So if I'm reading this correctly...

School: We cannot include it because it may negatively affect other students and could lead to the student being bullied.

Students: We all know, we support him and think it's an important lesson. You're the only ones being bullies.

School: WHARGARBBLLL

StreetlightInTheGhetto: Astorix: Just like with rural Indiana the best thing you can do is leave Arkansas. Leave. Let it suffer a brain drain just like the rural parts of Indiana. Leave it to dry up and blow in the wind. Move to friendlier states with more accepting laws. Move to the East Coast, West Coast, Canada. Just leave.

You will be so much happier for it.

/I sure am. Left Indiana 18 years ago and the only thing I regret was not leaving there 10 years earlier.

Ha.  My roommate is from rural Indiana.  There's been a few times something stupid about Indiana has come up in conversation.  Right afterward someone trying to be considerate looks at him and says "oh, it's not THAT bad..." he promptly tells them "yes, it is, f--k that place, the best thing I ever did was leave".

Michigan: we're still better than Indiana.


that reminds me of a joke: why does Indianapolis have so many people? They're Kentuckians whose cars broke down on the way to Detroit.

JuggleGeek: someonelse: This really isn't hard to fathom if your brain didn't calcify during the Eisenhower era. Students write a little something about themselves and their HS experience. It's not that hard to wrap your head around. These aren't toddlers we're talking about, they're young adults. Just a stone's throw from being able to serve in the military. A "coming out as gay" essay is nothing shocking. Not to this generation.

Students are writing essays that get published in their yearbooks?

I guess what I'm trying to figure out is what kind of thing normally gets written.  What is it usually about, and how long is it?  Is it a one or two sentence thing?  Is it, as you just stated, an essay?

They didn't do this when I was in school, and they didn't do it when my kids were in school.   I don't care if you're gay.  I don't really understand why so many gays seem to feel that they have to make a big deal out of it, but I really don't care, and I'm in favor of gay marriage.  My question isn't about gays, it's about people writing "their story" in yearbooks.


Hey, Old Man River, maybe you didn't notice but yearbooks are twice the size of the phonebooks you and your Old Man River classmates used to get in the "mail".

They write essays and thesis on how the world has changed (and for the better) since you old pieces of shiat died off.

They talk about the Twilight Saga, and the new guy playing Batman, and such like that.

You don't get it, old man.

And here we see an example of arguably the most hilarious kind of bigotry.

"I have nothing against gay people, but I nonetheless object to them doing things that would be completely unremarkable if done by straight people on the basis of a set of rules that I came up with twelve seconds ago. I will now make a series of increasingly insincere, awkward and outright creepy attempts to convince people that I would apply this set of newly-invented, totally arbitrary restrictions to straight people as well."

impaler: Fark_Guy_Rob: If someone says 'I am gay' they are disclosing details of their sexual lives.

Someone can state that they are gay, while they're a virgin.

"I am gay" cannot disclose details about someone's sexual live, if the statement can be made by someone that has never had a sex life.


I think it's time to face the fact there are a number of cranky, elderly, confused virgins in this thread, and it's probably best not to upset them.

See, if you had just said that, it would have saved you a lot of time in this thread.

Except that it's totally wrong.  I'm a big fan of all sorts of sex.  I'm about as open minded about sex as a person can be.


Shut up already, guy.

It doesn't matter what you actually believe or feel about a subject - you must fit in one box or the other during these discussions.

Then, you need to call the people in the other box names and respond to the people in your box so they feel validated that they are in the right box.

So which is it - photo's of gay sex in the yearbook or total abstinence laws?

someonelse: Fark_Guy_Rob: Sex is taboo. So even though I support being gay, I don't support it in yearbooks.

So, are you not OK with the standard photos of high school sweethearts and captions with quotes about how much they love each other, etc.? Or the jokes that all HS yearbooks have about well-known couples making out in study hall, etc.? The little paragraphs under the seniors' portraits where they talk about how the plan to marry their longtime boyfriend or girlfriend? They out, too?

letrole: hardinparamedic: Race and sexual preference are both inborn traits that are unchangeable by psychiatric, religious, or medical treatments.

Homosexuality is a Learned Behaviour. The instinct for sex involves thrusting and groping and kissing and so forth. If you get horny at the sight of a naked man, or if you get horny at the sight of a naked woman, it is only because you have been taught to make that association.

Bushmen don't have any more interest in female breasts than they do in elbows. The Western fascination with breasts is not instinctive. Certain deviants find stinky feet to be objects of desire. There is very little 'hard-wiring' involved in sexual attraction. You grope and fondle and kiss with whatever you've been taught to be appropriate.

I don't know what his coming out story said, but I'm guessing there's not a lot of "since I came out, I'm getting more cock than a henhouse" in it.

What if it was a foreign student's story of being the new kid at the school and how accepting everyone was of him/her? Would THAT story be banned as well?
