Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender literature are included in the California Department of Education's newest reading list for students,prompting complaints from critics who say a leftist agenda is being pushed on kids, the San Jose Mercury News reported.
Controversial topics have been introduced to California students in the past, but this is the first time the state has put forth works celebrated by the Stonewall Book Awards, which since 1971 has recognized LGBT literature, according to the newspaper.

One more reason to leave California. Pretty soon, it will only be the teachers, the politicians, and the homosexuals left.
Don't forget the illegals.......
I have to say: if these books are for the past puberty set, they already know there are homosexuals.
Also, I do not believe that a sexually mature person reads a book about or featuring gays and sees it as a new potential lifestyle. Even back in my day we read stories with sexuality in them in high school. Doesn’t “A Separate Peace” have homosexual themes? I doubt you can turn straight kids gay or gay kids straight by reading a book about the others.
You know things are getting bad when you’ve never hated terrorists more but you secretly wish they just go ahead and nuke the WH. It’s not anything I’d be a part of but I might actually write them a than you letter if they succeeded at this point in our country’s history.
and sheeple parents won’t do a danged thing
But not the Bible riiight?
And the illegal aliens.
(My fault for leaving that part off...)
What you don’t understand, Yaelle, is that these books have been pushed into the faces of children a well-organized network of homosexuals who have infiltrated the decision-making process, who are manipulating the process of book selection process everywhere they can. You can get you won’t find books that say homosexuality is a choice or a point about psychological methods for helping people leave homosexual lifestyles. They big lies are winning. The process of book selection has been compromised big time.
The next award on the horizon will be awards for books about pedophilia and awards for books about incest. They confuse the dim-witted and the fearful by setting up fancy-sounding awards so that schools and bookstores and libraries will buy them.
This reminds me..... Last night my regular shows weren’t on so I made the mistake of flipping on Gray’s Anatomy. The show opens with a lesbian couple sex scene. It was just disgusting. I just couldn’t believe the lines that are crossed now without batting an eye. Everything is gay 24/7. It is just sickening how this country is bowing down to and trying to normalize a very small percentage of the population.
I would not read a homo book. I even hate when some of the books I read have homos in it.
They will start with so called “innocent” books with homo themes and soon start with homo porn. Next up will be graphic books with pics of fisting, felching and whatever deviant activities they engage in. That is the way with these perverts.
Grey’s Anatomy has been gay since day one!
and because Kalifornia students can’t read, these will be picture books composed entirely of kinky porn.
It’ll be just fitting if they’re pop-up books.....
I haven’t watched since Person of Interest started. I knew it had gay couple but I couldn’t believe the extent to which they are now pushing the envelope. It’s just appalling. Made my stomach turn.
It’s more a question of depriving kids of a good education by putting forward substandard literature with only the LGBT cachet as justification.
They better keep that book at school, If my kid came home with one it would go in the trash where it belongs.
The “public school” is the Bus Ministry of the State Church of Humanism.
The “public school”, including the “charter school”, is BY FAR, the largest, most expensive, most subversive, and most destructive entitlement program in the country.
The “public school” is better understood as the “government school collective”.
It is silly to imagine that you can fix the public schools, because the very concept itself is collectivist.
It is hypocritical to submit your children to an authority with whom you fundamentally disagree. Children do not trust hypocrites, so this will undermine your own authority, let alone influence, with your children.
Any child that comes out of the government school collective with their moral compass and common sense intact does so in spite of the government school indoctrination, not because of it.
To understand the content and compass of modern education, see ...
If you want to win the culture war, have lots of children (see my tagline) and homeschool them or form your own school cooperative with your church or synagogue and like-minded friends and relatives.
Nobody loves your children more than you do.
Nobody can teach your children better than you can.
Nobody knows your children better than you do.
Your children would love nothing better than to be taught by you, if you start doing so before they are corrupted by the government school collective.
If you have children, make whatever sacrifices you must to get them out of the public schools.
DO NOT FEED THE BEAST!
Especially not with your own children.
And DO NOT TAKE GOVERNMENT “EDUCATION” MONEY!
He that pays the piper calls the tune, and that’s especially true for any government entitlement program.
One more reason why my child goes to a private Christian school...
You stole my answer.
BTW they caught those kids down in Florida.
Terrorists are busily at work IN the WH...
Everything that enters the mind through the senses has an affect, no matter how old the person is. That is why advertising “works”. That is why discriminating people don’t let crap into their minds via their eyes/ears etc.

There is more than meets the eye to this "gay is good" onslaught. The actual percentage of "practicing" homosexuals is quite small, and it is also not a stable number, as people decide to be "gay" and then often decide not to any more. Since it is a behavior, and not a set in stone identity, many people do leave, and more would if they knew that they weren't born that way.
So, why are we now being force fed faggotry like geese being fattened for slaughter?
Part of communist/socialist/revolutionary plans to utterly destroy the country. When morality is destroyed, families are destroyed. When many families are destroyed (or never happened in the first place, such as the current 40% of children in the US now born to unmarried mothers), the children grow up largely ruined. When the population is thus damaged, they are much easier to control. It's not difficult to understand this.
Anyone wanting on/off either list, FREEPMAIL me.
It’s as much the public school system that is to blame, imho.
Our public school system is determined to push this agenda, regardless of what parents want. Parochial schools and home schooling are our only real options.
Yes indeed, the public school system is now coming into its own. John Dewey, the father of modern education, was a socialists. Progressing America has wonderful reserached articles about this...
Maybe he can provide a link to something about Dewey. He wanted to produce drones who would not be influenced by their parents, religion and other contaminating backward influences.
What’s happening in our public schools is a national tragedy, and a threat to our constitution.
You are aware that it is the public that is elected to school boards and they make these decisions. If you want different decisions elect different members.
HA HA HA you are very funny.
It is the leftist education colleges and textbooks. I have a good friend who ran for the school board and was able to accomplish almost nothing. Becuase the rest of the school board were the usual bureaucratic leftist pukes.
Any parent with any sense will rip his/her kids out of public school on Monday, if they haven’t already. I realize that you work as a teacher in a public school so you do not like this viewpoint.
It's "Glee" for the tone-deaf nerds, LOL!
And they will stay that way unless they are voted out.
You have odd faith that a few sound rational people can change the entire public school system from communist/homonazi/feminazi/drone indoctrination centers to real education.
John Dewey, the father of modern education, was a socialist. The very way schools are organized and set up is designed to destroy individuality and rational congnitive thinking.
It’s pointless to even try to save the system. The best thing that could happen (and I have no dout it will) is for the economy to really collapse, and then there won’t be any money to animate the corpse of public education any more. Families, churches, and local communities will step up to the plate and do an infinitely better job educating the young.
Government K-12 schooling has always been a threat to our Constitution. It only took one to three generations of socialist-entitlement and single-payer K-12 indoctrination to give the nation Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Propaganda is a highly effective tool of the Left, especially when used on young minds.
200 plus years ago thee were people like you, called loyalists. They just knew that they would never be able to stand up to the might of the British empire. Fortunately there were like men like Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Adams, and Paine that were able to stir the hearts and minds of their countrymen. They refused to accept the status quo, they were willing to put it on the line.
Time to change your tagline.
