The term “sexual preference” used in this video is accurate. The correct term to use is sexual orientation, people do not choose where the fall on the continuum of sexual orientation.
While I appreciate the effort the time line for information in this video is also way off, much of this material needs to be discussed in the early teen years, not high school. Additionally this video only addresses saying “No” but not how to avoid making someone else feel uncomfortable or worse.
Meant to say the term “sexual preference” is inaccurate.
