    Well, exactly. We teach in schools, either directly or by example, that being Jewish is both normal and acceptable. We would never teach that it is 'abnormal' despite the fact that the 'norm' in most of our schools is Christianity. And no one would stand for any teacher in any public school teaching students that Judaism is unacceptable.

    Of course, Christian parents are free to teach their kids that Jews will go to hell and that Jews, Muslims, or Hindus are abnormal and unacceptable. Those teachings are properly done at home.

    So yes. I suppose it's completely fair to say that gays want the schools to teach that they are both normal and acceptable.

    So? I said it should not be. That it is merely demonstrates the dereliction of the public school system.

    I am trying to promote gay sex. For gay people anyway. The popular alternative promoted by conservatives is to force gay people into being ashamed of who they are (because of how the good lord made them) and living sad, miserable lives. That being the alternative, gay sex sounds great! Gay sex rules! ...Don't take that the wrong way...

    Why shouldnt it be? Whats so aweful about it, or offensive about it? Is it not PC enough? What seems to be the problem?

    Public schools should teach scholastic subjects. How billy bob should persuade mary sue to drop her knickers is not a scholastic subject. Relationships are not scholastic subjects. There is no "how" of relationships that schools have any business teaching.

    Teach how to engage in sexual acts without spreading or contracting disease, and teach about contraception. That is all that sex education should be. Any content beyond that is an overreach and should be excised from the curriculum.

    It's impossible to teach sex ed without attractions being mentioned. Someone in the class will ask a question geared towards heterosexuality, or even homosexuality. It can't be so sterile that they aren't allowed to talk about human things. I say it shouldn't be a policy to discuss attractions or who your partner is, but if it's brought up then it can be addressed.

    What I find amusing is that immediately after you said that, you said this:

    Teach how to engage in sexual acts without spreading or contracting disease, and teach about contraception. That is all that sex education should be. Any content beyond that is an overreach and should be excised from the curriculum.
    The second is clearly contradictory of the first. You think school should have only scholastic subjects yet you think contraception and safe sex should still be taught.

    You said schools shouldn't teach the "how," but you still think they should teach "how to engage in sexual acts without spreading or contracting disease."

    What if students ask about gay sex? Do you just ignore it? That's not professional in an educational atmosphere. What if parents and others cannot teach the students about gay sex? Who does the student have to turn to? The school.

    Hogwash squared, cubed, and multiplied by 10.

    If the topic of attractions comes up, the teacher says something witty like "that is beyond the scope of this class. Questions like that are best asked of your parents."

    It SHOULD be a policy not to discuss attractions or who your partner is. Schools have no business weighing on attractions, relations, likes, or dislikes. Makes no difference whether the question is about heterosexual or homosexual relations or attractions--the emotional dimension is outside of what is appropriate in the school

    Reading your description of how a classroom should operate I almost imagine a room full of robots... or zombies. "Insert peg A into slot B." Nothing more. No mention of love. No mention of commitment. No mention of the humanity of it all.

    No morals. No values.

    Odd.
