I am just curious. I know there are a few Gay's on Adisc. I was just wondering if Gay's are against this just because of the name it has been given and the sensational media coverage or if they actually have read and understand the law and think it is unjust.
Here is the actual wording of the law...
(1) The general assembly recognizes the sensitivity of particular subjects
that are best explained and discussed in the home. Human sexuality is a
complex subject with societal, scientific, psychological, and historical
implications; those implications are best understood by children with sufficient
maturity to grasp their complexity.
(2) Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary, no public elementary or
middle school shall provide any instruction or material that discusses sexual
orientation other than heterosexuality.
So the way i understand it. It is referring to the actual teaching of human reproduction and physiological sexuality. And even though gay couples can adopt or use artificial insemination, i don't think any of them have actually conceived a child the "old-fashioned" way. So to me this law is justified in saying that it does not need to be taught in a lesson about sexual reproduction. And it is limited to Elementary and Middle School. And even though i know some have said they knew they were gay before middle school, i would think most middle schoolers have not yet made that desision nor fully understand that decision.
It does not Ban teachers from saying Gay as the media and the name it has been given suggest.
Just curious, your thoughts?

Please don't be offended or take this the wrong way. And i apologize if i did not use politically correct terminology. I have no problem with homosexuality. I just think that people are throwing this law way out of proportion. And that most just hear the title that the media has given it and make a snap judgement based on that. I would wager that most of those that are speaking out so negatively about it have never even read the actual bill.
Is there any need to have educational instruction on someone's lifestyle choice or sexual preference.
I understand the need to educate on Heterosexuality because it teaches how the body works and what all the "parts" are for.
But what is the educational point of teaching about Homosexuality?
