I can’t get too riled up about the Austin Independent School District’s new sex education curriculum, not even the replacing of the terms mom and dad with “parents” since there will inevitably be a few kids who have two gay parents, male or female.
So what’s the problem? The real issue for me is the way the school board ignored 7,000 signatures on a petition to quash the new curriculum. They didn’t modify it at all and they voted for it unanimously. Screw you, voters. We’re in charge here.
