School Favors Anti-Gay Stickers

Anti-Gay Stickers
Another impressive story emerged from California a few days ago that could serve as an inspiration for other schools to emulate later.

Administrators just ruled that students at a Southern California high school have the right to wear anti-gay stickers on their school ID badges, just as other students have the right to wear stickers supporting gay rights.

Shadow Hills High School administrators in Indio emailed The Desert Sun newspaper (http://desert.sn/1RAbJPR) saying both protests were OK, as long as they didn't escalate.

The anti-gay stickers, a small rainbow inside a circle with a line through it, showed up about a few weeks ago and is now becoming a popular trending item online. There are reports that printing services had to hire additional people to help them print the stickers because of overwhelming demand.

The administrators warned that students aren't free to interrupt class to express their beliefs, because students have a right to be educated without fear.

One teacher says some students and staff object because they feel the gay and lesbian community has been targeted. Maybe this teacher was not aware that the pro-gay stickers are targeting those who don't agree with their whims as well.
