Mum complains about LGBT lessons, is met with teacher wearing pro-LGBT shirt
However, when the Christian mum went in to complain, the headteacher’s daughter, who is also deputy safeguarding manager at the school, walked in wearing a hilariously sassy shirt.
She came in wearing a shirt that said: “Why be racist, sexist, homophobic, or transphobic when you could just be quiet?” according to The Sun.
The angry mum told the Mail on Sunday that she believes the headteacher’s daughter’s shirt was “intended to belittle my views and intimidate me into silence.”
The school responded by saying that the choice of shirt was purely coincidental, and that the headteacher’s daughter meant no offence.
‘Promoting gay lifestyles’
The controversy began in June when Heavers Farm Primary School in South East London held a “Proud to be Me” parade.
The angry mother allegedly wanted to keep her five-year-old son out of the event as it contradicted her values by “promoting gay lifestyles.”
She said that children at the school were “being indoctrinated with values that they do not need to be taught at such a young age.”
She kept her son at home while the parade went on, but later said that she felt the school had not accommodated her beliefs.
The mother also hit out at the school for reading children a book about gay penguins – presumably And Tango Makes Three, a 2005 children’s book that has been the source of significant controversy for its depiction of same-sex relationships among penguins.
