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 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.
