Default I kissed a girl and I liked it

I was listening to my favorite station this morning (rarity, since my hubby was driving and only likes classic rock), and this catchy song came on (lyrics below). I am not sure how I feel about my 11 year old daughter humming this under her breathe. I respect the opinion of most people in this forum, and was hoping for your say.

I Kissed a Girl by Katy Perry: Katy Perry - Official Website

This was never the way I planned
Not my intention
I got so brave, drink in hand
Lost my discretion
It's not what, I'm used to
Just wanna try you on
I'm curious for you
Caught my attention

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don't mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it

No, I don't even know your name
It doesn't matter
Your my experimental game
Just human nature
It's not what, good girls do
Not how they should behave
My head gets so confused
Hard to obey

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don't mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it

Us girls we are so magical
Soft skin, red lips, so kissable
Hard to resist so touchable
Too good to deny it
Ain't no big deal, it's innocent

I kissed a girl and I liked it
The taste of her cherry chapstick
I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don't mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight
I kissed a girl and I liked it
I liked it

Basically, I think it's hard enough for parents to deal with the sex-loaded environment our children are exposed to. Is it wrong of me, who am already overwhelmed with having to explain the birds and the bees to my daughter, to also now feel cornered into introducing her to homosexuality? I hope you can view this in light of the way I am putting it out there, as parental concern. Is there a "right age" or a "wrong age" for these topics to be discussed with kids?

The right age and/or wrong age SHOULD be based on each individual parent...

But you shouldn't worry about it, because there are groups that work with schools that intentionally undermine your concern and teach your children about "introducing her to homosexuality" whether you like it or not...

Looks like the song did your work for you. Hey how you gonna tell your kids their all gonna die sometime. That would seem a little more traumatic to me. Some things are a little uncomfortable. Thats life.

I like kissing girls too.

You should join forces with my hubby who almost sh** a brick when the Rosie O'Donnell special hit Nickelodeon. He has not caught the gist of this song yet.

My daughter started asking questions about what it means to be gay when she was 5 or 6 - kids are not blind. I just don't think I am comfortable with having it forced on me (or her) like this.

Well I don't want you to scare the kid. Just making a point. Bluntly

It's forced on them through the schools...

Don't believe me?...

Same-sex teaching upheld

Quote:
A federal judge yesterday dismissed a suit by two couples who contended that the Lexington public school system violated their constitutional rights by teaching their young children about same-sex couples, but the ruling is unlikely to end a controversy that has roiled the district for nearly two years.

The lawyer for the two couples said they would appeal the ruling, which was praised by Lexington educators and civil libertarians but skewered by supporters of the parents. The controversy has made the affluent town a lightning rod on talk shows and on blogs and prompted the school superintendent to defend the curriculum on national television and radio programs.

In his 38-page decision, Chief Judge Mark L. Wolf of US District Court said that under the US Constitution, public schools are "entitled to teach anything that is reasonably related to the goals of preparing students to become engaged and productive citizens in our democracy."...

...David Parker said the dispute is really about who has the final say over what children are taught, parents or educators.

"The parents have the fundamental right to be the primary directors of their children's upbringing and moral education, and the current ruling of this court undermines and burdens parents and their parental rights," he said.

The suit also complained that parents weren't given advance notice about the lesson content, and Parker said the ruling leaves that unresolved...

...The couples sued in 2006, after Jacob Parker brought home books from the Joseph Estrabrook Elementary School about different families, including same-sex couples. One of the books in his "diversity book bag" in kindergarten was "Who's in a Family?"

Joey Wirthlin was exposed to similar material in the first grade at the same school, said the complaint. His teacher read aloud "King & King," a fairy tale about a prince who rejects his mother's entreaties to marry a princess. The prince ends up falling in love with and marrying a prince. The book concludes when the two princes kiss.

Default Re: I kissed a girl and I liked it

Maybe that's why my daughter asked me what it meant to be gay when she was 6 or so, . I get notices from her school on other classes, that I might object to their teachings like say sex-ed, where they give me the option of her attending or not. I would not be against this topic being covered in school, as long as I am notified.

I kissed a girl just to try it
I hope my boyfriend don't mind it
It felt so wrong
It felt so right
Don't mean I'm in love tonight

Us girls we are so magical
Soft skin, red lips, so kissable
Hard to resist so touchable
Too good to deny it
Ain't no big deal, it's innocent

So now I don't only have to worry about telling my daughter how boys will try to get in her pants, but also how girls might try to get in her pants. And let's not forget to introduce her to the concept of death while we're at it, Kids should come with a manual, I'm really starting to freak,
