Would you request to change your childs teacher in school if you found out the teacher was homosexual?

This is a spinoff of the gay babysitter question ..

Personally no i wouldnt, the only way i would requset to change my childs teacher is if i felt the teacher wasnt meeting my childs needs.,. not based on sexual orinetaion.. this shouldnt even be an option IMO..

BTW I had a lesbain teacher in the 6th grade (didnt know it til later) But she was one of the BEST teachers i ever had and i still talk to her!

  • As long as he didn't talk about being a homosexual, then no. I don't feel teachers should talk about personal life really much at all.

  • Nope, I feel that my son needs to be exposed to all different kinds of people.

  • I would never request another teacher. So what if they are homosexual.. that does not say what kind of teacher they are..or human being for that matter. I know people have the right to form their own opinion and practice what ever religion they want to..I still do not believe ANYONE has the right to condemn someone for their sexual orientation.

  • NO, what they do in their personal life is their own business. Who am I to judge. I have several homosexual teachers growing up and it never interfered with my learning process. If it doesn't affect my childs growth and development then why fix something that isn't broken?

  • No I would not, I had a gay teacher in middle school, he was different but a good teacher...Sexual orientation has nothing to do with their ability to teach, parent, love, etc....

  • I wouldn't want a homosexual teacher or babysitter. I don't want my child to be exposed to those lifestyles.

  • Nope, wouldn't bother me one bit, even if he was a flaming homosexual, or a bull-dyke lesbian. (I have 2 cousins, one gay, one lesbian)

  • Anon, you're a bigot. Just because a person is gay doesn't mean they go around telling people of their sexual orientation. I would rather have my child be taught by a homosexual than a heterosexual, seeing as almost all child predators are heterosexual!

  • No, I wouldn't care as long as they were a good teacher.
