I am torn about this because from the article it says that the boy have been being picked on and had to even have a body guard. That is a lot for a 10 year old to handle. His heart is in the right place I am just not sure it is wise for a 10 year old to have to deal with the aftermath of it all.

It is really sad that it was more important to push the gay rights agenda than considering the 10 yr. old's welfare and well being. No 10 yr. old needs to be in the middle of any debate involving sexuality. Kids should be allowed to be kids until they have at least reached puberty.

I'm a little dubious of it but by age ten a lot of people know they are gay...doesn't mean they have to do anything about it.. a lot of kids send each other valentines at that age, send notes and in my day they wore the other person's ID bracelet.

A 10 year old also doesnt have the ability to comprehend the laws, and the ramifications of the meaning of the constitution, and what the definition of a "right" is..

It's scary that these kids being taught liberal ideologies will be the ones taking care of me when I'm chitting in my diapers in a nursing home.
