Taiwanese Protest Homophobic Memo
Taipei's Ministry of Education City recently distributed a letter to its high schools recently distributed a ridiculous memo, influenced by the city's Council Civil Affairs Committee (CAC), "banning homosexual student activities in school." About 100 protesters gathered outside the Taipei City Government building to demonstrate the inequality. The China Post reports:
"There was a suggestion by the CAC that the Taipei City government should gather relevant departments to discuss how to 'avoid high school student groups from leading students into homosexual activities,' so that students can develop 'naturally.' The suggestion did not pass in the committee, however, basing on the suggestion, MOE sent memos to high schools advising to ban homosexual activities in schools."
