Our schools exist to educate our children and to help prepare them for adult life, part of that preparation is teaching them to accept all kinds of people in society both straight and gay. Bully by narrow minded conservatives is the sole contributor of teen suicide in this country so I think a little lesson in tolerance is well warranted. because believe me if kids can't learn to get along in school they sure aren't going to make it in real life. What happens if they have a gay boss or a black boss or a women boss and they haven't learned tolerance...I'll tell you what their going to shoot off their mouth and get fired just like the bigot Mayor in Ohio who just lost her job for running her mouth about a gay police officer.

While that certainly is your right, it's going to make life harder and harder for you and definitely for your children. The world you grew up in is GONE and in todays world people are more progressive and accepting of others, so if your not willing to be then your going to exclude yourself voluntarily.
