The Montgomery County Public School Systems efforts at being a forward thinking have been squashed once again. The new sex education curriculum apparently will encourage young men and women down the sinful path of homosexuality. It is really funny and it reminds me of this other situation. One of my projects in the past involved the installation of a traffic signal to improve traffic safety and operations on a State Roadway. The side street led into a little quite neighborhood. Half the neighborhood wanted the signal and other half was up in arms against it. This was strange, as in my experience the public loves traffic signals and no one ever says no them. At a public meeting the dissenting voices came forward and claimed that a traffic signal would increase traffic in their dinky neighborhood. Do you guys see a similarity here? I do. Let me explain- the only people entering the neighborhood were people who lived there. A traffic signal was unlikely to turn it into a tourist attraction and waylay harried commuters on their way home just as the new sex education class is unlikely to turn straight people gay. This silly (sorry I have no other word for it) way of thinking can be attributed to:
- Most people hate change (positive or negative) and the older you grow the more rigid you become.
- Most people have a totally misplaced sense of self importance. Heck people get a life!!
And what is this whole brouhaha about ex gays…how can you be ex gay? They probably mean bisexual I think? As in if they were gay and have recanted and are fornicating in the religiously correct way (with women that is) they are certainly bisexual. Let me go and read what Ayush says about this once more!! Thank God I am straight atleast when I am sober….under intoxication ….well that’s another blog for another day.
