Sexually explicit is too broad

I appraciate that parents will be able to teach kids about sexual things in their own time, but sexually explicit is too broad of a term. I also completely disagree with LGBTQ being sexually explicit. Queer people are just people, who have a history in our nation. We can't just erase a whole era of history, it'll only promote ignorance. I don't care if you support and dont queer people, you can't just pretend they don't exist. Eliminating LGBT folk from the classroom is the equivalent of eliminating black history from the classroom. Just because you don't like it doesnt mean it doesnt exist. Our students need to learn about anything that exists. Thats the point of education.
