Monday Teeny Poll

50% of you are in agreement with California’s recently enacted law that requires schools to teach about the accomplishments of members of the LGBT community. 20% are good with the idea, but not sure how it will be carried out in the classroom. 25% think that it should be up to the parents to introduce the topic to their children. I think the problem lies in how this will be implemented. I am all for it, but are they going to say something like “Harvey Milk, gay legislator…” or just Harvey Milk, yadda yadda yadda. Does including the fact that they are part of the LGBT community make them seem more “other” than if only their achievements were discussed? I don’t know.

As for today, I’m wondering how you react to someone else’s screaming toddler.

    I feel the same way about babies and kids acting up on airplanes. Babies cry. If the baby is crying because of the pressure change, there is nothing to be done. But if she’s crying because she’s hungry and you didn’t bring food? The Glare of Death.

    If your little kid is cranky, you need to do something. Yes, he is off his schedule, but being off his schedule is not an excuse for him to kick my seat or whine for three hours.

    My tolerance is definitely conditional.
