Ok. So what would you do? Try to teach him or her yourself? Leave it up to him or her to figure things out on their own? Find outside resources to explain things?Im not sure it’s the school’s job, It doesn’t matter if they are gay or straight.For those who are against This Book Is Gay being in high school libraries, I have a question: How would you want your gay teenage son or daughter to learn about being gay and gay sex?
This isn’t meant to be a gotcha question. If I were the parent, I think an outside resource could be helpful. If not This Book is Gay, perhaps another book that covers much of the same content. Do you agree?
If so, you’d probably be willing to purchase this book yourself. The question then becomes, if this option is good for your child, why not have this resource available convenient and free in the library for other teens who seek it out? I don’t care if some parents find it objectionable due to their religious morality, fears of grooming or other reasons. They and their kids don’t have to read it.
