Muslim Parents Victorious After Protesting School's Pro-LGBT Curriculum
There's no such thing as Christian privilege. There is such a thing as Muslim privilege. You know it, I know it, a school in Birmingham, England knows it, after they rethought their "No Outsiders" pro-LGBTQAAIP (to the power of pi) curriculum when Muslim families pulled their children from school in protest.
A primary school that taught pupils about homosexuality as part of a programme to challenge homophobia has stopped the lessons after hundreds of children were withdrawn by parents in protest.
Skip down four paragraphs in The Guardian's writeup, and you'll find this admission:
On Friday about 600 Muslim children, aged between four and 11, were withdrawn from the school for the day, parents said. The school would not confirm the number.
The Muslim parents must have banded together, had some chats over halal and tea, and decided little Ahmed and Mohammed wouldn't be taught that two men can make sweet love to one another without Muhammad (peace be upon him) striking them down dead right in the middle of their bedroom shenanigans of hide the meat stick.
Now if Nigel and Mary Giles had made the same complaint, had they banded together with other Episcopalian straight couples, you and I both know the school would tell them to get their minds right. Pro-LGBTQAAIP to the power of pi is about love, acceptance, growth, tolerance, and the future of Great Britain. Diversity of sexual friction is our strength. Any white Christian who stands in the way of Pro-LGBTQUAAIP to the power of pi has no place in Britain, and can shove their crumpets up their backhoes.
But wait, because maybe the Muslim parents did a little more than have an afternoon chatterooni.
Andrew Moffat, who was awarded an MBE for his work in equality education, said he was threatened and targeted via a leaflet campaign after the school piloted the No Outsiders programme. Its ethos is to promote LGBT equality and challenge homophobia in primary schools.
Now you tell me what would've happened had the principal in any first world school, where mostly Christian families sent their little munchkins to be educated, had been threatened with leaflets. Would the school have rethought the LGBTQAAIP to the power of pi curriculum, or doubled down?
Rhetorical question. As it stands, Muslims have the most privilege. LGBTQAAIP to the power of pi members fall at a distant second. Then "women and people of color" followed by women of not color, and not even making the list, straight white men who should be ashamed of themselves.
