Children don’t need to be forced educated about lgbt. to satisfy the wims of Marxists, liberals etc, is not a good enough reason. Rebelling against conservatism by introducing counter conservatism doesn’t reduce it, just makes the water more muddy.

I would agree if you're talking about intervention, if parents were doing something illegal that would justify real intervention by the law. We're not talking about that though, just not colluding with parents who want their children to grow up ignorant of any opinions other than their own.
What business is it of mine if you have a different view on life, nothing. LGBT are adults too, man children or not everyone makes their own choices in life, trying to force children to not think something that everyone else thinks is futile anyway since most children think on a groupthink level anyway. Let children figure it out for themselves, if they don’t then they don’t.

While some claim that its fine to lecture children on these topics, their friends elsewhere are in a censorship rage

Little Red Riding Hood banned from Catalan school in sexism row

Fairy tales such as Sleeping Beauty and Little Red Riding Hood were deemed too “toxic” for children under the age of six and have been permanently removed from the library at Barcelona’s Taber school.
One third of the titles - 200 books - were considered “toxic” and had to be removed from the shelves, while another 400 books were felt to contain gender stereotypes but were allowed to stay in the library or there would be little left to read.


So children must be told about LGBT but cannot be allowed to read little red riding hood..... What a brave new world!

Perhaps it's not such a bad thing if they do realise that the water is a bit muddy, that there's not just the clear picture according to the whims of people on the scale from traditionalist to bigot.
Why are these lessons any more 'forced' than any education?
There is also a lot of casual talk about them learning 'about LGBT' as though they were studying details of various sorts of sexuality, that really does not seem to be the case.

The version of ,, Little red riding hood '' that most people know is not even that dark. Early versions of that tale hundred years ago were much more dark and powerful.

We are talking about 0.0001% of the population here, who are gaining about 50 % of news-space. Same thing happened with "Gay" rights. Just ignore it. That will make them fed up.

Best way to combat gender stereotipes and sexism: burn at the stake or imprison all women, who still act womanly and inspire men to act manly.

LGBT folks should form defense groups worldwide where they could receive arms and training...especially in any countries with laws against LGBT.

Imagine waking up in a country and the law says you can not be what you are in your heart and soul...its probably the worst crime in our world.

One of the most common stereotypes against LGBT is that these folks are so called feminine. Well some are actually so called masculine. Even with the so called straight folks there is great diversity.

Anti LGBT folks have a flawed view. Anti LGBT imagine there child being taught by a gay man or lesbian women...or a Transgender that will somehow turn there kid into being gay. Its no different then a Muslim not wanting there kids teacher to be Christian, a Christian wanted there kids teacher to not be Jewish. LGBT folks have every right to be teachers, and its a crime to prevent for example LGBT folks from teaching. Further in a world where upon in some countries being gay can get you executed....we can see that its important to teach LGBT lessons to kids at a young age not the sex parts but the acceptance part is simply common sense. IMO its a crime when an adult advocates that children should not be taught to accept LGBT folks as equals.

Two separate issues. Many LGBT folks are in love with the tales of the past. Some LGBT and non LGBT for numerous reasons do not like Little Red Riding Hood, Bugs Bunny, Walt Disney and all sorts of childrens books or fantasy tales like Lord of the Rings. One of the prime anti LGBT arguments is that LGBT folks dislike otherwise well received stories or literature from history. Bottom line is not all LGBT folks view Little Red Riding Hood or similar literature as being of poor taste.
