Why's it called a conundrum on Countdown when it's really just an anagram?

I'm a bit torn on the issue tbh.

 

I firmly beleive that kids should be allowed to grow up and work stuff out for themselves.

I also firmly beleive that removing the stigma that sourrounded being 'different' that existed when I was a kid is a fantastic thing and long overdue.

 

I can see wher the protestors are coming from, but without an in-depth knowledge of how the message is actually being delivered within the schools and what the rational behind the thinking is I can't really comment.

 

I do think that liberal mindedness and freedom of expression is something that should begin at home.

Because an anagram is a conundrum.

I wouldn't have said so. They don't really fit in with any dictionary definition of conundrum that I've read.

Nae conundrum. Leave the kids alone. The LGBT hypocrites like the mooth, wanting to be a lesbian but still wants to be mother but that takes men. You know the people the LGBT mob, hate. 

Stick to eurofeckingvision and leave parenting to mothers and fathers.

 

It's not about equality or teaching. It's about turning the tables on who they see as the bad guy. This won't stop until everything is destroyed and normality is abnormality.

 

I look forward to death

I hate Muslims more than I hate LGBT to be honest, so I'm on LGBT side (until they declare their own LGBT caliphate and start all that crucifying Christians and beheadding nonsense that is, then I'll probably have a conundrum).

I'd imagine if the problem/conundrum was Christian opposed in this instance it would be surprising to see the comments that have been posted.

 

Why can't people judge it without being racist?

Just because they are not white or Christian does not make it right.

I've yet to see anyone answer why the kids whose parents don't want them to take part aren't just punted into another room for 45 minutes to draw cocks on the desk or whatever.

I've yet to see anyone ask.

 

Seems fairly straightforward to me, although I guess the powers that be don't trust parents to be objective with their childs education when it comes to LGBT issues, and are using a sledgehammer to crack a walnut.

The Countdown ones aren't difficult problems, as such. There's no complex problem-solving skills required to solve them - simply the ability to reorganise letters. Some people can do it more quickly than others, but that doesnt make it a difficult problem. And the only question being asked is 'What nine-letter word can these letters be organised into?'

Of course it can but, again, this doesn't apply in Countdown's case. The question is simply being asked in order to see who is to be awarded points. It'd be a bit of a stretch to find that amusing, I'd respectfully suggest.

 

Maybe the 8 out of 10 Cats conundra have an element of amusement in them due to their risqué nature.

 

Sorry for being completely off-topic but I just wanted to explain my reasoning.

Because.

It's a right wing religious cult .

That's been allowed to dictate not only a labour party who are now viewed as ant Jewish.

But dictate the law enforcement.

 

Any labour party member who dares to question this right wing religious cult is racist.

The crazy thing about this is the education about LGBT is basically "Bobby can have two dads by the way"

So (for example) kids who do have same sex parents might actually have a less difficult time at school.

 

They probably also teach primary kids about wars and stuff. Doesn't mean the school are actively getting the kids to go trekking across Europe shooting Germans.

That's fine .

So if you are not aware what the point is perhaps theres no point discussing it.

Because boris youd be aware enough if it was right wing white people dishing out death threats.

Or Christian women hiding behind Klum Klux Klan sheets.

Or Christian whites whose kids dont even attend the school in question.

Point is very obvious.

Arf!

 

I see a conundrum in that there is a sign there saying that "we are not homophobic" but their actions are to try and prevent raising awareness that the world includes gay people (and all the other letters) who should not be discriminated against because they have not made a 'bad choice'.

 

Just like Muslim people, or Jewish people, or Christians or agnostics, etc. have not made a bad choice.

 

The conundrum is that the Muzzies would be claiming intolerance if there were anything to do with their faith but they're claiming that they're not being intolerant.

 

I mean, though: that head teacher wifie, she's made a bad choice with her shades; someone should tell her.

Well nah, because I'm fairly certain it doesn't say "thou shalt not let your bairns learn about the existence of sword fighting/clam jousting" in the Quran. So I'm asking if:

 

a) There was no provision for kids whose parents are against the lessons to go somewhere else (and if not, why not?)

or

b) These parents don't want ANYBODY to learn about the existence of LGBT people (because good ****ing luck with that ya dafties. :lol:)

Schools - especially primary - are for learning about maths, spelling, reading, geography etc. 

 

I was at my son's (primary 2) assembly the other day. The headteacher was banging on about having a growth mindset. FFS. Corporate fluff being directed at 7 year olds. I couldn't give a toss who puts their cock, fingers, tongues or ******s where they have consent to do so in their own time, but leave the sexuality/perversions/kinky stuff to home life. Much like the religion (interestingly, the song sung during assembly was a Christian song with the lyrics modified to be secular).

 

The aggressive liberal LGBT agenda community (nobody really cares who you shag) and aggressive conservative Muslim community (your women look like crap ninjas and your men are terrified of them) are both a bunch of wallopers. Tolerance need not mean active promotion or highlighting of lifestyles that, when all is said and done, are not the norm. If it comes up (oo-er!), then teachers should be confident enough to say that it's fine. Active teaching of anything beyond reproduction and what constitutes unlawful behaviour is not necessary in a state-funded institution.

The threats to the head teacher are abhorrent. No debate from me over that.

 

Are people allowed to demonstrate/publicaly disagree with the school curriculum? Of course they are. Within the law, obviously.

I didn't realise perversions and kinky stuff were part of the curriculum.  What kind of stuff are you referring to?

 

"Tolerance need not mean active promotion or highlighting of lifestyles that, when all is said and done, are not the norm." - so you wouldn't want your kid learning about disabilities or the like then?  Not that I am equating LGBTI as being a disability, rather your comment "are not the norm".

 

Does the curriculum actually go into the physical/sexual nature of these relationships?  I don't know, but I doubt it.  I assume, naively perhaps, that it is simply highlighting the great diversity that exists in our society and that people should be treated with respect and by who they are, rather than what they are.

Relationships education is going to be compulsory in England from September, not the sex education stuff, just relationships and at an age appropriate level, that is also meant to prevent (online) grooming and safety.
