I live in Tennessee. I think that children have the right to decide their sexuality themselves, and I think that around 7th and 8th grade is when they really begin to figure out their view on a significant other. I believe schools need to discuss this issue with the children instead of basically making them live a sheltered life without knowing their options. I think children should be informed about homosexuality so that when they encounter someone who is homosexual they will not be entirely clueless about what that means. Meghan D.

I think this is stupid. If kids don't want their parents knowing they are gay yet, then don't force them. It's not healthy. Also, in middle school we talked about gay marriage or other things involving homosexuality for class. Our health teacher was a lesbian, and she was one of the nicest people ever and a good teacher. Even in English when we had to write an essay about a controversial topics, lots of people did gay rights. One of my friends felt like he was weird and he felt different for a long time because he was shielded from what gay really way and he finally felt better because he knew what was 'off' about him all this time. If kids are shielded, then they'll never know. Kids shouldn't be kept from this stuff. Meghan D.

That is so absurd. People can't help if they are gay. They are born that way. Meghan D.

this is really messed up. being gay is a decision that involves one person and it is who they are. being gay is not something you should hide.

There is no "age limit" when suddenly your old enough to be gay. My friend was in the beginning of 8th grade when she decided she was gay. So what? Just because she's not in 9th grade doesn't mean she can't be proud of who she is! This is just wrecking gay or bi kids self-esteem, which is already low from being different!

This is the exact way I was raised, but that doesn't mean my friends and I are anti-gay or there are no gays in our generation. I don't they should start a whole new gay cirruculum, but that doesn't mean people should pretend like it doesn't exist. Growing up in a Catholic school, homosexuality was never discussed unless pointing out the Church's views of it, which was always treaded lightly upon and with respect. My point is, someone like me who has never discussed homosexuality in school can still grow to be someone who supports gays and their rights, and like wise with a student who is actually gay learning to accept who they are. Also, discussing multiple sexual orientations with young students could lead them to be more questionable about their own sexuality, which can progress to become much messier later on. Gays should be respected in our society, but I don't think homosexuality should be presented to young students the same way heterosexuality is.

I think this is completely ridiculous. Who cares if someone is gay or not. Let them be them. Kids we eventually have to be "exposed" to this stuff anyway. There is nothing wrong with being homosexual. I know you are not necessarily "born" that way but you don't "choose" either. It's like a behavioural trait. If you grow up in a certain environment you will most likely turn our a certain way. It's like liking baseball. You partially chose and partial natural like baseball. It's the same thing with being homosexual. This is one of the lamest and most time-wasting bills I have ever heard of. And that says a lot. Meghan D.
