'Teach kids about same-sex couples' All children must learn about same sex couples regardless of their religious background, the head of Ofsted says. Hundreds of parents protested outside a Birmingham school against it teaching pupils about same sex couples and gender identity. Ofsted chief inspector Amanda Spielman told the BBC it was crucial children were exposed to differences in society. She said it was important children knew "there are families that have two mummies or two daddies". Cant argue with any of that. If only there was a vaccine that eradicated hate.
