Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation Thursday that makes California the first state in the nation to require the inclusion of the contributions of gay, lesbian and transgender Americans in school history lessons and textbooks.
This might put homosexuals on the same trajectory as blacks and Hispanics. At least it puts them on the same trajectory as women. I cannot help but wonder how long it will be before we have homosexual quotas that must be filled. Will people feel pressured to include “I am a homosexual” on their college and job applications? Or perhaps subtle hints, craftily inserted into their personal essays, would be more acceptable.
I personally know of a person who got preferential treatment for being a transsexual. She was horrible at her job, cost the company a fortune – and yet, when they finally had the courage to let her go, she got (reputedly) a huge severance package so she wouldn’t sue for discrimination. Granted, there is a difference between a transsexual and a homosexual – but they both have to do with sexuality and they are both considered “protected classes”. This means any situation, that might even remotely be construed as discrimination, or harassment, must be avoided.
The very idea of quotas for homosexuals leads one to wonder… just who would be responsible for determining the validity of a candidate’s homosexuality? Images come to mind – of well-furnished offices, inhabited by the “experts” on homosexuality, whose job it would be to verify such claims. Competition for such positions would be fierce. All of the secretaries would know not to disturb such important meetings.
One day we would have a homosexual president, who would appoint like-minded “czars” in strategic positions. High-level military positions would be subject to the homosexual quota – and we can only imagine the abuses that might transpire in places like the armed forces.
Far-fetched? Not really; there is precedence.
