    Homosexuality is a disorder any way you slice the pie considering homosexuality violates the laws of nature - the desire to reproduce (naturally)...

    From an anthropological perspective homosexuality makes no sense. Then again humans are not perfect.

    The teacher already said in a news report that her objective was "tolerance."

    Who the hell is she to tell individuals what and what not to tolerate? who does she think she is God?

    That teacher has no right teaching her morals and ethics to students - she isn't her students parent.... Teachers shouldn't be teaching hot button issues to kids that can hardly understand, and even if they do it's not her position....

    And if she had played a song about Jesus, the conservatives and fake libertarians would be lamenting about her freedom of speech.
    That is absolute nonsense - that is called "damage control."

    That pattern of running away from things considered offensive started due to christian protesting of anything non-christian like gays, atheism, jewish and muslim ideas, paganism, and even their hissy over prayer in school and god in the pledge. The continued objection and BS abuse of school boards have made them afraid to do anything so they decide to do nothing. They dug their own hole. it is like that town that removed the manger because christians pissed a hissy over an atheist message along side of it. The magnitude and annoyance of the christian response in the past to anything other than christian values has dug their hole.

    You can use the republican whine of PC over this, but this is CC gone wild here. Schools are afraid of anything controvercial because everything becomes a war to christians. Now, i cannot blame every christian for this as there are a number of silent non-vocal ones who simply do not confront their fellow christians about their hate, but they don't pitch fits because 2 guys hold hands either. Still the majority of christians, and their power structure, AKA the church, has made everything into a fight, and I don't blame the school for simply opting out rather than trying to mediate a crowd of religious adults acting more spoiled and bratty than any child they have to deal with.

    In other words there is a solution to this. chose your battles and stop pissing and moaning over everything and creating so called wars over everything. Let the atheists have their signs. let Chanukah and Ramadan have their place. Let kids sing songs about gays. If all these things are accepted then there will be a place for christmas. But if you want christmas in exclusion of everything else this is what you get.

    I've predicted it before...child porn will be mainstream in twenty years. The younger you sexualize a person, the easier it is to control them. And it's all being done in the name of free speech.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Well, if you ever wind up on a school board I would feel sorry for the teachers in your jurisdiction.

    Strange how we scientifically no longer view it as a disorder. That seems to undermine "any way you slice the pie" by at least one slice.

    I'm pretty sure cultural anthropologists have examined this quite at length in many cultures.

    Apparently so did the district and the school. The interpretation on when, where, and how to extend this tolerance is a matter of debate.

    You're hardly reticent in expressing your viewpoint that homosexuality is a disorder and unnatural regardless of any way someone wants to see it. I don't think your concerns really extend to responsible and respectful discourse in the public school system, so much as they do to extend conformity to your own viewpoint.

    I don't think that's particularly likely. These kinds of efforts are a far cry from child porn. Trying to get children to accept homosexuality as normal, is very different than allowing children to be exploited by child porn. I don't see any efforts, even from the most outspoken, to try and legalize child porn or lower the age of consent or anything like that.
