Posted on 12/22/2013 2:37:12 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
On December 4, 2013 Randi Weingarten, president of the 1.5-million member American Federation of Teachers(AFT), spoke on C-Span about bullying, particularly of gay students. Ms. Weingarten said, with surprise in her voice, that she doesn't understand why gay students are still bullied in public schools, because in 2013, "It's cool to be gay." She also said she is gay, and now speaks about it openly.
As a psychotherapist, I tell clients that being surprised by another person's behavior often results from erroneous assumptions about the person, usually because you see them as you want them to be rather than as they are. As ..Weingarten talked about the love that not only dares speak its name but never shuts its yap, I imagined how it would sound if a heterosexual male schoolteacher said, "The way I do sex is cool."
..Weingarten misunderstands the moral intelligence of Americans, both regarding the vapidity of being "cool" and their beliefs about sex. She is expressing a mindset that mentally abuses all children (especially her new teachers' pets, gay students) and worsens the bullying she wants to prevent.
The fact that the AFT chose a lesbian activist from New York City for their president is a knockout game to American morality. Teachers like Randi Weingarten, whether male or female, who think it is helpful to disclose sex preference information about themselves need to be fired.
Parents of high moral intelligence must organize and take back the schools or shut them down. They have the power.....
The bullying crisis in the schools mirrors the way American adults are humiliated and harassed by their government every day. The difference is we pay for the abuse. And American parents who understand the significance of life and the Judeo-Christian moral code cannot protect their children until they regain their courage of moral action.

” Teachers like Randi Weingarten, whether male or female, who think it is helpful to disclose sex preference information about themselves need to be fired.”
It’s the bottom line.
This provides indisputable truth that the liberals use our schools as socializing machines for their cause.
Heterosexual Pride! I’m a victim of bullying! Rise up! It’s okay to like to opposite sex! Enough!
Adding to that: D@mn auto correct! to = the!
Teachers like Randi Weingarten, whether male or female, who think it is helpful to disclose sex preference information about themselves need to be fired.
Maybe. For an awful lot of people, having a sexual preference seems to be quite an accomplishment.
Utter filth leading the “teachers”.
Weingarten is a psychotherapist.
The sick trying to heal the sick?????
No she is the sick seeking new recruits for her perversions.
There is no “sexual preference” until someone Deviates.
Being gay among the youth is just a fad the sociakists promote to pry the kids from their parents. These kids are basically being taught to be gay. By the time they wise up to the fact they were just being manipulated and realize they’re really not gay the damage has already been done. I know several families that this has happened to with their sons or daughters.
Yeah, that’s who I want setting me ..errr straight, a gay psychotherapist.
Folks are not “gay” nor are they essentially identified as homosexuals and they certainly are not born with homosexual desires. They commit acts of homosexuality. Like someone commits acts of murder or robbery, but they were not born that way and that is not their personal identification but their legal identification, based on actions. Now an Irishman is born Irish and does not need to commit acts of Irish-ness to be identified with their heredity. Once we understand that homosexuality is an act not a state of being we can get on the rational question of how to deal with it (the action and the people committed to performing the action).
I guess most of us missed this one. Have to add that to my "cool" list. /s
That and pretending to be gay is a fad and a crutch attention wanters have latched onto. If you out yourself as gay, you garner attention, get pats on the head, are praised for being brave, excuses are made for you and you find that anything you say or do can never be objected to because you’re now the protected class. It’s your free “Go to Go and collect $200” card.
"Teachers across the country face pay freezes and possible layoffs, but the heads of the two biggest teachers unions saw their pay jump 20 percent last year, to nearly half a million dollars apiece."
"American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten's pay jumped to $407,323 between 2010 and 2011, while her counterpart at the National Education Association, Dennis Van Roekel, got a raise to $362,644. Factor in stipends and other paid expenses and Weingarten took in $493,859 and Van Roekel $460,060 for 2011."
"The big salaries drew jeers from many educators and their advocates in the U.S., where the average nationwide salary for teachers is a scant $44,000 a year. By contrast, nearly 600 staffers at the NEA and AFT are raking in six-figure salaries, according to Association of American Educators Executive Director Gary Beckner..."
