LGBT lessons in schools

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.
