This is ridiculous. A high school teacher shows a 2 1/2 minute clip of Brokeback Mountain to students and an “investigative inquiry” is launched. The clip showed nothing sexual. This isn’t the first time the school has been embroiled in gay issues: “Students in Boyd County have been divided in recent years over gay issues since a group of students petitioned to form a gay awareness club at the high school in 2002. A lawsuit ensued and the school district later settled. The agreement called for anti-harassment training for all staff and students.” Guess the anti-harassment doesn’t extend to teachers attempting to teach tolerance.
