Do you think that the Gay Rights Movement should be taught as History?

State measure SB-48 would require schools to include homosexual and transgender Americans in their curriculum.

The measure has already passed the state Senate and is now before the General Assembly.

If passed, the bill would likely have a nationwide impact. California is such a big buyer of text books that publishers often include the state's curriculum in text books sold to other states.

Supporters of the bill believe the updated textbooks will help prevent gay students from being harassed or bullied.

Critics say the measure is an attempt to brainwash students into becoming pro-gay political activists.

A similar bill has passed in California before, but former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed it.

  • The GAY RIGHTS MOVEMENT? Absolutely not. Homosexuality is a fact of life and should be taught in the setting of human sexuality but definitely not as propaganda which is what is being promoted. This is just another left-wing radical progressive method of desensitizing the masses to an agenda of level outcomes for all and individuality for none. I think there should be a STRAIGHT RIGHTS MOVEMENT to free the heterosexuals from exposure to GAY RIGHTS parades and news coverage!

  • State measure SB-48 would require schools to include homosexual and transgender black Americans in their curriculum.

    Supporters of the bill believe the updated textbooks will help prevent gay black students from being harassed or bullied.

    Critics say the measure is an attempt to brainwash students into becoming pro-gay black political activists.


    Instead of waiting for one of us to point this out to you every time you have a question about anything gay-related, do us a favor and look at it that way yourself

  • Not history,but psychology classes may be more appropriate for it.



    Please explain to me how the gay RIGHTS movement is in anyway related to psychology. Though I suppose we could examine the brain patterns of bigots who think theat gays shouldn't have equal rights. Though I think that's getting more into abnormal psychology.

  • Absolutely! We are living history right now, our schools should be taking advantage of that fact & applying what's taught in the classroom to what is taking place.

  • Suzzanna, why not? You don't have to agree that gays SHOULD be given rights, the fact is that they ARE being given rights. Why shouldn't kids learn about current events, at least?

  • I agree that it should be discussed in schools, but more as Current Events. The final chapter hasn't been written yet, as the battle for equal rights isn't finished. I think once gays have been granted the same rights as heterosexuals, then we can (and should) add it to the History books.
