PRO TEACHING

Opinions

  • not born trans/homophobic
  • learning early

Help

  • understand
  • Amanda Spielman, ofsted chief inspector: "it's about making sure that children who do happen to realise that they themselves may not fit a conventional pattern to know that they're not bad or ill"

Hetronormative socioety

  • scary without the homo/transphobia

Fined-disgrimination

  • giving an opinion without understanding-fined
