    Yep just looked it up there.

    Definitely something unfair about it then if someone is allowed to compete with higher levels just because it occurs naturally in their body.

    I know next to nothing about how testosterone is produced and by how much it could be lowered in trans females.

    I doubt the answer would be to allow athletes to raise their testosterone levels on ethical grounds and also whether females would want to take it.

    It's being brought into curriculum to highlight that even if people are different, you can easily be respectful and accepting of their differences.

    If you're an egalitarian then you should agree with it.

    It's definitely not going to be how it's reported in the right-wing press, where they act as if the teacher blasts 'Mika - Grace Kelly' and the kids get to run around kissing their pals and declaring that they've changed gender.

    Same for me. Biology and we all sniggered like six year olds when learning about reproductive organs at 13.

    Two years later loads of girls cutting about with unwanted pregnancies.

    Just had
    Sean they are starting this education on children as young as five and six, they should be playing with dolls and toy soldiers and left to develop.

    Call me old fashioned, but I just see this as wrong on so many levels.

    It would have been had the post you commented on not been written in such a crude way.
    Quite a few sports have them and some are challenging their participation to be in sports due to an unfair advantage of having higher testosterone levels prior to transition. I believe you do have to have the full operation to qualify in sports but also a maximum testosterone level. Which some
    sports have introduced for women who were born female.

    I'd agree that seems too early but I don't believe that's the case in Scotland.

    One of my pals is an assistant head teacher of a primary school and says that the LGBT education is very basic eg. Some people have a mum & a dad, some have only a mum or dad, some have 2 dads.

    The only issue I see with it is being taught by *some* * who have no idea about the subject other than what they are made aware of in the curriculun that they are given.

    I don't think it's just the higher testosterone advantage that trans woman have, trans women have a higher bone dentisty level than women especially if they transition after puberty. Male and female skeletons are vastly different.

    If lesbians don't fancy men then why do they use * that are in the shape of a man's *?

    Genuine question btw...

    Not sure about Scotland myself, but the article says this pilot scheme tested in Warwickshire with 80 odd schools is now being rolled out onto another 41, so it looks like it will be rolled out even further?

    There's a very wide gap in telling kids that some people have two Mums or whatever and teaching 8 year old kids how to *, I mean WTAF?

    Much of it is basically stopping gender stereotypes, such as girls don't play with boys toys and play their games and the other way round. Also kids should not be bullied for having same * parents or only one parents. Sadly it happens and it has a negative impact on our kids. I grew up at a time when as a kid you called someone you didn't like a puff or a *. I don't want that for my boy. Sadly you have people that don't like it spinning the truth saying we are teaching kids about homosexuality and the way some are talking you would think they were teaching 5 year old how to lube up before *.

    Fair. If it was financially viable then bringing in someone with an actual academic qualification in the field would be better than handing out a few books to a teacher whose expertise is in maths, to deliver it.

    They are not teaching kids how to have a *. Kids bodies change and or they discover things about their body that if you do feels nice (but they don't understand the sexual side). The schools teach them that us a private thing, don't do it in front of others and if someone does it to you please report it

    I'm scared to ask this but do you have a reputable source for this claim that 8 year olds are being taught masturbation? I find that completely ridiculous.

    Oh aye, things have improved but people are kidding themselves on if they think homophobia is a thing of the past.

    I was out with my pal who's gay a few weeks back in a pub, came back from the toilet and some drunk * was up in his face and asking if we were puffs. Bizarre as he doesn't act or look camp in the slightest.

    The guy was clearly insecure and was trying to swagger about intimidating folk, not just my pal. I stared him down and said "What if we are?" and he shat it and went back to sit with his bird.

    Not so long ago I would've burst him but I'm trying to suppress the angry basturt within but I'll never back down to a bigot. Challenging it is the only way things will change.
