Alabama State Rep. Patricia Todd, the first openly gay person elected to the legislature in the nation’s6th dumbest state, has introduced for the second time a bill to roll back the state’s bigoted and archaic sex-ed curriculum, which requires educators to teach that homosexuality is “not acceptable” and a “criminal offense.”
Rep. Todd introduced a similar bill last year that never made it out of committee, reports the Human Rights Campaign blog. If actually brought to the floor and passed, the bill would repeal the state’s current anti-gay curriculum and place limitations on the Alabama legislature’s role in sex education, conferring trust instead in the federal Dept. of Ed to set Alabama’s sex education rules.
