The government should be forced to portray gay relationships in a positive light, teachers say, causing outrage amongst influential Christian charities.

The call on schools including a “positive portrayal” on same-sex relationships emerged as part of a motion on a debate for a “manifesto for a new government on LGBT rights in schools, which was being debated at the NUT union’s in Harrogate.

The motion, which was passed, calls on teachers to put pressure on the government to “make it compulsory that all schools’ sex education policies include a positive portrayal of same sex relationships”.

Campaigners have been calling on wide-range mandatory sexual relationship in every school. Under current rules, local council-run secondary schools only to provide basic sex education, including subjects such as Sexual Transmitted Diseases. There is no emphasis on a particular gender.

Christine Blower, General Secretary of the NUT union, said: “The NUT calls for all parties standing in the 2015 General Election to show their commitment to tackling the discrimination faced by both LGBT students and teachers in schools by following the ten point action plan outlined in the Motion. This includes making it compulsory for all schools’ sex education policies to include a positive portrayal of same sex relationships,

A question. Does that 10 point plan include positive portrayal of heterosexual relationships?

  1. No, heterosexuals are not a defined minority, they are the hegemonic (oppressor) class, thus the gamut of their potrayal is neutral to negative, rather than neutral to positive.

  2. Blower has by the way twice stood for the London Assembly for the London Socialist Alliance, a far-left group, a ragbag of trots and watermelons.

  3. So Much for Subtlety

    So in a generation we have gone from Section 28 making Gay recruitment illegal in schools, to a demand for Gay recruitment to be compulsory.

    Amazing.

    At some point Sharia is going to be the lesser of two evils.

  4. How long before we see a State school specifically for LGBT students staffed by LGBT teachers?

    It’s never about equality with these people, but special privileges.

  5. Not illogical, the sex education is intended to teach the kids not to look at the porn, and instead only have sex as a manifestation of a “committed relationship”.

    While most people were as entertained as I had hoped, one guy left as soon as the first sex scene began. When I followed him out to make sure we hadn’t made him uncomfortable, he assured me that it had not been offensive. When I asked if he was sure, he revealed that his new girlfriend insisted that he never watch porn because she considered it a form of infidelity. Ever the lady, I asked, “Then what do you masturbate to?” He revealed that masturbation too was forbidden because his girlfriend considered acting on sexual desire outside of their relationship to be cheating.

    -this is basically the Progressive view. Sex education is about teaching sexual restraint, on the neo-Victorian model.

  6. Will a positive attitude move on to positive participation – or else – rather like sports in the old days.

  7. Well, they’ve already been making non-muslims children be “muslim for a day”, so probably, yes.

  8. “The government should be forced to portray gay relationships in a positive light”

    How many years –if not decades–has it been since the state –via its official organ the BBC–portrayed them in anything else?

    When was the last time the media generally rubbished same— Mr Wint and Mr Kidd?

    …at the NUT union’s in Harrogate.

    Campaigners have been calling on wide-range mandatory sexual relationship in every school.

    Under current rules, local council-run secondary schools only to provide basic sex education…?

    This crap was written by the Telegraph’s “Education Editor”? It suggests that OGH’s oft-repeated assertion about its lack of sub-editorship is only too true.

  10. “Sex education is about teaching sexual restraint, on the neo-Victorian model.”

    If so, it isn’t working very well, is it?

  11. “At some point Sharia is going to be the lesser of two evils.”

    Throwing sodomites off the top of buildings is disgusting. All I ask is that sodomites stop seeking to normalise homosexualism by radically altering majority institutions like marriage, schools, the armed forces etc – which is part of the Gramscian long march through western institutions. In return, I am happy to be tolerant and accepting. After all, the least interesting thing about anyone is what they do with their genitals.

    I wonder if ISIS got a mention at the NUT conference – their takeover in 50 years or so is going to make this discussion irrelevant – the LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM community will all be killed – sad but true…

    School for LGBT pupils planned for Manchester

    “The first school in Britain for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people could open its doors within the next three years. Based in the centre of Manchester, the specialist state school plans to take 40 full-time students from across the area and will offer up to 20 part-time places for young people who want to continue attending a mainstream school.”

  14. @van_patten – “I wonder if ISIS got a mention at the NUT conference – their takeover in 50 years or so” – isis are not going to take over, they are small beer.

  15. Johnny bonk – perhaps I should have said a variant on ISIS could very well be a big player in European politics 50 years down the line – Muslim birth rates are 3/4 times that of non- Muslims and ultimately it is a numbers game. I have never met a Muslim who was anything other than at best lukewarm towards the ‘LGBT’ lifestyle in general – and they are not afraid to confront the Gay lobby head on – do we really think these ideologues can peacefully co- exist?
