A video produced by the BBC of some very controversial writing practices is making the rounds on social media, and many are fuming.
The video depicts children in a UK school as young as six, writing hypothetical love letters between “Prince Henry” and his servant…”Thomas.”
The Blaze reports that students at Bewsey Lodge Primary School in Warrington, Cheshire, are doing the writing exercise all in the name of, naturally, “diversity.”
The students’ teacher, Sarah Hopson, told the BBC what was happening in the video — which, at the time of this writing, has been viewed more than 180,000 times.
“This class of 6-year-olds is learning about gay marriage. In this fairy tale, the prince wants to marry his [male] servant. And the children are writing a love letter,” Hopson said.
She noted that she believes it’s important for children to learn about gay marriage at such a young age because those same children would “go out into that world and find this diversity around them, and they’ll find that out at a young age as well.”
“[T]he more [children] can be accepting at this age, you’re not going to face it further on, because the children will be accepting now and will be accepting this diversity around them,” she added.
According to Bewsey Lodge Primary School’s website, the school teaches “PSHE,” which stands for “Personal, Social, and Health Education.” Under the PSHE umbrella, topics like transgenderism, sexuality, and relationships are discussed. PSHE is taught from nursery age to year 6. Additionally, the school has “non-gender-specific” uniforms.

Many might argue it’s entirely inappropriate for children to be writing hypothetical love letters between any type of couple, let alone something as controversial as a same-sex romance.
Of course, the bar for what’s appropriate for young children seems to drop dramatically when there’s LGBT acceptance involved.
This seems to be right up Bewsey Lodge Primary School’s alley, as they’ve been awarded in the past for their pro-LGBT lesson plans:
In June, the school received an award and became the first school in the region to win a LGBT+ award.
According to the Warrington Guardian, the school received the “Educate and Celebrate” Best Practice Gold Award.
The award was for tackling “homophobic, biphobic, and transphobic bullying in schools,” according to the outlet.
Tell me, do schools ever get awards for reinforcing traditional values to students?
Are there curricula targeted specifically to avoid gender confusion, affirm biblical morality, and teach the statistical benefits of raising children in a man-woman marriage?
There are…but they’re typically homeschool curricula.
In case you ever wondered why so many people are flocking towards homeschooling…
