The Yes on Prop. 8 Blog Roll

There are 279 comments on the lezgetreal.com story from Oct 22, 2008, titled The Yes on Prop. 8 Blog Roll. In it, lezgetreal.com reports that:

Yesterday the Yes on Prop. 8 campaign held a "Sick Out" where they kept their children home from school in protest of the $1 million dollar donation by the CTA.

Note to Yes on Prop h8ers, depriving your kids of an education is not the answer to The Marriage Crisis you have brought upon us all. This post is for all of the Yes on Prop. 8 advocates online who have contributed to the discriminatory measure by spreading their lies about what they call The Gay Agenda.

I guess those parents that kept their children home from school in protest want their children to grow up as ignorant as they are.

Keep them at home!!! Not just for a day either. Home school them to be little, bigoted, ignorant creeps.

Actually keeping children out of school because you disagree with a ballot initiative is child abuse...the subversive type. That is probably the day that they were teaching tolerance and they missed it. Too bad.

Child abuse, plain and simple.

Selecia Jones- JAX FL,
It is okay for the famlies who support Prop 8 to do this, yet when a PARENT suggests what a nice suprise it would be to have their children suprise their teacher who got married in S.F be outside
it is so wrong
Not only that but it is okay for prop 8 to continue to lie about the schools and they will not stop at any lies is just wrong
In my opinion it is the Yes on Prop 8 people who are hurting their children

I'll pretend that you had a point that makes sense and are just not able to articulate it properly.
Please reread your post and see if you can figure out what you were trying to say because I really can't.
This isn't an insult. I truly have no idea what you were trying to say.

What bothers me most is that SOME people use their civil liberties in this country to teach hate, division, prejudice, and bigotry to their children.

Freedom of speech and freedom of religion are fine, but indoctrinating children with ignorance and lies should be considered criminal child abuse. Wontonly breeding a nation of new Hitler Youth is not what your American freedoms are for!

Prop h8 backers still have no rational justification for their position--except the Evangelical Christian creedo that it is a Christian's right and duty to convert EVERYONE to their beliefs without respecting any differing beliefs... and that it is their further right and duty to FORCE their beliefs even upon those who refuse.

That's not religious freedom... it's dictatorial Theocracy, and it has NO place in a civilized nation.

To Prop 8, I say NO!

No hatred and discrimination in the California constitution! No "separate but equal" nonsense again! No prejudice-based legislation!

WE DIDN'T GET TO VOTE ON HETERO MARRIAGE--THEY DON'T HAVE THE R I G H T TO VOTE ON OURS!

No to Prop 8. No, no, a thousand times no!

(Unless you really want to leave it to THE GOVERNMENT to decide who you can or cannot marry!)

Just wasn't talked about just like being straight isn't talked about. Sex between a man and a woman or even you homos thoughts about sex shouldn't be taught in schools anyway. That's what being a parent is called. Parents have the ONLY right to teach their children about these matters and NOBODY else. So go ahead and try to pass this and I swear with my last dying breath your little gay kids will think it's just jim dandy to hump family members and even some barnyard animals.

Try and pretend to be someone and I might try and explain what I said
How this
On one hand it is perfectly okay to take your children to a rally for yes on Prop 8, but call parents who signed permission slips to have their children suprise their teacher in San Francisico wrong
This is being hypocritical
Get it

Glad to hear that you are disgusted. You have that right thanks to all of the God loving men whom gave you that right. As usual you are the dumb ass that wont even leave your name, all you can do is call names and ask for a fight because you haven't a clue on being a good person let alone a good American. Take your commie pinko left wing to china and join your fellow reds.

And you're calling US sick? Why do the people who oppose two un-related people from getting married always bring up incest, pedastery, bestiality and other offensive concepts that have NOTHING to do with falling in love?

The point is that you DO NOT want equality under the law for gay people. You want special rights for heterosexual people, and you want gay people to be second-class citizens. Sorry, not in MY America!

As for "when was it taught being gay was NOT OK"? Well, just about every day of school for me was some kind of message about it from the other students. They would bully anyone they perceived as gay, whether he was or not. There were several fights where kids who were perceived as "gay" (again, whehter they were or not) were beaten, some viciously. Some teachers would try to step in for fairness and equality, but other teachers, and many principals and other staff would simply say "they need to conform and behave themselves." I knew one kid who get beaten so badly, he had to spend over a month in the hospital recovering from the cuts, broken bones and internal bleeding he got. From what I understand, another few minutes of that kind of beating and he would have died.

How is that teaching that being gay is OK? When the people in charge don't do anything to stop this kind of behavior, they condone it. When parents teach thier kids that hating someone just because (s)he is different if ok, they teach the message that being gay is NOT ok. When someone is directly targeted for violence becuase (s)he is perceived as being gay, and then that person gets a slap on the wrist, it's delivering a clear message that being gay is NOT ok.

I sincerely hope for your childrens' sake that none of them come to the realization that they are gay. Some discover this about themselves early in life, and others later. Based on what you wrote, your children will probably want to kill themselves (which is very common in gay teens, by the way - it's one of the highest reasons for attempted gay suicide) considering how much hate and intolerance your post displays. I sincerely hope they prove to be stronger and smarter and more compassionate than you.

Be very careful when singling out one group and saying "Unworthy". You never know when it might sneak up and hit you back!

Morality is not taught in schools. Respect and tolerence is taught in schools. BIG DIFFERENCE. Nobody is telling these kids that you should all be gay or gay is the only way. They ARE teaching these kids to respect gay people the way you want to be respected. They are teaching them that all people are different in their own way and that they should respect each others differences. And as far as tecahing about homosexuality, SEX EDUCATION IS NOT MANDATORY IN CALIFORNIA. Kids CANNOT be forced to learn about homo-sex if they dont want to.

What about teaching our kids to just be respectful human beings? teach them to be tolerant of people who are different from them in color, religious background and social economic backgrounds. Teach them to respect the elderly and have good manners while in public. Teach them to be upstanding, caring and decent human beings who have the ability to keep an open mind when it comes to gay people, old people, nerdy people, straight people, black people, purple people, yellow people, rich people, poor people, cute people, ugly people, skinny people, fat people, smart people, dumb people etc...the list is endless...teach the children tolerance, compassion and integrity. This is what's missing.

Next you will vote for only homos to teach P.E. in schools. Just because this is tolerable to you doesn't mean it HAS to be tolerable to me. Welcome to America! Just think of those Klan members teaching their kids...Is it right? YES!!! I don't like it, I won't condone it but it's their right to teach their children what they believe and for the child to grow up and make a choice, but since it has been beaten into their heads as kids, which way do you think they will go? I don' want gay this or that taught to MY child. I don't want the Klan taught to MY child. I don't want hatred taught to MY child. It's bad enough that my children have to have class slowed down because of the non English speaking children in their school. California schools are already at the crap end of the spectrum, so lets just throw some more crap that the gays want done to their children. We can rant and rave for years about this but I wont change your mind and you sure as hell wont change mine so go bobo each other.(Yes I said BOBO again west coaster) This is a forum and it's also America and I have said my peace. Don't forget all you great people of California, get on the "Yes on 8" bus that's touring Gayafornia

Ironic, Mark, that you state that you have

"said your peace." You meant piece, illiterate dude. The last thing you want is peace, I'm guessing. Not with the ignorant dust you're kicking up here. The thing you are lacking, sir, and maybe should "want," is logic in your reasoning.

Why on earth did you make the statement about beasts, incest, and then homos as phy ed teachers? What does that have to do with anything? I can't follow the connection with gay marriage, at least. I don't know a single engaged voter who is demanding gay phy ed teachers.

I'm not sure what school your kids go to, but at my kids' school, there is not a "how to be gay" day where some gay person comes in teaches kids how to be gay in a classroom. Nobody teaches kids how to be gay. People either are or they are not. I wish there had been some open discussion in my school as a young adult, and it might have saved me years of living in fear, pain, anguish and shamed at the thought that I was somehow condemned for something I have no control over. As a gay person, I can guarentee I would want nothing to do with you, and have no plan to infringe on your space or beliefs. But I expect that you will also give me space to breath and function as a full-fledged American citizen, with the same rights given to all Americans. Not special ones, but the ones guaranteed under the same rule of law you exist under.

Being straight is encouraged and "taught" in schools, just not in curriculums. THere is prom king and queen, homecoming king and queen, "cutest couples" stereotypes about cheerleaders and athletes, etc. etc. etc. Kids who do not fit those roles can expect to get the sh*t kicked out of them. I know this. I'm a teacher. As a matter of fact, I can tell you there is no "homo agenda" in my school, but there is the expectation that all people are tolerant of others. This is something that obviously you missed out on in your upbringing:
the tolerance part.

As this country becomes more and more diverse (check out the census facts, bud), you will find yourself more and more in the minority, needing to coexist with all sorts of groups. It's kinda hard to coexist when you're so full of "us and them" style hate and isolation.

Interesting point raised. WHat happens if one of your kids turns out to be gay? Would you expect them to shag a sheep? If it's any consolation, I have a LOT of gay friends. Not one of them has ever had the urge let alone been with an animal or a sibling. But I grew up in South Dakota, and there were stories about straight, drunk cowboys doing that all the time. So... who's boboing who?

guess that's all.
thanks for posting. yes, it's your right. intolerance, while unfortunate, is your right. It is also your handicap.
