Teachers are branding thousands of children racist or homophobic following playground squabbles.
More than 20,000 pupils aged 11 or younger were last year put on record for so-called hate crimes such as using the word gaylord.
One youngster was accused of being racist for calling a boy broccoli head and another was said to be homophobic for telling a teacher this work is gay.
Two primary school children were reported for homophobia after quarrelling over a rubber and calling each other gay and lesbian.
Those youngsters reported for petty offences at nursery classes included four in the London borough of Tower Hamlets and three in Hertfordshire.
In total, 34,000 nursery, primary and secondary pupils were effectively classed as bigots because of anti-bullying rules.
The school can keep the pupils name and crime on file.
The record can be passed from primaries to secondaries or when a pupil moves between schools.

Is this one of those satire sites?
When everybody is a bigot, nobody is. And that is pretty much what they are working towards.
Western civ has gone utterly stupid.
Really glad I’m on the downhill side of my time on this rock.
Your questions reveals you as an agent of Goldstein.
Report them to Toddlerrrrr Waaaaaatch!
—Your questions reveals you as an agent of Goldstein.—
Dang! Was I that transparent?
Someone is in big trouble
Didn’t Ted Kennedy start all this nonsense - then he went and croaked?
“More than 20,000 pupils aged 11 or younger were last year put on record for so-called hate crimes such as using the word gaylord.”
I vaguely recall teachers attempting to put an end to a certain playground game we called “Smear the Queer.” You know, the one where one guy is It and runs around with a ball avoiding tackles. Which sounds insensitive to gay people, but ironically being the queer was the funnest thing about it.
Close. Drudge has it linked from Alex Jones.
Some teachers are some of the biggest nitwits.......
It’s England - normal!
Now cauliflower brain - THAT’S BAD!!!
(Geez, our tax dollars paid for THIS?)
Eraser. You know, two nations separated by a common language?
Looks real, from the UK, and mentions the Labour Gov’t.
I REALLY hope they are talking about boots and not the other...uh...common use of the word rubber. For that matter, why would children be quarreling over a boot??? Unless there's a third meaning for rubber, I don't know of.
I found that bit of “English English” really funny, in this context, especially.
Lol...although it seems hilarious, in Britain a rubber is a pencil eraser.
This kind of Orwellian B.S. is a good example of the nanny state gone wild, with teachers in nursery schools labeling toddlers as ‘bigots’ and the government school bureaucracy keeping the alleged bigotry on the child’s ‘permanent record’. When citizens - and their little children - have to be afraid of their government, which is the case in Britain these days, all is lost. Lest we become smug, realize that the U.S. is very close behind. and like the Brits, this is because we, as a people, allow it to happen.
So Great Britain also has a great need for a thorough bitch-slapping of its “educators.”
At church last night, a youngster was telling us that he learned about bullying in school yesterday. According to him, telling another kid “your hair looks funny” is classified as bullying. I told my daughter we’re raising a generation of wussies.
No wonder “W” didn’t like the stuff...
You must be in NJ....
In fact, this whole thing has already started this school year in NJ with the new anti-bully laws. Everything is investigated and reported, database created for sure.
Well, it IS true that there are SOME truths that just aren’t spoken owing to good old-fashioned decency; like telling the teacher, “You’re a pathological liar and your Mother dresses you funny”; although absolutely true, it would be going beyond the pale to actually SAY it.
So, kudos to that youngster over at the church; SOMEBODY has to maintain American decency. God knows the leftists and their hellspawn won’t.
Thanks for the correction.
However, things being as they are, what grows in Britain seems to flower in the U.S. lately.
The same with marriage. It's their prime directive.
A rubber is a pencil eraser to the Brits.
“broc Obama” OMG. That is hysterical!
Well, now I know that my tax dollars didn't pay for the study, but several people around me find me a bit odd. Or, at least odder.
Rubber = eraser over there.... Oh. I thought they meant Agnes May Stratford.
LOL- good one, BenLuin.
Oops, meant BenLurkin.
Watched that movie about a week ago. Exactly what I was thinking about when I read the story.
The only thing to do is for parents to instruct their children to call their classmates anything they want. The paperwork alone will crash the system, and then every kid in England can be a bigot and in the same boat.
I feel really sorry for England today. I don’t know what happened to them.
England was once a great Nation. Now because of homo and muslim PC nonsense it becoming a 3rd rate Nation sinking into the hell hole
If these teachers went to the same High School that I went to, in MD, than their heads would explode. Calling something or somebody “gay” was a good amount of what you would hear at my High School. Of course, I wonder what the teachers would say when they hear that people using that word are actually using it in place of “dumb”.
I also wonder how many toddlers even know what racism and homophobia(which is the incorrect usage of such a word) is. I didn’t even know about those two terms until I was not a toddler anymore.
Delicious and nutritious.
Even though you are right about Western civilization...being on the “downhill side” of your time on this rock, doesn’t necessarily mean that you will be in “coast” mode for the remainder of it. God-willing, it WILL be for you...but it also shouldn’t be overlooked, that the days ahead may require more than what those on the “downhill side” may, or may not have left, to endure it with.
I’m very happy and fortunate to have lived the first half of my life during some of the last good years it seems.
I really do expect the latter half is going to hold some things I can’t even imagine.
I don’t know how much I can actually endure, I’ve got a bum ticker. But God willing, I’ll have the chance to die fighting.
Come on, who hasn’t heard the name-calling like metal-mouth or railroad tracks for braces, or four-eyes for wearing glasses, or how many other names called, seriously, I laugh at most of these names I was called in retrospect.
