A controversial bill, now moving through the state Legislature, seems to be ruffling some conservative feathers. Measure SB48 would require teaching California school children about the contributions to society made by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and other minority Americans.
A parent who opposes the bill recently complained that his kindergarten daughter learned in school about two gay penguins who nurtured an egg in New York’s Central Park Zoo. He said that, "When you start at the age of five and six teaching these children about gender preferences, you’re confusing them."
Really. I have a great-niece who is six. Recently, I showed her some pictures, including one of my wife.
"That’s Rebecca," I said.
"I know," replied she. "You guys are married. My dad told me."
