    What would this entail?

      You need far more details to have this make sense.

        Does that me we should also have a gay visibility day, lesbian visibility day, transgendered visibility day, and what the heck a hetero sexuality day, too?

          @dorothy8532 No because I don't see ant heterosexual people getting made fun because of their sexuality

          @clare_michelle So, then your reasoning is bisexuals should have a bisexual day in public schools based on the criteria that other people make fun of them? Essentially, I think you're saying because bisexuals are discriminated again...is that fair to say? Then I can only assume you would agree we need a day in public schools for gays, lesbians and transgendered people who may also be made fun of and discriminated against. Is that a fair assumption? Just asking this next question, and I'm interested to hear your response. So would you say gays, bisexuals, lesbians and transgendered students should have their own "visibility" days in high school, but you would discriminate against heterosexuals - deny them a "visibility" day - on the basis that their NOT discriminated against. Hmmmmm???

        I think kids of that age should be allowed to personally celebrate whatever event they are interested in so long as they do it outside of classroom time.

        I don't think it is an event the school itself should facilitate or focus on. It is simply outside the school mission and not a significant aspect of wider culture.

          all sexual choices of life should be respected and included in society as long as it's not some deviated behaviour that hurt peoples like rapes and stuffs in the same category.

            @blitzgrutel To a large degree, I agree. Do you smell a but, coming here (just one "t")? However, I would argue you can't dictate or mandate via law that you MUST respect, anyone. Gays, blacks, whites, albinos, indians, Germans, Italians, Jews, Muslims, Christians, Atheists, on and on and on. What you can mandate, dictate, etc., is if you commit a crime against anyone, regardless of sex, age, color, religion or anything else...you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. So, this will sound nasty, but I argue, you and I can hate anyone we choose to for the dumbest of reasons. It's our right as Americans. But, if we take criminal action against anyone based on our prejudices or biases, we should and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law...because under the eyes of the law we are and should be considered equal. What do you think?

            @dorothy8532 what I was saying was indeed only about the subject of this Quall. At this age, peoples usually reaches a stage in their life where they want to define themselves toward others, and sexual choices are one of those things that defines someone. So I think we should show to them that it's correct to prefer a different sexuality if they feel like it.

            @blitzgrutel Now, I gotta disagree respectfully. Let me take the example of the atheist, because I am one. Just like the bisexual, gay, or lesbian, you can't tell that I'm an atheist just by looking at me. Today, people don't seem to hate, or make fun of atheists like they did 50 years ago when I was a young teenager. If we apply your reasoning re: bisexuals, wouldn't it be equally good to have a special day in school for young teen atheists like me back then to tell them their decision is "correct?" Or to tell young atheists you like them, support them, and respect them. Let's face it a lot of people still don't like, support or respect atheists, and no law or special day can change that. In fact, I can't and won't ever demand that everyone supports me, likes me and respects me. As much as it may sound politically incorrect, people have a right to decide for themselves whether or not to like atheists, gays, bisexuals, lesbians etc.

            So, long as they don't physically attack me, my property or family (commit any crime against me), I'll stand up for their rights to their own beliefs.

            It seems to me like you would like to demand that everyone likes or at least supports bisexuals, et al. Their reasons for disliking, despising or hating bisexuals and/or atheists may seem stupid to you and me, but forcing them to agree with you on this or ANY ISSUE seems somehow unamerican to me.

            @dorothy8532 I REALLY wouldn't force anything on anybody about that. Telling that being different is ok is not forcing. Peoples will anyway become what they want. Hating and juging differences between others will always exist. What I was thinking about is to be able to tell those who are actually different that they can and it's correct. If I had a place to get where peoples would accept me as I am, at least only 1 room at the dinner, the world would not have changed around me, but mine yes.

          Why do you want to focus on sex in schools? Teach them how to use a condom and call it a day.
