Yep, this happened
But the fact that people think this is actually acceptable behavior is pretty scary
I don’t really understand what “Faggots and dykes should not have babies” means. Was he talking about adoption?
And I don’t believe it happened, but if it did, he should sue and the teacher should be fired. Can we get some details on the school, the class, the name of the teacher?
nah this didn’t happen
it’s just like the college professor who asked for the students tumblr URL after she quoted supernatural or the one who dressed as a clown to embarrass a homophobe
just stories that make them feel happy
That’s worse, though. If it was real there would be action against the teacher. Instead it just shows how fucked up our attitudes are that we would get excited and root for that kind of thing to really happen. This is how hate crimes get started, when you not only condone but encourage violence against someone for their views. Public lynchings didn’t just happen out of the blue. They had root causes in the contemporary local culture. In these days the internet makes everything local and we can spread vileness much faster. I know I’m a killjoy by adding commentary to these kinds of stories, but it is very important that we make it abundantly clear that this is reprehensible behavior and should not be spread, especially when you’re presenting it as something that really happened.
