Out of the Closet, Into the Box
|||||Too angry for words.||]|
A friend of mine wrote a rant on his LJ which involved a teacher that I used to respect and one that I do so even more. He're an excerpt:
A few weeks ago, Bob Simon, one of the better teachers at the school, sponsored a new club. The club was the Gay-Straight Alliance. When it went up for ratification by the student council, one of the students literally had the mic ripped from her hands by Mr. Senter, the teacher who was "chaperoning" the student council meeting. Another student got the mic unplugged on her. Why? Because Mr. Senter let his personal, conservative feelings get in the way of what ORHS students were trying to do to bring us out of Dark Ages, so to speak.
You can find the rest of the rant here:
I don't even know how to respond to this.
