Sex-ed classes: Being gay is ‘criminal offense’

Sex education written on blackboardBY STEVE WILLIAMS

Did you know that Alabama still teaches kids that being gay is an “unacceptable … criminal offense” as part of its sex-education classes? Now, State Rep. Patricia Todd, who is Alabama’s only openly gay lawmaker, is aiming to repeal this archaic and offensive mandate as part of an overhaul of the state’s sex-ed laws.

Todd’s bill would take state legislators out of deciding the sex-ed curriculum and instead allow the state’s department of education to decide on what is appropriate.
