Stuart Townend (headmaster)Stuart Townend (athlete, educator and politician) – He was a multi-disciplinarian. There are arguments related to master, mistress sexism within use of terms such as headmaster and, in the article, the credited is that "He was the first headmaster to educate an heir to the British throne." As an educator he was not always headmaster. There is no problem with presenting explanatory disambiguations for multi-disciplinarians. The subtitle of the Britannica article for the greatly esteemed Arnold Schwarzenegger reads "American politician, actor, and athlete". From article content Stuart Townend is not mostly noted for his teaching. GregKaye 10:25, 28 March 2015 (UTC)

Oppose: Not necessary to add further disambiguations per WP:CONCISE. However if Townend's role as an athlete or a politician was demonstrated to be his most notable role I would not oppose a move to Stuart Townend (athlete) or Stuart Townend (politician). 'Educator' doesn't seem a good choice I don't think that Townend is known for being an educator in general but rather as being a headmaster (due to the connection to the Royal Family). If however the main concern is that the current disambiguation is sexist then an alternative would be to use 'headteacher' which is neutral. Ebonelm (talk) 15:30, 28 March 2015 (UTC)
