Diversity traning good?... Gay acceptance bad?

Printer Friendly
gay crayons

I came across a controversial article this week about teaching acceptance of gays and lesbians… to younger children...in schools.  There are many who don’t consider gay rights a topic of discussion that is appropriate for school, especially elementary-aged children.  When the unwelcomed topic starts to creep into our schools, it causes even more friction for those with conservative lifestyle views vs. those who have liberal lifestyle practices. 

We all agree that bullying is a problem.  That’s one thing we can cross off the list.  The question of how to handle and prevent it is a much bigger issue that remains unresolved.  Is it appropriate for schools to teach diversity and acceptance of races and religions?  Is it appropriate for them to teach diversity and acceptance of gays and lesbians?  There are many families that believe these lessons should be taught in schools at an early age, just as you would teach children how to share crayons.  Same-sex families want to be recognized and accepted, not ostracized, for being “different.”  In D.C. public schools, a city where it is legal to have a same-sex marriage, a plan has been developed to increase gay awareness in schools.  There is the belief that teaching acceptance and diversity at an early age will help prevent bullying in the future.  True or False?

There are many other families that oppose this type of curriculum.  It is not the duty of the school system to expose their children to a way of life that is immoral and unacceptable in their eyes.  In a society that is oversexed, why should their children be introduced to an alternative sexual lifestyle?  They appreciate diversity training just as much as most, but not at the risk of teaching their children about homosexuality too soon or at all.  Just as parents have the right to opt out of sex education classes being taught to their children, shouldn’t they have the option to opt out of diversity training that includes conversations about homosexuality?

Is it true that “highly publicized teen suicides tied to anti-gay bullying,” according to the Washington Post article, have contributed to the need to the change in school curriculum?  Who should be held accountable? Is it the job of the school to teach gay sensitivity training?  Do parents have the right to object to diversity training when it mentions homosexuality?

I investigated housing resources, and I stumbled upon this real estate web page, OC Housing News. I discovered this news post, Real Estate’s Lost Decade. This web post is better than most. The housing news and real estate analysis on the site is super, the cartoons and writing are entertaining and insightful, and the real estate educational materials are fantastic. I advise discovering this Internet site to tour what it has to offer.

Weight Loss experts will tell you that the only way to lose weight safely is to burn more calories than you take in each day. This generally means eating less or healthier food in addition to exercising each day. The astonishing thing about GCB MAX is that it works exactly the way that the industry professionals recommend. Without the need for diet and exercise. Buy Green Coffee Beans

Green Coffee Bean Max is made with pure extract of green coffee beans which is 90% more effective than roasted coffee beans. Clinical trials on this supplement indicate that it reduces more than 10% of overall body weight in a few weeks. The good thing observed in clinical studies is that, it doesn't cause any side effect. The active substance in green coffee bean extracts is chlorogenic acid which inhibits the fat absorption in the body and stimulates the activation of fat metabolism. Both processes play a vital role in rapid fat burning in the body. Experts suggest a daily serving of 300 mg with a healthy diet and exercise for better results.
