Response to politicat (Reply #28)

29. I was a mormon living in Utah in the 70's and my first thought went to

someone homophobic trying to set up a gay teacher to be fired. I have no doubt that lots of
gay teachers have been fired in Utah based on rumors that they are gay or accusations of
misconduct from kids raised in very mormon and very homophobic homes.

As a kid in the 70's I was bullied mercilessly by the mormon kids who assumed I was gay.
I didn't even know what "gay" meant at that time. It was 6th and 7th grade. The worst
bullies were the bishops kids. I skipped so much school to avoid them that I nearly failed
the 6th grade. Then I got put in slow classes in 7th grade because they assumed I wasn't
intelligent. Anyway, Utah was the NIGHTMARE of my life.
