Just a heads up - purple doesn't mean diddly to LGBT. In fact this one personally thinks it's hideous. Hideous, I tell you!
Irving Principal Susette Taylor told the Lincoln Journal Star she held a staff session on the issue, and the handouts were given out by a staffer on a “district equity team.” She said they were meant for teachers, not students or parents, and were suggestions, not rules, on how to make students feel comfortable.

As I edited in above, I agree with you (and the author of that source) that Common Core is completely terrible (especially for mathematics.) I also have a PhD in Mathematics, and trying to justify going along to continue doing what I have enjoyed the most (teaching,) just could not be done when I saw what was expected of me. I am simply trying to find the original source for this idea, that is all.
How'd lunatics get in control of everything?

Well it was a stupid suggestion (crap, I forgot I'm not supposed to say stupid).
Most of us understand that it wasn't meant for parents and students. Its supposed to be a behind the scenes thing commonly known as brainwashing.
