So... yesterday at the gym I watched some reruns of 20/20.... and saw one story about two 14 year old boys...... one of them was openly gay and even dressed in high heels to school. The other one was straight, he was a basketball jock.
Well the gay one had a crush on the straight guy.......... and he would tell him constantly by telling how he felt and touching (his own) penis at the same time, shouting "I love you!" in the hallway, and publicly asing him to be his Valentine in front of all of his friends at bball practice. (Or maybe it was a game?) THere's more, but you get the idea.
ANYWAY, teachers saw him do this and no one did anything. THey said that was not against the rules.
RIght around Valentines Day ---------- the bball jock couldn't take it anymore and killed the gay student. He was originally charged with a hate crime, but in the end he pleaded guily and is serving a 20 year sentence. He'll be out when he is 38.
NO, I DO NOT THINK HE SHOULD HAVE KILLED HIM. But I don't think that kind of behavior should be allowed in schools!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Does your kids school have bullying? Were you bullied as a kid? Do you think this is bullying, or is it fine and it doesn't bother you one bit?
