    As Schools are meant to educate I think that if you are told about hetrosexual sex you should also include homosexual sex. I was bullied about my assumed sexual orientation. I just accepted what they said . Had I been aware of the mechanics of it and understood it better I might have been able to have made my own choice about coming out and being proud or at least more accepting. Being outed before I even knew what it meant gave me the view that being Gay was something to be ashamed of. I discovered what I wanted to know from porn magazines but this told me nothing about the simple fact that 2 men or 2 women can fall in love with each other in the same way as a man and a women can. Being bisexual only added to my confusion and didn’t even feature until I read about the life of Gerald Durell who had a brother who was bisexual. Being more informed may have embarrased me at 14 but no more than it did being told about how my parents produced me. At the moment I find that I am homosexual , bisexual , asexual and probably hetrosexual depending on the many factors that I take into account . If I have a choice I would have liked the practical side of it to have been taught equally alongside the other options . But ultimately from going to church I feel that it is who you fall in love with and want to be with that matters . The mechanics of sex should be taught at the start to help make informed choices .
