Oh horseshit. There is no reason that any kid should pretend to be something they're not, just because it makes you or other bigots comfortable. What an absolute load of garbage. What you want is to keep gay people from being visible, make sure we stay in the closet and never be ourselves. Fuck that.I have blocked Clara because she argues for the sake of arguing with no clear position and I was joking on that part.
Some kids are just hateful and mean and looking for a reason to take it out on another kid to make them feel better about themselves for 5 seconds or vent anger or whatever. This whole idea of creating an atmosphere of "respect" isn't realistic. It creates a false sense in LGBTQ youth that they can come out to the world and are entitled to something they simply are not going to get in the vast majority of public schools. You are not educating others. You are giving ammo to those looking for an easy target. My advice to any LGBTQ kid would be to be as gay as you want to be the day after graduation, but until then, keep it on the DL.
Entitled? Everyone is entitled to a certain amount of respect as a human being. This is the USA, not Russia.
