Have things changed so much in 12 years?
The Cuddle Puddle of Stuyvesant High School -- New York Magazine

Or did I lead a completely sheltered life in high school?
The article is long, but VERY interesting.

Thoughts? Comments? Snide remarks?

OK, I just have an observation:

A few years ago, the youth director at our church came to my dh (our pastor) and said, "In this town, if a girl wants a boyfriend, she has to have a girlfriend." I thought that was really interesting and certainly a shift from when I was in school....

I still think the statistics are interesting.....11% they quote as being in these relationships (same-sex) and yet their age ranges overlap.

There's no question but that things are more "open" than they used to be. I went downtown to pick my teen son up at the movies one night and got quite a show of "same-sex" public displays of affection!!

I have adult gay friends and acquaintances...the thing that bothers me is that this is so much a part of the identity and that the tolerance for what happens in public has gone up so high.

Amazing!

--"In our school, people are getting a better education, so they're more open-minded"-- WHAT?! Open-mindedness is the benchmark of a better education? Better than what?

This article is disturbing on so many levels. I remember hearing about this on talk radio. The writer was interviewed by Laura Ingram and well, wow.

I'm trying to teach my children that part of having respect for yourself involves not 'giving it away' on a whim, a dare, pressure, etc. Raging hormones will crave a wild ride, but if you've drawn a line you can choose not to get on the roller coaster. Regardless of sexual preference.

I'd not read the entire article, thanks for the link! C

Yeah, isn't it a little scary? I will take close minded and out of touch anyday, if that article is the alternative!
