    Honest question here as I'm intrigued.

    Would you agree equally as well that any sex education deeming an act morally okay, or societally normal, ALSO be teaching morality?

    Actually, that's not even entirely true either. We are built to derive pleasure from anal sex ie. stimulation of the prostate.

    That is true, but sex isn't meant for the sole purpose of procreation. If it were it would make no sense for there to be any pleasure to be derived from it.

    That's exactly the opposite of common sense, isn't it? It's generally the pleasurable things in life that are most good for us... eating, grooming, bathing, cuddling, suckling, having sex. Even going to the bathroom generally 'feels good' for most people.

    The more pleasure to be derived from an activity, the more important it is for our survival.

    The only possible exceptions that come to mind are drugs and alcohol. It's not clear how much benefit we might derive from the pleasure of being drunk or doped... except that intoxication often leads to sex... or otherwise dulls the pain of a brutal existence.

    Of course.

    Sex education in the schools should not be about whether an act is "moral", "ok", "normal", or anything else. Sex "is"....and that's as far as it goes.

    Whether acts are "moral" or "immoral" is for the parents to decide.

    Absolutely not. Certainly it would help teach safety but there is far greater damage to children whom are subjected to this in class as if this was normal behaviour. No matter what anyone says whether professional or not, it is a mental illness that should be treated. What's next we teach safe human-animal sex to hillbillies in the Ozarks? This can be learned in private classes outside any tax paying program.

    I love this line of reasoning... because this is where many anti-gay folks get stuck in their arguments. They often resort to the claim that 'morality' should be left up to the parents, not the teachers. Which begs the question... if sexual morality is off-limits for teachers, are other moral issues off-limits as well? Lets say lying or stealing or violent behavior, for instance. Should teachers remain neutral on these issues?

    What we're obviously left with is a situation similar to religious preference. It's not a teacher's role to suggest that Catholicism is preferable to Protestantism, or that Buddhism is more acceptable than Hinduism. A teacher's role is to explain that these are all socially acceptable... not that they are 'equal'... but that they are acceptable.

    If parents wants to teach their children that Jews will burn in hell for not believing in Christ... as will gays... that's their prerogative. But the school should remain essentially neutral on that topic.

    I agree that we must teach safety but, let’s get practical.
