Californian senator Sheila Kuehl is one ungrateful legislator.
The lesbian Democrat wants to eliminate all the key elements from high school life that first brought her to public attention.
Critics say that if a bill, SB 1437, Senator Kuehl is pushing were to become law, “it could potentially require gender-neutral bathrooms in our schools and all references to ‘husband’ and ‘wife’ or ‘mom and dad’ removed from school textbooks as the norm.”
The Capitol Research Institute claims the bill also applies to school activities, which include cheerleading, sports and events like the prom.
“Under SB 1437, school districts would likely be prohibited from having a ‘prom king and queen’ because that would show bias based on gender and sexual orientation,” said CRI. The measure also could affect issues like gender-specific sports teams.
Senator Kuehl’s brief caress with fame was back in the 1960s when as Sheila James she played the unattainable Zelda in Charles Murton’s favourite video flashback “The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis”.
We can just imagine the ghost of Maynard G. Krebs lamenting: “Like, what the #&@%, man!!??”
