GET OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL

by Rachel Lynch in


What the fuck is going on in our American high schools this week? First, some boy lets his "feelings" out on a bunch of innocent teens in a lunchroom in Ohio, and now some son of a bitch principal in Tennessee tells students, "If you're gay, you're going to hell," in a assembly.

Dorothy Bond, principal of Haywood High School in Brownsville, Tennessee told students, "If you're gay, you're going to hell and if you're pregnant, your life is over."

Not exactly the warm message you want from your southern-bell principal... And the worst part about this? The locals are ACTUALLY SUPPORTING HER! In fact, Tennessee (which has way too many letters if you ask me) has been a hotbed for anti-gay festivities lately.

THERE IS ACTUALLY a bill that just cleared it's first rounds through the House of Representatives this week called, "Don't Say Gay." The bill would restrict all teaching about homosexuality before high school students .

If I were you, I would get out of high school. Shit's seriously fucked there.

But really, why do we keep spending our time trying to pass bills on moral issues when there are people starving, dying, fighting and being deployed? We've got WAY bigger issues than not letting the youth of our great cowboy country say gay. We've got fathers dying overseas and families with no way to pay for their child's medical  bill.

These Republican primary debates are a bunch of bull-shit; spending all this time on social and moral issues when they should be focusing on that dolla bill and international relations.

Let's just look at our calendars, acknowledge that it is 2012, and keep little jack and jill out of growing up in some "safe" world where monsters don't bite and gay people don't fuck.
