  • A homosexual love story for 1st graders?

    Homosexual book for 1st-graders

    A North Carolina couple is outraged by a book their first-grade daughter brought
    home from the school library in which a prince finds his true love – in the form of
    another prince.

    The leading character in "King & King," Prince Bertie, waves off a bevy of eligible
    princes before falling for Prince Lee, Associated Press reported. The book ends with the two "marrying" and sharing a kiss.

    "I was flabbergasted," Michael Hartsell of Wilmington, N.C., told the news service. "My child is not old enough to understand something like that, especially when it is not in our beliefs."

    AP reports the 32-page book by Linda De Haan and Stern Nijland was
    published in March 2002 by Tricycle Press, the children's division of Ten
    Speed Press of Berkeley, Calif. A follow-up, "King & King & Family," was
    recently published. The publisher says the book is intended for readers age 6
    and up.

    The principal of Freeman Elementary School defended the book.

    "What might be inappropriate for one family, in another family is a totally
    acceptable thing," Principal Elizabeth Miars is quoted as saying.

    Hartsell and his wife, Tonya, said they intend to file a written complaint with
    the committee that reviews library books for the district and are considering
    transferring their daughter.

    Never too young to teach hate.

      I am in favor gay marriages but I don't think we need to teach young children about homosexuality in school.

      This is over the line in my opinion.

        I don't think we need to have first graders learing about a "straight" relationship, either.

        What ever happened to Tip & Mitten and Dick & Jane?

          Kev, agree.

          Young kids need to stick to being young kids.

            Gonz,

            My real issue is that they have no right to take away a kid's innocence.
            And, frankly, it has never occured to me that "winning" a debate is important, or that I should be hurt when someone like Airshark or kah, among others (for whom winning a pseudo debate or declaring intellectual superiority over invisible others is obviously very important) ridicule me.

              Nahhh, it's never too young to teach alternative lifestyles; what if your son meets some nice man on the Internet and goes to meet him? He needs to know about what gays do with each other so that he can make an informed decision. After all, it takes a village to raise your child, and what if you're totally wrong? You are denying your child a learning experience...

                    I agree with you Kev, this totally invades a parents right to raise their child how they see fit. I have talked to my children about homosexuality but again that is my right as a father, that should be my decision.

                      Agree, JD.

                      Kids should be kids for as long as possible. Unfortunately it seems to be younger and younger all the time.

                        Indeed. I want to be the one to teach my kid about sensitive subjects.

                        Someone said they they need to be exposed to another opinion if their parents are teaching hatred. The problem with that is that then my rights as a parent are ignored to make up for the bad parent.

                        Teach kids to read, write and do arithmetic at school. Leave the other stuff to home schooling.

                        Maybe if our kids were better in math we wouldn't be getting our asses kicked.
