Head in sand update #3849

This post was written by Friday blogger Annie Reid.

A school district in Utah is not only looking for textbooks which do not advocate homosexuality (because what with product placement in schools and all, you can’t throw a spitball in an elementary school without hitting an ad for Manline these days), but wants to find textbooks which simply don’t mention it at all. They’ve even considered digging up old, outdated and inaccurate textbooks as a way of solving the problem:

Some board members suggested staying with the old textbooks, but were told the books are falling apart. Call (the district’s director of curriculum) said the district may be able to locate enough used textbooks.

(Question: Can I find an old textbook that doesn’t mention the Bush administration at all? Will that solve the problem?)

In the interest of helping out, I’m suggesting this text on behavior, which seems to encompass their values a bit better.

(Although, on closer inspection, it does suggest to you ladies at home that you “Be a little gay and a little more interesting for him. His boring day may need a lift and one of your duties is to provide it.” Insidious, no? Homosexual? Or just homo-sexy?)
