Imagine that you want a job running a right-wing news aggregator and came across this article about Ron Huberman being named to head the Chicago Public School system. The article is nearly a thousand words long and, in the middle, contains this section:
At 15, while attending Lyons Township High School, Huberman made a declaration that, at first, was difficult for his parents to accept: He’s gay.
“It’s always difficult for kids. It was difficult for my parents at first. But they’ve become very accepting and very supportive,” said Huberman, who lives with a partner who’s a friend from college. They reconnected four years ago.
“It has given me a great sensitivity for the need to be inclusive. If I didn’t grow up being part of a group that was viewed differently, I may not have that sensitivity. It makes me in tune to individuals, groups and others who are not fitting in and may need extra support.”
While he has an unusual perspective on the issue, Huberman refused to say where he stands on the stalled proposal for a gay high school.
To parents who might be uncomfortable with a gay CEO running the public schools, he said, “There are always those who will look to divide us. I’m focused on what unites us. What I believe unites every Chicagoan is the need to have a world-class educational system for our kids.”
Since Huberman’s homosexuality is in no way the focus of the article or particularly relevant to his new position, how would scare your right-wing readers into clicking on the article? If you answered “title it ‘Man who engages in homosexual behavior to run Chicago public schools,'” then congratulations, you can now get a job running the Alliance Defense Fund’s Alliance Alert site:
