'GAY' HISTORY THRUSTED INTO U.S. CLASSROOMS
A public high school in San Francisco has introduced a “gay” history that may become a model for schools nationwide, if homosexual-rights groups have their way.
“LGBT Studies” at the Ruth Asawa School of the Arts in San Francisco is regarded as a valid preparatory class that can be used to fill the requirements for attending California’s public university system.
The creator of the course says it will cover “terminology,” the history of various LGBT leaders, portrayals of LGBT people and “transgender issues.”
The class may be just the beginning.
The Human Rights Campaign, an influential homosexual-rights group, is using its “Welcoming Schools project” to provide “resources” to schools around the country on how to handle issues surrounding homosexuality. The website even provides lesson plans “aligned with Common Core standards.”
Charles Girard, the Welcoming Schools coordinator, instructed teachers on how to “make a classroom gender-inclusive” in a recent blog post that included tips for avoiding “using gender to divide and address students.”
Paul Kengor, a historian, professor and the author of “Takedown: From Communists to Progressives, How the Left Has Sabotaged Family and Marriage,” says the high school class is “no surprise whatsoever.”
“This kind of thing has been happening at the university level for two decades now. On today’s campus, these programs are commonplace and nary raise an eyebrow among students whose sex-saturated culture is leading them to think that one in two or three of their classmates is gay. At our horrendous universities, the gay lifestyle is not merely a subject but a full-blown major – a formal program of study. It is also, for some students, a way of life. And any millennial educated in modern classrooms will tell you that a prime breeding ground for same-sex marriage has been the university.
“So, it was only a matter of time before this cultural insanity trickled to our public schools, especially given the U.S. Supreme Court redefining marriage and imposing it upon all 50 states as a literal constitutional ‘right.’ Our schools will be teaching kids that same-sex marriage is not only a legitimate form of ‘marriage’ but is a literal constitutional right in America. For this, we can thank Anthony Kennedy and the Supreme Court’s four liberals.”
Kengor observed such classes create a mistaken impression about the prevalence of non-traditional sexuality.
