    AIDS is not the first nor will it be the last STD. Back then pregnancy was the worst thing that could happen. It destroyed lives.

    To assume that a parent is just too stupid or ignorant to teach their kids about sex is wrong.

    I intend to answer any questions my son has honestly. No embarassment on my part.

    This is a standard anti-gay talking point... indocrination. Nothing but absurdity. Academic issues are informational and can encompass a variety is subjects, ranging from math, to science, to art, to history, to sexuality. It is hard to imagine not being able to see that academics go beyond the "3 R's".

    What were you thinking of in those grades?

    I compare this to teaching a kid how to drive.

    Elemantary kids don't need to know about it at all. Junior high maybe just the basics like the biology. Advanced discussions are saved for high school where the kids are old enough to actually drive the car.

    Middle school is either 6-8 or 7-9, but thats a non issue. When I was in middle school (6th grade) people were doing sexual things . My first sexual experience was when I was 11.

    I am not sure lpast. Didn't the doctors trace the original strain back to patient A which was much later than your timeline?
