    To suggest that there are two sides of debate in the homophobic bullying problem is to be a homophobe.

    Methinks, the debate in which there are two sides is the one where the parent of the child to be excluded thinks that having the talk in the child's absense will paint a target on the child's back.

    Not a very intelligent debate admittedly, but not an act of homophobia either.

    I hope I'm correct in my speculation...
    Spot on imo.

    Ironic that the talk was about bullying given the reaction to it being cancelled or postponed. I wonder how the poor principle feels. Like a doormat I would imagine ...

    Very ironic that the first thing to go was reason itself...

    Still, I suppose in the fullness of time, when this is seen as the storm in a teacup that it probably is, it might well enhance the workshop.

    Christ I hope I'm not turning into an optimist.

    Well said

    Nothing has been said about that point that is highlighted
