School District Forces Kindergartners to Embrace Homosexuality

Children as young as five years old are being forced by one Calif. school district to watch propaganda movies touting the virtues of homosexuality. Vallejo Unified School District officials say the so-called “anti-bullying” curriculum is mandatory for grades K-5 and parents can not opt-out their impressionable youngsters.

“We do not feel that this is an area that students can opt-out and we feel that this is an area that we do not have to give prior notification,” Superintendent Floyd Gonella told KNTV-11 after a recent school board hearing.

Young students whose parents might not have breached the topic of homosexuality on the home front will find themselves forcefully subjected to three movies “portraying toleration behavior” towards their homosexual schoolmates. “Despite parents’ resistance, officials say the viewings are non-negotiable and court-ordered,” reports Afro.com, an online news publication serving black Americans.

The events leading up to the school district imposing its mandatory anti-bullying, pro-homosexuality curriculum on young students occurred in 2009 when a lesbian Vallejo student and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sued the district for discrimination and won. As a result, the district was ordered by the court to incorporate “anti-gay harassment and discrimination training into the school system’s curriculum resulting in the films.”

How do you feel about parents being denied the right to determine when and where their impressionable young children are introduced to homosexuality? Should these school officials express tolerance towards parents whose moral, religious and ethical beliefs conflict with homosexuality and the agenda of its proponents?

    Anti-bullying is one thing… but that does NOT mean the same thing as “forcing them to embrace” something! Tolerant behavior NEEDS to be taught to kids. Some obviously are NOT taught tolerance at home or the bullying problem would not be so severe in the first place. Teaching them to be tolerant of the difference in others, is NOT “pro-homosexuality”… it is PRO-HUMANITY!

    • David Madison

      Dear Janine Clements. I think you are so lost. Please, explain to me when a 5 year old engaging in homosexual behavior is to be tolerated?

      If it isn’t homosexual indoctrination propaganda, explain to me why the videos are homosexual specific, rather than simply against bullying behavior?

    Most of the time I agree with things I read on this site. However, the choice of words used in the writing of this article were for the exact purpose of fanning the flames of Homophobia, and I felt something needed to be said about it. I am someone who still believes this is the land of the free, where you should be free to be who you are without fear of being bullied or persecuted for it.

  3. Well, I’m glad they have found something to take more time away from education. As if public schools weren’t crappy enough…

  4. matthew vaccaro

    it is unconstitutional and it violates the freedom of religion and most of all the high court in the past has always ruled in favor of the parents who knows their child best.

  5. “choice of words used in the writing of this article were for the exact purpose of fanning the flames of Homophobia”

    The word homophobia [and variations] is a an intentional misnomer, used to project an incorrect and negative image on those it is assigned to. The same can be said of the term “Islamophobia”

    [-]phobia
    (from the Greek: φόβος, phóbos, meaning “fear” or “morbid fear”) is an irrational, intense and persistent fear of certain situations, activities, things, animals, or people.

    People who harass homosexuals, or blacks or whites or fat people or ugly people or whatever, are not phobic, they are jerks.
    When it comes to harassment of children by children in a school setting, it does not matter what protected group the victims of such harassment are in. Children will bully and be bullied for a variety of reasons, mainly that it is human nature. It is also an important part of development to learn to how to appropriately deal with conflict and self esteem issues. Artificially shielding some groups does them no good whatsoever and arguable harms them.

    “towards their homosexual schoolmates”

    Seriously, WTF? Children should not be determining if they are homosexual or heterosexual or anythingelsesexual in kindergarten. Thats part of the whole f’n problem right there.

    Having said all that, the main freaking point is that parents should be allowed to make the decisions about what their children are exposed to or not. This is one more reason to pull you kids out of public schools. This is also another great argument for disbanding the US Department of Education and returning control of schools and their curriculum to the local communities to better serve the students and reflect the values of the communities they serve.

    If this whole nonsensical affair was really about “bullying” you could make a training program that teaches tolerance of other people without specifics, this is simply a way to push a prohomosexual agenda to children. Are we going to have a program to prevent bullying against fat kids? What about white kids? Short kids? Kids with pimples? Kids who talk funny?

    How about this – schools should teach kids about math, language and history. Throw all this nonsense out the freaking windows and let parents teach their children about morality.

    • What if you don’t want your kids exposed to math, or language, or history? should we be allowed to take them out of schools?

      • Michael, that is an asinine comparison. I would be thrilled if schools actualy taught, or for that matter even exposed the kids to, math language and history. However, that is apparently not the case since the schools steadily fail to produce results in those areas.

        Perhaps that is because schools are too busy worrying about whether or not a child in a protected class is offended.

        It is tragic that Malagent’s words should find my funny bone. When I was in school, social studies was just one period – not the entire (politically corrected and special interest marginalized) curriculum.

      You are seemingly incapable of independent thought: If it isn’t promoting a gay agenda, why is it that the “anti-bullying” video’s focus ONLY on accepting homosexual identification? You’ve been media indoctrinated into a “tolerance zombie”. “We will tell you what to think, and who to disapprove of: Hate Republicans; Hate Christians who stand up for what they believe in.” (IE – Any viewpoint that does not accept OUR view – pro-gay – is not to be tolerated. – THE GREAT LIBERAL MEDIA, (and Hollywood), has spoken. Obey!)

      “We ought to obey God rather than men.” – St. Peter (Acts 5:29)

    • David Madison

      You seem to have a good understanding of the issues involved. Unfortunately, Liberals seem to think that only they can be right, and no one else’s beliefs mater; (arrogant and conceited as that is.)
      The differences between the liberal mindset and the conservative is that, Conservatives believe people should be responsible for cleaning up their own mess when they make them. Liberals believe taxes must be raised (on others – say those who have lots more money than they have), to pay for someone else to be given the job of cleaning up the messes people make. Call it, “Job Creation.”

      I also thank you, (for what negligible aid it offered), for your not spelling out those profane words. I doubt I could have missed them, unless they were not used at all.
      Are such words really needed here?

  6. Teaching tolerance of those who are engaging in or “embrace” sexual immorality/perversion is fine. That is simply teaching good manners. This is the duty, role and function of the FAMILY, NOT GOVERNMENT BRAIN WASHING RE-EDUCATION CAMPS DISGUISED AS SCHOOLS. Teaching a young person, or any person, that sexual perversion (homosexuality) is an acceptable “normal” human sexual choice is simply to indoctrinate children into a Godless LIE. That should not be the function of SCHOOLS.

  7. THAT is yet another reason that I am thankful my parents decided to homeschool me!

  8. Since when do children in K-5 have any idea about what gender roles are and sex. I can see giving people who are of a different race or visible difference special treatment but sexual choice is NOT reason to give a group special rights and treatment. If the homosexuals do not want to be bullied keep their damn sexual choice to themselves and do not flaunt it. This is just another example of the government taking the parents out of raising their kids. Next the schools will be having the kids try out being a homosexual just to see what it is like.

    Homosexuals say it is “born in them” and so they cannot change, and yet society expects pedophiles and other SEXUAL PREFERANCES which is “also born in them” to change so what makes homosexuals so special that they should have special treatment and rights?

    • Children are often bullied because of their parents. Kids often bully other children who have gay parents. The child is an innocent victim in this situation; he didn’t “flaunt” anything and he didn’t choose to have the parents he did.

      • David Madison

        How many kids have “gay parents”that they are being bullied for? Please, show me the statistics for children of “gays” being bullied. I haven’t heard of this one before. Just one statistical source – that’s all I ask for. (people sometimes just start saying things and, well, a little fudging here and there, for credibility’s sake… We all want to be right about the things we say, after all.)

    • David Madison

      Too late. Kids are already being encouragesd to, “Think about what it would be like to ‘be gay’. ” and, to roll play as gay identifying. It’s part of GLSTN’s approved “tolerance curricula and work groups.”

  9. Values and beliefs should be taught in the home, not the schools. Stop forcing views and BELIEFS on other people. Teach basic educational subjects and leave religion, sexual preferences and race out of it. Our kids are in school to train their minds in basic eduacation, college is for training their minds for the career of choice. It should NEVER have ANYTHING to do with politics, religion, sexual preferance or race. Bullying or no bullying. Everyone is bullied for something in their lives. Stop putting the focus on ONE group of people because this forcing this view on our children is the SAME AS BULLYING. F’n Hypocrites.

  10. Oh, for pity’s sake. Substitute “blonds” for “homosexuals” and then tell me teaching tolerance is bad.

    If you, as a parent, don’t like it, address it at home. Guess what? Your impressionable kids are going to be exposed to different ideas than yours all the time! You want to keep them in a bubble? That certainly won’t prepare them for the real world-where they will be exposed to all sorts of different ideas.

    Janine, you nailed it! Well said!

    Michael – this in NO WAY infringes on your freedom of religion, it does not forbid you from teaching your kids whatever form of myth-based intolerance you choose.

    Ed of So Cal: Only godless as in not agreeing with YOUR view of god. Get over yourself.

    Walter – really? You see intimate relations between two consenting adults as the same thing as an adult preying on a child? You are sick.

    • Christine! I think I love you! In a strictly platonic was of course ;-) (’cause we wouldn’t want anyone here to get the wrong impression and get their BVDs/Panties in a bunch)

      WELL SAID!

      This is not about religion. The parents are free to teach their impressionable babies their form of fear and hate all they want. No one said the kiddies have love, like, accept, or agree with anything Mommy & Daddy tell them not to. They are simply being taught they cannot tease, torment, bully, or beat the crap out of any of the other kids at the school for ANY REASON. The lessons are NOT just about being tolerant of homosexuals, that is just the only part this article focuses on.

      And thank you for calling all the posters on their bigotted remarks! Unfortunately, they are so blinded by their brainwashing they will never get it, and they will continue to perpetuate their form of ignorance & hate by teaching it to their children. Just as my parents tried to do with me… and obviously failed… thank goodness!

      • David Madison

        You know, if it really isn’t about religion, why do schools go balistic when Abstinence courses are requested.

        Can anyone really say kids are not better off to wait till mariage? Of course, the vacuous mind rebels at the thought, “Of course kids won’t wait; that’s stupid. I didn’t! (Which is to say, My way is right.) How arrogant and conceited is foolish the liberal mind!

    • Did you read the article sited above about the court case, and what the student that sued the district went through? http://www.aclu.org/lgbt-rights_hiv-aids/high-school-student-takes-anti-gay-harassment—and-wins

      Warning: It may just turn your stomach!

      By the way, this is not new news. The court order happened in May of 2009!

      • the wghole problem here can be shown in one part of the link you posted

        http://www.aclu.org/ lgbt-rights _hiv-aids/high-school-student-takes-anti-gay-harassment—and-wins

        As I’ve stated before, no one has the authority to grant anyone special rights. The problem with all the cases, groups and their lawsuits is that they address their own little group. The response is to add one more class of people to some law or mandate protecting those protected classes of people. Then you have a bazillion laws for every specific instance – rather then the ever so succinct “don’t harm others”

        You cannot legislate or force tolerance or acceptance.

      • David Madison

        But the push to gay indoctrinate kindergartners with this video series, compelling them to embrace homosexuality, began recently, so, it is new news.

        There is a religion of “Gay Rights” being taught to 5 year olds and, liberals like you can’t see it, stuck in a forrest of mis-education and secular socialization studies a godless and perverse acadamia has striven masterfully for. Never mind the facts, that children having sex is wrong, and forcing them to think about choosing a gay lifestyle at such a young and impressionable age is depraved sexual deviance at its worst.

        If my asking to teach your children to wait frightens you, How should your “Let me teach your kids “Fisting” look to me? ( A School progrom, for middle school kids, that our newest D.O.E. Zar, Kevin Jennings, endorsed while Executive Director of GLESN (seehttp://www.massresistance.org/docs/issues/fistgate/index.html)

  12. This is just another attempt to normalize deviant behavior. When the schools can’t teach kids to read but can teach them about a life style choice that will diminish their chances of ever leading a normal life then we need new schools and teachers not pushing agendas. Kids have been being bullied forever and now that someone picks on a nancy boy they get their panties all wadded up. I don’t remember anybody getting all excited about fat kids being bullied….

  13. I am glad that my daughter is being homeschooled. She is learning at a faster rate than those in the public school (where I teach) and has been coming in and reading to my class of 6th graders since she was 2 years old. While they are still working on their multiplication facts, she is learning long division…and she is not yet 5 years old!
    Bullying is a real issue. It is not something that has to do with homosexuality. It has to do with taking power over someone else. I was always the shortest in my class. I was bullied mercilessly. I even wrote a book about it, called Mr. Martin Gets Even. I understand how it is not fun to be bullied, to say the least. But are we also going to have videos about how fat kids, short kids, ugly (by someone’s standards) kids, freckle faced kids…the list can go on…are all to be embraced. Are people really that stupid as to think that kids are bullied because the bullies don’t know that they should respect others? Wow!

    • Where did you read or see that the anti-bullying lessons were ONLY about homosexuals?? This article screams about THAT part of the lesson, but if you watched the video you can tell that there is much more to it. It’s about not bullying ANYONE! So to answer your question, “But are we also going to have videos about how fat kids, short kids, ugly (by someone’s standards) kids, freckle faced kids…the list can go on…are all to be embraced.YES!!! And you last question, “Are people really that stupid as to think that kids are bullied because the bullies don’t know that they should respect others?” It is obvious that the bullies are not learning at home that they need to respect others, and they need to learn it somewhere. The school district has been mandated BY COURT ORDER to teach these anti-bullying lessons. Therefore, I do not believe it is anyone “being stupid” it is the school following the courts order.

  14. One more thing…. did ANYONE else notice that the student that sued the school district was being bullied… not by other students…. BUT BY THE TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS at the school??

    HATE AND INTOLERANCE IS TAUGHT PEOPLE!! It is handed down from one generation to the next!

    • re ” did ANYONE else notice that the student that sued the school district was being bullied… not by other students…. BUT BY THE TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS at the school??”

      So Janine, your solution to such things is to have the hateful intolerant teachers teach love, acceptance and intolerance to 5 year olds?

      That remark show just how asinine you are. Making government more powerful is never the way to fix broken ineffective government. If teachers and faculty are harassing students they should be dealt with. What kind of sick world do we live in where you can barely fire a teach for sexual assault AND the response to abusive teachers is to teach children to tolerate and accept deviant behavior.

      And before you get all worked up over that last part there, kiss my ***. It is not even from a religious standpoint, but rather from a strictly biological view of the way things work. I don’t give a rats rear what people do on their own time, or in their own little world, but I do not want children taught about heterosexuality by the government, let alone homosexuality. There could be an argument made for some sex ed. in the high school or even junior high school years, but there should be nothing even related to sex being taught to 5 year olds.

      Outside of the occasion lesson on sharing, children that age should not be taught morality either. Child bullies are going to exist one way or the other, children also need to learn to deal with conflict early on. Instead of being dumped into the real world only to suddenly realize that, not only did they graduate high school being unable to read or add, but that there is also no one there to protect them from being offended by mean people.

      If and when a child is violating rules of conduct, such as bullying another child for whatever reason, THAT child should be dealt with.

      When I was a little brat I was bullied because I was a geek. I was into computers and electronics long before the average person even knew what one was. Being different I was picked on — I even had my rear kicked a few times. The one gay student I knew in high school was harassed a lot too. Primarily because he intentionally drew attention to himself at every opportunity. Once he realized he liked being the “victim” and being protected all the time it just got worse.

      No class deserves any special treatment or consideration at all, period. If schools must train students in tolerance as it has been repeatedly stated “but they have a court order, they have to” blah blah blah, they could very easily train children to just not pick on others for being different for whatever reason.

      Since the precedent has been set that one class is protected, then all members of an other class(es) should also sue. Christians are often harassed. Are we going to have training to make people accept them? Same for geeks, people who wear glasses, short people, fat people, ugly people, ugly short people, ugly fat people, ugly tall people, and among others, ugly tall fat Christian geeks who also wear glasses.

      Lets keep it going until the protected classes include everyone, then the videos would take years to show the students and we will be right back where we are now.
