    No.

    And I don't want to justify it either.

    Absolutely, and while I support the right of parents to discriminate in this matter, I can't understand why anyone would.

    No, because I don't want a daughter at the moment, or a son in fact.

    I'd only trust my child to either someone with a complete and recent CRB check, or a trusted friend or family member, and being male doesn't preclude either of those.

    Completely agree, you just can't trust anyone really these days.

    Please, please never just rely on a CRB check to determine whether somebody is trustworthy for leaving your child with. You don't know how futile the checks are.

    Well you can't have it both ways- if you say something offensive, you're gonna get **** for it. If someone else said something like a "I wouldn't let my children with a BLACK babysitter" what do you think the general reaction would be?
