"Since people are going to be living longer and getting older, they'll just have to learn how to be babies longer." - Andy Warhol

“‘Harvey Milk Gay Day’ would teach schoolchildren the very controversial values of Harvey Milk,” Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, a self-described pro-family organization, said in a statement.

“Based on the historical record of Milk’s sordid life, this could include teaching elementary and secondary schoolchildren that adult-child homosexual ‘sex’ is OK, having multiple sexual relationships at the same time is OK...”

Writers of the bill hope that students will be required to participate in “exercises remembering the life of Harvey Milk, recognizing his accomplishments, and familiarizing pupils with the contributions he made to this state,” the bill read.

Thomasson said the organization was concerned such “exercises” would include “gay-pride parades on campus, cross-dressing exercises, and mock gay weddings.”

...yeah, Harving Milk Day promotes the "gay lifestyle" just like how Martin Luther King Day encourages kids to live a black lifestyle. Y'know, cause acting out stereotypes is how we honor people who were assassinated for fighting for civil rights.

I respect other people who have different opinions than I do, especially when it comes down to hot-button issues like these. However, I can't respect other people when their defense is one powered by hate and ignorance. That is what angers me the most. Ugh.

Other people = people against gay marriage, honoring Harvey Milk, etc. I realized those who don't know me and are reading this comment may think I'm arguing against you. haha
