Primary schools ‘should celebrate homosexuality’ And They Are!  Surprised?  Thought not.

So the subject of abnormal behavior can only be celebrated. What next?  I don’t think I wanna know.
This is no longer a sane world ppl.

Primary school classrooms should be a place where “queer sexualities are affirmed and celebrated” in order to stop homophobic bullying, educational researchers have said.

In a seminar at Exeter University this week, researchers from the No Outsiders project will discuss “pleasure and desire in educational contexts”.

No Outsiders is a taxpayer-funded organisation which aims to stop bullying and prejudice aimed at homosexuals. The project currently operates in 14 primary schools.

In documents prepared for the seminar, project leaders have set themselves a goal of “creating primary classrooms where queer sexualities are affirmed and celebrated”.

“The team is concerned to interrogate the desexualisation of children’s bodies, the negation of pleasure and desire in educational contexts, and the tendency to shy away from discussion of (sexual) bodily activity in No Outsiders project work.

“The danger of accusations of the corruption of innocent children has led team members to make repeated claims that this project is not about sex or desire - and that it is therefore not about bodies.

“Yet, at a very significant level, that is exactly what it is about and to deny this may have significant negative implications for children and young people.”

During the project, the seminar paper says, its members have “challenged each other to go beyond imagined possibilities into queer practice”.

The seminar will “question the taken-for-granted of the supposedly sexless, bodiless and desire-less primary classroom’ and examine ‘the place of the research team members’ own bodies, desires and pleasures in this research”.

Section 28, the law which banned the promotion of homosexuality in state schools, was repealed five years ago. Current guidance on sex education says it should not promote sexual orientation or sexual activity.

The No Outsiders project is led by researchers from Sunderland University and is backed with £600,000 of public money provided by the Economic and Social Research Council.


The group uses books, puppet shows and plays to teach children about same-sex relationships.

(well heck. why stop there? why not show the full monty and have porn movies. hey, how about live theater for the kids. these folks are plain stupid and maybe crazy as well. learn to “celebrate” queer and abnormal behavior?)


Project leader Dr Elizabeth Atkinson said the seminar had no connection with No Outsiders work in classrooms. “The seminar is part of a long-standing academic debate and has nothing to do with schools,” she said. “It has no connection with sex education.”

However, the proposed seminar has attracted criticism. Patricia Morgan, author of studies of family life and gay adoption, said: “The proposal is that primary school classrooms should be turned into gay saunas. This is about homosexual practice in junior schools. The idiots who repealed Section 28 should consider that this is where it has got them.”

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
