Page Six Claims Kim Richards Had No Movie Credits; Legions of Horny Old Dudes Jump To Disagree | Main | My Obligatory Cindy Sheehan Post

Unbelievable

Massachusetts law provides that parents must be notified when children are going to be taught about sex (which, it seems to me, would include homosexuality), so the parents may pull the kid out of that class if they choose. Seems reasonable.

Well, five year olds were given "Diversity Bookbags" which included a book showing some families having two mommies and two daddies. Parents were not informed.

The school takes the curious position that depicting same-sex coupling is not, in fact, any sort of mention of homosexuality that would trip the law. So they refused to notify parents.

One parent showed up to demand to know if he'd be informed of any future such non-mentions mentions of homosexuality for his kindergartener.

He wouldn't leave until he had that assurance, which they wouldn't give. They were nice enough, however, to have him arrested for criminal trespass, and thoughtfully arranged for him to spend the night in jail.

Of course it's all happening in Massachusetts.

Let's face it: Teachers know what's best for your kids better than you do. After all, they got very easy-peasy Education degrees from some of the finest fourth- and fifth-tier colleges in the country.

Thanks to Robert, or as I call him, "Robert."

Edit: I said the law specifically mentions homosexuality. I don't know if that's the case; I meant to say something along the lines of "and homosexuality would seem to count as sex."

A liberal poster called me on it and I edited to reflect that.
