Gay

So my son is in the 3rd grade. There is another little boy in his class who keeps calling all of the little boys gay. "You're so gay," "How gay," "What are you, gay?" etc. First of all, my son didn't know what 'gay' meant, so we had that discussion after he told me what is going on. (My kids are a little sheltered, yes, but we also live in a tiny town in the country, so it's not like they get much exposure to things outside our realm) Secondly, he wasn't sure why this kid was acting like being gay is so horrible.

So, my question is this - I certainly don't want to make a fuss or get this kid in trouble, but I'm wondering if I should say something about it to the teacher. My problem is that he's using gay as an insult, and since being gay isn't wrong or bad, I don't like that. I also don't want a teacher or somebody to hear him and then he REALLY gets into trouble.

So WWYD?

I would talk with the teacher.  This could be a great learning experience for the kid saying it.

I would bring it up with the teacher because I don't have any tolorance for that kind of behavior.
