    Well Terry, I read the article and it is very controversial. Personnally I don't care to open a discussion on whether or not it is choice or part what someone is born with since I really don't have issues with sexual choices people make.

    The only issue I have is simple, I don't as a routine overtly advertise that I am heterosexual, and, therefore I don't see the need for blatant in your face homosexual acts. There is a Gay Pride parade each year, leave it at that.

    As such, I guess my position on this is to understand where the line in the sand is. There is, IMO, a necessity to clearly indicate where learning ends and encouragement to 'experiment' begins. Like the author, I don't have issue with natural selection but any policy that serves that fantasy that being gay is a simple care free life choice has to been halted. In the real world there are still countries that will throw you in jail and the last thing we want to see is our children thrown in some foreign jail because they have some rooted belief that homosexuality is universally accepted and without consequence.

    Why would anyone choose to be in a group that is persecuted by people that have no clue.

    It makes no sense.

    What I found interesting about the article is the discussion of agenda driven grooming and promotion of lgbt by some. I have no doubt that sexual orientation is something you were born with. I don't think more or less of gays and agree they have equal rights including the right to marry. Why would we deny them something that makes them happy? What I have been suspect of is this level of interest on sex by this government. When Smitherman was health minister he delisted eye exams yet listed sex changes. Does this reflect on him being gay? Ben Levin's time as a senior education policy maker yielded curriculum that introduces consent with children below the legal age. Interestingly he was convicted last week of being a pedophile. One could interpret the actions if this government as agenda driven quite easily. I just found this article interesting.

    Science still doesn't have the definitive answer but it is my belief that instances of choice are rare. I really do believe it is part of what you are born with. Sadly there is intolerance for something that people cannot change any easier than the eye colour...

    My point here is not to question wether it is a choice or genetic trait. I truly don't care either way. My opinion is who you choose is your business not mine. What you do behind closed doors is your business as long as you are acting legaly. I wonder why there is so much emphasis/political capital spent on sex by this government? Would it be the case if the Premier were not gay? Is she using her power to "promote" a lifestyle? Is this an issue that should be consuming so much time when Rome is burning? Or is it a convenient channel changer to mask the smell of smoke.

    And there you have it... I agree Terry this is simply a "bait and switch" to divert public attention from the stinky foul mess that has now become common with this government.

    It is grooming the very young to think the Liberal way!

    Conservatives are more apt to think in line of the traditional family unit and vote accordingly.

    Long range planning on their part to garner support and win elections!
    Maybe I am reaching down too deep but there is always a method to the madness.

    Probably not a fair comparison but indoctrinating the youth at a very early age works in favour of the governing party. Child soldiers in Somalia, Hitler youth corps,..etc......as extreme examples.

    The Premier probably does have some strong interests in issues of sexuality as a homosexual person. I don't think that's a weakness or secret agenda of her or her party. We are still less tolerant of people who are not heterosexual and some people on this forum do demonstrate that from time to time. The reason to promote "gay acceptance", especially at school, is easy for me to understand: I don't know a single young person whom committed suicide because he/she was heterosexual; I do know a few whom have killed themselves because they were gay. The peer pressures at school are hard for just about every kid in some way or another. Gay pride events probably exist in large part for people to celebrate the fact that they made it through those uncomfortable years alive when it was probably hard for them to accept themselves, let alone gain any sort of acceptance from everyone else.
    As hunters, you'd think we'd have a little more insight and empathy into what it means to have a lifestyle that isn't entirely socially popular.

    lol Hilarious.

    Well, my 5 yr old daughter is so far very hetero. Loves her pink, loves her dolls, thinks of families as primarily having moms & dads, talks about who her boyfriends are or will be, etc.

    I'll get back to you in 10 yrs or so and let you know if the sex-ed curriculum (that is nearly 100% the same as the one i was educated under) turns her gay.
