The California Senate passed a bill mandating California's public schools include homosexual (gay) history in social studies lessons. Homosexual supporters state the move is sorely needed to counter anti-homosexual stereotypes that make gay, lesbian, and bisexual students vulnerable to bullying and suicide. Opponents believe that the newly mandated homosexual history material bill will burden an already crowded curriculum and expose young students to objectionable acts of decency. The Senate bill leaves the actual details of the homosexual curriculum to individual school districts. Homosexuals including gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people would be added to the list of ethnic groups that public schools must include in social studies lessons under the landmark bill passed Thursday by the California Senate. It will be the first such law in the country.
