Let us all agree on this simple truth.
Okay so, this morning I was eating my weetabix minding my own business when, on the side I saw my younger sisters UCAS application. I decided it might be a bit of light morning reading so I had a gander. After reading all the usual boring bits such as name, address etc. etc. I saw the Sexual Orientation field. my initial reaction to this was confused anger, I then tried to tell myself that it obviously wasn’t for any discriminatory purposes, quite the opposite. It would probably be used to ensure that institutes met a quota of students from minorities *eyeroll*, but we’ll come back to that. After spending the day with this niggling at me I’ve worked out exactly really ground my gears about this being a field on the UCAS application, so, if you’ve got a moment, here we go.
