Australian senator: Kids shouldn’t have to know gay parents exist


Australian senator Ian Macdonald has said that people have the right to stop their children from learning about gay parents. Macdonald was chairing a Senate committee examining a bill which would ban religious bodies from discriminating against LGBT+ school students. During a session on Thursday (February 7), he said, “The majority of families… might not want their children to think about children with two dads,”. Macdonald, who has been a Liberal senator for Queensland since 1990, also asked the committee on Wednesday (February 6) for more consideration to be shown to children with straight parents.
