we sure as hell didn't have sex ed classes where we were told to solicit kisses from anyone when i was at high school. especially at 13-14yrs old.
except it was role playing in a class room environment they weren't actually asking a girl to kiss them.. the point of the activity was to learn how to not be a total asshole when faced with someone who is over a different sexual orientation than you asks you something like that.
I understand what the school was doing. And honestly i kind of applaud it. Its not teaching kids to ask total strangers for a kiss. They could have changed it to having a girl ask a girl for a date, cause that would warrant the same type of response.
And really unless you are in a place where there are only people of the same sexual orientation, gay people do run the risk of finding someone attractive/interesting and they not be gay. And there are people out there who would do something potentially harmful to them if they were asked if they wanted to go out on a date. If we educate people when they are just starting to have romantic inclinations (right around puberty) then maybe we can prevent the bad things from happening.
(and i'm pretty certain that someone will rip my opinion apart)
