It's the same, old and very curious story .. most human beings think of sex as something indecent, a subject to be whispered about only .. This feeling was planted in human subconsciouness by a misconception of what Christian morals mean .. In past ages some people went as far as cutting off their genitals ( like Origen did ) .. In our far from healthy society we just cut off any spontaneous sexual impulse from our minds :. thus the widespread use of drugs and alcohol , palliatives to a frustrated, embarrassed existence .

No one should be anxious about raising awareness of new things in classrooms? What is new about homosexuality? The teachers are right, keep it out of the schools. It isn't about awareness, it's about re-education. Gays want to train our kids on what to think. School is a place where kids should be taught how to think, not what to think.

You can't "keep it out of the schools" unless you keep gay KIDS out of those schools. They are in those classrooms, and it should not be kept as some sort of guilty secret.

Yes you can, it's been done for decades. No little kid needs to know why Daddy dumped Mom for a guy.

My favorite line:
"Daddy's Roommate was one of the first children's books to portray homosexuality in a positive light."
See, Mom didn't turn Dad on as much as his gay friend did. He divorced Mom and went to live with his new bed buddy. You actually believe this is a positive message?
How about "King & King?" Made locally famous by a Lexington, MA family when their son came home from school with the book. It was assigned reading in a Lexington public elementary school. It's about a prince who wasn't turned on by any of the princesses. One day a princess showed up with her brother and the prince got aroused, he married her brother and they did what ever they do happily ever after. I have no problem with any parent buying these books or taking them out of a library for their kids to read but I have a big problem with this garbage being assigned reading in public elementary schools.

Right. Because kids never talk about these issues among themselves. Just like teens in Georgia won't get pregnant if you refuse to talk about premarital sex.

What you want to preserve is an environment where misinformation and prejudice prevail.

Literature reflects life as we actually experience it. You call it "garbage" only because you don't want children to be aware. Guess what: They're going to be made aware anyway. You may as well have discussions based on fact, directed by the teacher.

What I want to preserve is parental rights. Why do you fear kids talking to other kids?

Yes, they will find out anyway. It's called life. Schools should teach kids how to think, not what to think. The rest is the responsibility of the parents.

You're in such an uproar over students hearing the word "homosexual?" Where is your outrage over straight male teachers who have a "fondness" for their female students?

Did you even bother to notice the article has nothing to do with "American Society?" It is about the UK, you know, the "mother country." Of course, you probably thing god created America by waving a magic wand, just like he created Adam and Eve and the Talking Snake.

'Anti-Discrimination' Codes
Pro-homosexual activists also promote policies that forbid "discrimination" against students or teachers on the basis of "sexual orientation."
However, singling out "sexual orientation" for special protection (along with the usual categories of "race, color, national origin, sex, and disability") is illogical. The latter qualities are usually inborn, involuntary, immutable, and innocuous
Oh sick freeek, the law protects on the basis of religious identity, a choice.

And no one thinks you think islam is innocuous.

You're simply a sexually disordered gasbag who will spew any illogical lies you can as way to cope with those uncomfortable obsessions of yours.

You're disgusting. Real trash.

Hey gasbag, did you write or plagiarize that deranged offal?

You're right: It's getting harder for you homophobic bigots to be taken seriously. You're becoming more and more outliers. LGBT kids will increasingly become a non event.

Except to sexually sick, uber "religious" closet cases who are virtual, professional bigots.

Some of us are not interested in teaching gay kids that their sexual identity is "garbage".

Here's a MORE positive message: Mom & Dad wouldn't NEED to get a divorce, if young gay people were encouraged to be themselves as they become adults, and felt supported in pursuing a relationship with someone who actually SUITS them.

I'm so glad that hateful people like you are not succeeding in your efforts to educate children that gay people are "garbage" and should be treated as dirty little secrets.

Around here it's mostly female teachers and their male students. What makes you think I don't feel outraged about that? Where would it fit in on a thread about "gay concerns?"

You spend every eight hour school day defaming homosexuality itself on the basis of real or imagined facts which also apply (moreso) to heterosexual males without your similarly defaming heterosexuality itself.

Your faux outrage is highly selective, to put the matter mildly.

Also, you don't know anything. You're completely ignorant. Now go and enforce those unconstitutional anti sodomy laws from inside that closet of yours, moron.

So these 'teachers' need to go back to school and get their LGBT degree so they can continue working in their chosen profession
.
Otherwise; its the unemployment line for them; po'thangs

They'd learn more about the reality of LGBT if they spent a few hours in the men's toilet at the bus station.
