It would be nice to think that you wouldn't need legislation to prevent schools from teaching an anti-gay curriculum.
But in Alabama there is actually a state curriculum that requires teachers to teach that "homosexuality is an unacceptable, criminal lifestyle."
That is a pretty horrifying message on so many levels, which is why is is great that someone is trying to tackle it. That someone is a state representative named, Patricia Todd, who recently introduced a bill that would curb the state legislature's role in sex education, as well as repeal the anti-gay curriculum.
Unfortunately, there is no certainty that the bill will pass, since Todd actually introduced a similar bill last year which didn't!
Do any of you go to school in Alabama? What have your learned about being gay?
