Poland tries to become homorein

We had a walk-out in World Civ a few years back by students who were offended by our content dealing with homosexuality. What was our content dealing with homosexuality? It was the following shocking information:

"Another thing about Greek culture was that it was very accepting of male homosexuality, which was often seen as a sort of ideal relationship."
That was it.

At this point, the section on homosexuality ended. And no, we did not show Fellini's Satyricon or the classic film Caligula. And yet a handful of students felt we had warped their fragile little minds (to quote Eric Cartman) and walked out. No great loss.

Anyway, my point is that people who say they want to keep the "promotion" of homosexuality out of schools are full of shit. What they want is a world in which homosexuals do not exist and have never existed because homosexuals trouble them greatly. They're Adult Babies. For example, the Education Minister of Poland has drafted a bill to prevent the "promotion" of homosexuality in schools by banning any discussion of homosexuality in schools and universities and firing all gay teachers who can be identified as gay, regardless of what they have said. So don't ask, don't tell, don't be.

I think it's good that gays and the people who love them work to change public opinion, and generally I support rational and diplomatic methods to do this. However, it also seems to be the case that there are some people who one cannot reason with because they're simply insane. They want a world that is homorein. For a 'plan b', I think gays should generally own guns.
