Another paranoid homeschooler is blathering about public schools brainwashing kids and how she will protect her kids from stuff like REAL SCIENCE. Why I Homeschool--Part Four: (I can brainwash my own kids, thankyouverymuch!). She of course is partly right by choosing what to teach and how to teach it you do have a tremendous amount of power when it comes to shaping a child's mind.
Apparently Lisa Luper's understanding of SCIENCE is woefully inadequate, but then what can you expect from someone who thinks evolution is silly. Why really learn about it from actual Science Textbooks, when you can dismiss it as silly and turn to an ancient book full of myths and legends (aka The Bible) for your Science instruction.
OK, I don't completely agree with the PC idea that being homosexual is OK I tend to view it as a Gender Identity Disorder. But the author of this nonsense completely ignores the fact that sometimes "a person is born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t seem
to fit the typical definitions of female or male. For example, a person
might be born appearing to be female on the outside, but having mostly
male-typical anatomy on the inside. Or a person may be born with
genitals that seem to be in-between the usual male and female types—for
example, a girl may be born with a noticeably large clitoris, or lacking
a vaginal opening, or a boy may be born with a notably small penis, or
with a scrotum that is divided so that it has formed more like labia. Or
a person may be born with mosaic genetics, so that some of her cells
have XX chromosomes and some of them have XY" You can read more about Intersex People here. But then this is SCIENCE so possibly Luper isn't ignoring it so much as she is ignorant of the condition.
Global Warming is a fact not a fantasy someone cooked up to give Luper heartburn, so is the fact the world is becoming overpopulated. How we deal with Global Warming and Overpopulation will determine if our species survives and what kind of standard of living our species will enjoy. So far the deniers seem to be doing a pretty good job of insuring that we will continue on our hedonistic way polluting the earth and spitting out babies until all the fossil fuels are depleted and droughts and food shortages are common. But PLEASE don't try to explain the Science behind Global Warming to them if it doesn't fit into their Biblical World View they don't want to hear it.
Not all homeschoolers are ANTI-SCIENCE and many of us disagree with her viewpoints.
