Hadn't Heard This one Before

“Normalization (of gayness) through desensitization. Very effective way to do this with a bunch of second graders, is take a picture of 'The Lion King' for instance, and a teacher might say, “Do you know that the music for this movie was written by a gay man?” The message is: I’m better at what I do, because I’m gay.” — Senator Michele Bachmann, speaking at EdWatch National Education Conference, November 6, 2004."

I don't think there's been any doubt that being gay makes one a better piano player since my great-grandparents' day. And honestly, the "Lion King" soundtrack is kind of wan. Keep your kids the hell away from "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" whatever you do.
