A bill requiring students to learn about the contributions homosexuals have made to society and that would remove sex-specific terms such as "mom" and "dad" from textbooks has passed another hurdle on the way to becoming the law of the land in California.
Having already been approved by the state's Senate Judiciary Committee, SB 1437, which would mandate grades 1-12 buy books "accurately" portraying "the sexual diversity of our society," got the nod yesterday of the Senate Education Committee.
The bill also requires students hear history lessons on "the contributions of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender to the economic, political, and social development of California and the United States of America."
"This bill is the most extreme effort thus far to transform our public schools into institutions of indoctrination that disregard all notions of the traditional family unit," said Karen England, executive director of Capitol Resource Institute. "SB 1437 seeks to eliminate all 'stereotypes' of the traditional family so that young children are brainwashed into believing that families with moms and dads are irrelevant."
SB 1437 not only affects textbooks and instructional materials for kindergarten and grades 1-12, it also affects all school-sponsored activities.
"School-sponsored activities include everything from cheerleading and sports activities to the prom," said England. "Under SB 1437 school districts would likely be prohibited from having a 'prom king and queen' because that would show bias based on gender and sexual orientation."
England also says the bill would likely do away with dress codes and would force the accommodation of transsexuals on girl-specific or boy-specific sports teams.
England says the measure amounts to unneeded social experimentation.
"SB 1437 disregards the religious and moral convictions of parents and students and will result in reverse discrimination," she said.
Sponsored by Democratic Sen. Sheila Kuehl – a lesbian actress best known for playing Zelda in "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis" in the 1960s – the legislation would add "gender" (actual or perceived) and "sexual orientation" to the law that prohibits California public schools from having textbooks, teaching materials, instruction or "school-sponsored activities" that reflect adversely upon people based on characteristics like race, creed and handicap.
Sen. Sheila Kuehl
"We've been working since 1995 to try to improve the climate in schools for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender kids, as well as those kids who are just thought to be gay, because there is an enormous amount of harassment and discrimination at stake," Kuehl explained. "Teaching materials mostly contain negative or adverse views of us, and that's when they mention us at all."
"In textbooks, it's as if there's no gay people in California at all, so forget about it," she added.
Good lord, Kaliforina is becoming more and more freakish everyday.

So... what is the point of this? She feeling left out or something?
This makes no sense whatsoever. It doesn't even improve anything for GLBT students, it's just more BS designed to force people to bow down to the minority. It's not like there's anything offensive to them in textbooks or schools, so why are they trying to change it?
I have nothing against the normal homosexual person, but people like this piss me off.
mod edit: that went a bit too far
 Sorry folks, it's a common term where I'm from. [/edit]

Those text books won't find their way to Tennessee anytime soon. This just adds to my thinking that I will never live in Cali...ever.

Textbooks...blah. My big beef comes with history textbooks. The authors of such junk write them as if history was all happy and politically correct when history is anything but those 2 things.
If mom and dad are banished, did George Washington ever tell his father he cut down the cherry tree?
what the!!!!!!!!!! transsexuals on sports teams. Reminds me of when the Soviets found male athletes without the y chromosome. At the time the olympics determined gender via blood tests because a physical check (drop your pants) was too intrusive.
