California lawmakers fight over bill to teach students about gay people's contributions
L.A. Times ^ | April 1, 2011 | Patrick McGreevy

Reporting from Sacramento -- As the battle over same-sex marriage makes its way through California's courts, another gay rights fight is smoldering in the Legislature.

Democratic lawmakers have revived a plan to require state schools to teach about the contributions of gay, lesbian and transgender Americans. They are reigniting a movement that halted five years ago when legislators approved such a requirement only to run into opposition from then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Now, with a Democrat in the governor's office, the lawmakers and gay rights activists are more hopeful that school curricula will be revised.

If implemented, the measure, which would revise social science textbooks, could have effects beyond California. The state is a major purchaser of educational texts, and publishers often produce books tailored to California that other states use as well.

The proposal would require that social science texts and other instruction include "a study of the role and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans … to the economic, political and social development of California and the United States of America, with particular emphasis on portraying the role of these groups in contemporary society."

Sen. Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) introduced the bill, SB 48....

Democrat, San FranSICKo, imagine that.

Gosh, is there enough hours in a day to show the contributions of wanting to put a square piece into a round hole?

The problem with pimping phonyass crap like this is that most of these so called “contributions” are nothing but bull**** to begin with.

These queers must have more money than the Feds do because they are buying legislators, left and right, local, state and federal as easy as you and I can buy a bag of M&M’s.

I hated having to use their stupid headline, but that’s the rule on FR. The concept of “gay people” making “contributions” to society is so far beyond sane, rational, decent or moral... I don’t know what planet these so-called educators live on, but they are practicing the most obscene child abuse and at taxpayer expense. What is WRONG with the voters in this state??????????

If this was to be completely candid and not just a one sided paean of praise, we might learn how much larger the AIDS problem in America is on account of them. IIRC, the USA is the only country on earth where homosexuals are the majority carriers of AIDS/HIV. Elsewhere it’s heterosexual relations, either normal or rape.

What, if any, do their “contributions” have to do with the fact that behind closed doors they compress fecal matter ?

3. Aids

Everyone should agree that AIDS is the most important contribution. Roughly ten years after homosexuality is delisted as a mental illness AIDS spreads all over the world, patient zero being a homosexual flight attendant.

Here's a question.

If homosexuality was still regarded as an illness and not mainstream ie. behavior still in the closet, would the world be healthier? Would AIDS be the problem it is and all the money spent on it, wouldn't some of it be going to cancer and heart disease research?

That does it. I’m going to lobby my Representative to press for legislation to teach children about the contributions of cat people, dog people, people who prefer light beer, and people who believe in the Easter Bunny but not in the Tooth Fairy.

What’s the issue? It’s a total Democrat state. The Democrats can pass laws sanctioning - - and enthusiastically endorsing - - every kind of degenerate perversion under the sun, and who can stop them?

Hey, normal taxpayers - - get out of that place now.

You don't understand. They have no intention of being private about their lifestyle. They fully intend to put it in your face, and in public, 24/7/365.

We teach how many wives Henry VIII had and why.

My problem with this is a bit more practical. It's not clear who the historical gays are. Sure, you will know about Alan Turing or Philip II and Richard the Lionheart but it's largely a very hazy area. The "out" or documented homosexual has been the exception not the rule. I'd say that's true even today.

This risk here is an activist agenda going beyond the clearly documented and getting into the kind of speculation that pops up about Abe Lincoln or James Buchanan or Hitler.

I find it interesting that transgendered folks are being lumped in with gay and lesbian. Maybe the composite category should be named “sexually confused”?

This reminds me of a Norm MacDonald comedy bit. I guess the new passages in the history books will go something like "John Smith was a leading figure in the building of California, a contributor to the state's constitution, a civic leader, and, oh yeah, he really liked penis! Just couldn't get enough of it!"
Check out Norm's hilarious bit, from which I appropriated liberally (pardon the word) on YouTube under "Norm MacDonald on Gay Pride;" beware, the language is very rough.
