"The very next day, anti-equality extremists filed paperwork to place a referendum to overturn the law on the June 2012 ballot. They have until October 12 to submit more than half a million valid signatures to qualify for the ballot...No matter what the issue--anti-discrimination laws, marriage equality or safe schools--these extremists have utilized cruel stereotypes about about LGBT people being a harm to kids and families as a weapon against equality over and over again...When extremists wage these campaigns, they harm us all."

--FairEducationAction.com, a campaign of Equality California, which is taking a proactive stance in favor of the FAIR Education Act to stop opponents from collecting enough signatures for a referendum, by painting opponents as "extremists."
