Should Gay History Be Added to Public School Curriculum’s?

The Atlanta Post was looking for quotes from Alternative Lifestyle Experts today on the following question:

Should Gay History Be Added to Public School Curriculum’s?

They were commenting on a recent article by the Associated Press that was taking a look at the current debate over whether California will become the first state to require that gay be taught in public schools.

I think this is a particularly puzzling question.

Since when do we pick and choose what History is?

History is simply what has happened. Do we not teach about a great variety of sensitive subjects already? Slavery, free love in the 60’s, world wars & genocide, the AIDS epidemic- to name a very diverse few.

Gay history should be no More or Less taught than any other history.

News happens every day. “Gay” news too! (GASP) Not sure why we would feel these stories are so unique that they deserve a special place. A place “we do not speak of!?!”  I really can’t believe California or any other state must, “require” any type of relevant history be taught.

Seriously, what is wrong with people… is it just me, or are we really that pathetic?

This is America, isn’t it? Land of the FREE? FREEDOM of the press and all that? What’s the rational here? “Censorship is bad… except when it comes to fags?”

In a hundred years people will be scratching their heads going:

“So wait… this was a significant portion of the population, who went through tremendous persecution and suffering, and you didn’t think that was important to teach?”

Truly… sometimes I’m just embarrassed to be human…

Grow Up Frightened Masses!

Gay history should be no More or Less taught than any other history. If it was an important event then it should be taught. – Bo Blaze, AlternativeLifeCoach.com

      Hi Mike
      Thanks for the comment.
      I applaud your strong convictions regardless of the fact that I disagree with them.
      However, shouldn’t schools teach what is?
      50 years ago, you didn’t like your kids going to school with Black people, would it have been right for the schools to not teach about slavery and civil war?
      I believe schools should teach HISTORY, the REAL history, what REALLY happened. Not an edited version. If the struggle for gay rights was not a major story, then of COURSE it shouldn’t be added to history just to make a minority happy. But it IS a major story and should be reported like any other event in history.
