A teacher who has been described as Britain’s strictest headteacher, Katharine Birbalsingh, has claimed that children identifying as cats wear ‘ears’ and ‘tails’ in class.
According to Dailymail on Wednesday, Birbalsingh stated this while speaking at the NatCon conference about the future of conservatism.
She said, “Do you know that some kids identify as ‘furries’? Elon Musk is correct, you all have no idea just how bad things are in schools and you ignore the vital and crucial roles schools play in shaping our society’s culture.
“There are kids right now, in some schools, with tails and ears pinned to their heads and bottoms. This isn’t fancy dress, they identify as cats, you see.
“Kids aren’t allowed to wear trainers to school but they are allowed to wear ears and tails because that’s their chosen identity. That’s how they feel they belong. Adult authority is long gone.”
Her comments come after a teacher at Rye College in East Sussex, reportedly branded a pupil “despicable” after she refused to accept a classmate’s claim that she “identifies as a cat.”
