Just politically correct silliness

For the life of me I can’t understand why what individuals do in their private bedrooms has any bearing on the contributions they may have made to our society. Apparently our esteemed governor seems to think it matters. When is this nonsense going to stop? Did the fact that George Washington was a heterosexual make a difference to the folks at Valley Forge? Gays and lesbians have always been with us and, like every group in the world, have felt disenfranchised at one time or another. So what? The last I heard, they make up one of the wealthiest groups in our country. It doesn’t seem to me they’ve suffered all that much. Why are they receiving special mention just because they’re gay? I don’t care who you are if you can cure the common cold and it seems to me that is what we should be focused on in our schools instead of this politically correct silliness. Let’s teach our children how to think, not what to think! Maybe we could actually leave this kind of teaching up to their parents. Now that’s an original idea! Linda Thompson, Meadow Vista
