As punishment for fighting, principal bullies students homophobically.
High school boys are likely to get into fights at school. Duh.

But who wants principal who seeks to humiliate two boy by making them choose between suspension or public displays of affection?

Or a school district that cannot figure out for itself that this is wrong in so many ways?


As coincidence would have it, not too many minutes ago, I posted an article about how dangerous humiliating kids is and how it is a key grooming tactic for sexual abusers of school children.

Principal Punishes High School Boys With Public Hand-Holding

<snip>

Earlier this week, the two students at Westwood High School in Mesa, Ariz., who have not been named, were faced with the prospect of either suspension from school, or sitting in chairs in the high schools courtyard and holding hands for 15 minutes during a lunch period. They opted for the latter.

Kids were laughing at them and calling them names, asking, Are you gay? student Brittney Smyers told ABC affiliate KNXV.

Teens at the high school inevitably posted photos of the two, who spent the time shielding their faces with their heads in their hands, to social media sites

<snip>

The district is looking at how the actions have been perceived, she said. Thats a very important piece to know.

1. These stories grow more extreme by the minute.
Society is breaking down.

3. yep. who would have thought with all the attention stupid decisions like these get, that they would
not realize this would bring bad attention to the school district? it shows that extremists don't have any compassion or comprehension and are so singularly focused on their twisted beliefs they ignore their own stupidity!

4. On the bright side, three more states did go the correct way on gay marriage in the last election.
Rove and/or the RNC used to make sure gay marriage was on the ballot to ensure turnout by their neo theo base. But, now, it's going the other way.

That is a hopeful sign.

"How long? Not long." Martin Luther King, Jr.


However, if I were gay or African American, my response to the call "How long?" would not be "Not long." It would be "It's been way too long already!"

And that is one of many, many reasons that Martin Luther King, Jr. is a better person than I.

It's been way too long for women, too!

Starting with Adam not taking responsiblity for his own actions! "The woman made me do it." Yeah, right.
