    I totally agree with you. I hoped for an intellectual discussion, instead I was met with complete dismissal and a load of ignorant remarks. Looks as though TSR isn’t a very inclusive place after all.

    I believe it’s not just gender/sexuality education that is in desperate need of reform in British secondary schools. Education in critical thinking and analysis is also in need of revision - society needs right-brained individuals who can think outside the box (and beyond the binaries one finds in a typical mathematics textbook). Attention, policy-makers.
    If you want an intellectual discussion, maybe think about writing more than a title and "discuss". Put forward your opinions, some material backing them up, some thoughts on potential points of weakness in your case etc.

    All very well and good being "right-brained" but maybe learn some social skills and debating skills to go along with it?

    Several points:
    • School is not a place for these political ideas to be taught, and yes they are political.
    • Am I right in thinking "right-brained" means "agrees with me"?
    • The idea gender-studies types encourage open-minded or critical thinking is ridiculous. They encourage conformance to one extreme opinion, and treat dissent with fury.
    I sense liberal-phobia.

    Ooh, very sneery.

    Anyway, I am a liberal, because I believe in freedom.

    You, by contrast, believe in indoctrinating children with your neo-Marxism in schools...

      Because TSR realised it would lose out on all the angry racist basement-dwellers who don't like people disagreeing with them.

      You’re very right, these angry racist (and sexist and homophobic) basement-dwellers seem to form the majority of the tsr population

      Ultimately no. You are a product of your environment and a lot of factors come into play (confidence, upbringing, social status which also differ depending on your gender) when regarding performance.

      Gender or sex, has nothing to do with it unless discussing physique.
