HS Sex Survey Asks Kids, "If you have never slept with someone of your same gender, then how do you know you wouldn't prefer it?"
– From Ace
Again: it's just creepy that they're so fascinated with kids.
Follow-up questions asked:
1) "Do you like movies about gladiators?"
2) "You ever seen a grown man naked?
3) "Have you ever been to a Turkish prison?"
If you've never been hit in the face with a brick by me before, how do you know you wouldn't like it?
Let's find out.

Now I would have been embarassed with myself if I had come up with such an illogical non-question back in the third grade. I assume these oh-so-intelligent gay activists, however, are wallowing in their own smug self-satisfaction over this paradigm busting question. How effing sad.

Why not ask'em if they've tried heroin?...after all, they might prefer it over say twinkies or ho-ho's.
Ever since I started torching hobos I realize I like it a lot more than roasting hotdogs in the back yard.

Hmmmm. Survey was conducted by 2 high school social studies teachers.
How much you wanna bet that the surveyed kids haven't been taught a goddamned thing about the constitution?
Gee. I wonder why so many people are ignorant about politics and government.

Correction: Survey was conducted by 2 PRO-HOMOSEXUAL high school social studies teachers.
Not that pro-homosexuals are homo-obsessed in any way...
I never said I thought this was clever, but I stand by my opinion that this boils down to recruitment (under whatever dopey guise), and is no more appropriate for a high school classroom than it would be to invite Jehovahs witnesses or members of the UFO society to come in and make snide self-serving comments to a captive audience of teenagers.

I'm with Russell. I'm sure whoever wrote the question just wanted the reader to consider that it is possible that gays are as gay as straights are straight.
here's another question for the straights. Imagine that being straight was no longer cool (forget procreation, we are all Gattica and shit) Suppose the population was over 90% gay.

You've just describe ancient Greece (although there was no such thing as "gay" then, they were mostly bisexual and homosexual in ways that don't really exist in our culture. Which only goes to show how stupid the idea that " it is possible that gays are as gay as straights are straight."
Further suppose there were vast swaths of the world were it was essentially impossible to be openly straight. Under those circumstances would YOU still be straight?
Or would you be gay to fit in? For me, I assume that I would be courageous enough to be who I am.

Ancient Greece proves that most people who are brought up in a society that conditions humans to be bisexual/homosexual turn out that way. This includes desire - that famous concept that homo activists like to claim is innate and unchangeable.
So if you were raised in such a society, the question about being "who you are" is already wrong in the first place.
Are pedophiles courageous for being pedophiles?
Not only that, with today's sexually charged culture, a kid who doesn't pick up most of the knowledge he needs just by watching TV and talking to their peers isn't exactly El Swifto.
Besides -- and say it with me now -- it's not the government's job.

But what is there to pick up on TV? Isn't most of it exactly the same drivel that these teachers are saying? What about the messages in porn? Pride parades? Brokeback Mountain?
I think there is a big contradiction here (not just with bbeck's post, but with many others).
If schools are supposed to educate and kids need to be educated regarding personal behavior/relationships/sexuality and a lot of kids do not have parents who will correctly educate them on such matters and their sources of information are equal or a lot worse than these teachers, the result is atrocious for a considerable slice of society.
If only parents have the right to educate their kids regarding such matters, I think it is ridiculous to get worked up about two teachers when adolescent and adult culture is extremely saturated with pro-homosexuality and normalizing homosexuality and shoving it down society's throat as normal behavior, as equal to heterosexuality.
I also think that if you are a parent and your public school is teaching garbage to your kid, you should be entitled to part of your taxes back, or to have a school that teaches a healthy curriculum to youngsters, otherwise you are being robbed of your money to finance a dysfunctional society.
Reuter said she was sympathetic to supporters of the survey who had hoped it would reduce harassment of homosexuals, but she thought the survey backfired.
"I think it just got people really, really mad," she said.
And that, sadly, is the result of being a bigot.
You go around with blinders on, insensitive to anyone else's feelings, opinions and values, determined that your way is the only way... and surprise surprise, people react negatively.
Homosexual activists (I use that because I'm conservative... gay means happy, queer means strange, and a fag is just something you smoke... well ok, maybe they can have that one) have become that which they most hated.
All the more ironic that they, like most "victim" groups, really seem to be taken with the role of oppressor.

This is getting the order of events backwards. Sexual experience is borne of desire, not the other way around.

But desire is a complex set of compounded thoughts and feelings that are profoundly shaped by many factors, including culture, peer pressure, master narratives, personal history, functional and dysfunctional psychological developments.
