Stop twisting it to make it seem like you're suoerior because you're a liberal.

And how would those "Christian athletes" treat the obviously gay feminine kid? No bullying? Yeah right. Not from what I have seen.

Its obvious you don't want to teach your kid that it is okay to be gay. Go find some deep red bible thumping state and you will be fine.

I love California for its natural beauty and I want this job, but I just want what is best for my kid.
San Diego is loaded with illegal immigrants, since Mexico is right next door......why not try a state with different value system, more to the North East like New Jersey, Upstate New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, etc.

The value system of these states is more traditional........

Well would I actively teach him something contradictory to our religious beliefs? Because it's PC?

Its really not that big of a deal (the gay stuff in California schools)

It's not like there are whole classes that revolve around being gay... the bill just encourages to include the contributions of LGBT Americans in textbooks. that's it, no pro gay propaganda... no teaching kids what the word gay is...

Well if their contributions are relevant outside of them being gay then wouldn't it be talked about anyways?

Does it cast them in a positive light for being gay?

Is it taught that their lifestyle is a fine and acceptable way to live for all students?

I've found where you live shouldn't be dictated by your political views. I can live anywhere, and I'll find people who share my interest to hang with. I don't let trivial political things bog me down. Taxes could affect me, but how people feel about social views, could care less. People seem to hold strong views about nothing very important, I'm able to maneuver around the trivial things.

Good point. are they going to talk about contributions of people of every sexual orientation?

Where are the mentions of the contributions of Asexual people?

Personally, I would not ever want to live in a red state. I am, for the most part, a liberal/progressive and gay. It is not optimal to live in a red state, in my situation, especially with all the religious freedom and anti-gay laws lately. I must live in a BLUE metropolitan area in a BLUE state. No exceptions.

Fortunately, most states are blue states anyway (26/50).

So what magical thing happens the second you cross the border from a blue state to a red state?
