I happened upon the textbook from a relative's community college mandatory Health course. I am paraphrasing, but in the chapter on Human Sexuality, it presented homosexuality as existing in every culture throughout history and therefore normal and healthy. It specifically said that some people bring up AIDS and other diseases as arguments against gay behavior, but that these objections were merely excuses for bigotry. It went on to say that studies by the American Family Psychology Association (or something like that - it appeared to be a gay agenda front group given an innocuous and scientific sounding name) showed that homosexual couples actually had better communiation skills than heterosexuals. It was pure, unadulterated propaganda.

I was also concerned that instead of the Modern Language Association MLA style guide, colleges now have students write papers using the American Psychological Association APA style guide, which is chock full of inclusive and gay promoting recommendations for scholarly papers, including don't assume a child's parents are male and female, and give examples of alternative relationships, etc., ad nauseum.

At first I could not fathom what psychologists had to do with establishing standards for writing term papers. MLA seemed more logical. Then it dawned. He who controls the language rules.

Exactly what so much of the PC crap is all about. Redefining words to twist and control the emotions of the public. A "rain forest" sounds so much more vunerable than a "jungle" does...
