California Lawmakers Again Try To Force Kids To Learn About Homosexuals

Here we go with California’s SB48 again, which would force public schools to add gays to its textbooks. Democratic lawmakers there, led by gay Sen. Mark Leno and bolstered by a sympathetic Gov. Jerry Brown, are renewing the effort to make it law that schools teach kids about the contributions of LGBTs throughout history. Naturally the bill has drawn the ire of folks like Republican Sen. Bob Huff who doesn’t want to “sexualize the training of our children at an early age.” So far, it looks like the Huffs of the world have been winning: Democrats have been trying this in California for years.
