The only "gay history" that should be taught in California schools is a paragraph or two about the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. As a warning, because that's where California is headed.

Californians are fleeing the state in record numbers thanks to decades of non-stop political correctness like this slowly chiseling away at our moral fabric - death by a thousand cuts. We hardly notice the latest outrage anymore. Decent jobs are evaporating, too. Our economy is strangled by so many regulations that only the deepest pockets can afford to deal with them. Those of us who don't live in a handful of coastal counties can't do anything but sit here and take it.

Fortunately, we have the deep sympathy of the Governor's office:

“If you want to live in a Republican state with very conservative right-wing laws, then there’s a place called Arizona.” - Brown spokesman Gil Duran

Got it, Mr. Duran. We just might take you up on that.

It's offensive to even begin to compare, especially since Gay Blacks get treated like crap from racist white gays which was told by a professor of mine who's dating a black man. Even within the Gay Community you have white gays treating non white gays like crap.

No-one said they're exactly the same, but that doesn't mean that one group is more deserving of attention than another.

Yes, actually, I do.
Why do you care what people do in private?

For those of you who think California is Sodom and Gomorrah:
62 paved roads outta here (as Highnlite has pointed out many times).

Nah, I'm not homosexual ... my gay friends refer to me as "hopelessly hetero" ... but clear as can be history shows that homosexuality has been around since forever ... quite out in the accepted open back in Greece and Rome in the "Golden Ages" of philosophy and the advance of art and civilization. Get used to it. The church tried to suppress for a few hundred years and that became a cultural smokescreen. Sure looks to me like those priests wanted it all behind their own closed doors ... Selfish characters in robes and outrageous costumes. If one didn't know better (?) one might think the church was the originator of "drag" ... no?

If you read the Bible you will notice that the reason why Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed was not because of homosexuality, but violence towards foreigners including but not limited to rape. The cause was inhospitality and xenophobia.

The next thing you're going to tell me is we shouldn't stone women for wearing cotton/poly blends after Labor Day, either.

All that aside, why the hell is this a serious political touchstone in 2011? If God did not create homophobic paleo-conservatives, man would, if only for our amusement.

Depends on color ... white after Labor Day is, simply, sacrilege, as all civilized and pious people know ... despite the long natural indian summer of california, one must, in all good conscience, turn to beige and yellows at the least. It is understandable that black is too severe for September in California, but, really, pure white cotton/poly is a slap in the face of God who created the seasons (and cotton/poly blends).

Laugh all you want. But if you refresh this thread more than once, your finest pant will reduced to a mess of pleather. And your sons will become curators at fine art museums, calling home only infrequently.

So yeah, its bichin so many get their rocks off publicly moralizing on matters of personal identity. In the immortal words of Kent Brockman: Democracy simply does not work.

I understand the intent of the law. Becuase gays have historically been portrayed as freaks (if they're portrayed at all), this is an attempt to show gays have contributed to history. Typically, the presumption is/was that everyone who contributed to the betterment of humanity was heterosexual. Sure, no one says that, but it's strongly implied.

That said, I don't like how the state forces this down everyone's throats in a time where we are lucky t people gratuating from high school can read, write, and do basic math. Just look at the abundant poor spelling and writing on the CD forums as proof of what I'm talking about.

We get it. It't not normal for YOU. But some of us are wired differently. Just as about 15% of the population is left handed, around 5% to 10% of the population is gay/bisexual. We didn't choose to be attracted to members of the same gender, just as you didn't choose to be attracted to members of the opposite gender.

I always find it funny that the people who object to homosexuality as being abnormal almost always cite 2 men having sex together as morally outrageous. That always seems to push people's emotional buttons more than 2 women having sex together.
