  • Necro you are very luckie I went to a small school I can name 3 class mates out of 30 who came out after high school. During highschool almost every one knew. They where treated horrible the girl was date rapped and told if she let any one know he would tell the whole school. Anytime people sat next to them at lunch they would discuss how cool what Happened to Matthew Shepard was. I honestly am supprised they made it though.

  • ok fixed my computer and watched the video...i dont think the statistics are accurate, some of them might be but most of them i dont think are. I agree with stopping hate towards the LGB community though..i went to a small school so the LGB community there wasn't teased or bothered at all..so i dont know how things are in bigger schools..im bi by the way and im pretty sure everyone in my school knew it, including teachers.

  • NECRO, THE STATISTICS ARE PRETTY ACCURATE, THEY WERE COMPILED LESS THAN A MONTH AGO. IT IS DIFFERENT IN THE BIG CITIES AND BIGGER SCHOOLS.

  • You don't know how much this scares me. My son is a senior next year and he just came out to some of the teachers last year. He didn't tell me he was going to tell them. I am worried about his saftey now. He has heard some students making remarks and he didn't know something can be done to stop this. I don't know who to trust or who to speak to about this. Can I trust the princiipal? What teachers can I trust? Should I get the Rainbow center involved?
