They were taught the words pansexual and genderqueer...per the students???

And nothing homosexual was mentioned....??

I'm sorry are you really trying to debunk this on the back of semantics now?

The state provides an 81 page document to assist educators in complying with the act. I made a cursory review and missed the section that suggested "role playing to avoid unwanted advances" or "how to identity sluts".

If you have any information that CBN mentioned it before the local story mentioned it on the 17th (that I posted above) fine, but if not it was not CBN that first mentioned it.
It is relevant in context to the post I was responding to.

They were taught words. Not to be homosexual.

two girls were told to stand in front of the class and pretend they were lesbians on a date.


Why was it even considered in the first place? Forced or not? Do you really think this is appropriate? Really?

Either way the info is wrong. Look I understand that this is likely a touchy subject for you. I imagine that much of it is things you wish had come along far earlier and you would hate to see the baby get thrown out with the bath water here. I understand that.

I imagine I would support much of what is desired here but I have some real questions about it overall and it seems that the school understands that this was handled poorly.

Hopefully the controversy will allow them to be able to handle and change things for the better.

When the law supposedly being served is to prohibit bullying and harassment, how can making 2 girls role play as lesbians on a date do anything but promote bullying and harassment?

Funny how the Far-Left education/indoctrination campaign that is shaping the next generations of Americans rarely gets noticed today until something like this occurs. The promotion of diversity as a goal in and of itself, and the encouragement of any and all variations from the social norm, are just one part of it. The other part is the idea that government is the solution to all evils, while business is (by definition) bad, and must be heavily regulated by--you got it--government.

I agree that parents should have been told before hand, and that could have been handled better.
I'm getting frustrated having to provide the same information repeatedly. (see post above this one)

There was no "forced kiss".
There was no "lesbian" role play.

The whole asking for a kiss thing was to teach how to say no.

The balance of your entry is snipped due to being obsessed with social BS and conditioned idea's of acceptance. Acceptance is relative in a given natural way, and don't forget, expectation and experience has influence, as we are discussing an issue that has everything to do with what ? ... Plus it is a suggestive natured issue. Anyway thank you and as usual I have nothing cruel to say about anyone and have nothing good to say about the out of control gay movement. This issue at the school is ridiculous and to be honest I'm surprised the gay advocates are not taking these ao's over the cliff in a hand basket...rest assured no one would mind. The youth deserve better then this BS.
Pretty sure you don't actually know what you're talking about, especially if you are suggesting that attraction is merely a learned behavior.

Other than that, no one cares if you're tired of the gay movement. The thing about equality is that it angers people who don't believe in it... which, by the way, is definitely learned behavior.
