opposablethumbs comment 18 The american christians may be wrong about their position. If they are concerned for the young, they should drop the sex discussion taboos and assist the young on their transition through puberty toward sexual maturity. We hear of too many young people struggling alone. In my opinion, it is not however, another job for the already overburdened schools.

Quetzalcoatl Yes, I understand your point. Homosexual behavior however is learned. Just as heterosexual behavior is learned. Not all love relationships between young people are or should include the learning of sexual behavior.

In africa, the gross out factor remains to be dealt with. The aphorism; "..what goes on behind closed doors is none of your business" has not caught on. Maybe they have fewer doors. And they may be a more open and honest people as well.
