This was brought to the internet’s attention after Mary Hitchman’s viral tweet. Where she seemed to hit a key with: ‘Things can be tough sometimes but at least we don’t have to do PE anymore’.

Or outright LGBTI-phobia.

But then sometimes an unstoppable force needs to meet an immovable object…

Oh PE. May we never get forced to do something we hate in the freezing cold with the worst people we’ve ever met, ever again.
