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?

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.
