Opposition to policies outlined in document

Discussion of homosexuality should NOT be classified as sexual conduct as this would be unfairly discriminating against the gay community. Why should discussing homosexuality in school be illegal but discussing heterosexuality not be illegal. Additionally, discussion of homosexuality should not be illegal because kids should be taught that homosexuality exists. Not doing so, which would be an attempt to erase them from history, would amount to genocide.
