But there were and the judge (gay) knew it, why else would he be involved? He made that clear by admitting the classrooms would be empty on those days.
And which "judge (gay)" was that?

The latest report from the CDC says the HIV rate for young gay males is going through the roof. In places like Baltimore, for example, almost 40% of MSM men and boys now have HIV. In other words, in Baltimore male-to-male sex is a morbidly unhealthy behavior.

So what are you people doing in our schools telling children homosexuality is safe and normal?

How can it possibly be normal if one out of three people who do it are dying from it?

And, please, no ignorant comments about African HIV. Thirty years after the most intensive safe-education campaign here in the U.S., you fellows still haven't figured out a way to have your precious anal sex safely.

In fact, it would appear African gays have -- they're not getting HIV!

I ask this question again: What are these sex cultists doing in our schools teaching our children their morbidly unhealthy behaviors are normal and safe?

The jury is in. We've got 30 years of CDC stats that show male-to-male anal sex is virtual suicide. In Baltimore almost 40% of males who engage in it are HIV carriers.

When does this madness stop?

Being gay is not something that can be chosen or taught, but practicing safer sex IS.

Every one of those gay kids in school will need to make choices int heir lives. And they will make better ones if they are not harassed and marginalized, and will make even better choices if they are knowledgeable and well informed.

You seem to be forgetting that gay women have one of the lowest incidences of HIV. If homosexuality itself were the cause of the disease, wouldn't that be the case?

And it isn't, of course.

YOU want gay youth to be ashamed of themselves and hide. YOU want them to have no access to information that may save their lives, and no mentors and role models to teach them responsibility.

And you believe that this will LOWER the incidence of AIDS?

That's just not logical.

Gary, why do you hate free will?

As to your second point, can you offer any proof to support your drunken boast?

Libraries, book stores, the internet, their parents. Access to information is widely available and free. Parents should teach them responsibility. In the public elementary schools kids should just be kids. YOU are the person that would like to divide gay and straight, give special attention to gay kids that don't even know they're gay yet and force straight kids and families to participate. Counterproductive.

Ignoring gay kids won't make them go away. It will only put them at greater risk of harm.

ALL kids should be taught in school to respect gays & lesbians, just as they're taught to respect heteros. ESPECIALLY those kids who are taught at home that discrimination is okay.

The problem is the anti-gay parents who insist on teaching their kids it's okay to discriminate against gays & lesbians.

Where did I say that parents could not BE that mentor? I would never even HINT at such a thing.

But who will be that teacher and mentor to a child that has a parent like you? Someone has to step up and walk alongside that GLBT child, when their own parents abrogate their responsibility out of fear, ignorance, or misplaced religious fervor.

Society in general, and schools in particular need to re-reinforce these positive messages whenever possible. For children with active and responsible parents, this causes no harm. For parents who are not, then their children will at least have SOME exposure to skills that will allow them to live in society.

Seems you've arrive in the 4th quarter with less than 5 minutes to play. Many if not most kids have friends or family that are Gay/Lesbian and they love and respect them.

So exactly how do we find these Gay kids who don't know they're Gay yet? Do they wear name tags or do we have aura readers that find them for us and send us their addresses?

You are nothing but a foolish bigot that wants to drag Gay and Lesbian kids back to the 1950s mindless to the FACT that thousands of the have committed suicide all because you and your demented, ill advised ilk think you should keep the key to the closet hidden from them. All those deaths rest right on your shoulders. That a mighty large weight given your age and prospects for living much longer. Hate harms the immune system.

Teaching kids about diversity harms no one but bigoted parents who want to train kids in how to hate. Messages being delivered are considered age appropriate by knowledgeable educators. Get over it and stop "over accusing", it only make you appear bigoted. No one is targeting Gay kids, all kids are learning each person is deserving of respect regardless of who or what they or their parents might be.

And you know they don't even know yet because of what information princess?

And exactly how is acknowledging that there are families with mom and dads and families with two dads giving "special attention" to the latter? Specifics please on how this "specialness" is demonstrated.

What activity is it exactly that straight kids and families are being forced to participate in.

The only think I see as counterproductive is trying to brainwash children that only one type of person and one type of family exist, since that isn't truth. Funny that someone who spends so much time working to represent things as they aren't is now worried about being counterproductive. Nice try Sally, but that was an epic fail on your part.

Feel free to try again though. We all know how you fundie bigots like to pretend you have numerous arguments, when in fact you don't have one!

Acknowledgement is no problem. Teaching it is another matter.

Special attention:
GSA's
GLSEN
Gay day of silence.
Gay pride days.
Elimination of father/daughter dances in RI public schools.
Elimination of mother/son ball games in RI public schools.
The teaching of select gay history in CA schools, select because they don't want the whole story told, just whatever positive stuff there may be.
