Also, the benefits homosexuals and bisexuals receive as a result of claiming heterosexual identity or denying homosexual or bisexual identity

As you can imagine, I get on with my day and don’t really think about ‘the talk’.l In fact I put it completely out of my head. Three O’clock rolls around and I once again return to the school to pick Martha up. She gets into the car all animated and what can only be described as hyper. She begins to tell me that 3 people fainted in school today. “Fainted?” I ask very inquisitively . ‘Yes’ she says, ‘they fainted because of the talk’ ‘What do you mean 3 people fainted?’ I again ask. It should be noted here that 3 people in her class amounts to one third of the entire class, there are 9 children in total in sixth class. “Yes” she says, “it happened when they were showing the movie”. ‘Movie! What movie?’ I am almost shouting at this point and thinking what the hell have I allowed my daughter to participate in.

“Martha”, I say almost calmly, “what movie did they show you?” “Oh. you know the one where they show you on how to have sex to make a baby”. Bloody hell I say to myself. I’m not even sure how that happens because anytime it has I was 3 sheets to the wind.

I begin to probe a little further only to discover that it was an animation of the act of procreation. All approved by the government and education board. I am now somewhat relieve. However it should also be noted at this point that all the mothers got the same story from there little darlings and the amount of text messages and phone calls that ensured after the ‘talk’ were uncountable. This you say is all very normal in the course of events of children, school, coming of age and the infamous “talk”.
