Sea Monsters

As summer warms up, you're probably hanging around the lake or ocean more and more to keep cool. Well why not get out your binoculars and keep an eye out for legendary sea creatures likes the Lock Ness Monster and the Ogopogo!

Cryptozoology Craze

So some wacky scientists have come up with a fancy name for studying sea monsters and other animals that have not been proven to exist; it’s called Cryptozoology. Some people have made Cryptozoology their main profession. They spend their whole lives hunting for these monsters … unfortunately none of them have yet found anything.

Loch Ness Mania

The Loch Ness Monster is the most popular sea monster. The hype of “Nessie” (it’s nickname) began way back in 1933 in Scotland. Many sighting of this 30-to-40-foot-long giant snake has been seen on land and in the Ocean. Movies, television shows, novels, comic books have all tried to raise awareness of the Loch Ness Monster, but almost 100 years later … there is still no scientific proof that Nessie exists.

The Ogopogo is another sea monster hiding in the Okanogan Lake in British Columbia, Canada. The Ogopogo is supposed to be 50 feet long! Native Americans originally saw him (or her) in the 1800s but there was even a search for the monster last year.

Picture Proof

The ocean covers more than 70% of the Earth’s surface, so it’s pretty easy for these sea monsters to hide. However, with video and digital photography so common these days, it’s amazing some of the discoveries people are recording. Here’s an example of a new creature/monster discovery caught on live video!

This angers me that they made such a big deal out of it. Like DisneyanimeLover said: "I think it's fine to talk about.

Should these things really be taught or talked about in sixth grade? Should the Holocaust? Should Slavery? Should the Civil Rights movement? Because each of those subjects are definitely more inappropriate than the LGBT and what they stand for and yet it continues to be taught by teachers and learned by children in grades as low as fourth grade. Compared to those events in history, the LGBT discussion seems more like The Cat In The Cat than an inappropriate topic. And besides if a student feels they are mature enough to want to boraden their perspective and thoughts then they should be allowed to do it and not be oppressed or told they're wrong because their views differ from the status quo. Should children really be taught sexuality outside of Specs Ed class? Be honest here, none of us would want our kids to go to school and be lectured on the LGBT.  Well, actually that's not entirely true. ^ It depends on the parents. If they are conservatives, then that'll be true. However, they're lots of liberals who wouldn't mind.  My school educates us on LGBTQ+ quite often, and the students don't mind. Most enjoy it. I've only heard one family complain, and they were conservative.  The teachers are people with political and social opinions as well, which makes it hard to teach fairly. What curriculum would there be?
