Austin school district cancels UT play about same-sex penguin parents

There are 25 comments on the www.statesman.com story from Nov 9, 2012, titled Austin school district cancels UT play about same-sex penguin parents. In it, www.statesman.com reports that:

Jonathan Saenz, president of the conservative Texas Values group, said he believes the district made the right decision.

“We define marriage very clearly in the state of Texas. So if you have a play that tries to push and promote a different marriage definition, which is clearly illegal, it leads students to ask questions about it, and it leads to the discussion of sex,” Saenz said.

(I just had to show y'all that quote)

Most of the rest of the world just gapes and wags their heads in disbelief about just how nuts Americans can be about sexual matters.

Yeah. That one's hard for browsers to load. Especially Internet Explorer. Try it with Firefox.

Try this one.

You have to examine the footnotes to check the reliability of Wikipedia. It's usually pretty sound, but the editors are overworked.

gay animals? lol don't you mean bisexual animals. homosexuals when will you stop looking upto animals to justify your perversion? i am getting tired of repeating these, but pedophiles have far greater evidence in looking upto animals. as animals mate with their young far more often lets not dismiss incest especially in family of pride lions. its natural so why don't those into incest claim this as justification? it won't be long because soon all deviants will be looking upto animals.

My MARRIAGE to my lovely WIFE (we are a happily-married lesbian FAMILY) is NOT "inferior". You need to work on your own relationship until it is perfect.

In other words, grow UP and get a life.

A gay marriage is not "illegal" in Texas. Any religious leader could marry 2 people in Texas if he or she wanted to and doing so would not be "illegal". It might not be legally recognized by the state, but that's a separate question.

Furthermore, if a gay couple, legally married in Iowa, New York, or any other jurisdiction that legally sanctions it, visits Texas, their marriage is not suddenly "illega" and theya re not suddenly "unmarried".

This guy's a bozo.

AND I am tired of repeating this! Homosexuality has been documented in over 1000 species, but homophobia in only one. Which seems natural to you?

The lesson we can take from the non-human animal observations is that homosexuality occurs where there is no "higher" human brain structures. This suggests that sexuality originates in structure that the human animal shares with non-human animals. In the "pre-human" parts of the brain, so to speak.

We don't look "upto" animals.

I have a question that you might answer.

Why do ALL male mammals have nipples ?
