While I welcome a majority of the new laws to be implemented this year, I don’t quite understand the required teaching of Gay/Lesbian contributions. Starting 2012 students in California must “receive mandatory lessons” in History classes about Gays and Lesbians, and a ban will be enforced on “teaching materials that reflect poorly on gays.” While I understand the teaching of cultural advancement, …I don’t get how California’s government can justify the need for this. What we want is for Gays, Lesbians, and Straight people to live together in harmony; how does separating their accomplishments do anything good, at all? Is there a “Straight Peoples’ Accomplishments” section in History books, or is that NOT required?
