School has gone from being about learning, to being about social engineering. Why not, since everything else in America is.
Instead of focusing on being good people, these days it seems like kids are being taught to focus on their “issue.”
The issue in this case is the very non-issue of being gay in America.
As Yahoo News explains,
Colorado senior Evan Young was a model student. He finished his high school career with an impressive 4.5 GPA and a scholarship to Rutgers University, and he was named Twin Peaks Charter Academy High School’s valedictorian. But when school officials read a draft of his graduation speech—a customary honor given to the highest achiever—they opted to silence the student.
The talking point Principal BJ Buchmann had a problem with was Young’s revelation that he is gay. Young planned to disclose his sexual orientation publicly for the first time during his speech.
“My main theme is that you’re supposed to be respectful of people, even if you don’t agree with them,” Young told The Denver Post on Thursday. “I figured my gayness would be a very good way to address that.”
Young sent a copy of his speech to the school administrators, who returned it to him with requested changes, most of which Young said he made. But when it came to omitting his sexual orientation, Young drew the line.
“I’d told him I’m not going to remove the part where I say I’m gay, because I am. It’s important to me,” said Young.
Since when is being GAY so important? It’s not the 1940’s and Young isn’t Rock Hudson.
These little Leftist-in-Training are consumed with self, and society is so ready to remind them that being [insert something human here] makes them more special.
Here’s an alert for young Evan Young: Your classmates already KNOW YOU’RE GAY! They don’t need a lecture, and don’t act like it dooms you for life.
Being gay has become a badge of honor, and I predict in less than a decade, they will have to have NOT Gay rights.
Grow up, I say to the Evan Young’s of the world. The kid is a freaking valedictorian, and he’s still looking for reasons to feel oppressed.
