DETROIT -- Michigan high school teacher Jay McDowell says he didn't like where the discussion was going after a student told his classmates he didn't "accept gays."
So McDowell kicked the boy out of class for a day.
In return, the teacher was suspended for a day without pay for violating the student's free speech rights.

It’s about time.
guess ya cant call fags fags?
What’s about time?
This is just a wild guess but ...
Detroit is a MoHamHead stronghold, right?
My guess is the boy who didn’t like homosexuals is a MoHamHead.
In the Leftist protected species hierarchy, MoHamHeads trump Homosexuals trump Women trump Blacks.
My guess is the teacher was punished for not knowing the correct Leftist protected species pecking order.
Why must schools use their time to discuss students’ feelings about homosexuality? Couldn’t they just repeat verb conjugations or memorize the dates of all the Chinese dynasties or Presidential elections?
I guess not ...
There's a difference between 'tolerance' and 'acceptance' and it sounds like the student got it right.
Teacher getting suspended for violating student’s speech rights.
Teacher got fired....for saying I have no right to say something.
This was Howell, MI, a country town about 40 miles NW of Detroit.
The Detroit Free Press reported that the incident began when this teacher asked a girl in his class to remove her Confederate flag belt buckle. The boy asked, why does she have to take off her belt, but it’s ok to fly the “rainbow flag?” That’s what set things off.
My gosh, this guy teaches econ. He’s got way too much time on his hands—the very idea of worrying about some girl’s belt buckle!
Wow, glad I was wrong.
The teacher should not only be suspended, he should be FIRED for telling the girl to remove an article of clothing. What was that teacher doing looking at her belt buckle anyway?
Get him OUT of there. Permanently.
Tired of the teachers promoting the homos and other deviants to our children.
There are no free speech rights in school. If you don’t believe me, have a teacher pray a Christian prayer out loud
Fine, they want to discuss the wonders and enjoyment of being gay? Let them also discuss the physical effects of this abomination on the body.
Sorry, but I will never accept or approve of this perverted lifestyle. Throughout history, this utter contempt for the laws of God and nature have been one factor in many societies downfall.
Quit corrupting young people with this poison!
Here is a link to an article with more details on the incident.
This happened in Howell, about 40 miles from Detroit. Grew up in Brighton, the town next to it and lived in Howell for several years. What is happening is Livingston county which was very conservative saw a huge influx of libs in the housing boom there. This teacher had his rainbow flag and was an activist, had the student said he didn’t like Mormons or Catholics in the exact same way he did with gays the teacher would have done nothing but agree with the kid. To be honest if the Howell School Board had a set of gonads amongst them this wacko teacher would have been fired.
"I thought it was a really great, teachable moment," McDowell said of his decision to remove the student from class.
And I guess he got taught as well.
"Freedom of speech" does not mean you have "freedom from consequences" from what you say.
“Its about time.”
My thoughts exactly!
The gay rights agenda has to end. Look America has to tolerate evrything under the sun BS, I do not have to tolerate a lifestyle that is not natural. The Law of Nature prevails, do animals cohabit with the same sex to bear offspring. God has intended men to cleave to women not to other men, how disgusting that the American Society desires US to be accepting and tolerating a personal choice.
Do I have to tolerate the rights of Muslims in the US for sharia Law. Look at the Amish and Mennonites how are they in American Society - pay taxes, social security and yet the are separate from society. If an amish or Mennonite breaks the law they are turned over to the apporpiate authorities. In their religious convictions are they banging down doors or demanding others to convert of have a jihad on their neighbors because of their beliefs.
maybe the tide of liberalism in Michigan is being overturned. It is about time that the crazy isms need to be ended in Michigan. Next step is to run the largest Muzzie population out of Dearborn, Michigan. Sharia Law is not in conjunction with the US Constitution. Okay the Muslims desire Sharaia Law, than the jews can have the year of Jubilee and all debts are wiped every 50 years. Funny if you give into religoius minorities to much they can take over your country. Ask Great britain and France about Muslim tolerance. Look at the Netherlands to see what has happened with sexual tolerance - the nation is a hellhole.
My younger brother was cornered by a teacher in a similar way. When my brother said the homosexual lifestyle isn’t normal or healthy, the teacher asked what my brother would do if he learned his friend was gay.
“I’d stop being his friend.”
Then the teacher made the mistake of asking for a show of hands of those students who agreed. The majority of the class raised their hands.
McDowell has filed a complaint against the district over the discipline he received, but said Monday he primarily wants to "force the school to look at itself."
"I want to force adults to look at what situation we've created," he said. "I would really like us to be more aggressive in our policing of harassing and bullying."
I agree with him. If we were more agressive in harassing and bullying these adult faggots they would be less likely to be perverting our children.
The third law of homosexuality:
Any exposure of children to homosexuality is child abuse
Pittsburgh did their best to sanitize the article. Here’s more, including “teachable moment” and a 2nd student who asked to be suspended for the same reason....
I’m glad to see our kids are rebelling against the indoctrination in our schools. It gives me some hope for the future.
Makes me wonder why a male teacher forcing a female student to remove her belt buckle is not considered harassment.
I agree, why was this under discussion? That is the point that is being missed here. I really don’t think it’s appropriate, it is something that is the purview of the home and family.
ping for later
“Teach” is also president of the Local. Already back to his job with a grievance filed. Just another opportunity for the slimemedia to trot out their pet meme that gay is good and anybody that says otherwise is a n intolerant hater. Time to remove these morons from teaching our youth and crush the unions. We better or we are fighting an uphill battle.
So the 14 year old who spoke at the school board meeting apparently knew he was gay at 9? Maybe he was just taking “girls have cooties” too seriously.
Several years ago I remember reading a comment from a wise FReeper:
“There is only one reason adults feel the need to teach children about homosexuality.”
It was true then, it’s true now and it’ll be true tomorrow.
Good question. Many assignments in high schools focus on the students’ feelings about ‘relevant’ social issues. Facts, figures, scientific laws, understanding economics, and learning how to write a complete sentence are on the backburner.
Sounds like the class is a little out of control. I'm only an occaisonal sub, but, I find that very often the lil' darlings are eager to drive the class conversation away from whatever we are supposed to be discussing. (Oh, like I've never tried that)
I always publicly commend their ingenuity, but steer the discussion back to the topic at hand.
Small wonder I remain a substitute. I should be wasting more instructional time... Who knew?
Another insight into the Bizarro world of liberalism. The brave students who should be hailed as heros need counseling. The gay boy in total error as to his God given gender and purpose is the hero and medias poster boy. Ship of fools.
Why is this even being discussed in school?
I agree. The adults in schools should stop bullying the
inmates students over their political, religious, and social opinions. Just teach your freepin' subject, collect your salary, and get out of their lives.
Tolerance/Diversity = Fascism
Gays have been getting in our face and we're getting sick of it. Do your thing and leave us alone.
The only thing needed to turn the homo-perversion tide is for decent, normal Americans to quit cowering and simply stand up.
But while we’re on the subject of Economics, how much does the US spend on homosexuals who have contacted and continue to spread AIDS.
I get it! I agree!
I like that and I am stealing it.
Good. I was surprised they didn’t suspend the student, which is what has been happening recently. Guess the schools got tired of losing law suits.
I was really confused there a second.
I had just finished reading about the kid from another district defending the teacher.
You can watch the video of the 14yo boy testifying here:
He’s very talented at twisting and turning everything to fit his own agenda. It’s sad that, at such a young age, he has been led in the wrong direction.
The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
You just never can figure what a public school is going to do next.
My guess is that if he hadn't kicked the kid out of class, someone would have complained and he would have gotten suspended for not doing it either.
