    I'm sorry lpast I don't get how educating children about sex is wrong. I certainly appreciate my educators trying to teach me about sex and trying to dispel any myths we had.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

We understand all and discriminate against none. I say screw off to you and stop talking about things you do not understand!
    At what age did your God Damned Canadian teachers talk to you about gayness?

    If that kid would just wait until High School, he could talk about it all he wants. I do understand the cut off. Most 11 12 and 13 year olds are too immature to handle the conversation to do them any good.

    I think society changes, and certainly the nature of sex has changed with the existence of STDs. Under such circumstances, I don't think relying on information from parents and friends is enough - kids need education, they can't just rely on BS myths like "it's safe if the woman is on top" and stuff like that.

    Thats an absurd statement more heterosexual kids kill themselves more than homosexuals...girls committing suicide for being villified on facebook...Homosexuals are not the only ones bullied abused and commit suicide actually the number is far less and coincides with the number of heterosexuals to homosexuals...try being obese in school and see how much abuse you get...
    So should schools teach fat kid tolerance, or ugly kid tolerance or stinky kid tolerance ...schools should be teaching reading writing and arithmatic

    The kid says it, other kids as the teach about it, legally the teacher can't talk about it and it get awkward.
