Is America becoming less tolerant of the LGBTQ movement?

  • According to a June 2023 Gallup Poll, the percentage of Americans who consider same-sex relations to be morally acceptable dropped from 71 percent to 64 percent over the last year.

Before we speculate about the cause of this data, let’s take a look at the timeline of the LGBTQ movement:


1973: The American Psychiatric Association removes homosexuality from its list of mental disorders.

1974: The first gay pride marches are held in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago.

1986: Courts rule that there is no constitutional protection for sodomy in Bowers v. Hardwick. Ruling allows sodomy to continue being criminally prosecuted in states where laws prohibit homosexual activity.

1987: The Supreme Court of the United States rules that sexual orientation is not a constitutionally protected class.

1993: DEFENSE DIRECTIVE 1304.26: “DON’T ASK, DON’T TELL” ISSUED. The “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, prohibiting lesbian, gay, and bisexual people from coming out or telling others about anything related to their sexuality, is codified on this date. This bill maintained previous bans on LGBTQ people’s participation in the military from 1949 and 1982. Then it prohibited members from explicitly asking each other about their sexualities, thereby allowing closeted members of the military to effectively “fly under the radar.”

1996: Congress passes the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which defines marriage as between one man and one woman for federal purposes (SIGNED BY PRESIDENT CLINTON).

2003: Lawrence v. Texas ruling overturns the previous ruling on Bowers v. Hardwick and declares sodomy laws unconstitutional.

2003: The Supreme Court of the United States rules that same-sex sexual activity is legal in all 50 states.

2004: Massachusetts becomes the first state to legalize same-sex marriage.

2009: Proclamation 8387 signed, establishing lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender pride month. President Barack Obama dedicates June as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender pride month.

2011: California passes the FAIR Education Act, requiring that all public schools in the state teach about the contributions of LGBTQ people to history and culture.


After the introduction of this idea in 2009 — and the backing of it by President Obama during the State of the Union address — the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy, excluding LGBT people from the military, is repealed.

2012: The American Psychological Association (APA) releases a report stating that there is no scientific basis for the belief that being LGBTQ is a mental disorder.

2013: California ab 1266: SCHOOL SUCCESS AND OPPORTUNITY ACT is introduced and approved. This bill requires schools to allow students to participate in programs and use facilities consistent with their gender identity.

2013: “Gender identity disorder” updated to “gender dysphoria” in the diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders (dsm-5).

2015: The Supreme Court rules in Obergefell v. Hodges that the fundamental right to marry is guaranteed to same-sex couples by the Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses of the 14th Amendment. This decision legalizes same-sex marriage in all 50 states.

2015: Insurance companies in the federal employee’s health benefits program are required to cover transition-related healthcare.

It can be said that this movement escalated quickly. However, data shows that gay marriage has been considered acceptable by the majority of western society for the last 20 years.

The part that is not acceptable to the majority of people is the act of promoting gay sex within the school system. How did that start?

The teaching of LGBTQ-related material in schools:

  • The main reason why schools have started teaching LGBTQ-related material is that there is a legal mandate to do so in some states.
  • For example, California passed the Fair, Accurate, Inclusive, and Respectful (FAIR) Education Act in 2011, and requires that all public schools in the state teach about the contributions of LGBTQ people to history and culture.
  • Policies that make LGBTQ-related material mandatory in schools are typically approved by state legislatures. In some cases, these policies are the result of grassroots activism, while in other cases they are initiated by government officials. Once a policy is approved, it is then implemented by school districts.

Who was most responsible for the California FAIR Education Act?

  • Equality California (EQCA)
  • Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN)
  • Human Rights Campaign (HRC)
  • National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR)
  • Transgender Law Center (TLC)

What do these nonprofit organizations all have in common?

As of June 2023, there are six states that make it mandatory to teach LGBTQ-related material in schools:

  • California
  • Colorado
  • Illinois
  • Nevada
  • New Jersey
  • Oregon

These states have all passed laws or regulations that require schools to teach about the contributions of LGBTQ people to history and culture, and to address LGBTQ issues.

In addition to these states, there are several other states that have policies in place that encourage the teaching of LGBTQ-related material. For example, the New York State Education Department has issued guidance to schools that states that “all students should be taught about the contributions of LGBTQ people to society, and that LGBTQ issues should be addressed in a respectful and inclusive way.”

Is it a coincidence that these numbers look the way they do?

What can you do about it?

  • If you have kids, run for your local school board to fight this.
  • If you don’t have kids, consider running for Congress.

  • THANK YOU BARACK for giving one LONNNG month to the gays. Why? VOTES. Thats it. PERIOD. WE do NOT need to be celebrated. I am deeply sickened when I see the hijacked color spectrum on anything related to my community. When I am in public for any reason I have,NEVER ONCE, thought it important for someone to know my sexual orientation. We got what we asked for in being able to marry (although I chose not to). There was incredible harassment….(the stories are endless)….that pretty much ended. I always thought that the flagrant gay guys needed to stop the “in your face” gay crap if they wanted to be respected……I now feel the same for the women. For schools to be teaching children what “gays” have contributed is ridiculous. We are NOT A RACE. We are people who HAVE CHOSEN to live a certain lifestyle for various reasons. We either contribute or we don’t. This community has turned into military style zealots. It reminds me of being part of the Born again christian community that I left after 36 years….you either believed what you were told to or you were “nothing”. ….You were in or you were out. My heart was so full when people FINALLY ACCEPTED US. The community is now “blowing it”. The speaking about it in any way before jr high is Child abuse and disgusting. My 8 year old grand daughter who has been near me since birth….who announced at age 5 that “Im just lettin ya know gramma, I like boys and I will definitely marry a boy”!……..WAS literally flabbergasted and then got the giggles 2 months ago when she all of a sudden realized that GRAMMA WAS GAY!!……Probably one of the funniest conversations that we have ever had together. NOTHING NEEDED to be talked about regarding sex. She asked questions, she then asked her 10 yr old brother if he knew….she could not believe it. She then wanted to call her best friend and announce it to her. My grandson immediately put the “nix” on the idea, because it was “dumb” 🤣🤣🤣 We were sitting down for her to teach me math. She asked me to leave the room and she would get the classroom ready. When she called me back in, she had a big smirk on her face. “Here is your half of the white board student”………which on the top read “gay gramma”. She folded on the floor erupting in giggles all over again. Her brother started laughing as well….which in turn caused me to start laughing as well. We proceeded to play school…………..ME being gay” has never been brought up since. POINT BEING………they ARE CHILDREN!!!!! For me to try and educate them would be abusive and disgusting. Children in the neighborhood don’t ask. There are no flags!. All they know is I will play in the street w them if I am outside. Being gay is NOT a mental disorder. HOWEVER IF…….a teacher wants to tell their students about THEIR CHOSEN LIFESTYLE then THEY ARE TRULY MENTALLY ILL AND A PREDATOR. Thank you Barack. Not only did you awaken racism once again, but you awoke a community of parents who are dying to tell their friends that their “kid” is an activist. 🫣🫣🫣A deep sigh, as I take it all in.
