Anti-Equality Advocates at it again.

Rainbow flag flapping in the wind with blue sk...

In the sunshine state of California anti-equality advocates are currently trying to get the 500,000 signatures to talk the FAIR (Fair, Accurate, Inclusive, Respectful) Education Act SB48 to the ballots for 2012 elections. The FAIR Education Act as it stands takes effect on January 1, 2012 was passed earlier this year.  The anti-lgbt advocates are trying to strip the LGBT language from the bill.  Currently the bill requires the schools in that state to teach about the contributions of the LGBT and Handicapped in our society.

The right wingers against the bill are campaigning against it and while trying to achieve the signatures needed they are informing the school children's parents that the bill is designed to teach the kids to admire the LGBT Americans. They are also calling the Sexual Indoctrination as if the bill is designed to make kids become LGBT. At least that is how I perceive the anti-LGBT campaign as it is written. In the eyes of the lawmakers, I believe that the purpose it to teach the children tolerance and more accepting behavior towards the LGBT as well let them understand that LGBT are capable of being just a good productive members of the American Society as anyone straight as an arrow. If the actual facts are taught before the child gets to Jr High and High School age, there would be less bullying and threats against the LGBT students within the schools of California.

We already have LGBT Month which is every October and the schools have other months within history that is brought into the curriculum such as African American Month, so what is wrong with the school teaching about whom we really are and how that being LGBT is of no threat to anyone. Just like any other anti-LGBT campaign in the last few years, they activist retort to scare tactics by using child molestation to get the people to sign the petition against the FAIR bill. They have used many false statements to the public to rally support against us but in the end the truth must and shall prevail.
