Would you mind if your school's head teacher was gay?

Someone started a thread on this topic a few days ago, and I was delighted at the tolerant attitudes shown. However, the thread's title didn't really say what it was about, so I'm not sure the OP got a full range of opinions. So I thought I'd try this and see what happens. Sorry to hijack your discusion, linney!

no, of course not

I didn't see the original thread but can't imagine why anyone would care what the sexual practices of their head teacher were provided they didn't involve children.

No, why would it be anything for me to 'mind'? None of my business.

None of my buisness. Why on earth should I 'mind'?

no, not at all.

EffiePerine Wed 23-Jul-08 09:28:22

why would I?

No, of course not.

Not in the slightest.

She may well be for all I know - I haven't asked her.

Not at all. Although I had a number of male friends who were gay and taught - they were terrified of it becoming common knowledge which I thought was very sad.

I can't imagine why it would be any of my business and no it wouldn't even occur to me to be bothered.

I find it slightly odd to ask the question tbh. Cant imagine that any sensible person would actually say 'no i dont think gay people should be allowed to be headmasters'

No I wouldn't mind.

And I'm interested to know why anyone would have a problem with it. (Obviously if it's a religious school the governing body may have, but individual parents, why?)

agree with ninja it just wouldnt occur to me to be bothered1 in fact i dont think i would even pause to think!

my normal reponse when i get told that some one is gay is "so?" which i do genuinely mean. its none of my business or concern who people choose to sleep with in their free time.

No. On what grounds could it possibly be relevant?

GooseyLoosey Wed 23-Jul-08 09:40:07

Not per se - nothing to do with me.

However, I would mind if they brought their sexuality into the school and class room (in other than an educational sense) in just the same way as I would mind if a heterosexual teacher did this.
