A gay activist group is pushing a training video to teachers and parents featuring school children between the ages of 6-12 discussing what it means to live a gay lifestyle.

According to CNSnews.com, The Human Rights Campaign, a homosexual advocacy group, has produced a “professional development film” through its website called the Welcoming Schools project.

On its home page, the Welcoming Schools project states that it “is an LGBT-inclusive approach to addressing family diversity, gender stereotyping and bullying and name-calling in K-5 learning environments. … Additionally, it offers a wide range of resources for school administrators and educators to support students who don’t conform to gender norms.”

CNSNews.com says questions to the Human Rights Campaign -- "including inquires about whether the training sessions are taking place in schools, how many schools are participating, and whether or not the video will be viewed by children -- were not answered before this story was posted."

"The teacher said stuff like 'do you know what it means to be gay?' and 'is it a bad thing to be gay?'" said one little girl in the 2-minute trailer.

A boy wearing a pink t-shirt with the slogan ‘Tough Guys Wear Pink’ on the front, said “And then he just laid down this huge thing that was like, ‘No teasing about who your parents love... Love is love and you shouldn’t turn love into hate...”

The Web site features “experts” praising the film, including one from the Southern Poverty Law Center.

But critics slam the video's teachings as "gay propaganda" similar to the "indoctrination" of school children in Nazi Germany in the 1930s and 40s.

    All I know is they teach everything in school BUT the original 3 R's...mention God in school and all hell breaks loose. Say a prayer in school and it is a problem. Prepare a kid for the SAT or ACT and your being to striact. I am so thankful I matriculated during a time when it took a village, each one teach one, knowledge is power. Kids already grow up in single households, some without morals, values its like they are no longer given the option to choose what they want to be... a child should not be taught to be gay or straight. I'm teaching my kid the difference between a RN and a LPN not the difference between Adam and Steve vs Adam and Eve. Thankful not to live near this foolishness... when I was a child, I acted, thought, and spoke as a child. My child does the same, yet I teach her no hate nor things she shouldn't even be focused on.

    Exactly!!! People have different religious beliefs as well so I feel the school should be a general learning institution. You know for Reading Writing, Science, Math, etc. Especially those kids in grammar school. Too often a child's childhood have been taken away from them because adults want to ambush them with their own agendas and their life choices after they have lived their own childhood.

    My motto: "Leave them alone and teach your own"

    Well I guess it's better learning about it in school than learning about it the way I did. I won't go into graphic details,,,but it involved me using a public bathroom stall, me seeing a hole in said bathroom stall and me putting my naughtybits in said hole that was in said bathroom stall...Now I can't tell yall what happened,,,,but lets just say,,,that uh um,,, well lets just say that I know why the caged bird sings :wink: :biggrin:

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    On one hand, I say yes because the world is changing and kids are bring exposed to any and everything. Although I would prefer my kids to come and ask me about it and I explain it for them to understand.

    But there are parents out there that think school is a babysitter and anything and everything they will EVER learn should be taught at school. Some parents are not capable of explaining things to their kids because they just don't know what to say or how to say it.

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    Hey @ Elove what do YOU think though?

    :offtopic: sorta. What is a good age to talk to your kids about sex? My daughter is 9 and I'm not sure if talking about it now will ruin her or make her even more curious.

  • YepIsaidIt

    @Ms.kayla, My daughter is 7 and I've talked to her about everything from adult to kids touching her inappropriately, and knowing when you speak up when someone is doing something that she doesn't like. I've taught her that boys touching her is not acceptable and that her body is precious and no one should come in contact with her special areas. I will probably talk to her about sex when she is your daughter's, age for the simple fact that kids these days are fondling each other, performing oral sex on each other, and even having full-on intercourse. And I do mean 9 year olds. AT SCHOOL. It was happening when I was that age, and it's still happening now. I will try to find an appropriate way to talk to her about sex, though.

    _____________________________________________________________________
    My mom started talking to me about sex when I was in pre-school nothing graphic but she made sure to explain it on my level. She said she did this so I would know if someone was taking advantage of me or forcing me to do anything inappropriate. As I got older she began to explain in further detail. I always knew how children were made. I think he being open with me was part of the reason I waited until I was 18

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    @Yep We have talked to her about the inappropriate touching as well. It just makes me nervous that she is friends with a couple of girls that are *ahem* advanced in their age and talk about boys all the time around her. I kid when she is on her phone texting and ask if she is texting a boy and she says "Mom, ewwww, nooooo". I tell her "Good, because you have to finish college before you even talk to a boy". Of course, she thinks I'm joking but deep down inside I hope she does wait that long.

  • http://twitter.com/_Tainted_Love Tainted_Love

    :ontopic: I don't think kids should be force to learn about homosexuality in school...if your're going to talk about homosexuality then talk about religion as well. School is not the place to discuss things that go on in a person's home/personal life!

  • EB

    This is some bull chit. :coffee:

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    @Tainted wow! That young, huh? I'm late then. I want her to open about it but I really want her to be mature and responsible when she does decide to have sex. I want to have that same relationship with my daughter that your mom had with you.

  • http://twitter.com/_Tainted_Love Tainted_Love

    @Ms.Kayla It's not too late...just be open and honest with her. I can come to my mom about anything. ( We kind of have a Mr. Joyce and Kandi relatioship..but Kandi is a little wild compared to me)She was the first person I told when I lost my virginity. I used to mentor a few girls and we would discuss sex, relationships and school. The ranged from 8-15. One of the 11 year old girls I had was already sexually active. It's never to early.

    Thanks @Tainted

    This LGBT stuff is gettIng out of hand...Let's not force it down peoples throats.Especially not the children.Now if you want to have some sort of outlet where they can go and talk with somebody about their sexuality if confused now that's ok with me but they be doing a lil to much with all these videos and classes and tutorials..

  • phoenyxx

    I do not see anything wrong with it at all. We need to teach tolerance. It is the same as teaching White children back in the day that you will not get sick and die from sharing the same water fountain as Black children. It is also the same as teaching White children not to torture people because they happen to be Black.

    Just replace White with straight and Black with gay.

    -----------------------------------------------

    So, are you saying that the LGBT movement is really a white gay movement?

    I believe that this video should be inclusive of the many ways people exclude others. For instance, when I went to school, people were excluded because they were too fat, too skinny, too dark, too light, too dumb, too smart, too small, too big, possibly on public assistance.....

    The list goes on and on. There are any number of ways to exclude people and hurt them.

  • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    @ Pillow-pet: teaching kids about men sleeping with men is not the responsibility of the schools. They don't even teach heterosexual sex education in schools.

  • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    @ Ms.kaylamomma: My mom didn't teach me anything about sex other than to warn me not to do it with boys because I might get pregnant and shame her in front of the whole neighborhood. :lol:

  • phoenyxx

    @sandra i think people reduce homosexuality to the sexual act way too much. homosexual relationships are more than the sex and often times no different than heterosexual relationships.

  • phoenyxx

    @pillow pet what i am saying is that the same way you learn not to harm people due to their race is the same way people should learn not to harm people due to sexuality.

    people will kill other people because they are gay just as they used/still kill people because they are black.

    the aforementioned issued you have named are problems too however they are not as to the forefront as a person's race and sexuality.

  • pointhimout

    i'd rather you teach kids tolerance over specific teachinig about gay and lesbian. Although I'm no size queen, but a connoisseur of same sex loving, hearty dip sticks, and nice dimpled basketball booties, I frown on this topic. I feel it's another effortless way to strip kids of their innocence and that, I DONT LIKE.

    It's one thing if kids have questions but schit, dont make it part of the curriculum like history and math. Stop it, right now please.

  • 3halos

    My twins are in kindergarten and I'll be damned if I need anyone teaching them about gay straight or whatever the hell. My kids better learn how to freaking read like a pro, add like a champion and multiply like rabbits - ON PAPER. The hell with minor stuff like sexuality which is too confusing emotionally and physiologically for these younger people.

    Yes, bullying is bad but c'mon, why do they need a lesson what is gay and straight at these ages. Can we just elevate our damn test scores please on reading and arithmetic before China takes over? Dayum!
