Definitely! There has got to be history for all important subjects. Black history, slavery, homophobic people, etc. History on Harvey Milk. Children should be taught all important history.

When it comes to the socially inept (children) I would say the following:

-Give them a good learning environment. (Voting in Presidents like Donald Trump is not a good example of this.)
-Teach and promote critical thinking.
-Give them freedom to imagine.
-Be tolerant of their ideas.
-Teach them love.

I don't know how else to say this without seeming like I'm anti-gay. I am not at all. I just think there are better ways. I do have to say it's hilarious to read the posts in here of people getting right p'd off about this, I think that says a lot about point #1.

Oh well then, that's a wrap :smt045
It's funny how people with the least knowledge of an issue often have the strongest opinions on it

I'm glad you think so ...

IMO , toddlers have enough trouble learning about gravity in the " real world ".... Leave them alone until they get that figured out at least ... Then , maybe go one to the " 3 R's"

This world is becoming to squishy pherphuquesakes....

Toddlers don`t need to know anything at all about sex, straight or gay. Let them live in a world without sex , until they are old enough to understand it.

It isn't about sex, its about love.


Love need not be advertised by wearing bright colored spandex and stuffing a sock down your ginch.
Love need not be advertised with a man wearing a boa and dancing around on a flat deck trailer.
Love need not be advertised by outrageous public displays of uncontrolled lust mislabeled as affection.

If it's not about sex, then why does every parade participant bring sexuality into their presence?
If it's not about sex, then why do the participants dress in ridiculously provocative outfits?

The whole pride movement is a farce. A scam.
The entire thing is wrong on every level.
Those who stand in supposed pride of this movement are a significant share of the very problem with society today and the direction to which it's faced.

Teaching toddlers about gay pride is not just teaching them a lie. It's child abuse.

Have you even been to a pride parade?? The couple pride events I have been too (Kelowna, Van, and Victoria) have been nothing like what you described.

Atleast nothing worse then I would see at the beach in town, unless you think that's child abuse too...

Dramatic much??
No one says you have to take your kid to the parade if you don't want too. But I'm guessing it's not only the parade you find "wrong", but the entire "gay" aspect.

The fact is, gay pride is about love. I'm sorry you can't accept the fact that gay people have the right to love just like you and I.

I'm guessing billionaires find a lot of things to be wrong.
I'm guessing every human on earth finds a lot of things to be wrong.
I'm guessing gays find a lot of things to be wrong.

I'm thinking if anyone doesn't find stuff to be wrong, he's probably *bleep*.
Ukraine is broke, and undertook a war on that portion of the country that provided 30% of GDP. Now a draft, for an army, for a war, for a government that will - get this - implement IMF/EU *austerity*.

Because they don't represent you. They represent themselves. It has nothing to do with you at all. The world isn't a boring place of heterosexual conservatively dressed folks holding hands and having a quick peck on the cheek. The world is exciting and bold and made up of a huge assortment of types of people. Go meet some and live a little.

I mean, no sh*t.

Just because you think something is wrong, doesn't mean you get to try and paint it as child abuse. The LGBTQ community has faced a long history of stigma, and being pedophiles is one of them. That kind of ignorant discourse has been, and continues to be harmful towards people in that community.
