That is NOT free speech!! You can talk about it, that is freedom of speech...
To TEACH my child about homosexuality is NOT free speech......You want YOUR child to know about homosexuality, that is YOUR job to teach them, not the school system

Ah the good old ATS hypocrisy two-step again.
If someone is genetically wired to be homosexual, you have to respect their choice and be tolerant of their right to be that person.
If someone decides, for whatever reason they want, that they don't like homosexuals, you don't have to be tolerant of their right to think that or be that person.
Oh ATS, how you do amuse me so.
Russia's house; Russia's rules. Simple.
So you are comparing a state of being (a person is homosexual) to a belief (a person feels homosexuality is wrong)? You can challenge a belief. You cannot challenge a state of being.edit on 11-6-2013 by Syphon because: because I can never get something right the first time.

Some posters are in support of this anti-gay bill because you don't want you're children exposed to homosexuality because it would cause them to think it's normal ?!
Homosexuality IS normal, as is bi-sexuality, and heterosexuality. These types of sexualities have been around since the caveman first masturbated to a cave painting.
You're minor children are exposed to sexuality and sex education in their schools as a part of their regular curriculum.
Are they not ?
So what difference does it make if they're taught about all types of consenting human sexuality, informed and educated about it, and therefore taught tolerance and acceptance of every human's individual personal choices ?!
Is that not how we should be raising our children in the 21st century ?!
By saying you don't want minors exposed to the various forms of healthy, normal human sexuality, you've actually just exposed your own deep-seeded prejudice about homosexuality whether you realize it or not.edit on 11-6-2013 by CranialSponge because: (no reason given)
