Whenever I wonder why I left Louisiana, something like this shows up in the news to remind me.
Two kids standing in line for recess. One kid asks another kid why he’s got two mothers instead of a mom and dad. The kid explains it’s because his mothers are gay.
“What’s gay?” asks the first kid. (The two kids are seven years old.)
“Gay is when a girl likes another girl,” says the child of these two women.
Down swoops the teacher, screeching at the child of the two women – the son of the gay women – that gay is a bad word, that he shouldn’t use that kind of language in school – and send him to the office. He gets sent to a early morning “behavioral clinic” all the next week – starts at 6.45 in the morning – where he is forced to write “I will never say gay in school again” over and over.
And now? Because the mother of this child has objected to her seven year old son being told that what she is is bad and evil?
The teacher who did this to her son is suing the mother. For fifty thousand dollars. Because the mother defamed her.
Louisiana. What a fine state. Every ignorant redneck should move there.
