With all the bullying that's going on in schools, some people are pushing to have teachers explain about homosexuality, and tell students that its OK to be gay. But others are fighting this idea saying that since kids are already confused about life, teaching about homosexuality will just turn more kids gay. And they also feel that homosexuality is not natural, therefore teachers shouldn't push the gay agenda about gay tolerance.
How do you feel about this? Which side do you agree with the most?

No. Why should we have to mandate teaching tolerance of certain types or groups of people? Why should another person categorize other citizens? Do we have to teach tolerance of other groups: Blacks, women, the disabled, Christians? Do people actually look at people walking down the street and say to themselves, "there goes a Black man, a lesbian, a paraplegic?" How about we just accept people as people; forget the burden of tolerance.

We need to create a generation of non prejudice people, teaching them the truth about homosexuality will create this, nobody can turn you gay if you are not, we also need to stop the gay bashing and bullying in general. Homosexuality is normal and natural for the homosexual, it comes natural for them to be attracted to the same sex, they go through the same trial and tribulations we all do to find a mate, they are no different than the rest of us and yet for years have been deprived of their due civil rights only because of influential religious people do not agree with it.
There is no agenda, just a plan in place for those who can't understand to learn and not be afraid of what they do not know. I would love to see equality reighn in my lifetime, and I do my part to make it happen.
