Bill to ban ‘mom, dad’ from textbooks goes forward

A bill requiring students to learn about the contributions homosexuals have made to society and that would remove sex-specific terms such as “mom” and “dad” from textbooks has passed another hurdle on the way to becoming the law of the land in California.

Having already been approved by the state’s Senate Judiciary Committee, SB 1437, which would mandate grades 1-12 buy books “accurately” portraying “the sexual diversity of our society,” got the nod yesterday of the Senate Education Committee.

The bill also requires students hear history lessons on “the contributions of people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender to the economic, political, and social development of California and the United States of America.”

Under SB 1437 school districts would likely be prohibited from having a ‘prom king and queen’ because that would show bias based on gender and sexual orientation.”

Sponsored by Democratic Sen. Sheila Kuehl – a lesbian actress best known for playing Zelda in “The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis”

I honestly cannot come up with the words to describe this. Insane would be a good starting point, but it would need to go alot further than that.
