Uh huh. You try to concentrate on algebra while knowing that you’re gonna get beat up as soon as class is over.
Update: When I first posted this, I was excited. I looked at it purely from the perspective of progress for GLBT rights, and in that regard this is huge. You couldn’t even talk about such a thing twenty years ago and now look what’s happening… there’s a high school for gay teens. I didn’t really consider the flip-side of the argument, the reasons not to do it. Natalie, despite her self-proclaimed laziness, makes some good points about why this kind of separatism shouldn’t be necessary. As a reasonable, objective person – someone who thinks we should just all be equal and be able to get along – I have to agree with her. At the same time, I still think this is a good thing. I guess I’m just gonna have to go both ways.
