    the minute, the very minute, you propose ANYTHING to promote acceptance of the GLBT kids?

    The parents come out of the woodwork, the GLBT kids are targeted the same or worse by their classmates, and you get to be the target of adult-on-adult bullying from anyone who wants their little darling who would never harm anyone (not) to be able to tell any of their classmates deemed not properly cis-and-heterosexual (het aces can get targeted this way too, once they get old enough a lack of apparent interest in het sex gets interpreted as being gay) they're going to hell any moment of the instructional day the whim should take them to announce this.

    The anti-gay bullies learned it at church or at home (my church growing up was officially homophobic, but they outsourced the teaching of this to parents and so I didn't get taught the way my peers the next pew over did). And those adults can get LOUD and NASTY.

    Prayers and best wishes to those in Japan.
