The David Holbrook Story Ad Nauseum

Mr Holbrook is at it again. He has written to The Telegraph from his lovely home in Lustleight, on school sex education.

He is concerned about Gay Liberation taking part in sex education lessons in schools on ‘problems of sexual perversions.’

He suggests that these vile and ‘dangerous’ lectures will be illustrated, and allow the kids to watch ‘others in perverted sexual acts’ (by film presumably). He states that it is ‘very sick to sit and watch others in sexual acts or perverted sexual acts.’ It very probably is. Do the present sex education classes have this as part of the syllabus? Why then should information on homosexuality. His implication that it is designed to corrupt is not exactly proven.

The purpose of these classes is not for proselytising. They are to reassure and to present the subject not as abhorrent and something to be repressed, causing hang-ups, breakdowns and endless needless suffering, but as something to be accepted by both homo- and heterosexuals as one of the facts of life.

Perhaps it is too much to hope that Mr Holbrook will ever overcome his own hangups and stop the endless steam of bigotted letters to newspapers who should know better than to publish them.
