We can always count on Texas to keep it real….and it’s awesome. Houston, TX is now pushing back against a Houston Independent School District Superintendent, Dr. Richard Carranza’s pitch to add LGBTQ studies to their schools’ U.S. history curriculum. Yes, apparently now the lifestyle and existence of the LGBTQ community is part of U.S. history to some people…
All I can say to that is…it’s a sign of the times. No doubt.
Carranza, spoke during a meeting they had that was focused on the area’s black community, and said that integrating LGBTQ and ethnic studies into their schools history curriculum would provide the students wit ha more well-rounded picture of America’s past. To which I say…who cares!?!? What is it their struggle? Their torment? Their inability to feel like they fit in because of how they see things?
So goes it for the obese, the scrawny, the weak, and the not considered cool crowd. They all experience torture, ridicule, hate, and judgement by the same bullies that bother everyone else. What exactly makes the LGBTQ community so important? I have nothing against them accept that they are wasting our time and peace trying to make a big deal out of something they think the whole world has their eyes on, but don’t. No one cares! Go live your life as you please…
Just don’t tell me that I’m suppose to believe that it’s not against the way God created us to be. There is a purpose and a divine reason behind marriage being foreordained to be between a man and a woman. That’s all I’m saying. It has nothing to do with any particular member of the the LGBT community…it has to do with my eternal perspective. I wish they would stop making about themselves….exhausting. Now there is a curriculum? Come on…again I ask, what makes them so special?
Well it appears Texas agrees.
However Carranza…is a moron. So instead this is what he’s saying about it…
“The LGBTQ movement in the U.S. has a history, and in many cases, many people would call it a civil rights history in terms of acceptance and in terms of who have been leaders of the movement,” he said. “I think it’s part of the American history. To include that as part of what kids study is just a bigger picture of who we are as America.”
When did same sex attraction have ANYTHING to do with any big picture that kids need to learn? This planet is so messed up.
In 2016, the California State Board of Education unanimously voted to add LGBTQ studies to schools’ required history curriculum. The program includes “a study of the role of contributions” of minority groups, including “lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans,” the Los Angeles Times reported.
As a result, LGBTQ content will be integrated into elementary, middle, and high school classrooms. For example, starting in fourth grade, young students will learn about “the emergence of the nation’s first gay rights organizations in the 1950s” and the struggles LGBTQ people have faced over the years, including the fight to legalize same-sex marriage.
Welch wants to make sure Carranza isn’t successful in his effort to bring San Francisco policy to Houston.
“Carranza is an import from San Francisco, where this kind of propaganda that attempts to equate sexual lifestyles, gender confusion, and hostility toward the traditional family has become the norm,” Welch said in a statement. “The HISD Board of Trustees needs to remind Dr. Carranza that this is Texas, where the people of all ethnicities still believe that our children are to be protected, nurtured, and educated, not used as a social experiment of a radical political agenda.”
“Dr. Carranza, not in our city and not our children,” he continued. “The former mayor of Houston attempted to turn Houston into San Francisco with this same philosophy. Again, this is Houston, Texas, not San Francisco, California.”
Carranza made clear during the Houston Defender meeting that the conversation about integrating LGBTQ studies into the district’s curriculum is just beginning. He said no changes have been made yet, adding that it would take months or even years to fully implement a new curriculum.
The LGBTQ proposal comes as state legislators are poised to debate which restrooms transgender students and teachers should be permitted to use on public school campuses.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, has called lawmakers back to the Capitol for a 30-day special session beginning July 18. He is reconvening the Legislature, in part, for lawmakers to reconsider a so-called “bathroom bill” that would require transgender people to use the restroom that correlates with the sex listed on their birth certificates.
The insanity is truly….UNREAL.
