YOUR description of morality is from the receiver. I can provide information, but how you take it is on YOU. If I say, there are several types of sexual orientations, and you think, "hey, he's saying that all are morally equivielnt", that is YOUR perception, and has nothing to do with what I am saying. I can provide plenty of information. I am not responsible for how you judge or perceive it.alright, convince me. tell me about your sexuality curriculum which makes no moral weights at all including the weight of equivalency.
because that is a weight.
No, we are not arguing over whether it should be taught because of the moral implications. YOU are arguing that. I am telling you that is not the issue, that morality is separate from education. Some folk, erroneously, want to make it a moral issue.indeed it is precisely what we are discussing and the fact that we are arguing about it and that this has been a major argument in American culture for decades now rather demonstrates that I am correct - and that this is a moral issue.
I pay teachers to teach information that is useful. Sexuality is useful information. YOUR job is to teach the values of the information that is taught in school.i don't pay teachers to teach my kids about sexuality or it's role in society. that's my job. i hired them to teach the kids how to read.
Ah... reverting to the 'ole "reading, writing, and arithmatic first" argument, now. I disagree. Firstly, there is value in learning about sexuality, and culture and the arts, amongst other things. Secondly our educational problems are not solely the fault of the educational system. They are the fault of a combination of factors: the educational system, lack of parental involvement, and student apathy, for starters.when our school system becomes awesome enough at that that we don't have significant portions of the populace that are functionally illiterate, can't perform basic mathematical equations without aid, and have no understanding of our nations' history - then i'll re-listen to the guy who is also convinced that they will just do a super-duper bang-up job of handing sensitive material that touches on deeply-held beliefs. i will be unlikely to agree with him that school is the proper format, but at least I won't consider him a fool for giving one of our more important jobs to one of our failing institutions.
