A new scheme has angered many as it plans to question children as young as 11 about their sexuality without parental consent, in a bid to erase sexual orientation discrimination among adolescents.

People such as teachers, social and other youth workers are being asked to take part in a pilot scheme where they are to ask children from an early age about their sexuality and to keep what is said on record.

The idea behind the programme is to monitor adolescent sexual orientation and to help provide a constant port of call for those struggling with their sexuality and don’t see it as a passing phase.

Despite many being outraged by their children being quizzed as young as 11-years-old the paper states that studies show children as young as eight have already identified themselves as either lesbian, gay, bisexual or Transgender.




Conservative MP. Graham Stuart, chairman of the House of Commons Education and Skills Select Committee, reportedly branded the idea sinister and added: “School should be a place of safety, not a place where pupils are picked over for the purpose of some quango; and many children won’t understand what they are talking about.”

A spokesperson for the Equality and Human Rights Commission reportedly told the Daily Mail: “This is independent research produced to help the commission form its policy direction.”
