Wisconsin State senator Glenn Grothman's opposition to discussing and recognizing different sexual orientations in schools seems to come [from] his belief that instructors who lead these talks would have what he called an "agenda" to persuade students to become gay.Glam rock had yet eluded the teenage Grothman:
"Did people even know what homosexuality was in high school in 1975? I don't remember any discussion about that at the time. There were a few guys who would make fun of a few effeminate boys," he said, "but that's a different thing than homosexuality."Ah yes, that was good clean fun. Lawd a-mighty, what an ignoramus. It's precisely the intent and the goal of these proposals to mitigate exactly that sort of cruelty. Why do they keep voting for this guy?
I know seventh-graders who read The Onion. They are already millions of light years beyond Glenn Grothman's mentality.
