    and how many of them were due to the fact that they felt alone and were bullied v the fact that their sixth grade geography teacher actually made them learn all the states?


    i mean really, hysterics over the top much?

    Is that a serious question or are you just being a dick?

    i'll admit i'm torn. I don't know whether to use logic to expose your ridiculous hyperbole for the over the top hysterics that it is, or just utilize ridicule.

I just don't see the bill having a significant effect on the state.
    My boys are in that age group right now, and sex simply is not on the mind. They're at the point where they might think a girl is cute, and the ultimate level of intimacy is sitting next to her in class. They're not thinking about sex or anything of the rest of it.

    Now, if we want a homosexuality unit included in a general sex-ed class at the high school level, then sure I support that.

    Wait... kids aren't allowed to say they have two moms or dads? Or is this just saying the teachers are not allowed to teach little kids about homosexuals. By the way, when was this type of education taken away from the parents and put into the hands of school teachers?
