More worrisome than this quasi gag order is a new provision, which would require school officials to contact parents if their child is gay. Students would still be able to discuss sexuality with counselors, nurses and principals, but these authorities would need to notify parents as soon as they thought the circumstances required “intervention.”
While the wording offers some leeway, we think the entire situation is troubling. What do you think?

I think this bill is disgusting. People fear what they don't understand, and preventing people from understanding that some people happen to not, or not exclusively, be heterosexual could potentially increase occurances of homophobic bullying. Being forcibly outed to your parents/guardians could also result in getting rejected or kicked out- as a part of the LGBTQ* community I know many people who have been kicked out of their homes for telling their parents that they're not straight.
For those who feel that homosexuality is a sin- not every Christian believes this, and on top of that, there are many people who believe in different gods or no god at all, and so it's unfair to make laws based on one religion.
Finally, to those who think being gay is a choice- next time you're at school, choose to be attracted to a girl. You can't? Exactly. You don't choose to be attracted to who you're attracted to, and you shouldn't be discriminated against because of it.

I dont know, maybe they feel uncomfortable talking about sexuality in general with people who are in K through 8, maybe it isnt a gay or lesbian thing they just dont know how to talk to kids about sex. Its hard enough to learn about hetero sexuality, and maybe they think having to discuss gay male and lesbian female sexuality is also just tough. So maybe having to explain gay and lesbian sexual things and sexuality in general is just complicated for some people.

I'm 100% ok with homosexuals, I'm the kind of person that judges a person on their true personality, but this is kinda weird to me why would they keep teaching kids that being ur-self (if ur gay) is wrong and than do an intervention for it. I mean that's just mean, a lot like racism!!!!!

As I scrolled through the comments, it was so so so so so sad to see that 97% are for gay rights! :'(

Yes, god loves you just the same, but that does not mean he is happy with what you're doing or that u will be rewarded. What is this world coming to? :'( And no one is judging, we just don't agree with gays and bis 100%. And I'm not trying to be mean so please don't take it that way!!
