Two parents on This Morning have come under fire for removing their child from school because of a trans pupil.
Nigel and Sally Rowe revealed plans to sue their children’s school because a fellow child in class has been allowed to wear a dress to class.
The angry couple told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield that their son came home one day and expressed his confusion over his friend coming into school and wearing a dress some days.
“We were concerned because it’s very confusing, and how do children deal with that,” they explained.
These children are six years of age, and we’re worried what impact that can have on the other kids and how they deal with that. That’s what our concern was.”
“It comes down to being a child and the statistic is 98% of people who get like that when they were younger turned out not to feel like that when they were older,” they claimed.
Things got even worse when the couple shockingly appeared to compare trans people to animals, saying it comes down to “species disphoria”.
Actually outraged at these parents thinking they can dictate to others about trans children. #ThisMorning

It absolutely disgusts me that in 2017 we still live in a world where people think it’s ok to show such discrimination #ThisMorning

It comes just a week after Good Morning Britain was slammed for allowing a gay cure supporter to appear on the show.
Conversion therapy involves counselling people to ‘reject’ their homosexuality and live straight lives. LGBT+ people may be forced to undergo the therapy, or feel that they have to due to religious views.
Dr Michael Davidson appeared in order to discuss recent findings about the practice of the therapy in the UK.
