And I do think that in some schools now, it's become more than teaching equality and respect and doesn't just include how babies are made but how two men have sex with full details and I can understand that not sitting well when you come from a religious home. I don't think the discomfort with it necessarily has to do with being a bigot, etc.
I wouldn't feel comfortable with school teachers teaching how ANYONE has sex. I didn't know they did this, it was not taught to us in school. We learned basics, STD pregnancy etc, but never how an actual sexual act is played out. I do feel like its a parents job to discuss this if they choose to. But I 100% am ok with them teaching kids that its a FACT OF LIFE that homosexuality exists.
