Seriously, this really infuriates me. I grew up thinking that knowledge was a good thing. That knowledge was power and gave you choices in life. What the heck is wrong with these prudish idiots?
Montgomery County, Maryland, the county in which I happen to live, has just leaped to the forefront of sex education by changing the curriculum. What was the big change?
Weast made a final addition Monday to the Montgomery lessons, instructing teachers to say -- only in response to a student's question -- that the psychiatric community does not consider homosexuality an illness.Wow. What a huge leap. The American Psychiatric Association declared that homosexuality was not a mental disorder in 1974. The World Health Organization came to the same conclusion in 1992. It's taken the school curriculum only 33 years to catch up.
It cost him the support of the most conservative school board member, Stephen N. Abrams (Rockville-Potomac), who said he was "extraordinarily offended" to learn of the change Monday night. Post ArticleI rarely say this, but Stephen N. Abrams: STFU.
No one (but your medieval-minded supporters) gives a damn whether or not you're "extraordinarily offended" that some of your fellow human beings will be treated with a minimal amount of compassion and dignity. That this may ease a tiny bit of the suffering of gay students who are going through a great deal of grief as they sort out their sexuality doesn't matter to you since they're abominations anyway, does it?
Yes, this is a sad day for the "We Hate Fags" crowd. What will they do now that the only places they can pass their loving philosophy on to their kids is at home and church?
