taught, but I do think that 4 years old is too young for them to understand.

Yes Danny, as I put in the OP it is the age I have a problem with.
"LGBT - classes"? - what does that mean? instruction? seriously school is not a place for specific classes in this area. I remember in my school they occasionally touched on this sort of thing in RE but we never had a specific "class" on it. I sympathise with the parents, you send the kids to school to learn the basic subjects not for this sort of thing.
Jesus on a bicycle, just realised it's a primary school! Seriously out of order.
I resent being called normal!
It's Section 28 all over again. What the heck is "LGBT propaganda"? No-one is being told to change their sexuality. Just that it's OK if they are gay. Or bi, or trans*, etc.
And as a heterosexual woman I resent being labelled with the potty politically correct term 'cis gender'. Normal does for me.
Far too young to be taught about LGBT, imho. So, yes, i agree with the parents - who, according to the link, were not ALL Muslims.
naomi who labelled you? I didn't......you go right on being normal :)
Jim, //Just that it's OK if they are gay. Or bi, or trans*, etc.//

Little children should be allowed to be little children - not stuffed full of nonsense they can't possibly understand simply because some potty adult is on a mission to spread whatever it suits him to spread.
Woofgang, by using the term cis gender to describe yourself you’ve labelled all heterosexual women. I will certainly go on being normal. I’m happy with that.
Question Author
Too young at this age jim,
5 lessons a year telling them it’s ok if you want to be something other than straight - not got an issue with it
