Skip to comments.California elementary schools to use pro-LGBT history textbooks
Posted on 11/15/2017 5:19:44 PM PST by ForYourChildren
Children in California will be learning to identify historical personages by their sexuality.
The Advocate reported that the California state board of education approved “10 LGBT-inclusive history textbooks” for elementary school students in grades K-8 last week. It also rejected two textbooks on the grounds that they did not include “LGBT history.” The exclusion of LGBT history violates California’s FAIR Education Act.
The FAIR Education Act, once informally called the LGBT History Bill, was written by Senator Mark Leno. FAIR stands for “Fair, Accurate, Inclusive, and Respectful.” It ensures that the political, economic and social contributions of people with disabilities as well as those people identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender are included in textbooks of California’s state-funded schools. It also added sexual orientation and religion to a list of characteristics that California schools already could not present in a negative way.
In 2008, Mark Leno became the first openly gay man to be elected to the California State Senate. He introduced the LGBT History Bill in 2011. Fifty-eight other bills penned by Leno were made into law, including the California Universal HealthCare Act and the establishment of Harvey Milk Day in California.
When the LGBT History Bill was presented, there was opposition from traditional family organizations. Candi Cushman of Focus on the Family told LifeSiteNews that the Bill was unnecessary because “California has some of the most pro-active laws in the nation in this regard already on the books.”

Approval of these textbooks means that California schools will now have access to approved materials that accurately represent LGBTQ people
Renata Moreira, executive director of the pro-homosexuality Our Family Coalition, told the Advocate that LGBTQ students, and those with LGBTQ families, will finally be able to see themselves and our history accurately reflected in textbooks in California.
George Takei approves
But they don’t protect the schools from shooters which I suppose is less important than having LGBT favored books.
To know who rules over you, find those whom you are not allowed to criticize.
Get your children OUT of the Public Schools in this godforsaken State.
Poofters on the march (to drag everyone to hell with them that they can).
Waiting with bated breath to read the history of the D-Day assault on rainbow beach by the all gay homo-brigade and its victories on the battlefield.
Recruitment drive for LGBT fodder
This ought to keep Mexicans from bringing their children to CA for an education. What they’ll be learning will groom them to be meat for the vultures in this ungodly movement.
Do they get to read DSM-5?
Regardless of the state, GET YOUR CHILDREN OUT!!!!
Remember: Nearly every teacher in this nation was trained by godless Marxists in Marxist run colleges and universities.
Because SEXUALITY is THE MOST IMPORTANT THING about everybody/anybody!
Since gays only recently came out of the closets how does anyone know what they really contributed to history.
it matters not.
They'll just make up history and if you dare to question its authenticity, you'll be branded as a *hater*, and *anti*, and *homophobic*.
