LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Students in the Los Angeles Unified school district may soon be taught “age-appropriate” curriculum promoting positive images of homosexuals and their contributions to society.

KNX 1070’s Claudia Peschiutta reports the district approved an anti-bullying program aimed at reducing harassment at school for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students.

The resolution approved on Tuesday directs officials to come up with an implementation plan within 90 days, the Associated Press reported.

One mom present at the school board meeting recalled the reaction her son Elliot received at school when he openly declared himself to be homosexual at age 13 in front of hundreds of classmates.

“Students called him names, hit him, kicked him, and one student threatened to kill him,” she said.

The resolution comes on the heels of the California Legislature approving a law requiring school districts to include the contributions of LGBT Americans in their social studies curriculum.

In addition to curriculum changes, the plan also calls for LGBT sensitivity in education and training for students, parents and staff members.

District officials said the program would teach middle school students studying history about San Francisco gay rights leader Harvey Milk, while elementary school students with same-sex parents could be allowed to make two Mother’s or Father’s Day cards.

Despite the bullying, Elliot, who is now 16, said he feels relieved that he no longer has to hide being a homosexual.

“Remember, you are who you are,” he said. “No one can take that away from you.”

    this is crazy kids get teased or messed with for all sorts of reasons. maybe because they are fat or thin tall or short for their age. maybe because they are of a faith that requires them to dress or behave in a manner diffrent then their peers case in point i grew up with a kid that was from egypt well his parents were anyhow and his religion required him to kneel on this lil rug at various times of the day and pray that was very odd to the rest of us and some kids messed with him they would take his lil rug and play keep away with it im sure there were other kids of his faith or simular faiths in our school but did the school have to add a new course to address his diffrence NO THEY DID NOT. then there is this idea WHY IS SEXUALITY OF A CHILD IN SCHOOL EVEN AN ISSUE i mean is it not against the rules in every school to engage in any sexual activitys? i know when i was in school if you hit on the girls in class you could get in trouble so why cant gays as well as straights just keep the sexual matters out of school and concentrate on what they are there for, that being getting an education. kids when i was in school never announced to the other kids what that were gay or straight so i see no reason for kids today to do it. and besides that sexual matters comes up under MORAL ISSUES and those issues should be taught at home by the parents not at school by the history or social studies teacher. why cant the schools teach what they need to like READING WRITING AND MATH and leave the moral issues to the parents

      Kids have a natural AVERSION toward PERVERSION…

    3. Peace says:

      Thank you, Anthony! Dominic, kids do not have a natural aversion to LGBT people. That needs to be taught or learned through observation. If a child is adopted by a gay couple at a young age, there will almost certainly be no aversion. If the only reactions a kid sees to LGBT people are ones of aversion, that is how their reactions will develop. I can assure you that kids in Berkeley, Provicetown, and Amherst have a far lower aversion to what you call perversion than kids in a small rural Bible-belt town who never get a chance to observe LGBT people being treated normally. Think about how the way you were raised made you think like you do. You don’t need to stay that way, though!

    4. Matt says:

      I don’t know the though of gay sex is pretty frightening to me, on so many different levels. I don’t want my child exposed to it in school. It is morally wrong after all.

    5. J says:

      Gays are less than 3% of the population they are within the statistical margin of error by most surveys, etc. They are therefore statistically insignificant, so why is so much of our time and money dedicated to cramming their agenda down the rest of our throats?

    8. Geosophus says:

      That is called parenting. Not a school issue. Schools are not churches or moral instructors. Children go to school for their basic education, not for prayer or moralizing.

      1. verheek says:

        Sorry but it’s impossible to teach and raise kids without teaching morals. I think the issue here is more specifically teaching sexual morals to kids.

    9. usefulidiots says:

      Spoken like a true believer in the “Gay Mafia” a disciple of the metro sexualization of our youth giving them complete confusion as to roles even stable gay couples find in a monogamous relationship. Boys are born bullies to some degree testosterone makes a small boy or bull calf want to but you when they are only years old and effeminate boys are strange to them so blame Darwin and quit trying to socialize our population that gay genes are better social markers than straight ones. This is a political move to further a gay agenda by very sad people who have duped us into thinking they are “special” and deserve special treatment and language used when speaking to them. I say we all claim “Gay” and then there is no issue as to which gay’s are sissy and which are Macho’s thus it makes no difference. I am made of rubber and you are glue what you say….

    10. Nelson Franks says:

      The nation’s status as leader in quality education began declining when different social agendas were pushed by the governing agencies. Integration through busing is a prime example. The goal may have been noble, but its implementation caused stress and anger from all sides. Parents of all races complained about the long rides, hardships with transportation for extracurricular activities, and the separation of siblings. A consequence of busing was an increase in so-called “White Flight,” and to this day there is a gaping disparity in racial and economic makeup between urban and suburban communities. In short, the government’s efforts to address a social issue caused as many, if not more, problems than it sought to solve.
      Certainly, I think teachers and schools should do whatever they can to control bullying and curb harassment, but experience has shown that the state’s arm twisting on an issue doesn’t always produce the desired result.
      Public education in this country has become a laughing stock. Emphasis and enhance the fundamentals and leave social issues out.

    11. Kathy F says:

      AGREE I am so over the issue of sexual orientation being the first on the list to be taught in schools these days that I just want to VOMIT. I am soooo glad our son is out of the school age that I have to deal with such stupidity coming from those we think are supposed to be teaching the READING,WRITING,MATH,AND SCIENCE. One thing to add, writing is really not taught anymore, have you seen these kids’ writing? They don’t even learn how to sign their name legibly. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

    12. Guess Who says:

    14. rufus levin says:

      perverts exist, preditors exisst, wife beaters exist, cannibals exist, starving children exist, murderers exist, dictators exist, terrorists exist…..so why not have ALL of these demonstrated and taught to the little kids in the light of making them AWARE…why should a terrorist get bullied, or a cannibal…they EXIST don’t they?

    15. Pensieve says:

      Oh, I’m all for talking about gays and historical reality. So, in the interests of full disclosure, are they going to talk about how gays brought us AIDS and irresponsible gays kept it going? In particular, will the texts mentione the current devestation to Africa by this plague, spread primarily by gays who don’t use safe sex? Will it tell them how this gay-driven plague has killed thousands of women married to men having gay relationships, has killed so many little African children, and has left so many African children orphan? Just asking.

    16. Gregg says:

      The reason that it is something brought to light is not to teach kids about the sexual nature of the issue. But keep in mind that children in these age groups are learning about their own sexuality and to have a curriculum that says, “its ok to be gay” is needed. Keep in mind that many of these kids don’t have a support system at home like those of a religious group or other groups that may be singled out by kids. There aren’t kids killing themselves because someone made fun of their religion at the same rate as kids killing themselves because they are learning about their own sexual identity and being shunned and bullied for it. Tolerance is needed all around and that is a HUGE part of any child (or adult’s) education and has its place in schools just the same as reading writing and arithmetic.

    17. douglas says:

      so u r saying it okay to be bullied to the point of a physical attack on someone
      like the teenage up north who got shot and killed bcuz he was out and gay
      words hurt peoplke too some kids have commited suicide for being verbally
      bullied whos real fault is the bullying parents and then the parents will say oh my kids a good kid just like when parents say my kids not in a gand when they really in my day parents were involved with sitting in class and observing everything everyone does and then report to the principal

    18. sachi says:

      Absolutely right! I don’t want schhols teaching my children about moral issues. ZOur kids can’t read or do math .

  2. Amere Shadow says:

    If you can show us in the bible where it says it is acceptable to sleep man with man or woman with woman. Then judgment is not yours. The laws have been spoken and written. If you choose to have your ears tickled then dont be suprised in the end.
    The word is in black and white. There is no gray.

    1. John Fox says:

      Umm…the laws of this country aren’t based on your personal interpretation of the bible. That is black and white. Move on….

      1. richhenk says:

        Why you gotta bring race into it?

      2. Verheek says:

        No they are based on the majority or the opinions of the strong. What’s here today is gone tomorrow. Look at Rome and how tolerant they were of pederasty? What happened in between that swung the pendulum the other way for some many years?

      3. Jeremy Brown, MA says:

        Interpretation of Scripture must follow principles of hermenuetics. Context, word study, the original languages, background, word comparison throughout the book and Bible, grammar, figurative language and application. If these principles are applied than whether it’s black and white is a moot point.

    2. Alex says:

      Spoken like a true brainwashed blockhead!

      1. Alex says:

        Sorry, my comment was directed at Amere Shadow.

  3. Darrell Karrfalt says:

    There is gray as the Bible is simply an interpretation. If your interpretation is self denial then so be it just please don’t teach hate.

    1. EverydayGuy says:

      Don’t you teach your own narrow minded hate filled agenda by forcing this onto people who do not want it.

      1. ny9solyndra says:

        It’s ironic how those who preach tolerance and respect for diversity of opinion the most (i.e., Liberals), rarely practice the traits themselves.

      2. Marmaduke says:

        They are all about “tolerance” as long as they are the one being “tolerated” put a Bible in front of them and try to share the Good News and you will be attacked most viciously!
        Philippians 2:10-11

      3. hildymac says:

        As a Christian, I find it comical how other Christians are jumping on someone for saying “just please don’t teach hate.” I thought that loving each other and accepting each other as who we are was part of our faith.

        I have a funny feeling that the company Christ kept would probably be mocked by you if they existed today. Oh wait – they do, and they are. Fair enough.

      4. Dominic Carabello says:


        You see Jesus Christ as some sort of gay rights activist, which is just self-serving nonsense. Read Romans 1:24-27 & try to fit that into your RADICAL LGBT agenda,,,

      5. hildymac says:

        So, Jesus didn’t spend his time with people on the fringes of society? The poor? The destitute? The people that no one had a use for? What was Mary Magdalene, a scullery maid? She was a prostitute, but one who Jesus forgave – and the first person to see Jesus after His resurrection.

        I counter your quote from Romans with 1 John 3:23:

        And this is his commandment, That we should believe on the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.

        You can love someone without necessarily agreeing with it. Jesus loved all of us, and He told us to love one another. How is it that the central message of the Bible is completely overlooked? Jesus’ Word supersedes all others. That’s the point.

      6. juanita valdez says:

        when are they going to have tolerance training for those who know that biologically-correct relationships are normal should not be mocked (in other words, when are liberal sexually-deviant perverts going to have training on promoting normal people or religious people or those who have a conservative world view????)

      7. Karen says:

        I am with you Juanita Valdez. They need to tolerate heterosexuals. And while they are teaching “sensitivity,” I hope they also teach them that it takes male sperm and female eggs to make a baby – not two sperms or two eggs. Some people, even grownups, are super confused.

    2. Verheek says:

      Define “teaching hate”. See now you’re back to teaching morality again. Trouble is, people can’t agree to a common standard anymore so we have a relativistic mess. The Bible brought this standard but as the Bible shows, people always think they know better in their little snapshot of time. Forget history repeating itself. We know better and we’ll do it our way thank-you. We don’t need you God because you are a fairy-tale and we know better anyway. I don’t promote bullying anyone but the gay lifestyle is not and will never be normal. The idea that a 13 year old can know he’s gay is right out of fiction. Sorry but if he has GID than he needs counselling and good male role models not the brainwashing of just go with it and don’t fight it.

      1. greg says:

        hildymac we christians do not want this taught to our kids. the sexual choices of any notable person is not important. we do not say to abuse the gays but we also do not want our kids taught in school that its acceptable when we teach them at home that it is not acceptable. moral issues belong at home not in the class. let the teacher teach math and let me teach my kids the morals i belive in. yes Jesus delt with the FRINGE in socity but he NEVER condoned their sins. you make mention of mary and how he forgave her, and that he surely did he told the people that wanted to stone her that it was not for them to judge and i agree with that i do not care what life style a gay person lives IN HIS/HER HOME but when what they do is taught to my child then their life style is not comming to my home and thats unacceptable. i can not judge them but i also do not have to condone their ways JESUS LOVES THE SINNER BUT HATES THE SIN

      2. cgs says:

        Hildymac, I get what you are saying, but please have the facts. No where in the Bible does it say Mary Magdelene was a prostitute, ever. The other thing about invoking Jesus is that though He did hang out with sinners, He told them to STOP sinning over and over. 1 Corinthians 15:34 flat out tells us to STOP SINNING. That said I don’t believe in bullying for any reason. But I also believe this is a Parental issue because as someone adeptly pointed out kids are bullied for so many reasons, but we don’t form a cirriculum for each of those things. How about we just treat each other nicely without singling out a particular group for a special cirriculum.

    3. irishsmile says:

      Why teach anything on this in tax payer funded schools. Let the parents handel the moral code and let public schools try and actually teach these kids to read and write. Record low SAT English scores this year!!!

    4. Believer in Christ says:

      @hildymac, We as Christians do follow the commandment of “Love one another” We as Christians hate sin, not the sinners

      1. Then why the hate directed at people, and not the sin? I never said that I agreed with this being taught in schools – I don’t. I think that honestly all that needs to be taught is tolerance (and to quote Mr. Garrison from South Park of all things, tolerating someone doesn’t mean that you agree with it) and how the ability to get along with people eliminates problems that don’t need to exist.

        Jesus told people to stop sinning and to repent, but He still loved everyone regardless. He also knew that God gave us all free will, and that people make mistakes, hense His amazing ability to forgive. All I ever see thrown out by people on message boards is hate directed at the individual, not the behavior. Oh well, squeaky wheel needs the grease, I guess.

  4. Miss Rita says:

    I don’t want to know what anyone else does in bed with anyone else. This is sick.

    1. Infowarrior says:

      Thank You, It’s crazy we need to know the sexual oreintation of historical figures, why, for what? Next there going to force feed us all the wonderful contributions drug addicts gave us in history.

    2. Discusted says:

      That’s what I thought… So, for every reference to a glbt person will there be equal time given to a heterosexual !!!???

    3. Peace says:

      Then why are you so interested in this article? The issue is not at all about what anybody does in bed; it’s about teaching people not to view anyone as wierd enough to justify harmful speech and actions. The beatings and suicides of the last few years are a testament to the need for teaching people to speak and act with skill, not ignorance. Name calling, tormenting and assault should of course be condemned. If you don’t prefer the way certain people live, then don’t live that way! Just don’t turn a blind eye to the harassment and violence going on around you.

      1. MARK says:

        peace HURTFUL WORDS have been said to just about everyone for any number of reasons maybe your fat or thin tall or short and someone made fun of you. maybe you have an odd name and they made fun of that. maybe you were less then well off and your parents could not buy you the IN STYLE cloths and they made fun of that. point is people can be hurtful to you on any given front so is it best to create a course load to cover each possible variable? or is it best to create a course load that simply teaches that it is UNKIND AND WRONG AND UNACCEPTABLE TO MAKE FUN OF OR HARM ANOTHER PERSON BASED OF ANY THING YOU FIND ODD OR DIFFRENT?

      2. Karen says:

        Right on Mark. You said it best. In fact, I think this class will backfire and there will be more intolerance.

  5. EverydayGuy says:

    Chinese Student: “I know Calculus, Physics, and astronomy.”
    Los Angeles Student: “I know about LGBT and Harvey Milk.”
    Chinese Student: That’s nice, could you ad fries to my order?”

    1. Hugo Avila says:

      That’s exactly what I said. This is a waste in a time when money is tight in schools. I’m not conservative by any measure, but even I can see how stupid this is

      1. EverydayGuy says:

        Hugo, thanks for the support. Maybe you should be conservative as the other side is all feeling based and devoid of intellect. Has anyone for this program considered any consequences? No. They want what they want and that’s all they see.

    2. ny9solyndra says:

      Actually, the Chinese student will say:


      …because if the way Democrats are taking the economy, we’ll all be needing to learn Chinese before too long.

      1. Alpha Kenny Juan says:

        Come on, ny9solyndra, how are you going to blame Democrats when Bush was the president who borrowed so much money from China to fight two unfunded wars? How are you going to blame Democrats for the fact that businesses (whose owners and corporate boards are more often Republican) have outsourced their manufacturing operations to China? Speaking of which, didn’t Solyndra get implicated in some sort of scandal recently?

      2. James Payne says:

        Come on yourself, Alpha Kenny Juan,

        YOU know as well as everyone ELSE that while Bush gave Obama a bad economy, Obama made it into a catastrophic economy.

        One simple question for you…are you better off NOW than you were 2 1/2 years ago?

      3. bubbles says:

        Everyone’s missing the point. It’s long past time to do away with public schools and the DOE.
        And actually, the Chinese student wouldn’t say that. google translate gave you darn near nonsense. I guess your point is noted either way.

      4. In over his head says:

        Isn’t the fact that GE’s Jeffrey Immelt and our jobs czar, whose had special seating at Obama’s jobs, has recently sent high wage x-ray machine manufacturing to China. This act is indefensible by Immelt and the administration.

      5. Karen says:

        Good job. Which translation program did you use?

  6. EverydayGuy says:

    Darrell, if you are truly open minded and believe in diversity as in diverse points of view then you will be in favor of an opt out for those who don’t bully. I wish the LGBT community did not bully parents into subjecting their kids to this.

    1. ny9solyndra says:

      Resistance is futile, per the libunatics.

    2. Alex says:

      As a woman born intersex, I agree with you! Parents should not allow children to be exposed to this topic until they are mature enough to understand it. Schools should teach subjects that will improve the life of children as they mature into young adults, not subject them to often complex issues they need not understand at an early age. It is not necessary.

      1. Guess Who says:

        Intersex??!! Does that mean you can do yourself? I bet you never leave the house.

  7. Hugo Avila says:

    They’re wasting money on this when CA schools are behind in Science, Math, and Reading?

    By the way, the bible is NOT the word of God. It is the word of man’s interpretation of God. I don’t care for the LGBT cause, but the bible people are pretty stupid to cite it in their vindications against it

    1. Big Jim says:

      2 Timothy 3:16
      All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

      1. JustAGuy says:


      2. richhenk says:

        well yeah, but again, that scripture is man’s interpretation. you can’t just put a line in the book that says ‘this is the true word of God’ and suddenly it becomes the true word of God. Until this God comes down and writes it him(her)self it is mans interpretation.

      3. Verheek says:

        The Bible is *not* man’s interpretation. The point is that God used people to write stuff. Just like he inspires people to do all kinds of things. If you practice the Bible you’ll see what I mean. It would never be sought after by so many people at pain of death in closed countries if it was just “some book”.

      4. Peace says:

        Including Leviticus and Deuteronomy? Or the scriptures in which God is said to be perfect, while in the Old Testament he describes himself as jealous and is prone to support violence of any kind to meet his ends, including killing nearly every person and land animal on earth? Then, a pause, as God changes into a better “perfect” in the New Testament, one who required a blood ransom of his own son in order to forgive humans their sins? Why couldn’t he just forgive them? Why, if he’s all powerful, could he not simply teach and forgive? Why, if he intervenes for every common person’s prayers, did he allow his son to have a ministry for only THREE YEARS? And why, after the disciples died, have we been left hanging, waiting, generation after suffering generation, for his son to return? That scripture is full of gaping holes.

    2. David Griffin says:

      Your opinion is that the bible is not the word of God, but quite plainly, if you believe what the bible says, then you believe it when the bible says it is the Word of God. You are pretty much saying that if you don;t believe the bible then you shouldn’t believe the bible, which is nonsense…

  8. ceevee says:


    1. Jeff P. says:

      I would agree with you teaching children about alternative lifestyles is not really needed. Teaching acceptance of other people should be encouraged but the specifics of that difference has nothing to do with tolerance.

      It should be “respect everyone” not “respect everyone who is gay”

      What is needed is teaching children how to balance a check book and how to use credit responsibly.

      The Bible should be left out of schools; the Bible shows little or no tolerance of an individual who does not live up to “the code”.

      “With love for mankind and hatred of sins.” ~ St. Augustine.

      1. Verheek says:

        The Bible shows the law before Jesus came and the new law after he came. Before the Jewish people were under law and had to perform all the rituals. After Jesus came and died for our sins, we were freed from the law and entered the era of grace.
        “the Bible shows little or no tolerance of an individual who does not live up to “the code”.” Exactly. That’s who God is. The Bible is His standard by which we don’t measure up. That’s why Jesus came to earth to live and die and remove our sins which we all had after Adam and Eve ate the Apple in the Garden of Eden.
        However, the New Testament half of the Bible brings new teachings are reaffirms old ones but we no longer half to sacrifice and perform all these rituals through a priest to pay for our sins. We can ask Jesus to do that for us and take charge of our lives. That doesn’t mean all our problems vanish but it does give us a relationship with him and Guide through life. It does give us grace when we fall short of the law. The Bible teaches love and acceptance but Jesus doesn’t just want to leave us there. This is where people are often twisting the Bible saying just love and accept and that’s all there is. But it isn’t. We need to move forward and deal with things in our lives through counselling, prayer, relationships, education and so on but based on the Biblical standard.

  9. Silly Me says:

    Hugo Avila- The bible is the WORD OF GOD, I also don’t care for the LGBT. However, I have to need to offend anyone the way you do. Oh, and the “Bible People” are believers….just to clarify your ignorance.

    1. richhenk says:

      um, ‘i have no need to offend anyone…’…’…just to clarify your ignorance’ – Seems kind of hypocritical. How does that saying go? let he who is without sin cast the first stone.

      1. James Payne says:

        Indeed richhenk,

        HOWEVER the Bible also says we are not to tolerate sin. For example in John 8:7 verse 7 when Jesus saved Mary from stoning he told her to “go and sin no more”.

        Therefore while we are to give forgiveness we are still not to tolerate sin.

      2. David Griffin says:

        Ignorance simply means being unaware or uneducated in a certain area. If you demonstrate e lack of knowledge or understanding of a subject then you are, by definition, ignorant.
        Not like he was calling you stupid.
        But I am considering it…

  10. John Smith says:

    Are the school administrators going to be impartial and include John wayne Gacy’s gay history, Jeffrey Dahmer? J. Edgar Hoover and his non-policy of going after organized crime, and his association to the Kennedy’s assasination? or try to say you have to be gay to be a true and balanced American?

  11. SW Wu says:

    Gotta love opinions from people who purposely and conveniently leave out other parts of the same Bible that finds slavery acceptable, etc. Not that I would ever encourage that type of thinking.

    If you want to follow the Bible, fine. Just don’t be a hypocrite and follow only bits and pieces as you choose fit. That was how the South justified slavery.

    1. Peter Lim says:

      Gotta love opinions from people that read the Bible but don’t understand it.

    2. JD says:

      You should probably read the Bible first before making such statements. Nowhere in the Bible does it advocate slavery; quite the contrary, as evidenced in Exodus and Philemon. Read first, then respond.

      1. Y-not says:

        Actually, Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine
        claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can’t I own Canadians?

      2. Steve Golac says:

        actually, if you had any contextual knowledge whatsoever, and didn’t get your opinion from Bill Maher, you’d understand that firstly, the master & slave relationship in the ancient world is not different from an employer/employee relationship.There are specific guidelines for how to treat slaves. Also, levitical laws are directed solely to one specific nation. That of Israel. At one specific time in history. It also talks of how a king is to be appointed. Do you think anyone argues that the Bible specifically endorses monarchism for all time in all cultures? So weak. If you read Exodus and stop watching Bill Maher, you’d know that the entire book is about freedom from Egyptian slavery. The Bible clearly obviates class distinctions. (Galatians 3:28)
        You are attempting to use a modern understanding of slavery and transfer it to 3000 years ago. Freedom in the ancient Near East was a relative, not an absolute state, as the ambiguity of the term for “slave” in all the region’s languages illustrates. “Slave” could be used to refer to a subordinate in the social ladder. Thus the subjects of a king were called his “slaves,” even though they were free citizens.And in most cases, the transaction of slavery was voluntary, much like maid or butler. And you negate to mention that the party that abolished American slavery (the GOP), which was far different than ancient slavery, did so on a biblical basis of equality as being created in the image of God. The fact that there are passages in the OT describing how to treat the poor is not an approval of poverty. It is a reality. The fact is, you who are condemning slavery probably wear clothing made by slaves in third-world countries, living in conditions far worse than those of Israel’s slaves. And again, where did you get the moral high ground?

    3. DD says:

      From a Catholic point of view being a Slave Owner is a lessor offense than teaching children that what is actually an evil should be embraced as good and acceptable. We Catholics love codifying everything after all.

  12. Find Virtue says:

    They are given to selfish lusts and desires which are against nature and procreation.

    1. SW Wu says:

      Selfish lusts and desires are responsible for you being on this earth too. One has to sin to procreate.

      1. rich says:

        there is no SIN involved in procreation if it is a married couple sex is intended for married people not for man on man or woman on woman plain and sinple fact the parts fit perfectly for the act man on woman. they do not fit in either of the other options this is not a religious argument just a pure biolgy one

      2. Peace says:

        Rich, procreation existed long before Christianity and Judaism and marriage. Tell me I’m wrong! All life forms engage in procreation. Ours is the only one with members arguing with each other that their various books of rules about it are absolute. And harming each other. And allowing others to be harmed.

  13. nat57 says:

    California sucks! Damn you people are so flippin lame!

    1. Jeff says:

      I had lived in Ca. my whole and have witnessed it’s demise. You are spot on.

      1. James Payne says:

        Frankly I find it AMAZING that ANYONE who is SANE would still choose to live there!

      2. mark says:

        PEACE marriage has ALWAYS existed God joined adam and eve it may not have always required the ceramony and papers we put on it now but the act of marriage or JOINING OF ONE MAN TO ONE WOMAN has always existed and i know someone will bring up the fact that people in the bible had COCUBINES and ill admit that but they still called only one woman the WIFE and the others were called CONCUBINE. as for the rest of creation yes they all PROCREATE at will but show me one other life form that engages in a sexual act that engages in it with a member of its own gender? you do not see a male dog, cat, horse, cow or any other male animal trying to put it to another male and if some odd one did im fairly sure the animal on the reciving end would protest greatly lol. so this whole course plan is about teaching about a life style that no other species on this earth engages in except man kind so that should be a clue that it is not as it was intended to be

  14. magnus says:

    How about you let the school districts decide what should be taught to the kids. Legislators know siht about an effective curriculum. How much are we going to keep allowing these garbage politicians to dictate our lives for us?

    1. Verheek says:

      Why keep waiting for the politicians to do something. Why don’t people join the PTA and other parts of the school system and speak out against this stuff. That’s why it continues because seemingly people aren’t opposing it.

  15. Hank Warren says:

    This is all about limiting Free Speech. After all, censorship is everywhere. The gov’t (and their big business cronies) censor free speech, shut down dissent and ban the book “America Deceived II”. Free speech for all.

    1. NotCrazed says:

      You must be a marketer?

      The US does not ban books. Ever. You are allowed to write just about anything and most vendors will sell it. (Note they did not ban the book the pedophile wrote on amazon either.)

      Amazon sells this book and the first one. They also sell the second one on kindle, so I can get it within 60 seconds. So do MANY other book sellers.

      Sorry to disappoint you.

  16. Get a life says:

    If you want to institute a bullying policy, then do so unilaterally. Why does everything in the mind of liberal politicians have to have a demographic attached to it (other than the obvious pandering to fundraisers)? Honestly, this is why liberal districts suffer so much hate and ignorance. You are teaching kids to see the world through demographic optics rather than through the words of MLK.

  17. terranovas says:

    The anti-bullying program doesn’t have to be sexual in nature. The curriculum doesn’t have to be base from the bible. It should just teach children to accept diversity and that every individual has a choice and that we have to answer to the consequences it would bring. http://www.Survive-Pack.com

    1. Karen says:

      That is too logical for Californians to understand terranovas. Unless we are kow-towing and bowing to the GLBT community, we are not tolerant. I am glad I do not have kids in school because I would be forced to home-school them. Kids need to learn how to read and write, and I also suggest math and science, so they can get a damn job. Further, it is ludicrous to believe that anyone contributed anything to society because they were gay. Their sexual orientation had nothing to do with any contributions. This whole idea makes me want to vomit like Kathy.

  18. JD says:

    How do you expect our failing teachers to teach our children about these sensitive issues? They can’t teach them math or english now want them to learn how to be respectful and mature.

    This really should start at home or at the very least qualified individuals.

  19. Dion says:

    Soooo very sick of Gays trying to ram their agenda in my ass.

    1. Alex says:

      I certainly hope not!

    2. gphx says:

      Allowing gay historical figures to simply be mentioned is hardly ramming an agenda. This whole thing reminds me of the 1960s Civil Rights thing all over again. Some of the people here sound like our grandfathers did talking about black people. No one requires your permission to have dignity and respect. Get over yourself.

  20. Nehamiah Flubber says:

    Ho ho ho….gees….look at the movie IDiOCRACY and tell me these people shouldn’t be starring in it. Rather than solve bullying….rather than bring parent(s) in to work on the problem, let’s talk about private parts being in strange places and now we all understand each other better. Folks…..it’s not going to work that way. This is a program that will require another program to undo the damage that his one does. You better agree with me or I just might beat you up and take your lunch money….wait….there is no lunch money…lunch is free and on me…because I work……darn.

  21. Nehamiah Flubber says:

    This is just sick stuff…..”Hey, Dad, how come I’m making two mother’s day cards when I don’t have a mom in the first place? Where’s Harry? He said he was going to show me his muscles today.”

    I’m beginning to think this country is doomed

    1. nobody says:

      It has been doomed since Fed gained control of our fake dollar and somewhere along the way a commitment to globalization was mandated. All that’s left is wars, famine, disease and a boot stomping on your face forever, as Orwell put it.

      1. Verheek says:

        No it’s been doomed since a majority of people turned from God’s ways and started worshipping material things and the god of tolerance. Tolerance and sensitivity are needed but as with many of these terms they are on one end of a scale which measures a person’s behaviour. One end is Tolerance and the intolerance. Now, where *do* you place any specific behaviour and where *should* you place any specific behaviour? If I compare my scale to yours and they don’t line up, I can call you intolerant. So who is right and who is wrong?

  24. Scott says:

    Liberal politicians do this so they can build a power base that depends on their liargesse and world view to remain viable.

    The insanity continues–completely bankrupt and ineffectual schools are worried about LBTG rights? Incredible.

  25. jaline says:

    ‘ve always lamented that I have no grandchildren, as my children have chosen not to have any kids. Now I am thankful that I don’t have to worry about what they would have been taught in today’s school system. I say this after having worked 26 years at schools.

  26. LTG says:

    Absolutely Ridiculous! What about the bullying of parents and children who are forced to be subjected to this?!! Education? And you wonder why test scores are at an all time low?

      Thanks, and please keep to your word, we don’t need you here.

      1. richhenk says:

        Yeah! how dare Bob be a free independent thinker allowed to make his own decisions on what to purchase. We’re a state of sheep and proud of it! I know it must be the case cause I heard Mel Gibson and Samuel L Jackson say it. I also fear that Bob may have a job and we don’t like people who work and pay taxes in this state, we only mooch off of others and take everything we can. So please Bob, for your own sanity, don’t come here.

      2. Ian McDonald says:

        Bob is a damn sight smarter than most idiots in California. Sadly I live in this pathetic excuse of a state and am locked in so I can’t easily LEAVE to a free state. You liberals and your moronic forcing of agendas on everyone are killing a once great state.

  29. DM says:

    I would say this would put us in last place in the nation for test scores, but we’re already there.

  30. Daytonian says:

    We should also teach how this is simply the result of a genetic mutation and the poor individuals so inflicted have no choice in the matter. No one in their right mind would choose this lifestyle and all of the negative ramifications. In a Darwinian sense it has only negative benefits to the propagation of the species. Natural resources are consumed without the benefits of healthy reproductive abilities.

    We should not hate. Love and sympathy (when appropriate) is what we should teach.

    1. Verheek says:

      Sorry but the research doesn’t hold up to that. Even the Gay gene study guy and other researchers said there isn’t a gay gene. There may be a predisposition like there is to other stuff but environment is chiefly the reason for gender confusion. i.e. rejection of male role models and then becoming attracted sexual to them in teen years. Single parent mother families can be in real trouble because of this. People with GID need counselling and good male role models to help them readjust. The family has been one father and one mother in a committed sexual relationship where they have their kids who grow up and copy them when they move out and start their own lives. Why are we not teaching this? It’s been around and working for 1000s of years. yes there are dysfunctional ones but I daresay that’s not the fault of the marriage and family model but the broken up bringing of those trying to practice it.

      1. Alex says:

        The scientific evidence seems to indicate that there is a prenatal hormonal imbalance is responsible for most gender variant people. Genes may have something to do with it as well. GID persons do not choose who or what they are. It is fully related to human biology in utero. I am one myself.

    2. Alex says:

      Wiser words have rarely been spoken!

  31. cestes says:

    Bullying is not the issue. If that were so then conservatives like Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann would be poster children for bullying at the hands of the MSM. This is selective outrage syndrome. Only Libs get to identify “victims”. There are those of us who resent man’s arrogance to force us to celebrate a chose carnal practice that nature rejects. IIt’s never going to happen. I’m not for bashing others, but certainly not going to embrace their practices.

  36. BK says:

    HOw in the world does a 13 year old boy think he is gay? Most kids don’t know who they are and may be confused – your right about the asians knowing math, science, etc and our schools are taught diversity, environment and other unintended issues.

    Pull all the children out of public schools. simple. solved.B

    1. Gregg says:

      I knew clearly by age 13 that I was gay. I was not confused. I hid my sexuality for years for fear of repercussions living in a smaller town in the Midwest. At that time I did not have anyone to turn to or anyone to tell me that what I was feeling was natural and not a choice. I think someone telling me back then that it was alright and that I could be open to myself and to others about myself I would have had a better middle and high school experience.

  37. Will Yablome says:

    The gay must pay…

  38. John Fox says:

    I just hope that they teach the same type of respect for band kids, geeks, nerds, and dorks. They don’t get any protection!!! (We just get even 20 years later when we are more successful than the jocks and cheerleaders, and nobody cares that we gained 20 pounds!)

  46. OverTheCoastline says:

    “The resolution comes on the heels of the California Legislature approving a law requiring school districts to include the contributions of LGBT Americans in their social studies curriculum”

    Um….outside of designing clothing that no average person would wear in their day-to-day life and being really, really good with color…. .I can’t thnk of a single contribution the “LGBT community” has made.

    1. Alex says:

      I agree with you! There are individuals who are gender variant like myself, who have contributed immensely to better the world such as physicians, firefighters, professors, airline pilots, entrepreneurs and even former ranking military officers. Individuals make contributions to society, not communities. I don’t believe this topic should be taught in school. To do so with children may create unnecessary anxiety and confusion. They need to be instructed in the basic subjects. Otherwise, why have a school in the first place?

  47. Gov. Moonbeam says:

    Lets keep dumbing down our kids with useless LGBT trivia so when they grow up they will vote Democrat. While we are at it, lets give illegal aliens in-state tuition and college grant money. That will build up our base.

    Hear and heed the word of the LORD:
    Isaiah 5

    24—Therefore, as the tongue of fire devours the stubble, and as dry grass sinks down in the flame, so their root will be as rottenness, and their blossom go up like dust; for they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts, and have despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
    Mark 9
    42—“Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.”

  51. Why do I sense this will only teach children newer and more inventive ways to make fun?


  52. Nancy Porklosi says:

    All these hate laws and special considerations protecting this species of LGBT is starting to make me want to hate them…because clearly they don’t care what their special rights are doing to children.

  53. Steve Golac says:

    Not the place of teachers to say certain sexual acts are okay. This is what they do in theocracies. Who do they think they are asserting, “no, these sexual behaviors are okay. It’s not a sin, despite your religion.” How is that not a separation of church/state issue, where they are trying to force upon you a belief & prevent you from believing what your religion teaches? No one is for the bullying of any children for any reason.

  54. kim says:

    I think this is great news 🙂

  55. Dani B says:

    Bullying does happen for lots of reasons, and it doesn’t stop when you get older. If you have a bullying story you should share it! This is a new place to blog about this kind of stuff – http://www.bulliedvictim.com/

  56. PrivateSchool OnlyOption says:

    Go ahead and teach the kids being gay is natural. Also teach them about Darwinism (since creation will never be taught). Teach them Darwins meaning of life is to procreate and multiply. Then when little Juan says, “but gay people can’t make babies”, explain to them that science and Darwin is hate just like religion.

  57. kim says:

    Could the haters on this forum please tattoo a big L on their foreheads? I really would like to know who to stay way clear of when I’m out in public 🙂 Plus, I think the L would be so fitting and look great on you all anyway……..

  60. Free and Green says:

    I know a guy who, at 44 years old and in a marriage, decides he’s now gay. So he moves in with his male lover and then they adopt 2 twin baby girls. They’re now 7 years old and having breakdowns at school and in psychological counseling as they don’t understand their family structure. The guy and his partner, “Mom,” have broken up but still live in the same house they now share with the partners new boyfriend. It’s really effed up and sickens me to the core. All part of an agenda to destroy the traditional family. Our time will come.

    Anthony Potter

    “This isn’t about sex or morality. This is simply introducing gays into reality|

    This is about assuming that one’s sexual behavior should be understood as an identity. And that they, collectively as a group, should be understood. Yes, that is a moral position.

  62. Ed Simple says:

    Well, as long as they’re not teaching math, science or proper English…

    Seriously, how about an INTEGRATED curriculum, teach English, but include LBGT friendly literature or something like that.

  63. Bryan Abbott says:

    Teach your children what is right. When they’re singled out or ostracized for their personal beliefs, go to bat for them and make a stand with the school teachers, school board and superintendent.

    This cuts both ways….. but don’t allow the public school system to warp your family’s value system. Take a stand.

  64. JohnB says:

    From the CDC: “Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM)1 represent approximately 2% of the US population, yet are the population most severely affected by HIV and are the only risk group in which new HIV infections have been increasing steadily since the early 1990s. In 2006, MSM accounted for more than half (53%) of all new HIV infections in the United States”
    Are they going to explain this to the students too?

    1. John Ross says:

      And who do you think pays for the treatment for HIV? State ADAP Programs. Covers 1/3 of the total costs now. Paid out of taxes federal and state.

    2. kim says:

      I support 100% the LGBT community and I think they should teach the problems of HIV in the gay community. We should all also accept our fellow citizens for who they are, I hope the kids of many on this forum are more accepting than their parents. Note that I say ‘acceptance’ and not ‘tolerance’. Tolerance in my opinion is a bit condescending, I much prefer accepting others who aren’t hurting others as my equal. If some of you actually got to know some folks in the LGBT community, you might actually make some very good friends.

  65. Charles says:

    In case Californians didn’t know, your legislators WANT you to be stupid. So you can learn this garbage instead of anything remotely useful or critical. And then you can be good sheep.

  66. John Ross says:

    This is just great – more time out of the school day for idiotic waste of time on feel good garbage. It is NOT the schools job to make breakfast, lunch, snacks, low fat choices, or to propagandize them on global warming theories, gay people, Hispanic, black or other SPECIAL people. How about we teach the kids math, sciences, language, literature, etc?? You dopes in CA deserve your fate. You assume everything you have is going to last forever and you don’t need to fight to keep it. FYI – national SAT scores came out today. They hit another LOW. But it’s OK – even though they will be pulling weeds for a living, they can be comfortable knowing the Polar bears and butterflies are being cared for and their Gay Co-worker is properly satisfied with the mood around the weed pulling office….idiot feel gooders.

    1. Alex says:

      Dear Mr. Ross…
      My sentements exactly. Bravo!

  67. Mike says:

    This is why I’m blessed to be able to afford private Christian Schools for my kids. they’ve never set foot in public schools and Lord willing, never will.

    To compromise the morals that America has held fur hundreds of years for 3% of the population is a sad and destructive policy.

    1. Alex says:

      Sorry, being LGBT or intersex is not an issue of morality. It is an issue of human biology. I don’t want this issue taught in schools, but I want parents to bring the topic up if and when they think is appropriate, not some dunce that claims to be a teacher.

      1. DanaDee says:

        Sorry, Alex,, but we are ALL born with a propensity for something, but that doesn’t make it right if we act on it.

    2. DanaDee says:

      Except to say, be on top of it and be sure your “Christian” private school isn’t marginalizing Christianity. Don’t assume anything. I sent my child to a “Christian” public school and last year pulled her out mid-year (to the loss of thousands of dollars) because the school merely gave lip service to that word. I put her into a smaller school teaching “classical” education with a passion for Jesus Christ, and it has made a world of difference to her and to our family.

  68. John says:

    I hope they all turn out to be gay. There parents in California will be so proud of there gay son or daughters. Please stay in California after graduation so you won’t spread your deceases all over the country. Thank you!!.

  69. littleleers says:

    Bullying is an unfortunate fact of life for school kids. It has gotten worse over the past decade or two as the golden rule doesn’t seem to be taught in enough homes. That being said, the schools need to teach children respect for even those different than us. That means…it isn’t kind to tease fat kids, skinny kids, pimply kids,freckled kids, gay kids, Latino kids, white kids, black kids, etc.

    This special “sensitivity” LGBT teaching focuses on one favored, but bullied group, to address what is actually general bullying and the lack of overall kindness, gentleness, good manners, and learning how to be a decent human being, and leaves the above high and dry.

    1. Alex says:

      Just teach kids to defend themselves like we did in the old days. If someone attacks you, beat the hell out of them, and call it a day. Children are much too coddled by not exposing them to the rigors of life. Life’s tough. Learn how to deal with adversity early and deal with it appropriately. I don’t think this LGBT matter should be forced fed to children. Let them be children. Let them grow up learning things that will make them wise, productive people, like traditional school subjects. We have too many blockheaded teenagers who were deprived of a good education and our society shows it. Stick to the basics and let Mom and Dad teach their kids how the world works when they think it is time. I speak from authority as I am an intersex woman and was bullied in school until I stood up for myself, like I was taught.

  70. Blake S. Davis says:

    Oddly enough in Iran and other Muslim countries being gay is a hanging offense. Yet the left cozies up to these people, especially in Iran on the assumption that since they hate the United States they must have something going for them. Where are all the protests over Iran’s policies on gays? Nothing but silence from these hypocritical cowards in the Democrat party – let’s hear your excuse for that!

  71. Mediaman says:

    It’s getting to the point where sending a child to public schools is tantamount to child endangerment!

    1. DanaDee says:

      You are so unbelievably right on! But I have to say, some liberal private schools are just as bad. I should know–last year, I took my daughter out of one mid year to send her to a smaller school teaching “classical” education. It has made a world of difference in her life and in our home.

    This is total bullsheet. If these parents at LAUSD don’t vote out the board and replace these miscreants, they deserve what they get.

    Sex-Ed is the responsibility of the parents and not the schools. Foisting their morality upon others is patently wrong, if not “sexual harassment.”

    As far as “bullying” is concerned, treat them the way you’d treat any other bully.

    What a bunch off $$&%* This is nothing but the radical gay agenda at work; using our tax dollars to “acclimate” did I say indoctrinate, children to be more vulnerable and maybe even stupid enough to grow up (vote) to further this agenda to its logical conclusion. So sick of this $#@&.

    I remember the good old days when the Hollywood starlets were considered airheads. Now, it’s the politicians and school administrators. L.A. – you deserve what you get – keep voting with your heads up your butts.

  79. jenny says:

    This is just another reason to homeschool/charter your children. The best way to protest this is to opt out of the system and have the school districts loose money. Talking is great, but it won’t get you anywhere.

  80. Beth Davis says:

    One more reason public school has FAILED us. Seriously home schooling is looking so appealing right now.

    Top 10 Housing Markets That Will Collapse This Year:

    5. Merced, CA
    6. El Centro , CA
    8. Salinas, CA

    People and businesses with any brain are climbing over each other to get out of California. The state is going down faster than most realize. Immigrants and gangs are taking over and there is nothing the government can do, except of course promote sexual perversion to minors.

    1. Alex says:

      It’s not perversion. It’s an attempt to allow children to merely understand that there are people that are born and live differently from the average. With that being said, as an intersex woman, I prefer the schools teach children what they need to know to become wiser, well-educated citizens. Subjects such as reading, writing, mathematics, history, geography, civics, economics, home economics, industrial arts, philosophy, art, etc. are far better things to teach children and young adults than worrying about gender variant people, like me.
      They will learn these things in time if they want to learn them. Some things are better left unmentioned in school unless it is in direct response to questions raised in human biology class. This should be restricted to high school aged children who have matured sufficiently to understand. To bring this up to younger kids is not doing them service. It will only make them more confused and perhaps build anxiety. In my day, my parents taught me about people who were different. That’s okay. What I learned from my parents, who were quite conservative, is that all people must be treated with respect regardless of anything else.

    This, friends, is why our school systems in general and California in particular, are going into the toilet.
    The last person out, turn off the lights.

  88. Steve Ressel says:

    So schools are now the church of modern secular idealism. Nice. We need to break down the structure of this “education” system. People learned more and faster when they had a chalkboard and a room and a wood stove for every neighborhood. It also helps when people believe in something greater than themselves and their lurid sexual behaviors. And I don’t mean the imaginary Gaia-vapor created from an environmentalist’s foggy musings in 1979.

  89. Tamalezebra says:

    California is a joke. Run by Democrats who are more concerned with gay rights then reading, writing and math. Give it a rest already, everyone one in California is pro-gay, pro-abortion, anti-christian, etc. Close your border so normal people can’t get in.

  90. A Man says:

    Dispicable! There is no place for PERVERSE Sex in schools. If they are under 18 the parents are the ones who decide what to discuss about these issues with their children. SF Gays in what ever position of power can go straight to LLEH! Keep your perversion to yourself and out of our schools.

  91. Man says:


  92. Daron W says:

    We have come to a point in society where we have let political correctness run a muck. It is OK to teach in school what people did in history, but it is irrelevant what their sexual orientation was. I personally am not to concerned with what someones sexual orientation is or what they do in their bedroom, but I draw the line at them trying to teach my child that an evolutionary dead end and something that it goes against my religious beliefs is an acceptable practice or behavior. Keep the propaganda out of the schools.

After we are conquered and they are ‘cleansed’ (which they dont seem to realize is the trademark of facist/socialist society) then we can just start over:)

  95. Sandra says:

    Great, more desensitizing kids to the immoral lifestyle. Teaching them that Gay is right. They should be more worried about just teaching them to treat all people nice and with respect, regardless of color, race, religion, sex, weight, height, etc.

  97. GoodfortheGander says:

    If this affected my kid, he/she would immediately be put in a private school or home-schooled.

    This is further evidence that government schools at all levels must be abolished and let the private sector take over. A major reason that private schools are expensive is because of the unfair competition and monopoly that government schools have. The taxes that we pay to support government schools is one of the things that makes it difficult to send children to private schools because the taxes are paid on top of tuition. It’s also unfair to tax people for something they don’t use, i.e. empty-nesters, retired, the childless, etc. (Please don’t raise the socialist argument that it takes a village to raise a child.) Abolish government schools and private schools will pop up all over and competition will make them affordable. Just think, the counties and cities would not longer have to purchase and maintain expensive school properties and buildings, nor maintain expensive fleets of buses. The public would be relieved of the tax burden and children would get better educations, and the schools could literally be run by the parents. Money would cease to be flushed down the toilet of government education, and we would no longer have to listen to public “poor me” outcries from government teachers. What a relief that would be.

  98. Tony says:

    This is part of the agenda to weaken this once great country. If you can, remove your children from public schools. It is time for this country to wake up, how much more of this nonsense are you willing to take?.

  99. JoeNYLA says:

    Parents in California need to rise up and fight aginst these bullying tactics their government is unleashing on them. Achievements in life have nothing to do with your sex life!

    Make no mistake, this is an attack on families, especially Christian families. Government (Public) schools are funded by taxpayers to educate, not to indoctrinate. Parents need to fight it or may have no choice but to homeschool.

    For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

    For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural,

    and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.”

As far as I know just politicians alone, there are so many strange, wierd people there and have done very bad things.

    Unquestionably consider that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be at the web the simplest factor to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed at the same time as folks consider concerns that they just don’t understand about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top as neatly as outlined out the whole thing without having side-effects , other folks can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
