Was on the Visa forums this morning and a Russian guy had a Youtube video in his signature about children being taught about gay rights in America. The video has a bigoted title, but the documentary itself isn't. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16Ed1kb8B6U&feature=player_embedded I was personally fine with it. Even back when I was at school, in the early 90s, we had some awareness of equal rights. I think our generation really led the way with mainstream acceptance. But that was secondary school education, not primary school, and the reason I posted this was because about half way in, you see a kid misunderstand what it means to be open minded in part. The kid describes being open minded in the class in terms he can relate to, such as trying a vegetable. If you're open minded, you will try a new vegetable. That's what got me thinking. If I was teaching my kid, I'd be teaching him that being open minded is about acceptance amongst other things. Not about trying. I personally don't try every vegetable, or food. But I accept that other people may like other types of food. That's the analogy I'd want my kid informed with. These differences are subtle. But as a parent, you might take them seriously. What you reckon, are children too young to be educated on moral values? I was drilled with all sorts of religious beliefs at school every morning, but didn't mean I turned out religious. Same as kids now, just because they go to a school that informs them of gay rights, doesn't mean your kid will be gay if they don't want to be.
