I filled it in and raised some of the same issues as you about same sex relationships and also made it clear that I would be very unhappy about orgs like GIRES or Mermaids having any input.

I think more discussion about same sex relationships from KS2 onwards is an important part of challenging gender nonsense.

Yes it's been hugely damaging to the LGB, mostly the L. The biggest group of casualties in trans ideology are going to be young girls and women who would otherwise have been comfortable growing up as Lesbian. Attitudes towards lesbianism and the push for them to identify as pansexual instead and accept TIMs as partners I think is forcing a lot to think that becoming a 'straight man' is a better more acceptable option.

I think more acceptance and understanding around same sex relationships taught at a younger age could help combat this. Given that we now have marriage equality, sex ed in schools hasn't really caught up. I guess that is one of the points of the consultation.

I agree though it does unfortunately increase the risk that T issues will be covered in an unhelpful way. I'm not at all opposed to children having discussions about gender dysphoria and why some people feel they need to present as the opposite sex but given the guidance that GIRES etc.. have produced for schools I fear that is not the message they would get. It's all become about rigid stereotypes that hardly any children will neatly fit into.

I know a lot of MNetters have filled this in so hopefully if enough of us point out we want same sex education but find trans ideology regressive they might listen.
