Read this article in The Boston Globe this morning:
Here is the letter I sent in response to the article:
To Whom it May Concern:
I read, with interest, your article on the hearings regarding the school health measure, and its inclusion of discussions of gay marriage and same sex relationships.
I found this point infuriating: " Several of the critics also oppose same-sex marriage and object to having homosexuality taught in schools."
As an adult gay man who remembers his schooling, I found the critics reasons for dissent laughable.
I spent my health class learning how babies are made. Also in school, I learned how a family is made up of kids, a 'mom' and a 'dad'. Nothing was ever taught to the contrary. No other viewpoint was ever raised.
If these kids have to sit through frank and honest discussion of homosexuality and same sex marriage, what is the big deal? Gay marriage has been legalised in Massachusetts. Kids today have gay parents, uncles, autns, and grandmothers.
I know of many gay men and women who spent their school days being 'taught' heterosexuality.We seemed to turn out just fine......what are these parents so afraid of?
