Should children be taught about intersexuality & ambiguous gender in Sex Ed Class?
I remember learning about reproduction more than actually useful information about sexuality when I was in sex ed @ school.
(luckily my parents were very open & honest & bought me some great books to add to my public school abstinence-only misinformation)
Since we learn about the development of a baby from conception in this class, why is gender ambiguity not covered? Or did you cover this in your Sex Ed? Did I miss it on that day or something?
we’re still learning about & understanding new things about what determines sexuality & gender…. so why isn’t the issue of more than 2 options for gender brought up in these classes?
Do you think opening up this level of discussion on differences would encourage talk about gay, big & transgender people?
Is that a good or a bad thing in your opinion?
Great article about how you chromosomes play into your gender:
I also think that that the facts and theories about these topics should be taught without making value judgements.
I think children should be taught as they ask questions. I feel that it’s my job as a parent to listen and truthfully answer their questions without making them think my beliefs are THE WAY. I have 4 kids and they all pretty much ask the same kinds of questions about sexuality, but to different degrees. I answer them honestly.
Personally, I feel that no one can choose their preferences. It is what it is. I think the best learning tool is for my children to know or meet someone who is gay, or see a gay family unit. Then they will understand that there are different kinds of love. Different kinds of families. Family means love, not neccessarily a Mom, Dad and child combo.
I have gay family members and friends. I love them for the good people they are. I don’t really care who they fall in love with, I only care that they are happy. My kids know this and have been raised without narrow minded views.
Seems everyone is screwing around & playing Soddom & Gammorah so much these days that most kids don’t have a moral set of parents to teach them right from wrong! Much less go to a God fearing church!
