  3. The teacher should have taken the kid aside and said something. The kid didn't scream " I hate FAGS". He said something ina seemingly polite manner.

    As for the belt buckle big effing whoop. If we want to be able to express ourselves and opinions, every one should too, whether we agree with it or not.

  4. Why didn't the teacher use that moment to teach the student about why they should care about Gays. Did they? Or did they just send the student out of class?

    The appropriate action would have been to explain to the student that Gay people matter, that they probably know someone or respect someone who is gay, and that we should support them. Sending the student out without making that attempt limits discussion and defeats the purpose of the day. yay public schools.

    Suspending the teacher is dumb and wrong though.

  7. @ OUSLANDER

    PLEASE! Polite or not,the kid is still a fucking bigot (I wonder where that kid picked that shit up,as if I didnt know) I dont support gay people is the same thing as saying I dont like fags and I dont think you should have rights.The kid should have been suspended,Not the teacher.If you wanna demoralize an entire class of people due to your stupid prejudices and baseless opinions,you should accept the consequences that follow expressing such an ignorant attitude.ENOUGH ALREADY! Its almost 2011,JESUS FUCKING CHRIST!

  8. P.S. If the little mother fucker said "I dont support jews" or "I dont support blacks" the reaction would be the kid would get suspended and probably lectured by school officials,let alone probably having his parents investigated.Why should the reaction be different with gays.See thats just it.We permit these bigots to express their hate and ignorance.Enough of this shit already.

  9. I’m not sure that the teacher deserved to be suspended; however his actions against the students appear to be inconsistent at best. If he feels that he should be allowed to wear something that stands for something that he believes in what right does he have to deny someone else from expressing their views as well? As long as there is no obvious violation or obscenity then both should be protected by the constitution.
