A Lesson In Imaginative Discrimination

Florida School Bans “Sex Clubs”

The Okeechobee County School Board got creative when it banned a gay straight alliance:

The Okeechobee County School Board has banned so-called “sex-based” clubs, a move the ACLU has called another attack on members of the Gay-Straight Alliance of Okeechobee High School.

In a unanimous vote Tuesday, school board members adopted the policy that bans any club that is “sex-based or based upon any sexual grouping, orientation or activity of any kind.”

District officials have said the new policy, which takes effect immediately, aims to ban clubs that challenge the district’s abstinence-only education.

So, the school not only gets to ban the group, but successfully boiled sexual identity down to sex acts. A for effort, F for equality.
