Personally I don't have a problem with most of the propossed changes. Learning about same sex couples and marriages is a ok with me. Even answering question about masturbation is ok.
I bring this up because my husband is extremly homophobic and I am not. I want our son to respect and treat all people the same. I don't want him to think being homosexual is wrong in anyway. People love who they love and all families are different.
I also think teaching children the proper words for thier body parts is important too. I don't want Wyatt going around callinmg his penis a bird.
I know a lot of paope don't agree with sex ed but it is so important.....parents don't always teach thier children in the best way. My mother had me growing up thinking sex was dirty and wrong. I never enjoyed it until I met my husband.
I also think it teached kids to take control of trheir own bobies and know what is going on in their own bodies. For me its v ery powerful knowledge to have.
