Here is the female trainee minister who banned a five-year-old boy from an after school club for wearing frocks – dressed as a 118 man complete with a fake MOUSTACHE.
Bex Venables kicked youngster Romeo Clarke out her church-run club saying his choice of princess dresses did not “match his gender.”
He was booted out of the Buzz Children’s Club in Rugby, Warks., after Ms Venables told the youngster’s mum Georgina, 36, he was “confusing” other children.
But the blonde trainee minster and children’s and community worker appears not to practice what she preaches – which this picture of her in fancy dress clearly shows.
The snap, on the 25-year-old’s Facebook page, is taken outside the Rugby Christian Fellowship church and shows her sporting a handlebar moustache.
Romeo’s mum fumed: “How hypocritical is it that Bex can tell me my son not to wear girls’ clothes and then pose dressed up as man?
“It’s complete double standards. If she says it is confusing for children seeing Romeo in a dress surely it would be just as confusing for kids to see her with a moustache.
“She’s a trainee minister but seems completely unable to practice what she preaches.”
Romeo – who has three older sisters – has a collection of 100 dresses and eight pairs of girls’ high heels which he likes to wear every day.
But he was booted out of the club three weeks ago by Miss Venables.
Yesterday she stood by her decision, saying: “Romeo Clarke is still allowed to attend
Buzz Children’s Club but has simply been asked to wear clothing of the gender stated on his registration form, which states male.
“Buzz seeks to follow our usual safeguarding guidelines and we did so in this case in order to avoid any confusion or possible conflict or teasing from other children.
“The decision was made in the interest of the child and there was no other motive or agenda.”
