A parents group opposed to their school district's "safe schools" program (intended to protect gay & lesbian students) distributed pamphlets containing a photo from the news article 1998 Homosexual-Recruitment Drive Nearing Goal. STOP member Marilyn Ashworth said:
"We knew it was a gay paper and we hold that even as a joke, the gay community is proud of their advancements into the safe schools program in the U.S. We don't think homosexuality in schools is a joke."

Asked whether she believed it was a real photo, Ashworth said the caption included the teacher's name, city, state and grade.
