Georgia gay teens retain right to not be sent to "reparative therapy"

by Jeremy Hooper

  In Georgia, a proposed measure that would have forced students to obtain parental permission before joining a school club has been defeated by the state Board of Education. It was made pretty clear that thwarting gay student groups was the primary reason for the measure's existence, though we do have our suspicions that militant "numbers activists'" attempts at using Math clubs to indoctrinate Georgia students with acceptance of Calculus simply can't be ruled out as at least partial impetus for the idea.

Whatever the logic behind the conservative measure, the school board clearly ain't buying it; they shot it down by a vote of 10-3. However, those involved have vowed to push a similar idea through the state legislature next year, indicating that they clearly have way much time on their hands and way too much homo-fear in their hearts.
