This thread was meant to discuss the potential of being an educator who is open/out. My discussions regarding sexuality education were the focus of the other thread. Sadly, since this thread stemmed from the first, I can understand the layover and perceived meaning of my posts here (of course, I don't remember everything I said here, so I hope I'm not mistaken!). I agree with all of Tigers points--Tigers, you spoke them well. Thank you. I don't think I ever mentioned me discussing my sexual behavior with students. As far as "sexuality," that spectrum has been defined on the other thread which was, interestingly enough, closed (and I have no intention of resurrecting it). My main focus here was the existence of other gay teachers and how others handled this situation in their schools. I received that feedback, plus the personal/professional opinions of others. Thanks, all.
