First of all, by "intervention," they mean straight camp. For one of my friends (he's gay) it was two weeks of reading bible verses and basicly being bullied into being straight. He HATED it, and it did nothing for him, or any of the guys from there he kept in touch with. All it did was lower his self confidence. If the "intervention" doesnt work, then the school forces you into the closet. ("In the closet" means not showing or telling people of your sexuality for those that dont know)
Second, I don't think teachers should be discussing ANY type of sexuality, hetro or not. It could make the students feel uncomfortable or pressured to change.
Lastly, I am bisexual (only my closest friends know). I would not like for my teachers to know, because I am sure that altough they wouldnt mention it, they would either a) think of me as less of a person or b) give me special treatment. I dont NEED that special treatmemt!
Thank you for reading.

Say what?!?!? That's totally ridiculous. No matter WHAT your sexuality, everybody everywhere has been taught to love. How is this loving? How is this accepting? How is this kind? The short answer: it's not. It's unfair and very discriminating towards people who are just like everybody else. I don't think that there should even be any question about this- teachers and students shouldn't be allowed to think like that in school

Ok, I know this is an unpopular opinion on here, girls life is democratic. But I personally agree with these laws. Teachers should inform the parents if they think they're gay, parents should know whats going on in their kids life. Not overly, but that kind of thing... and I agree with the heterosexual only talking about thing to.

I think this is very scary that they are actually considering this because the idea that a child would basically have to go into therapy if they are gay is absolutely atrocious and makes me feel sick to my stomach.

I understand the part of not speaking of homosexuality. As long as they dont talk about heterosexuality, either. But telling the parents if they think that a kids gay, that the dumbest thing I've ever heard of. So the kids gay, why does that matter? It's not a disease, it's not a crime, it isnt bad, it's a life choice. If the srudent wants to tell their parents, they will. Telling the parents is so unfair, and a breech of confidentiality between the kid and the person at school.

it's not like they're allowed to talk about religion with us either. it's only fair, i think.
I'm so glad I live in Tennessee

That is just incredibly offensive. I cannot believe they are even considering that. No matter if you're gay or straight, you should be loved. NOT outlawed or told you're illegal.
