I'm a bit out of touch with exactly what is taught in schools these days, but last I heard, homosexual practices were taught in sex education.

not sure at what ages, but I imagine around the 13-14 year old bracket.

is this true, and is this a correct state of affairs?

Is heterosexual "technique" taught in school? How are you defining "technique" exactly?

basically, the actions one must perform.

In my day, all that was taught was the biology of reproduction so can't see how that could be done in homosexual classroom

What's a homosexual classroom?

Here's a listing of state legislation regarding sex education:

Wow. This is scary:

"Dr. Mark Alain Déry was at the state Capitol on May 15 waiting on "pins and needles'' for the state House Education Committee to decide on a bill requiring the teaching of sex education in Louisiana public schools. Déry, a physician specializing in HIV/AIDS at the Tulane University School of Medicine, pleaded with the panel to support the measure, testifying that most 18-year-olds with HIV that he has spoken with said they either received no sex education or abstinence-only instruction."

Of course, the measure failed in spite of the following fact:

"The study includes figures from the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals showing that in 2011, 73 percent of newly diagnosed HIV cases and 76 percent of newly diagnosed AIDS cases in Louisiana were among African-Americans, and that the disease is starting to affect younger and more vulnerable populations within the black community. Louisiana currently ranks No. 1 in the country in terms of HIV incidence among young people between the ages 13 and 24, figures show. Twenty-five percent of new HIV diagnoses fall within this age category."

The state legislature in Louisiana has blood on its hands.

No, not here in Canada...All that is taught is that some kids have two dads or two moms, and that it is perfectly okay.

Beginning in 1994, the Public Health Agency of Canada published the Canadian Guidelines for Sexual Health Education to teach elementary school children how to understand different sexual identities and orientations.

The Canadian government is fulfilling its responsibility by working to improve education about homosexuality and oppose homophobia, aware that only by properly training educational workers can the serious problem of homophobia be eliminated from school campuses and society at large.
