    Do you think that it is ok to let every opinion into American schools?

    It seems to me that the school system lately has become a platform of different agendas rather than a place to learn. I suggest that we go back to the drawing board and weed out what is allowed on school grounds. I wrote my opinion what would help school kids and the youth to stay more focused on their task at hand. Read my HubPages at thank you for your interest and lets keep our classrooms attentive!

    I will read your hub, but before I do, let me just say that I don't think there's time or need to expose children to opinions. Give them the facts as they are demonstrated in history and literature; then let them form their own opinions.

    I strongly believe that our culture and schools are overly-sexualized. There is too much pressure on kids, and the media content they are exposed to (including pornography) can skew their perception of natural and normal. We can do a much better job in this regard.

    But that in no way means our schools should be sanitized of sexuality. Sexuality is a very real part of the human experience and a very real part of a young adult's experience. It shouldn't be black or white. We shouldn't dump unfiltered sexual content on them, but we also shouldn't pretend the world is neutered. What we should do is provide guidance and education and an atmosphere in which kids can naturally explore and develop their sexual selves in a way which is healthy and positive and at their own pace.

    Homosexuality is just one normal element of sexuality. The only kids who end up confused about it are the ones who are taught that it is some sort of deviant abomination. Stop teaching that and kids will be fine. Without that abomination lesson, you know how long it takes for someone to learn about homosexuality? About 5 seconds. Some people like chicks, some people like dudes, some people like both. Lesson over.

    Actually, I think the point is moot regarding homosexuality. The attitude you express is rapidly becoming ancient history.

      And it appears that this standard answer has defined "natural and normal" as so commonly forced upon society since 1970. This must also qualify a person to use the terms "kids" and "young adults" interchangeably.

      Normal and natural is that which remains when you remove dogmas and agendas (i.e. the absence of forcings). "Kids" and "young adults" are interchangeable if they were meant interchangeably. That seems obvious.
