Skip to comments.W.Va. aiming to protect LGBT students from bullies
Posted on 11/07/2011 9:55:49 AM PST by markomalley
A proposed anti-bullying policy for West Virginia schools acknowledges that sexual orientation and gender identity are common reasons for harassment.
The state Department of Education is taking public comments until 4 p.m. Tuesday about the 75-page student conduct and disciplinary policy that the Board of Education will consider Dec. 14.
If approved, changes that specifically acknowledge the targeting of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students would go into effect July 1, 2012.

Good old regular straight kids are still fair game?
Don’t you dare hit “IT” I’ll swing my purse over yo dirty head.
I hope there are enough conservatives up there to make this a big deal.
Every time crap like this comes u0p in a state and there is a big shout about it then the left lose but if those on the right shut up then the left wins.
As for bullying, well if a queer is going around school, trying to hit on the same sex, and letting it be known that he is a homo then chances are he will get the attention they are looking for.
Queers have many mental problems and instead of making laws for them to be accepted and encouraging this crap then they should be told to seek mental help.
I for one will not shut up about their freaky unnatrual acts and neither will my young kids and no laws will shut us up either.
The reall bullying will be carried out against any who maintain that sodomy and affeminacy are abnormal and perverted . . . which is, of course, what we do maintain.
Bullying against anyone is wrong. Period. If a kid acts “gay” or even if a kid is “gay”, that is no reason to assault or verbally abuse him or her, period. It has nothing to do with a “gay agenda” or gays pushing an agenda on straight people or gay marriage. Its about a young kid being picked on and perhaps physically assaulted. There never is any justification for that, period.
The issue arises when school administrators use these programs to push gay marriage or the idea that religious views on homosexuality are wrong. That is what we should fight against. But knowing that homosexuality is wrong is a far step from saying its OK to punch or kick or taunt a homosexual. That will never be right.
I disagree. Physical assault is wrong, but taunting should be encouraged. If these kids have any chance of living a normal life, they need to understand societal norms.
It has EVERYTHING to do with the homosexual agenda. The entire anti-bullying push is to protect homosexuals and gender confused people.
As it stands, the way that "sensitivity training" works is that if you don't fully approve of their actions, you are guilty...by deed, word, or thought.
That is the problem with "bullying" laws. They create thought crime.
With your protection of queers and their “rights” to be in your face about it, I really don’t know how to take your “handle”:
Opinionated Blowhard. What are you blowing on?
I don't think so - that's as far-fetched as homos in Montana....
Even with the "DC suburb" status that part of WV is getting?
If they’d just keep quiet about their perversion, the bullies wouldn’t go after them any more than the next kid.
Sir. Physical and verbal assaults can leave scars that last a lifetime. I believe that many boys who get bullied are so simply because they are “different” They are different in ways as insignificant as in how they walk, talk, or even carry their books. Perhaps they are delicate in their appearance. It can have nothing to do with “hitting” on another boy but in things they cannot help or change. Bullies are not out to help understand societies “norms” but to bully, pure and simple. Personal experience.
Wolfman, it wasn't you I gave a broken jaw back in the day for running your mouth, was it?
No matter what law or policy or other bureaucratic nonsense that the school comes up with, that's going to still be the case. The way to deal with bullies is through jabs, left hooks, uppercuts, straight rights, body punches, and knees and kicks to the groin.
