It should be treated just like every other marriage and discussed just as much as any other marriage is...because it is!

It should be discussed to the same extent as marriage and family in general. No more, no less.

Why not? Kids tv shows portray LGBT issues, then there is the internet that a lot of kids have right at their fingertips all day, they can look up anything. Many parents and grandparents are intolerant of LGBT's, so obviously a child will get a skewed "education" at home. 5th or 6th grade is a good time to start, IMHO

I don't think marriage of should be discussed at school as the parents of many kids now days are in common law partnership.
Schools just need to stick to providing good sex education.

Gay sex, no. Gay marriage -- why not? Some of those kids will be gay, why not teach them it's normal and okay and they can be happy?

Perhaps there needs to be a boundary line between the grades/years of what is appropriate and not appropriate to discuss.
