Gay Coloring Assignment Has Parents of Nursery Schoolers Seeing Red

Parents of toddlers attending a Geneva, NY nursery school responded in outrage after their children were instructed to draw and color a known symbol of the homosexual agenda: the rainbow. The school has since apologized for the episode and is taking measures to prevent future incidents, including limiting the number of crayons and markers which children can use to color.

A move to limit coloring tots to three shades: red, white and blue
GENEVA, NY—When four-year-old Amanda Parker arrived home from nursery school at East Street Elementary last week, she was eager to show her parents the picture she'd drawn that day. But when the tot removed the crayon-on-manila-paper creation from her bulging backpack, her parents were shocked at what they saw. Amanda had drawn and colored a rainbow, the official symbol of the homosexual agenda in this country.


"To say we were taken aback would be a serious understatement," says Amanda's father Dan, a facilities technician. "As soon as we saw what she had in her hand our jaws just dropped." Then came the hard part: Dan and his wife Margie had to explain to their daughter what was wrong with the picture she'd drawn and the colors she'd used.

"She got it," he notes. "We tore it up as a family." That night, with Amanda tucked in and in the arms of the Sandman, Dan and Margie began to discuss filing a lawsuit against the school.

For school, not pot of gold

Administrators at East Street Elementary declined to talk to the press, but sources close to the school say that they've acted quickly to curtail any damage stemming from the incident. Katie Chernowitz, the teacher who encouraged her students to both draw and color rainbows, has been placed on indefinite administrative leave. The school has also moved to limit the colors of markers, crayons and paints that its K-4 students can use in an effort to prevent future rainbow incidents from occurring and further tarring the school's reputation.


Color me angry
That's good news, says peeved parent Connie Martineau, who called the school principal after her son Scout expressed some discomfort about the rainbow coloring assignment. "We've taught him well," says Mrs. Martineau. "He knows that a rainbow, especially one that includes colors like pink and purple, isn't just something you see in the sky after it rains. It's a symbol of the homosexual agenda."

Now, several of the parents have formed a committee to approve in-class assignments—from coloring to spelling exercises—to ensure that they meet strict family values standards. "If we had learned that the teacher expected them to color rainbows, you can guarantee that it wouldn't have happened," says Mrs. Martineau.

Searching for symbols
The rainbow incident is just the latest skirmish in an increasingly hard-fought culture war, in which parents like Martineau must be hyper vigilant in the event that their children are exposed to gay-friendly images and language in the classroom. Parents across the country are now on the look out for rainbows and the colors used to create them, as well as other known symbols of the homosexual agenda including dancing flags, kites, bubble gum, tambourines, whistles and green lasers.
Three colors: red, white and blue
Back at the Parker's house, Dan and Margie are helping Amanda prepare for another day at nursery school. Into the VeggieTales book bag goes a snack pack, a child's cardigan and a small box of crayons. This last item is new—just a week ago, Amanda routinely took a 64-count box of crayons to school, including a set of multicultural crayons to help her draw and color different skin tones. But today Amanda is taking just three crayons to school: one each in red, white and blue.

"That may not be every color in the rainbow but that's really the point," says Dan Parker. "If she has to give up a few colors to fight the homosexual agenda, it's worth it."
I know this is fake but It reflects closely to what America is turning into

Hey geometry kids, you can never draw a triangle upside down. Hey artists, don't use the color purple. Hey everyone, don't be happy because gay means happy. All pencils are now officially red, white and blue, because black is the color that devil worshippers wear and it's the skin color of those horrible *******. Money is now officially red, white and blue, becuase green is in Mexico's flag. I could go on and on.

Personally I hate the though of homosexal stuff, but if they act like a person around me, they will be treated as one. I'm not one to start a fight about it, I don't give a ****. I understand this is fake, but poeple do blow things out of the water. I mean I know something like this will happen soon. Who cares if a kid draws something like that. The sky has a rainbow but it's not gay. Symbols are what poeple make them to be...I hope my point is present in what I wrote *rereads*

What's wrong with being homosexual in the first place?

Why should they let little children not color what comes up in their mind? Ever heard of something like childly innocence? They hardly understand what it means to be homosexual. Sure it's used by kids when cussing at someone, at least I know it was done when we were young. But I'm pretty sure they don't even know what it means to be homosexual and I think it's even better to teach them that it's good to accept homosexuals, just like it's good to being taught that non-white people are not evil. Chidren are very easy to influence, for example if parent tell them a person should not be talked to 'just because he's gay' they will believe it and think he is a bad person.

And IF this was a true story I'd the school is being pretty stupid for not allowing such colours because it is a sign they think homosexuality is bad. What happened to part of the constitution where all humans are equal? It must be somewhere among those lines? :rolleyes:

If children can't understand sex in general, then we should let then have the joy of just not understanding it. Just let them be kids...They don't think gay/straight, they just want to have fun...

wha a a a t?

Seriously give it three or four years and you wil be getting ridiculous crap like that happening.

So true, though it's not like that here in australia. There is bigbrother wich comes on at 7.30, which involves scantily dressed women getting half there words beeped out, and they say kids actually watch this! What is more disturbing is that the uncut version happens right after the show after it where you have butt ugly guys kissing butt ugly girls for the whole thing.

Commercial television, they'll do anything as long as people watch. But at the same time there's also a button to turn off that tv, or a remote to zap it away. Perhaps parents should take responsibility?

But I think that about the colouring and Big Brother is about two different kinds of audience. Big Brother is targeted at 12+ I think. Younger kids are not that interested in such programs. And at 12 some of them are getting interested in such things. And start to lose their innocense as well.

But young kids who are hardly able to read.... Don't start telling them about such things while they can't even understand why they aren't allowed to colour rainbows.

Apparently some parents don't do that, they probably leave there kids in front of the TV from the moment they come home till bed time

You are so right, but for some reason here in australia there are like 7 TV channels and non have kids programs on at 7.30

OK...DW views:

Back in the stone age when we were a young wipper snapper...A rainbow was just a rainbow. It was an opportunity for kids to go truly insane with every damn crayon in the box....If you tell a kid to draw a rainbow...they will draw a rainbow...Now if you tell them "Kids..today we will draw the symbol of homosexuality"..OK..then it may be a problem.

Now..as far as teaching homosexuality acceptance in schools...argh...We are kind of torn on that subject. Actually...we are not torn...We feel it is inappropriate. We are no gay basher. We just feel that such a subject is better taught by the parents in the early years. Granted...many households these days have some seriously poor parenting issues..but there are better ways to teach acceptance to children at such young ages...remember...those are the days of innocence. Teachers have managed to teach acceptance of race and gender. They have done so by teaching that everyone should be treated with the same respect...the same can be applied to sex without need of homosexuality sensitivity instruction.
Now..if you want to teach homosexuality as part of the Junior Highschool sex education curriculum...Thats cool...by then the kid has some level of comprehesion.

That Prince and Prince book to us is totally inappropriate for such a young age group

I think that jr high, maybe around 7th or 8th grade would be fine for that, but I still have a problem with how the word views it. Born that way? Bull****, everything in life is a choice...so how is this any different? Anyone can go do anything right or wrong, with just telling your legs and arms(or any limb for that matter) to do it. Just teach not to hate because of that, and if you still have a problem with it, just leave it the hell alone. That way you can't create problems and what not.

What the...? Now children are being told that it isn`t good to use their imagination? That they should only draw what others tell you, and not have a will or mind of its own? Next thing you see is a children having a crisis and screaming when they see a rainbow on the sky. This is the next great thing that replaces racism now...
Great! Next time I want to draw a rainbow I`ll draw it in black&white, because otherwise it will mean I`m gay.
Next thing you`ll see is a mother telling her daughter it isn`t nice to play with girls, only with boys...geez!!!
And what happned to freedom? It`s they`re choice, and they`re not harming anyone with that choice, so I don`t see the reason they aren`t allowed to make that choice... It`s like telling a child that he`s not allowed to have his own personallity.
Seems like everyday people are telling one another that: "I`m different from you and your s***. Why can`t people just get over this and be happy?

Something flashed in my mind when you said that, as humans we are the only creatures that are given a free will to decide for ourselves, because of this priveledge we can consider ourselves higher than animals. However the decision we make can degrade us to animals i.e. the decision not to wear clothes... Interesting concept I believe.

We might have a free will, but there are still others in our life, and circumstances and feelings that might block some roads that your free will is willing to take.

(FYI I'm talking about a true homosexual person, not those experimental people who just enjoy having sex with someone of the same gender once)
I think true homosexual people did not choose to become one. But I might be wrong about that, I don't have the knowledge to prove it, but by seeing how 'different' homosexual people can be in behaviour, and I really mean that in a positive way, I think it's something that is not a choice.

Cid Highwind : The thing is about this issue is that gay have been trying to push "gay education" on junior schools curriculum recently. Now this case at hand, this is clearly a way to push their agenda down our throats whether we like it or not. Now I ask, do you think that is fair? Would you like someone to force something on to you even if you don't like it? I don't think so.

Moreover : This isn't helping their cause. And before you get me wrong, I am NOT against gays' rights or whatsoever - I am against stepping on other people's rights. People have the right to see their kids' education free from all sexuality themes - that's their right. People have the right to carry on with their traditional marriage - that's their right.

See, this is a lose-lose situation. If you didn't grant gays the right to marry in a traditional way - they will whine and portay themselves as "the pooor minority who doesn't have any rights". And if you granted a minority the right on stepping on other people's rights, then those people will take it as some sort of "elitism/dictatorship" ( ie : gays are special people - and they're not ). This is why I think a civil union is the best solution for this problem. Anyways , back to the topic :

I don't think teaching kids "gay" themes in their schools is going to help any acceptance ( lol, if not turn them gay themselves :p j/k ). If people want to accept each other, then they would. There is no need for all this nonsense. Let the kids enjoy their innocence, geez.

Yours,
-Elly

There was no need to bring up gay marriage in this thread. Especially seeing that gay marriage does not step on anyone else’s rights. The fact that two guys or girls can marry each other will not degrade a heterosexual marriage (and if I marry one day, it’ll be a heterosexual marriage, so it’s no use saying that I have an agenda).

And the news is fake, alright. But it could very well happen in a near-future.
