Go ALL the way, and illustrate how FILTHY it is, and dont forget the contribution of HIV and AIDS.

What's next? Teaching the contributions of pediophiles? Oh wait; Mohammad! Nevermind...

Why mandate something without consulting or asking the peermission of parents who may not agree with this, I'm sure if this bill was put on the ballot that it will fail miserably because Californians want nothing to do with gay history of perversion and abomination!
So you would be in favor of not teaching anything about the history and contributions of Latinos to California history too? Do you know anything about California history?

The first public demonstration for Gay rights happened in California 2 years before Stonewall in New York. The importance of LGBTI people to the entertainment industry, which is centered in Californis, but of global significance is intimately tied up with the history of this state, is undeiable.

But I'll bet some of the phobes still believe that Rock Hudson was straight!

Another troll completely missing the point of the conversation.

1.) There wouldn't be any sexual reference, that would be innappropriate. They simply want to teach children of the struggle homosexuals and LGBT people had in order to achieve civil rights. Similar to what happened to African Americans and Hispanics half a century ago.

2.) Homosexuality and HIV / AIDS aren't linked, you can get HIV which then develops into AIDS over time by having either
a.) Unprotected sex, or usually unprotected a variety of sexual partners.

or b.) Unsafe drug use with unsterilised equipment.

3.) The Islam and Pedophilia reference? I don't get it. Students are taught about Islam, which is a perfectly normal and accepted religion in Religious Studies. This usually begins in elementary or high school.

Students in some schools are also taught about Pedophiles, and why you shouldn't get into a stranger's car, when they're about 8.

Your argument is disproved.

Who would want acceptance from someone as ignorant as yourself? I truly hate to break it to you but, unfortunately, homosexuals like yourself are the ones who reproduce and create "our kind". Just a tiny example of your sheer ignorance. Secondly the majority don't get to vote on the rights of the minority in this country.

I'd suggest you find your own small minded island somewhere and move yourself to it. And while you're at it you might spend some time in the very minor task of being able to spell and put together a readable sentence while using a bit of punctuation. You make yourself appear to be a character from the movie "Dumb and Dumber" only dumber. Just because you can get to the library to use a computer doesn't mean you should try to use it to communicate.

You gays have never made sense from the beginning, this law is nothing more than a vain attempt by your kind to put yourself on a pedestal of supremacy by claiming that you have made some special contribution to mankind. Now if you are really aware of history, maybe you can explain here which particular group of people made California history, I don't really understand why you have to target the Latinos because it is a well known fact that history is made not by just one special group but by all the citizens of this state, not just a few special gays!

One day in every month this sexy, hormone enhanced fag comes out of her apartment wearing the shortest hot pants and a red scarf on her neck. He makes sure the hunks in the neighborhood notice him/her and when they ask about the red scarf, he/she tells them,

"Boys, it's my special day today, I'm red all over and safe for your reamers."

Rather than point out how you miss the focus entirely due to your xenophobia and pure ignorance, I invite you to explain and then belittle the contributions to the world of Tschaikovsky, Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo.

What you need to explain is what mandatory law was enacted that recognized their contributions to mankind? Don't you realize that it was their contributions alone that made the recognition possible without the need for a law?

Why would gays need a mandatory law just to make the whole world realize that they are contributing? Are you so desperate and insecure of your abominable status that you would resort to force feeding the children with your shameless propaganda?

Obviously Virginia schools are NOT real clear on spelling or grammar! Stay in your toilet state. I have never set foot in that sink hole, though having been to New York and even Washington DC.

We can get by WONDERFULLY without you. Keep your nose in your own business...and start by finishing 7th grade.

Nice talk for Richmond. "Where the Bay Area's janitors and dishwashers live and play!"

I was there a couple of times on the way to Berkeley. The memory of Barrett Ave. still makes me cringe in terror. Clean up your own yard before you start on other people's.

Forget about this one, Golem -- you can tell by the writing that there's not a lot of intelligence here! You gave it a shot, though, but your point went right over his head :o)
