Queerty is better as a member
And we expect these people to keep our schools safe for our gay youth? Good for the school board, but having been on the recieving end of homophobia from a teacher (who was a young black man, who I was convinced would have been an ally when I was bullied in school, but instead would LAUGH with the bullies when they taunted me and actually sometimes give them a hand shake) I know first hand there’s some homophobic teachers who haven’t been caught, and who are systimatically encouraging homophobia in schools. This is killing our youth.
Religious people, especially the Christian taliban in our society, have completely ruined society. And religion doesn’t nearly get called out enough, given the mess so many of it’s members create. We treat religion like some sacred valley to never offend. Ridiculous.
The opressed yesterday, being the opressor today just fascinates me. It’s just a facinating fascinating human trait that I really can’t grasp.
Can you image what LGBT kids go through these days? They have nut job religious teachers who think they’ll all burn in hell, they have school principals in part of the country recorded as saying gays will die of painful deaths and AIDS in school assembelies, and they are constantly bashed for being gay even when they get home from school. At 13 to deal with all that, while fighting hormones and figuring out who you are? Not cool.
If this hate were targetting any other demographics kid- Hispanic, black, female, Christian- you better believe the entire nation would have to come together and have a national dialogue until things get resolved. But since it’s happening to our gay children? It mostly goes overlooked by society.
That’s why each of us as members of LGBT have a DUTY to get involved in our fight for equality. To truly make it better for the next generation.
I can’t stand christians
Don’t let the door hit you where your bigoted lord split you.
It’s important to note, this venemous “teacher” also went up to a lesbian student and told her that gay people will burn in hell. See, the thing with most religious people is, they can’t just ya know…be religious. They have to hatefully be religious, let you know it, threaten you with it, then cry victim when you say “Keep your religious BULL SHEYYET out of my child’s exposure” These religious loonies want to be able to have a free pass to be above rules and regulations. Why? because you pray to a magical fairy in the sky? Read you contract, obey employment regulations, or get your position filled by a far less high maintnence, and far more qualified individual.
We as a community need to be galvanized, and challenge homophobia where and when we can. It’s not just about us, it’s about creating a better tomorrow for our GLBT kids, as the GLBT before us ensured did for us.
She needs a dose of my fav striaght ally Chris Kluwe:
“Where, in all of Jesus’ teachings, did he ever say to deny the humanity of other human beings; where did the Son of God proclaim that mortal Man knew God’s will; where, pray tell, did Jesus ever say to harden your heart against those who may not be exactly the same as you?
I say to you – nowhere. Nowhere does Jesus preach hate, or intolerance, or loathing. Nowhere does Jesus say, “You shall deny the humanity of gay people because it makes you feel uncomfortable”. Nowhere does Jesus say, “And the mortal men of the Church shall be the sole conduits of the Word of God, for they are perfect and infallible.” Nowhere, in all of the recorded teachings of Jesus, does it say anything about discrimination or prejudice.
“But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”
Good riddance! But it burns me that she is getting a “disability pension.” F*ck her and her christofascist beliefs.
Note to EX-teacher: TYPING IN ALL CAPS IS UNNATURAL AND I/WE DO NOT HAVE TO ACCEPT IT!
She crazy. What else is there to say, really.
wow…. what too bad that bitch does not live in 1812 when she could be whipped good for here comments.
She might have requested disability, but it has to be approved first.
Omg She calls herself a teacher. Preaching about hate and how ignorant she sounds. Wow I though Jesus teachings suppose to love thy neighbor. I guess she missed the lecture on for the class. So Christian like! LOL I am glad she resigned her reputation in the school is already hot mess! Good luck finding another job!

Pot calling the kettle black (hehe). Isn’t gluttony considered immoral behavior? Looks like Vicky and the hubby are no strangers to overindulging in excess calories. Funny how church people pick and choose which “immoral behaviors” are okay and which ones aren’t.
