Cali Assembly passes 'Smear The Queer'-barring measure
By a vote of 47-31, the California Assembly yesterday approved SB 1437, the bill designed to ban from the state's schools all materials and activities that are discriminatory towards LGBT individuals.
Good news for gay kids and their straight allies; bad news for kindergarteners who say that when they grow up, they want to be "a 'pro-family' operative who works to roll back gay rights at every turn, using religious persecution, junk science, flawed studies, and overall duplicity to back up their campaigns of marginalization." Sorry, aspiring foes!
The bill now goes back to the Senate, where it's expected to pass easily, before heading to Gov. Schwarzengegger, who it's thought may veto the measure. However, we sincerely hope Arnold doesn't kill the bill, so that perhaps the next generation of Californians will grow up realizing that May/ Vito is not the only kind of couple worthy of respect.
