from Gay Activism in the Schools
A report in the 'Daily Mail' says that children as young as seven will be taught that historical figures were gay even if no evidence exists that they were.
January 6, 2006 - Organizers of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender History Month have the support of Scotland Yard and government departments in Britain to teach children that famous historical figures were gay and to study sexual swear words.
According to a report by Steve Doughty in the British Daily Mail, this special month has received $20,000 pounds from the British Education Department to teach elementary school children about gays in history. The Department of Health is also sponsoring this month (February).
Doughty reports that teachers will be encouraged to teach children to repeat sexual and swear words and write them on a blackboard. They will then be asked to discuss the real meaning of these words.
Older children will be taught that people are not always male or female, but that individuals are gender variant. The lesson says: "People are not always male or female. Sex and gender are separate concepts from each other and both are distinct from sexual orientation."
Organizers of this month say that even if there's no evidence that a historical figure is gay, teachers should still label them as gay. Organizers suggest that when there is circumstantial evidence about a person's sexual orientation, they should be labeled gay.
In addition, children are to be asked if "homophobic" Jamaican reggae artists such as Buju Banton, Elephant Man and Beenie Man should have been banned by the government from touring England.
