This is against moral values of the majority of the population, children should be left alone. Stop using taxpayer’s money and trust on wrong agenda.

The schools are not the place to teach about sexuality beyond the basics of reproduction and avoiding STDs. If bullying is an issue, address bullying. A knowledge of different ways to have sex is not needed in order to treat people with respect. No one should have to approve or affirm anyone’s identity or proclivities. I disapprove of many people without bullying them. The LGBTQ+ community consistently exaggerates the dangers to their community & pushes unproven methods like comprehensive sex education as a solution to their manufactured oppression. This bill 100% unnecessary. Oppose!!!
