So who decides what falls into this category? What if comments line up with proven statistics or factual information? Children are being harmed and their parents silenced in regard to LGBT school curriculum that is being forced by California with no opt out for parents! This is racism, sexism and a violation of our religious freedoms. Parents are entitled to an explanation for this indoctrination of a lifestyle that is the #1 killer of millions of minority men via Gay HIV Aids. Again this is racism of the most horrific kind.
