Good question. Can you define "common sense" in this context?

Is it something more than just your personal preference?

Idiots will lose because school districts may include or exclude any materials they choose, for any reason they choose. Go back to suing over religion, ACLU.

I'm sure the ACLU has already had those removed. It's presumptive of me, but my money says you'd be hard-pressed to find a bible on the shelf of any public school library

Bible is in schools and public library self along with web access. In fact other religions had to SUE to get non Christian books on self and web access to their religion. I find in public library their is MORE Christians books then any other religion. Next is no surprised Jew and Muslims both come in second along with Buddhism and other Asian beliefs, third comes new age, fourth other religion Navite American, Wiccan/Pagan, world religion and belief's that not the the thirst three along with atheist.

It's just confusing. To adults, not children. Kids don't have a problem with "my two dads" or my two moms". They just see it as two people who love them, and go about their day.

The un-educated will see this as an opportunity for kids to "learn" how to be gay.

Homosexuality can't be taught or influenced upon by education, books or classes. During the past several decades, scientists have discovered some interesting patterns that may point toward genetic causes of homosexuality Among the findings is that male homosexuality appears to be inherited more often from the mother than the father. Also, natural selection might maintain a gene that may decrease the fecundity of one sex because the same gene also increases the fecundity of the other sex. In fact, recent data shows that female maternal relatives of gay men have higher than average reproduction capacity.

understand , but when do we begin... children who can witness two of the same engaged in emotion may not be able to know there is a difference
