I'm prideful of myself because of my Morality Final?
Ok, bit of a long story.
So, Morality is basically Sex Ed mixed with taking the Catholic Values from the bible, and then applying it to modern life. Except, the entire course is monitored by the diocies and its rather...Its sort of censored in what it can teach.
So, we finally move into sexuality and the bash on the ideas of Condoms, Abortion, and anything that could possibly prevent life (Most of which resulted in quite the debate between my teacher and I, much to the dismay of my class). Quickly after that, We get a very small thing about homosexuality.
And I quote from my notes, "Its ok to accept the person for who they are, but not if they act upon it."
I called bullshit on that. I feel bad for my teacher because I don't think he believed it himself but had to teach it anyways. I was so pissed about that, espicially since there was nothing on Pansexuality, Asexuality, Bisexuality (This should at least be mentioned.) or Transexuality, and Homosexuality got so snubed on.
What they did say also didn't help when my classmates openly called my faggot and the teacher didn't catch it. Things are changing because I joined the Diversity Club and the Principal took a persional interest in the case, but what was said in the course all but openly encouraged them calling me that.
Anyways, skip ahead to the final. Before finals, We got a 90 page packet to fill out with what we were to cover on the final. How big was the actual final? 20 questions. I was so mad about that. What was one of the questions on said final? What is the Ctaholic Church's ruling on Homosexuality? I was tempted to simply leave that it was bullshit and nothing more. Instead, I answered what the ruling was, AND THEN proceded to call it bullshit and explain why it was messed up.
At the end of the final, We got an extra credit question on how to improve the course. Spent ten pages of the test booklet absolutely bashing the course in its entirety for being extremely outdated, focusing entirely on the catholic view on things rather than other perspectives. Yes, its a catholic course, but that doesn't mean every student taking it is in fact catholic, and when the best excuse for not having sex your course can give is to "Take Jesus on your date", I think they might need to think outside the box.
I also bashed on how homosexuality was completely adverted in the entirety of the course. A bit of digging revealed why they don't. "Its a sensative subject." I was told. Of course its a freaking sensative subject but not taking about it isn't going to solve anything. This was the perfect oportunity to teach them about the different sexualities and, with numerious people calling me a fag, A great time to dispell harsh rumors about the sexualities and explain why what they're doing is wrong.
Also, it bugged me that he went to great lengths to pretty much portray STDs as imposisble to avoid, when they are avoidable if you and your partner get yourselves tested before hand. Another reason why their "Sex is bad for you" arguement falls through.
So, in all, I felt good after that final even though I'll potentially fail the course for my calling them out. I don't care.
