Kirsters Baish| The Democrats in California love to call themselves the “Party of Choice.” In reality, this couldn’t be further from the truth, and their most recent stunt has proved that. California Democrats have just ruled that parents are no longer allowed to opt their school-aged children out of the mandatory LGBT indoctrination that has been worked into the state-sponsored school system. Yup folks, kids in California are now REQUIRED to learn about LGBT rights in school.
Of course, the furthest left-wing state has become the first of our 50 states to force children to use LGBT inclusive textbooks. They have left no wiggle room or legal way for parents to opt their own children out of this nonsense.
While the gay propaganda law claims to require a “‘fair, accurate, inclusive, and respectful’ treatment of homosexual, bisexual, transgender, and lesbian Americans despite the historical insignificance,” according to the Truth Revolt, they have left no room for parents to decide for their own children.
Mark Jarrett, a state publisher, has cited multiple historical figures who may have possibly been gay in order to say that his textbooks will, in essence, turn these historical figures into gay icons. Something seems very wrong about this to me. How can we turn someone who might not have been gay into a gay icon?
“We’re not trying to make anybody gay; we’re not saying there’s an agenda; we’re not saying that these people are better than other people; what we’re saying is this is another group of Americans and they face certain prejudices,” said state publisher Mark Jarrett, whose history textbooks include special mention of the sexual preferences of historical figures like Jane Adams, Emily Dickinson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, President James Buchanan, though it’s inconclusive if these prominent Americans were gay or not.
“I think we should say, ‘Buchanan, he never married. He had a very good friend who was living with him. He may have been gay. On the other hand, at that time, being gay was seen as something evil and wrong.”
We must make note that two men living together and paying for things together has been common throughout the history of our country. Are you a male? Have you ever had a male roommate? Living alone can simply be too expensive for many people. That doesn’t make you gay.
Actually, two men living together was extremely common all the way into the 20th century. Only since WWII have Americans began to develop the idea that living together with no co-habitating partners is a oddity.
In regard to President Buchanan, gay activists have been trying to claim that he was one of them for years. There is no proof to back up their claims of the former president being gay.
There have been many gay activists who have also tried to claim that Abraham Lincoln was gay. The man was happily married with children.
California textbooks are being chalked full of bits and pieces of the radical gay agenda. Truth Revolt reported:
California approved the textbooks written by Jarrett, a Ph.D, to be used in the 8th grade. Students will read that legendary stagecoach driver Charlie Parkhurst “was a woman who identified as a man,” according to Fox News. They will read that George Washington’s chief of staff Baron Von Steuben “may have been gay,” and that poet Walt Whitman “was drawn to young men… but denied his same sex preferences in public.”
Critics say much of these accounts are speculation, but California rejected any publisher that didn’t mention the homosexual preferences or claims against historical figures in their textbooks. In one textbook, the state forced the publisher to add “lesbian” to describe NASA astronaut Sally Ride.
The state of California is now doing everything they can in order to appease the gay lobby. They are filling textbooks with pure speculation of the sexualities of historical figures in order to push the gay agenda. These speculations are NOT facts. Textbooks are meant to be filled with facts, not speculation.
Instead of educating children, California has decided that indoctrinating them is a much better idea.
