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?

What the heck?!?! The worst part of this to me is calling authorities to discuss "intervention." What needs to be intervened? Basically its like saying that you can't be anything but straight. And it won't confuse kids. Love is love, and anyone should be able to love anyone they want. I think that's important to teach kids, along with the fact that they can have their own opinion and mind about serious matters. I'm a 7th grader in TN and some of my best friends are lesbians and no one cares. Its your choice and if your uncomfortable with it then look away. Saying you like the same gender shouldn't be treated like admitting to using drugs or carrying a weapon.

This reminds me of the article in Health and Fitness section where the males in some states government werent allowing one of the female representatives to talk about or mention the word "vagina". I know its not exactly like it but somewhere they are trying to stop people from saying vagina (which more than half of the world has one) and now they are trying to stop people from discussing gay and lesbian stuff.
I could see why you wouldnt want some people talking explicitly about homosexuality because it goes where people may feel uncomfortable but I am not sure if a ban is a good idea. Maybe it is if they get into explicit stuff, because that has happened in some schools where they were showing certain sexual things, but most of us by now kind of know about those things.

Excuse me, I thought we were in the 21st century! Literally, at school today we watched a video about a man who was bulied because of his sexuality through all of his years in school. Then, after he ran away twice, he sued the school's pricipals and vice principals. Long stoy short, the school had told him that being gay ment he should expect to be bullied. Thankfully, he won the court case. Anyways, in my opinion, if a school is against bullying, it should be against all reasons. If a school says it's wrong to bully because of a person's skin color, the same school should say it's wrong to bully because of sexuality.

teachers and the gov't should not be be involved in a person's sexuality. BY doing this they make people who are gay feel bad about it. If someone is gay, that's their choice. It's just the way they are. ANd by making them feel like being that way is wrong just hurts their self estteem becasue that's like saying their personality is wrong. The topic of an individual's sexuality should remain between them, their partner, their friends, and family.
