  1. The woman is quite barmy! Why on earth is she thinking about the sex lives of teenagers and whether or not they’ve had sex with a prostitute?

    Definitely something not right with this woman.

    What a loon…. w/ a persecution complex. And she thinks far too long and hard and oddly about the teen girls around her and their sex lives or lack thereof to have made me (as a mother) comfortable leaving my kid in her ‘care’. Those have got to be some of the nuttiest statements I’ve read about how someone comes to an understanding of their sexual orientation. She’s right to keep her mouth shut if that tripe is all she can come up with.

    Fire her and ban her from ever working with children again. It doesn’t matter if she never openly voices her prejudices around them: it is literally impossible for a person’s beliefs not to affect their perceptions and actions. And a person with beliefs this extreme would be pure poison in any situation involving children.

  4. This person should not be teaching.

    1. So agree. Shouldn’t be teaching with such a low level of IQ!

  5. Mad, bad and dangerous to know. Religion is the true perverted spirit that flourishes in some humans like a cancer of ignorance and bigotry.

  6. Most religions are breeding grounds for this sort of thing. Let’s face it, isn’t religion really the culprit for sewing the seeds of homophobia, institutionalising it aroudn the world? Orthodox judaism has been spewing this hatred for over five thousand years, the roman cult for almost two thousand and the Anglicans for over five hundred years as well as the newer evangelical groups, and of course Islam for the past fourteen hundred years and none of them have taken any responsiblity for it, in fact they play the victim card when you take them to task on it.

    1. Playing the victim card is to be expected.

      After all their morality is based on divine commandments, not human well-being.

  7. I’m always amazed at how much time homophobes devote to thinking about sexuality.

  8. So is she saying we should set kids up with gigolos and escourts on their x (insert inappropriate age here) birthday so they can know what good sex is like? What’s her point? Also, did she only find out she was attracted to men after she had good sex with them? One would wonder what led her to persue good sex in the first place is she wasn’t interested!

      Furthermore, how does she know she doesn’t like having sex with women? According to her own criteria, she really should try it before dismissing it.

    2. She is also ignoring the emotional aspect of sexual relationships. Good sex isn’t just about some gigolo with ‘good technique'; nor is someone inexperience necessarily to be avoided. Surely the important thing is having sex with someone you trust and who treats you right, and who you are attracted to?! Or am I missing something? >_>

  9. What kind of world do we want to live in. One where anything goes and Godless? This is a slippery slope. We will soon accept brother marrying sister as the norm and polygamists’ life styles as natural. Homosexuality is a sin. It doesn’t get any simpler than that. If you believe otherwise, you’ve been brainwashed.

    God, I pray that you will save us from ourselves. Amen.

    1. who’s the brainwashed one?

    2. Don’t be silly.

      A world ruled by god(s) has committed one atrocity after another by divine command. You must have a blind spot.

      A secular world is more concerned with preventing human suffering by promoting human rights and well-being.

  10. These are some of the people behind the gay hate http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=di04_vKfqNw

      Oh come on… what the church actually teaches in terms of homophobia is bad enough– ridiculous [and bigoted] conspiracy theories about international banking just muddies the waters and makes you less creditable.

  11. Children having sex with professionals? Wtf.

    I imagine the advice was ‘shut it, you sound like a nut job!’

  12. Jack Scott 21 Oct 2011, 7:59am

    How do people like this get jobs teaching children in the first place? She should be prosecuted for spreading hate.

  13. It is called freedom of speech. We aren’t China yet. Most gays are way too uptight about everything. Get over yourselves!

    1. Theres a difference between freedom of speech and hate speech. Thats a line that you should never cross – whether its aimed at muslims, christians, gays, jews, women etc…

  14. What about Christie saying, when Gay Marriage was legalized in NY, that as long as he is governor, Gay Marriage will not be legalized in NJ?
