Central Park School for Children, a charter school in Durham, NC, decided to push their middle school students into acceptance of the drag queen lifestyle. This was initiated because school officials felt there was bullying of LGBT students at the school.
See the story here.
It is sad that there was bullying of any child. Unfortunately, that happens a lot in school. I was bullied in my high school because I was a professed Christian, yet no one ever thought about bringing in a pastor to preach tolerance to my fellow students. Apparently, in today’s world, only the LGBT community is deserving of such deference.
The article indicates that a large majority of LGBT individuals contemplate suicide. There is an implication that it is due to bullying. However, members of the LGBT community have a tendency to have suicidal thoughts regardless of whether they are bullied or not. This is especially true of transgenders. Those who suffer from these conditions deserve our sympathy, but we do not need to promote their lifestyle.
I can only imagine that the logical outcome of this will be that drag queen teachers will one day be accepted as well. After all, don’t we want them to have a positive self image?
Those of us who want our right to see positive role models promoted to our children face an uphill battle. The issue should be about training our children, not hosting events to help people with self image problems.
