    Oh good grief..


    Six years ago CA included contributions of and trials faced by LGBT people in social studies classes.

    And the state has not fallen apart.

    But yeah, I get it

    Those who favor discrimination are butt hurt over this.

    So, you feel children should never learn any empathy for a group you hate. Wow. I suppose when you walk past a rock you try to guess its weight and effective range.

    It probably relates to several historians who have tried to make a name for themselves by "revising" the common consensus on certain historic figures.

    It's a lot more complicated than that.

    I was once tossed out of a multicultural class by the instructor for throwing her own reasoning at her but a step further than she endorsed. She basically lost control due to the cognitive dissonance that her brain couldn't sort out and the values that it generated that she couldn't live with or assign to herself.

    What did I say that was so offensive? I agreed with her that forcing children to learn a new language and culture against their will would oppress them and lead to significant harm in their lives. The problem? She was applying it to English and American Culture, and I applied it to Spanish and Catholic culture.

    See it's easy to hate Christopher Columbus in our revised history. It gets a little harder when you have to do the same to Father Junipero Serra and you start decrying the colonialism and genocide carried out by Spanish speaking people of Catholic ancestry. Hell take it a step further back and note that Columbus was financed by Spain and thus all the true genocides of the Americans were carried out either by Spanish speaking people or financed by Spanish speaking people.

    Oh and let's teach this to eight year olds with nuance.

    Just say the homosexuals in the textbooks claim to be Christian and watch the left ban them the following day.

    Easy fix.
