To the people demonstrating outside St Mary’s School, an unfashionable saying comes to mind: “I hate what you say, but defend your right to say it.”

So, if you disagree with their ideas, send your children to a non-faith school.


In the lesson you object to, how does the concept of ‘receiving' in a sexual relationship amount to misogyny?

Hysterical overreaction perhaps. Intimidating children at the school gates with inaccurate slogans insulting men does not further your cause.

You are just picking an easy target and polarising people.
