Milliseconds after Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill to include LGBT people in public school social-studies curricula, the conservative Capitol Resource Institute began the process to get voters to overturn it (think Prop 8, but over queer history). The CRI only needs 433,971 signatures to get it on the ballot so there’s a good chance Cali residents will cast their vote on it next year. We can also expect a bunch of ads claiming that gays hate religious morality and want to indoctrinate kids with anal-sex lessons masquerading as history classes. The LGBT response so far? Crickets.
What should we do to combat the imminent smear campaign? Tell us your suggestions in the comment section.
