Where’s the proof?

While everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion, I couldn’t disagree more with the opinions expressed by Bobby Cox in his July 11 letter (‘‘Sex-ed courses promote alternate lifestyles”). What these courses promote is tolerance, something Mr. Cox needs more of.

I would challenge him to produce any relevant data to support his claim that there is a connection between homosexuality and this sex-ed curriculum.

As a 40-something heterosexual woman, I can guarantee to Mr. Cox that homosexuals existed back in the ‘‘good old days” when he was growing up.

And to compare homosexuality to pedophilia is simply irresponsible and outrageous. In fact, most pedophiles are heterosexuals.
