Stop pushing labels on children,

16 in school a student teacher introduced me to **. I'm not angry or regretful, she brought out in me something I had repressed. In that sense she saved me from future misery. Being a teenage gay person had it's moments, but mostly it just became part of my identity.

My experience in no way excuses a teacher messing around with a student. It in no way suggest that gay is the way to go. If anything I've learned in my 20+ years of teaching, teens are ill prepared to deal with aberrant sexual identities. Celebrated but not helpful.

I've come to this conclusion through experience, teens are in transition, starting around 12-13 until 24-27, let them complete that transition before a labeling is used. As many gay teenagers are straight, as some straights are gay. But being gay requires being an adult to make that determination.
