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.

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.
How many Cowboys dressed as women, and rode side-saddle?
Stop making these fags and lesbos part of my life. Just go away.
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.
Education for the children alright..straight up from the pits of hell to corrupt their souls. This is a form of pedophilia being pushed by the DemonCrats with taxpayers $$.
There’s a day of reckoning coming....
Luckily California doesn’t have any other concerns...otherwise they wouldn’t have time for this indulgence.
Public education = communist indoctrination.
While you were out job hunting.......
And what other stuff than AIDS did these degenerates contribute?
Sodomy and spreading AIDS nothing more.
All part of the communist plan to destroy America from within.
How can 2% of the US population have such an effect on our culture?
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.
The tail wagging the dog, so to speak.
What, if any, do their “contributions” have to do with the fact that behind closed doors they compress fecal matter ?
2. Interior Decor
I think that about covers it.
Satan is alive and well in tahe West Coast!
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.
“Now class, name the greatest contribution gays have made to society. Yes Johnny?”
“Detention for you, you intolerant little snot!”
/ I can just see it now.
4. Male airline stewards. I get uncomfortable when I am served by such. I mean who knows where those hands have been.
Ya, we wouldn’t want to provide students with a foundation to grow from....must make the 2 percenters feel important......
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.
Be sure to include GaÃ«tan Dugas—Patient Zero.
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.
Run, don’t walk. Do not be “the last white farmer in Zimbabwe”.
Must we know what people written about in school books did in the privacy of their bedrooms??
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.
Didn't you know? The homos, the illegal aliens, and the muzzies BUILT America. What's wrong with you?
Yeah,THATS stuff to be proud of.
“How can 2% of the US population have such an effect on our culture?”
Never underestimate the raw power of the Hissy Fit.
CA deserves to rot.
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”?
Male airline stewards. I get uncomfortable when I am served by such. I mean who knows where those hands have been
Coffee,tea or me.
Naaa...why teach kids math, reading, writing...etc. Learning about perversion is much better.
It’s because homosexuals are not born, they are recruited.
All the perverted homos have did is defend a perversion!
