    The confused smiley is used because I find your posts confusing. It seems you keep trying to keep sexual orientation out of the curriculum. So let me ask you straight out to avoid further confusion....
    Grateful, Harshaw's posts have been perfectly understood by myself and others. Why are you struggling with this so much?

    Do you believe that public schools should introduce the subject of sexual orientation and/or homosexuality at any time in a sexual ed class, or any other class, for that matter, some time before HS graduation? If so, in what context? If not, why not?

    At this point, you either understand what I"ve said (which I find likely), or you don't -- but it's all there in plain language, and I don't really feel like repeating it yet again. No one else seems to be having a problem.

    Perhaps you can explain this to me then if it's so clear to you...

    Harshaw is willing to discuss 'anal sex' and 'oral sex' but then suggests 'sexual orientation' should not be mentioned.

    Harshaw further states that sexual orientation 'doesn't even matter.'

    The idea that sexual orientation 'doesn't matter' simply doesn't make sense, especially in the context of a sex ed class. Something that 'doesn't matter' is irrelevant... like the number of fleas on an elephant, for instance, or whether Michelle Obama prefers black olives or green olives. To suggest that sexual orientation 'doesn't matter' defies common sense, especially in this day and age where gays and lesbians are quite visible. And it would certainly matter in any discussion of the risks of HIV/AIDS.

    Finally, when I asked the direct question:

    Do you believe that public schools should introduce the subject of sexual orientation and/or homosexuality at any time in a sexual ed class, or any other class, for that matter, some time before HS graduation? If so, in what context? If not, why not?
    ...Harshaw punted.

    If you understand Harshaw's assertion that sexual orientation 'doesn't matter'... I'll look forward to your thoughts.

    If you can find a sex act that's 100% exclusive to homosexuality, then point it out. Otherwise, sexual orientation does not matter to the purposes of sex ed as I laid them out.

    If you're gonna stick your pen into any inkwell -- or let someone stick theirs into yours --straight, gay, or animal, make sure you're protected. That's all there is to it.

    And really, if that's not clear enough, then, well, the problem is yours.

    I think it's pretty obvious what your position is, though you seem ambiguously cautious in you explanations of your rationale behind that position.

    If it's true that sexual orientation 'does not matter,' as you say, then it follows that a discussion of it in the classroom might be pointless in your view... but also harmless. In other words, a waste of time, perhaps, but no transgression worth noting.

    Is that your opinion?

    The option could have been "No, sex ed isn't a 'how to' class, it's a health class."

    and if you had made it a simple yes/no poll i would not have objected.
    but you used qualifiers/descriptors, making neither answer acceptable because of the way you interjected your spin

    in the simple yes/no question, my answer is NO
    I will repeat, SexEd is about health/safety not a "how to"
