    Maybe because that is the topic of this thread?

    How is it intolerable to want to remain neutral? You're really stretching here. Careful you might pull something!

    Is that the topic? That schools should teach tolerance particularly of homosexuality?

That is a bit of locking the stables after the horses have run away. It is far better to explain acceptable behaviour before bad things happen. If a student's beliefs cause them to reject friendship with another student who is seen as 'unclean' - fine, but those beliefs should not be allowed to cause physical or emotional harm to the other student. Tolerance should be seen as accepting the existence of others, particularly LGBT, nothing more.

    Those of one group don't have to like those others but they at the same time cannot be allowed to harm the others. Sometimes this must be taught to students, particularly when they are hearing bigotry and prejudice at home
    Of course, that is what student/parent handbooks are for. They outline appropriate behavior. The children take these home to their parents, and the parents sign an agreement stating that they discussed proper behavior with their child/children. Of course, on the first day of school, going over the rules and such other things is completely acceptable, so that should be taken care of then.

    And the answer would be that I'm not obsessed with it. I do not advocate according homosexuality some special status.

    No, but homosexuality apparently is, despite the obtuse thread title.

    They aren't mutually exclusive...so the poll is flawed from the start.
