Kissing in a role-playing activity is pretty bad. If it were for theater, that would be different. In this case, it just seems nonsense.

So far...I see no case in defense of the Classroom Pedophilia. So the charges stand.
No and no.

No one was kissing. No one was forced to kiss. There was no kissing.

The students were asked to pair up and ASK for a kiss, so the other could practice saying no to unwanted advances.

Ah. So how is that a gay agenda?

This sentence doesn't make any sense. But I get the feeling I'd still have to ask "What's your point?" even if it did...

There is absolutely no proof of a "gay agenda", that is some hidden or vastly denied goal of gays who want to get legally married; this is a conspiracy theory created by Republicans who are seeking to compete with the 9/11 "truthers". Only a non-thinker would buy any of this garbage.

Now, back to the other side of this topic. I do think the school should've mentioned this exercise to parents as it does entail interaction between students whereby one, regardless of the reason, asks another for romantic/sexual attention. Not saying it's a bad idea all around, but it's not something I feel the school should decide to do on their own.
If homosexual sex is discussed in schools, then that more than ample evidence there's a gay agenda. Homo sex is not normal, should not be accepted as normal, and should not be taught as normal. Get your head out of the sand.

Whether it was an advance or a kiss....no matter.

The bottom line is kids were like "WTH....why?....." in their mind....

Why should the education of our youth be limited to what their parents can teach them about taking care of a baby? This doesn't have much to do with values; it's a rather practical thing. I just don't see how the paranoia can stretch that far.

Everything is everyone's business. But I can understand not wanting the school to promote certain values that should not necessarily be universal (liberalism, conservativism, religion, etc.). However, taking proper care of a baby (as well as the general idea of turning a sexual advance down until you're at least out of high school) are just plain great ideas. We can disagree on exactly HOW these things should be taught, but if we agree they should be taught, why not make SURE they're taught to EVERYONE? I just don't see the need to shield children from the truth just because we've made up the idea that it's not someone else's "place" to teach it.

That is not what I'm disagreeing with. I'm challenging the entirely unfounded claim that people who stand for gay rights want anything more than exactly that: equality for homosexuals to marry and adopt. It's not my "view" that carries the burden of proof; it's the view that the fight for gay rights is about something more.
