GA schools: The 'they says it's not anti-gay, but it so totally is' measure returns

by Jeremy Hooper

The Georgia Board of Education is once again considering a proposal that would force homo-gay students to reveal their sexuality to their parents before joining a gay support group. Proponents of the measure say that parents have a right to know about their child's activities, and opponents say that children have a right to not get their queer booties kicked by their homophobic fathers.

The AP quotes GA Schools Superintendent Kathy "evolution also makes me uneasy" Cox as saying that the measure isn't "anti-anything," but rather "pro-parents" and "pro-students." Of course for those that speak extreme conservative, you recognize that "pro-anything" generally means "my life would be better if homos, abortion, or both did not exist."

The board will vote on the proposal in fourteen days, and if it passes GA schools will regress forty years.
