Innocent. Bistander started this petition to UK Parliament

I, and thousands of other LGBTQ+ teens have been a victim to homophobia/biphobia and transphobia in UK schools. I have been; assaulted, called multiple slurs, thrown off of chairs, stabbed by pencils, and been subjected to other types of hate crime abuse and I want it to end. Most schools have had a reputation for not taking hate crimes seriously and I think they should. For the past 3 years in school I have been harassed by the same homophobe non stop. I think that people who commit these hate crimes should have harsher punishments, after all, it Is a hate CRIME. Being suspended or getting a slap on the wrist doesn't teach homophobes anything, it makes the bullying worse. Schools are known for not taking homophobia seriously and that HAS to end. More things should be put in place to protect LGBTQ+ students.
