Fletch Intolerance to sexual oreintation in US High Schools

In the United States at the moment, interesting things are afoot. A certain group has distributed flyers to high schools urging tolerance for the sexual orientation of their community. At one high school, Winston Churchill High School, a group within the school was allowed to place trash cans in the school halls to encourage students to dump these flyers with the Principal standing by to make sure this dumping of flyers wasn't disturbed.

Who was this group distributing flyers and why are they so hated? (and even compared to the Ku Klux Klan by one teacher). Are they homosexuals trying to push their agenda? No...

The group is PFOX - Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays.

It seems that it's fine for gays to push for tolerance of people's orientation as long as it's their own orientation; however, when it comes to ex-gays they don't know the meaning of the word 'tolerance'. It seems ex-gays are the object of much discrimination by these cheerleaders of freedom of sexual orientation. Perhaps they are afraid their own gayness won't "stick"? Or that it's not as innate as they think it is. Can you say "hypocrite"?

Speaking of which - the same article mentions that Montgomery County School Board has OK'd a new sex education curriculum for public schools (maybe breaking state and federal laws) that states that being homosexual is "innate", even though there are no studies to support such a claim -

“According to the American Psychiatric Association, there are no replicated scientific studies supporting any specific biological cause for homosexuality. But now the Montgomery County Board of Education has done what science and medicine could not do by declaring in its newly approved curriculum that homosexuality is “innate” or inborn. The board could not produce any factual evidence for what it will now teach students -- only political “pledges” and payoffs for last year’s school board elections as claimed by gay rights activists.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Signs Bills Forcing Schools to Promote
Transsexuality, Bisexuality, and Homosexuality to Five Year Olds

"Every school a homosexual-bisexual-transsexual indoctrination center"

SACRAMENTO, Oct. 12 /Christian Newswire/ -- Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed into law two bills requiring all public school instruction and activities to positively portray transsexuality, bisexuality, and homosexuality to children as young as kindergarten. He has also signed bills undermining marriage and infringing upon the moral conscience of business owners, churches, and nonprofit organizations.

Late Friday, Schwarzenegger signed SB 777 (transsexual, bisexual, homosexual indoctrination of schoolchildren by requiring changes to all instruction and activities) and AB 394 (transsexual, bisexual, homosexual indoctrination of students, parents, and teachers via "anti-harassment" training). Signing the bills was a switch for Schwarzenegger, who vetoed nearly the same bills last year, in the midst of his reelection campaign.

"Arnold Schwarzenegger has delivered young children into the hands of those who will introduce them to alternative sexual lifestyles," said Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families (CCF), which helped lead the statewide charge against these bills. "This means children as young as five years old will be mentally molested in school classrooms. Shame on Schwarzenegger and the Democrat politicians for ensuring that every California school becomes a homosexual-bisexual-transsexual indoctrination center."

SB 777 prohibits any "instruction" or school- sponsored "activity" that "promotes a discriminatory bias" against "gender" (the bill's definition includes cross-dressing and sex changes) and "sexual orientation" (the bill's definition includes bisexuality). Because no textbook or instruction in California public schools currently disparages transsexuality, bisexuality, or homosexuality, the practical effect of SB 777 will be to require positive portrayals of these sexual lifestyles at every government-operated school. Otherwise, "discriminatory" schools will be subject to intimidation and lawsuits by the State Department of Education.

Under SB 777, which will go into effect on January 1, 2008, the following could be eliminated from California public schools because they are deemed to have a "discriminatory bias":

Textbooks and other instruction that portray marriage as only between a man and a woman
Textbooks and other instruction that say people are born male or female (and not in between)
Textbooks and other instruction that leave out transsexual, bisexual, and homosexual historical figures
Sex education and school assemblies that omit the option of hormone injections or sex changes
Homecoming king and queen contests that allow only boys to run for king and only girls to run for queen
Boys' and girls' bathrooms that separate biological boys from biological girls
