Skip to comments.LGBT groups protest potential California textbooks
Posted on 09/27/2017 10:21:59 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Gay rights groups told a California state commission Wednesday that they object to several of the textbooks that could be recommended for use in schools, saying the books dont include enough information about the contributions of LGBT Americans.
The state Department of Education is preparing to update textbook recommendations for the first time since California became the first state to require teaching about the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
A coalition of LGBT rights groups said the books should not merely include a token reference to San Francisco civil rights icon Harvey Milk but integrate the contributions of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people throughout history. They also said the books should point out when historical or cultural figures had same-sex partners, like astronaut Sally Ride, Jane Addams, who is considered the mother of social work, entertainer Ellen DeGeneres or tennis champion Billie Jean King.
Its not something to appease a particular part of the population, but to truly include inclusive history throughout grades K-8, said Renata Moreira, executive director of Our Family Coalition, an LGBT advocacy group in the San Francisco Bay area.

Bradley Manning, for instance.
How crazy is this. You pander to the radical homosexual element, by requiring that schools teach about them.
Then, they are pissed off that the schools aren’t going far enough, not enough detail, not enough allegedly historic figures being taught about ,etc.
They pander to this grievance group, and they are still pissed off anyway.
Why even try to appease them, if they are going to be pissed off no matter what you do?
I’m ashamed that I share an MOS with him.
Their means of control over others is perpetual grievance. There is no accommodation. There is always the next grievance.
How about a protest in favor of including God’s perspective on the subject.
The BLTG crew needs to force everyone to endorse them.
Why stop there?
Cover the role of sex workers in history.
Harvey Milk was a pedophile.
As a very wise FReeper once said here: “There’s only one reason adults want to teach children about homosexuality.”
If they talk about Milk, will they mention that he seduced a minor?
So these freaks think that BEING A FREAK made them achieve???
There is always something more.
How LGBT contributions to the all time high STD rate?
I was thinking the same thing.
A page devoted to their accomplishments would be blank.
