My Intolerant Intolerants


A selected group of London parents who took their children home to avoid Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Week are being prosecuted for failing to ensure their child to attend school. While I'm all for advancing equality for LGBT in all aspects of the world, but I don't think responding these parent's intolerant actions is to be intolerant. 

Sure, the parents are depriving their kids of a better understanding which can lead to more bigotry in the world, but the children in question are legally under the teachings and way of life of their parents. We can only provide as many outlets we can and regulate harmful actions. Like many different groups in sociality (religious, racial, social...), the LGBT community not displaying equal counter actions is generally better for its reputation and would only promote a better apprehension.
