Anti-gay e-genda: CA parent blasts school's queerocity

by Jeremy Hooper

200903181459And now from the "not every Bay Area resident rushed out to buy the Milk DVD" file: A parent at California's Castro Valley High School, fed up with the school's annual "Days of Diversity" program, recently blasted around an email to a listserv of parent emails, wherein he or she anonymously decried the "brainwashing" that she sees within the school's "gay agenda":

"We have no idea how the individual got a hold of the e-mail list," said Pete Alvarez, school principal. "Definitely the school didn't give them access to it."

So what did this anonymous parent have to say in said email? Here's but a brief sample:

Now I find out that the influence of the gay agenda at CVHS is much worse than I had been led to believe. I already knew that most of my child’s teachers were gay. So what else is new? The hysteria over Proposition 8 has gone so far past tolerance now that outright brainwashing is the new new plan to influence future voters. As a lifelong bay area resident I have become accustomed to the constant barrage in all media about gay parade this and gay everything that. I have got a news flash for you. Some people are more concerned about keeping their jobs, homes and families together than worrying about whether every gay person in the bay area is treated perfectly every minute of every day.
This slide show presentation in math class today was over the top. The kids were given step by step instructions on how to become gay and transsexual.

Ooh, lessons on how to become gay/trans? We went to high school at the wrong time. This would've totally kept us awake during pre-Cal. For one reason, it would've been far more interesting than trigonometric functions. For another, our always-knew-we-were-gay arses would've been laughing too hard at the ridiculous notion that sexuality is teachable to even think of passing out!

Interestingly, CVHS is the alma mater of the gay community's own Rachel Maddow. So at least the school teaches you how to be a successful, well-adjusted, widely-respected gay with a national TV time slot!

Your thoughts

Too neat! That is Rachel's school? Wonder if she will get back to them some way. They defiinitely need to find out which insider lent out the list!

I, personally, would be heavily inclined to believe that it is a school insider who sent out the email. Of course, I may be (MUCH) more cynical than most. And, I don't trust those fundies!

Somebody has issues.

wow, and to think, all those years ago I could have just sent out an e-mail when we were forced to pray in school, and listen to tapes about how the evils in the USA were caused by religion being left behind. This was after the court case banning such prayer and religious teaching is schools, in fact I graduated high school in 2004. Because after all it offended people in the classroom, but when we spoke up we were just told that we as liberals were supposed to be more accepting. I went home, and my parents and I talked about it, and decided it wasn't a fight we wanted to pick and left it at that.

Seriously, if you don't agree with something the school teaches explain why to your kids, oh god forbid we have to spend time explaining things to our own kids! It's everyone elses job to teach them values we agree with, so all teaching has to be as bland and politically correct as possible. We can't teach them to think for themselves!

P.S. Sorry if this comes off a little weird, my little brother is visiting for the week from Texas and he's wearing me out!
