Issues on Teaching Homosexuality in the Sex Education Curriculum

Sex education is making available to students the knowledge about the anatomy of sexual organs, sexual reproduction, reproductive health, sexual intercourse, relations with the sexual partner, reproductive rights and responsibilities, contraception and other facets of sexual behavior.

Sex education may also include information about sexuality, including family planning information, all aspects of an individual’s sexuality, including: sexual orientation, dating, relationships, sexually transmitted diseases and how to avoid them.

The issue of teaching homosexuality in the curriculum of sex education is very important because children should be aware that such people exist in our world and they deserve the same respect as the rest of us.

This theme evokes a wild swirl of controversy. On the one hand, there are people, who think of homosexuality as a totally natural inclination to love people of the same. There is nothing wrong about that. It only means that such people are tolerant and understand that this is normal. This attitude causes a reaction, especially among religious people, who speak of homosexuality as disease, perversion, a sin that homosexuals will be punished for when they die.

Teenagers of non-traditional sexual orientation are often ignored in the curriculum of sex education, as well as discussions about safe sex practices. Some people do not agree with a sex education, which mentions or discusses sexual practices (like oral sex) under the pretext that the inclusion of such additional information may appear as encouraging of homosexual behavior.

Supporters of inclusion of homosexuality in curriculums of sex education believe that the exclusion of discussions referred to questions or issues of homosexuality, bisexuality, or transgender, can lead to feelings of isolation, loneliness, guilt and shame, as well as depression that will have a worse effect on students who think that they might belong to one of these groups or are not sure about their sexual orientation. Those in favor of the inclusion of LGBT issues in sex education argue that such information will be useful, relevant, and reduce the likelihood of suicide, sexually transmitted infections, and bad behavior of students. In the absence of such discussions homosexual teenagers will remain in hiding, and the rest will be deprived of guidance on how to deal with their same-sex inclinations or LGBT classmates.

Sex education is making available to students the knowledge about the anatomy of sexual organs, sexual reproduction, reproductive health, sexual intercourse, relations with the sexual partner, reproductive rights and responsibilities, contraception and other facets of sexual behavior.
