Of course it'd be a senator from San Francisco, where else would you expect:
A state lawmaker wants a new lesson plan for California classrooms. He wants to recognize the contributions made by gay Americans.Of course, homosexuality is a behavior that should never be compared to something genetic like race, but why spoil a good leftwing propaganda?
Senator Mark Leno of San Francisco is proposing Senate Bill 48, known as the Fair Education Act. It would require classroom text books to be re-written with historical details about the gay movement in America and California. The books would also highlight gay people who have played a significant role in our country's history.
Some parents are fighting the option of a gay lesson plan for students. Dianna Awuy believes it's cool if you're gay, but she thinks the gay agenda shouldn't be forced onto students. "When they grow up they're going to be emotionally scared, because they don't know about gay and stuff like that."
Members of Equality California are promoting the Senate bill. They feel it's about time LGBT contributions are known to all students. Mario Guerrero says this bill is far from an agenda. "The LGBT community has our civil rights has it's beginning, so just talking about that, or important authors or important individuals that describe themselves as being part of the community should not be overlooked in history."
The bill is only in the discussion phase now. Parents and lawmakers will get a chance to give their opinions as the proposal moves forward in the Assembly. If approved, it could be a year or two before those new textbooks with gay contributions are printed.
