"What makes the situation seem rather odd is that Britain has had civil partnerships for almost a full decade and so far, not a single teacher has been fired for refusing to teach about civil partnerships that has come to the press." (from the article)

Fear mongering, especially when addressing teaching children about the realities of life, remains a major tool employed by those who wish to harm others needlessly.

How can a teacher refuse to teach about the law of the land? Can a teacher in the US refuse to teach about open carry laws if she finds them offensive?

Ignorance of sexual matters can only succeed in creating a nation of mental defectives.. A child SHOULD know about these things.. He or she shouldn't grow up with the idea that discussing sex is dirty, indecent, etc.; which is the usual tactic with teachers and parents who are thoroughly ashamed themselves of anything connected with sex or the word "sex".. It is exactly this kind of person who's responsible for sex-related crimes and, barring that, a life of self-recrimination and misery..
