...and a discussion at the Students' Union under the theme "Challenging Orthodoxy". exploring why we might usefully challenge the current orthodoxy which states that male/female marriage need not be the basis of family life, that current sex education schemes are successful etc etc. Excellent contribution from Professor Brenda Almond pointing out the need to stick to biological truths. But, alas, students preferred to remain within the comfort-zone of current orthodoxies - so they all affirmed the value of lesbian parenting, "who says that heterosexuals make betters parents?" etc etc...afterwards some came up to me to say privately that they agreed with what Prof Amond had said. But they felt they couldn't say so publicly!
