California Governor Jerry Brown has signed a landmark bill, which will add lessons about gay history to social studies classes. As if Cali has beat Canada on this one! I never thought I’d say this, but we should follow the lead of our neighbours to the south.
Naturally, some churches and parents are up in arms about the decision, but fuck ‘em! It’s about time. Governor Brown, thank you for seeing the light. This is going to help create a broader understanding of homosexuality for young people, and since knowledge is power, it will help decrease homophobia and school bullying. As the trial of Brandon McInerney for the shooting of Lawrence King is now underway, this decision has profound significance and will pave the way for a brighter future. (I see… RAINBOWS!)
Keep California dreamin’, baby.
