Watch this in FULL - it's TRUE in Massachusetts:

So, what would you do if your kids math problems included "Mr. and Mr. Jones had a dozen eggs...." etc.

  • I would just die of shame.

    Oh, no, wait.

    I would hope she got the math question right!

  • Hmmmm....great question. I completely support gay marriage so I guess it would depend on the age. Anything below high school I think is inappropiate.

  • Well they're reading books in kindergarten called "king and king" (to above poster)

  • Ok and I answered your question. i think it is inappropiate. Maybe high school was pushing it, but before sex ed. Only because I think children at that age are too young to process all of that and shouldnt have to.

  • pissed don't get me wrong i think if gay people want to be married fine who am i to say you can't but don't preach it to my children. i think sexual orientation should be like religion and not taught in school it's just not ok. yes on prop 8 for that reason

  • Process what? That humans can love other humans regardless of gender? I'm gay and absolutely proud! I will never hide that from my children.

    It's wonderful that schools are teaching our children tolerance. NOONE is going to be "turned" gay by that. You're born into your sexuality.

  • I watched the video, but I found it very biased. The mother said the schools are promoting homosexuality in every subject at every level including spelling. I'm a teacher and there is no way this could happen. NOTHING can be integrated into every subject at every level.

     I would really like to see a news clip that presents more information. I'd like to hear the school's side. That video just doesn't seem plausible.
