    Funny how a science teacher doesn't understand 3rd grade biology and FACTS that state openly that gender and sex are not "assigned" at birth but by the Chromosomal makeup inside your DNA...

    Glad my kids r not in his/her class. A teacher imposing his choices on innocent children should be a crime.

    You thinking your trans-ness needs to be a part of science class is both hilariously ironic and sick. I would have them change classes or change school. Intolerable.

    It's not a gay agenda. It's including different and diverse voices into the conversation so that you don't get just one way of experience, but to understand all perspectives of the experiences we have in life. Sticking to a straight, white, male-centered conversation ignores and deprives people of the different ways and perspectives one could potentially see the world. I think this is important. It is deeply important to me. (Sorry, this was me bouncing off of what he said)

    Why can’t you accept yourself and not make it an issue in every aspect of your life? I don’t go around Hi everyone, Im straight. Look at me I’m straight. Straight Straight Straight. Know why? No one cares and no one cares what you identify as. You want to be a green bean it’s fine... and no one cares.

    My Bible says. " Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;" 1:22-28.

    I think this is a beautiful, amazing thing. In an ever-changing society, we need to teach our children tolerance of others, no matter how different.

    Is it really important to put a lesson about sexual orientation in schools?

    I think if a man wants to live as a woman or if a woman wants to live like a man, that’s their choice and I’m ok with that..... however, claiming that you ARE the gender you live as is untrue. Suggesting to kids that they don’t necessarily have a sex or a gender, or suggesting that they can choose one for themselves isn’t okay in my opinion. This could lead to a tomboy-type girl deciding that she must actually be a boy since she’s not as girly as the rest, or a boy who doesn’t like sports might start to believe that they must actually be a girl because they don’t like what the other boys like. Kids are extremely impressionable, and can easily misinterpret information and how to apply it to their lives. Compassion is good, inclusiveness is good.... suggesting to children that there are no definite genders is not. Being transgender is fine, but so is boys being boys and girls being girls.

    If you were actually meant to be a man, won't you be created as one?
