    Hmmmmm, I wonder if the principal`s religion had anything to do with this?

    This is blatant discrimination and the ACLU will win this case and the district will have to pay settlements to those outed students. Hopefully, the principal will lose her job, too. Maybe her church can nuture her while she`s unemployed, the damn bitch.

    Thats so fking wrong. By "sexual activity" I`m guessing they mean kissing. What a repressed country!

    It was still a huge invasion of privacy. She didnt have to "out" anyone. She should have talked to the students first, then said if it continues she will contact their parents. Wrong wrong worng on so many levels!

    This is high school? And how long do relationship last in high school? People are always breaking up with each other and then going out with other people. Unless the principal was planning on remaking the list each week I think it was a pretty pointless plan. And why did the principal have to tell the parents who they were in a relationship with? Couldn`t she just have said so and so`s in a relationship if she really thought it was necessary to tell the parents?

    Smagboy....why did you have to pull religion into this? That was really kind of random...I mean I can see where you`re coming from (I guess....) but...religion wasn`t even mentioned in the video. O.o;

    Ah yes...the video...well...It might not have been discrimination because she called straight couples parents too...Or thats what the video said at least. Maybe she`s just stupid 8D. But straight or gay it is an invasion of privacy and she should have handled it a lot better. Someone mentioned before about talking to the students first and warning them, and I agree. Honestly though, if the straight student is going out with someone, their parents probably know. If they gay student is going out with someone, have common sense to leave it alone. Even having a slight chance of outing a student to their parents should make you say "Hm. I should back the hell up off this." because you could cause a whole lot of turmoil at home. And feel like a mean jackass. Wee the end.

    Maddogg, how can you make that statement ("What a repressed country!") by an assumption of your own ("By "sexual activity" I`m guessing they mean kissing.")? You aren`t being logical, you are just making things up!
    If they say sexual activity, they probably mean it. I wouldn`t put it passed people to randomly decide to have oral sex in public at school, to be honest.

    DrewK, yeah sure parents have a right to know, but there are a lot of homophobic parents out there and this could put some kids in danger.

    i had a friend once whose dad found out he was gay, so he beat him up and kicked him out of his house

    plus i think thats something you would want to tell your parents yourself, at the time that is comfortable for you


    oh and i love how they try to convince people to call that one guy to see records "that you as a tax payer own" haha

    I am going to go out on a limb and guess that DrewK is a conservative republican...you probably also agree with Bush`s wiretapping law. I would guess that the principal is also a republican. Republicans are always trying to control peoples lives and sexuality as well as pry into people`s private lives. The parents do have rights but the kids have rights also. They have the right to come out to their parents at a time and place that is appropriate to them. Outing a gay teen before they are ready can have long term effects, both physical and psychological. She not only outed them to their parents but to the entire school, which means these kids will be teased, tormented and possibly physical harmed. If this principal called and outed one of my kids I would tell her "thank you for calling me but my child`s sexuality is none of your business". I would talk to my child and apologize to them about be outed in that fashion and make sure that they are they are protected.

    I would not love my child any less if they were gay. I would make sure that they are ready to walk down that path because gay people are still persecuted and treated like second class citizens to this day. No I am not gay, I am married with 7 children. I believe that who a person loves is their business, not mine or the governments.

    DrewK: I speak as a parent and it was WRONG so dont take the high and mighty route! Outing someone like this is wrong. She could have just said "involved in inappropriate activity with another student" in the letter to parents...but it`s obvious the Principle didnt even talk to the kids first...and again, you have no idea what she defined as "sexual activity".
    ---------------------------------------------------
    LillianDulci:You are a Christian. Do you wear a chastity ring? See..I can make random assumptions to. It probably was just kissing...and I stand by my first statement. She should have talked to the students first. If she`s so outraged by normal biological behaviour (something that does infact seem to upset many Americans, specifically christian conservative americans)then she`s repressed. And your being illogical by instantly thinking the worse and assuming they where having sex. Sex - Sexual Activity. See the diffrence?

    i dont think she had a right to do that.
    a persons sexuality is their own business, and the school shouldnt be calling their parents and telling them. its not their place. At my school people are making out in the halls, and no one cares, cause its not a big deal.
    i agree witht eh warning that someone mentioned.
    i doubt that it was that bad that they had to resort to calling the kids parents.

    DrewK, for claiming to be a parent, you`re acting very much like a child. You`ve shown only one point of view and a stubborn refusal to admit there might be another side to the issue. The fact is, that principal -did- invade those students privacy - it was way beyond her boundaries as a professional educator to release very personal information without the students permission. If the campus was overrun with inappropriate sexual activity, it`s her job to stop it - not to call the parents, tattle on her students, and wait for the parents to take care of the problem.

    You really have to understand not all parents are like you, and not all parents would be too happy to know their kid is gay, at all. It could just lead to the kid being hurt.

    and plus kids have rights, when kids go to the doctor, they have rights
    doctors cant tell parents about pregnancies or anything like that
    kids are still people, to some degree they have rights

    DrewK:I am a FREAKING parent ffs. Read what I`m saying. Yes..parents do have a right but this crosses the line. Do we know EXACTLY what the kids where doing? No. Sexual activity can be defined as kissing. Is kissing someone such a big deal. NO.
    If they where having sex (which I doubt) then thats diffrent. Also your definition of minor is going to be diffrent from mine. If these kids (as per our law in the UK) are over 16, which I belive them to be, then they dont have to tell anyone anything. Remember, sex in a public place is classed as an illegal offense, thus the police would have been involved. They where not, therefore as I said, I do not belive it was anything other than kissing.

    It`s up to the kids to tell their parents who they date, not the school. If it`s something else, fine..it`s a diffrent matter. this is CLEARLY not the case here.

    Reporter: "Members of the gay community..."

    So now homosexuality is a group? Stupid woman. She probably looks at it as a `lifestyle`.

    I agree with the Principal, as long as she didn`t list the couple names TOGETHER as many gay children don`t want parents to know or get suspicious (because many are religious conservatives who are close minded fools).

    DrewK. I am someones kid. I have a right to privacy. There are so many laws making sure I have a right to god damn privacy. I feel extremely bad for your kids. If I was outed to my mom (well if I was gay and outed to my mom) without being ready...I`d be scared. Scared to the point that it would effect my social life, private life, and even my school work. Especially my school work. "what will my mom think?" "what will my dad think?" "what will the rest of my family think?". Obviously if a child is keeping their sexual orientation from their parents, it`s for a reason. They do not feel comfortable enough with their parents to share why they love someone of the same sex, and it`s probably because they think their parents will freak out. Sadly, a lot of the time it`s true.
    If the kid wants their parents to know, their parents will know. Yes. I understand if there was sexual activity at the school that the parents should be notified but not in a way that co

I wonder what you would do if one of your kids came to you when they were a young adult and told you they were gay...you would probably beat them and kick them out...like I said I pity your kids.

    Ok, I don`t thin that a principal has ANY right to tell parents about any relationship. Be it gay or striaght. If the kids want to tell their parents about their relationship, it`s THEIR choice, not a school`s. The principal should be fired and never be able to be a principal again.

    When I first saw this story on Tuesday, there was no referrence to any kind of previous sexual activity, Only public displays of affection. The principal made it a point to speak to teachers AND students to find out who was RUMORED to be dating each other. She kept this list (arrainged by paired students) in full view hanging next to her desk and any student or teacher who walked in could easily see it.
    Another thing this video failed to mention was that not only did she out the student to his mother, according to the Mother, the principal said things like “Did you know your son is gay?” repeatedly and went on to say that she didn’t like gay people and wouldn’t tolerate homosexuality at her school. - That`s the real reason the LGBT rights groups are up in arms - Blatant discrimination.

    I think this really depends on the truthfulness of the story, though. If the campus really was overrun with sexual activity (more than just kissing), and the principal did provide sufficient warning, then calling home about it may have been the only way to put a stop to it. However, if the story is indeed that she based this on rumours without approaching students at all, then this woman is just obnoxious and SHOULD be sued for all she`s got.

    Either way, though, it was really unnecessary to specify the sexual orientation or identity of who the students were `misbehaving` with. >.<

    What the principal did was downright unethical. If she were to call and say "Your child is in a relationship and is engaging in explicit acts in public" that would have been fine, but outing anyone is wrong.

    Coming out is a monumental moment in a gay person`s life, and it is there right to choose how and when they wish to do it. The principal has no right to do it for them.

    What IS IT with school administrators lately? This crap, the girl getting suspended for bringing a hammer. Good grief, if this keeps up I`ll hire a tutor for my kids. This is getting way past idiotic. I think they did cross a line here. The school knows it too, otherwise they wouldn`t have had security keeping the reporters away from the students. If they didn`t have anything to hide, they wouldn`t try to keep it out of the public reports and have lawyers speaking for them.

    It`s always amusing to watch these threads. There`s almost always some person claiming "I`m betting it was this group of people. This group of people always is X and is horrible because of it, no exceptions. Thankfully the opposite group isn`t able to be held by stereotypes and we have more exceptions than a rule." Nope.. not hypocritical at all. Of course the other side fires back with the same exact rhetoric... anyone ever think that maybe the principle is just.. dumb? Doesn`t have to be religion or politics or anything. So many people cry foul and yell stereotype and would be offended if the same thing were done to them.

    I thought the same thing, she didn`t specify anyones sexual orientation..but if the list is in couples something tells me the parents would figure out that way. No? Also DrewK you`re a moron. I feel sorry for you`re kids if you are not even open about this video that you (we all) know little to nothing about, i can`t even imagine how you react when your kid tells you something.

    According to the news anchor, the principal listed students "both straight and gay"

    Well McFly, what other students would be listed, besides bisexual ones?

    The media uses choice wording to imply that the teacher specifically listed each student in one category or the other, without actually saying that. Likely what took place is that the principal made her rounds and this conversation took place with one parent -

    Principal - Hi - your son was found having sex in our school
    Mother - Oh? With who?
    Principal - Let me see... ah yes, Bob Smith

    Mother - So my son is GAAYYY?!!!!?11!!!1!?!
    Principal - Yup, looks like it

    Then when confronted about it the bastard son says to himself "OMFG now they know I`m gay, I should sue somebody"

    You can bet the people bringing the case to court have their spindoctors, PR reps, lawyers, etc doing their speaking for them, and you can sure as hell bet that anything you say will be taken out of context by them unless it is professionally worded.

    Victor, that`s not how the conversation went. The kids themselves were never reprimanded for any kind of sexual activity, and were never even accused of any. The principal made it her business to make it very clear to one of the mothers that her child was queer and that the Principal did not approve of that. There was no sexual actiity involved in this case. The Principal heard from a student that the two boys were DATING and then took it upon herself to harrass the student by revealing it to his parent. Dangerous and unethical.

It`s all over the gay blogosophere and other local stations and newspapers covered the issue. There`s more info to this story than that news report is telling.

    D*mn. This is not funny. This is just tragic. That a woman can not only feel that it is okay for herself to spill such personal and emotional information with parents against the students will. If they were having sex in public, then notification that they were doing so should be allowed. But I sincerly doubt that. And then it gets worse. Not only does this woman think her actions are justified, but the entire acedemic community stands up to defend her behavior. To the point that students aren`t even allowed to calmly and peacefully give their opinion to a news crew not doing more than asking questions. This is what our world will come to if people like this (and DrewK) take over the world. Homosexulity is treated with such scorn by so many, and the fact these students did`t want their parents to know their own parents sexual preference prooves it. What if one of those parents threatened to disown their child? So many do. It`s a difficult thing to face without such reprehesible action.

    Jadesy, I bring religion into it because it`s clearly her motivation--her homophobic, discriminating religion made her feel justified in this blatant, unethical, chicken-poo abuse.

    I mean, why else out these students? Why in the world would she inform anyone that X person is seeing Y person. If she has a problem with rule breaking, and needs to report that problem to parents like DrewK, then she can and should. But, does she need to list the partner? Does the parent of one child have a right to know the name of the other child? In other words, does DrewK have the right to know if his son is having sex with mine? No! That`s invasion of MY privacy, and my son`s. And that bitch knows it!

    So, see, it works both ways. Parents and kids do have rights and those rights extend to parents of the partners, too.

    You`re right - I called him a bastard son, if in fact it went down like I think it did. Does that necessarily make me homophobic?

    It is the typical bastard attitude in this country that is exemplified here - "my principal is a gay basher and is out to get me omg wtf do I do" with little basis to go by.

    Maybe if the bastard son just went to class and didn`t spend his time engaging in activities against school rules, he wouldn`t be in this predicament.

    How do we know the accused were just kissing? And if they were just kissing, and kissing is against school rules, how do we know that they were necessarily "outed" as opposed to just being identified in couples, with no malicious intent?

    Victor, I`ve already TOLD YOU. They weren`t actually accused of ANYTHING. The teacher just made a list of all the kids who were dating so she could personally keep an eye on them to prevent any kind of PDA. She ONLY called the gay kid`s parents, and as i`ve already said, she INTENTIONALLY said to the one mother that SHE (the principal) does not approve of it and would not tolerate homosexuality at her school. There`s more to this story than this one news program is telling us.

    "...the boys had never been observed by any school staff engaging in any sort of display of affection, the principal called Nicholas’s mother Nichole."
    "According to Nichole, the principal said things like “Did you know your son is gay?” repeatedly and went on to say that she didn’t like gay people and wouldn’t tolerate homosexuality at her school."
    "According to Nicholas, he also suffered another consequence of the principal’s discrimination. He had submitted extensive paperwork and several recommendations from teachers for a school trip to New Orleans to assist in rebuilding efforts.
    Having a long history of community service, he was considered a shoo-in to be selected to go before the incident, but then a teacher told Nicholas some faculty were afraid he might “embarrass the school̶

    Well, there`s only one parent interviewed according to this article. Supposing that her quotes, and the ACLU`s are legitly depicted here, the evidence is lacking. You`re going entirely by what the plaintiffs claim took place, with total disregard for the defendants side. You seem to have a good deal of bias towards their side for whatever reason, without considering that they could just be making a frivolous lawsuit.

    He`s claiming that there is evidence, not me. I`m not the one making the claim. The burden is on him to provide it if he`s going to say it exists. This seems lost on you. That is understandable... I don`t expect much from a female aged 13-17.

    OMG HE DIDNT JUST SAY THAT

    Ok...I`m done arguing with Victor, he`s clearly biased towards the OTHER side of the argument. One should never argue with an idiot...people might not be able to tell the difference.

    I do find it strange though that there is no referrence that this Principal made calls to OTHER students on this list. Even calling a straight student`s parents to inform them of someone they were dating is not the job of a school official. That would be an invasion of privacy as well. Until she actualy catches someone who was doing something innapropriate, she had no right to call parents. And she did not say, and the school officials did not say, that this gay couple was actualy accused of doing anything. They were not caught in any act of PDA, otherwise there would have other actions taken besides calling parents (suspension, detention, etc.). She had no reason to call ANY of the parents of kids on that list until they were caught...which no one was.

    If the statements in the abc report are not true, then the ACLU and Sun are likely to get very quickly counter-sued.

    `the principal requested over the school intercom system that all the teachers and staff provide her with the names of students who were a couple, "hetero or homo."`

    `according to the ACLU, the list was not as confidential as the school district claims, but rather posted in full view of those who entered the principal`s office`.

    The potential witnesses for those incidents would be everyone in the school at the time, and anyone entering the principal`s office (resp.).

    If you don`t trust the media, simply wait for a few days and see if ACLU is sued for libel.
    As a sidepoint, stereotyping female teenagers does not help your argument.

    does anyone else think that the newspeople were horrible at their jobs??

    and yeah that lady was out of line for outing ANY school relationships. It would have been ok if she had jsut said your son/daughter has been seen with indecent PDA`s at school. That would`ve been great cuz NO ONE wants to see that. But posting a list for the world to see with both members of the relationship is way overboard. If it`s not illegal it`s at least unethical adn they should question whether or not to keep her around. From what I can tell she didn`t even talk woth the students first.
    Huge fail on her part.

    And I hope the people who actually contributed to her list are announced as well. No one wants to be around someone they can`t trust.

    What total bull. That principal stepped over a HUGE line. There is no reason at all that she should have talked to the kids` parents without first confronting the students involved. That is ridiculous.

    And I bet the only "public sexual activity" was making out or a grope or something. That is certainly no reason to call a parent.

    okay...time to step into the arguement, Victor, DrewK and LillianDulci, the point is what the principle did is wrong, morally, socially and even legally wrong, now that your informed, please remove yourselves.
    Privacy laws do exist though theyre often ignored and violated thanks to the corporate control and surveillance society we´ve allowed for some foolish reason to come into power.

    If the students were breaking rules on campus, it is well within their right to call the parents. Whether that is morally right, is a different issue... some rules are meant to be bent a little. It`s just that I could easily see this being stretched out by the kids who were "outed" and their parents could be inclined to make a mountain out of an anthill in hopes of a settlement. It`s all speculation and the media always wants us to believe the most outrageous possibilities. Chances are, this is just another instance of that... with a small possibility that the principal is really that stupid. Then he/she becomes the 2nd dumbest ever. No principal will ever top the one that suspended a kid for smelling markers.

    What bullcrsp. What typical, conservative American Christian bullcrap.

    The principal is definitily a Super Christian or a homophob.

    It`s there choice! So unless you see them doing it in a hallway or bathroom...IT"S NONE OF YOUR BUISSNESS!

    And Drewk is an ass.

    "And I bet the only "public sexual activity" was making out or a grope or something."

    But, you don`t know, do you? Like everyone else in this thread, you are convinced by a single media clip that the principal is just come crazy anti-gay loony bin with no regard for job security, while totally disregarding the possibility that the media took items out of context, again. Not many of you like to think for yourselves, do you? Much easier to just blindly go along with groupthink than to put stress on your pot-ridden brains, I know.

    Surely if these kids had actualy been caught doing anything, the school would have put that in their statement in an attempt to defend themselves. But they didn`t.

    So Victor, aren`t you just blindly going along with the story that the school is trying to defend themselves with?

    Victor_Watts. Go look up the definition of "sexual activity". It ranges from kissing to outright sex.
    Without sounding horribly crude, I could say you engaged in sexual activity with your own parents.
    It would be true, if I was making a play on words. Whilst I do think you`ve kissed your parents at some point, I dont for one second think you`ve done anything else.

    The school and media are twisting it all out of proportion. Just think about that before you post anything else!


    "Sexual activity" is a phrase often used by the media when they only know enough to say something is going on. Kissing is not sex. The school is wrong, you are wrong and the courts will finnish this one!

    I`m aware that a large array of advances can be construed as sexual behavior. Why do you people think that it HAD to be just kissing? Did you not attend a high school where kids were caught having sex? If so then I`m curious - how small was this school you attended?

    No Victor, the video says there had been prior complains of some sexual activity by students. They did not say which students and stated clearly that the complains about the activity was the reason for the principal making the list in the first place. They did NOT say it was the reason for calling the parents.

    There are 2500 people at mine, people make out, and they have sex at home if they do it anyways.

    And sadly the so-called Free USA is a conservative, one sided, Christian, country longing to brainwash and take control.

    Furthermore, their authorities are terrible and they are either moderately racist or very racist. Very few are more open-minded.

    Ok. I`m gonna answer Victor_Watts question as to why I think it was only kissing and not something else.

    Both US and English law is similar here.
    Engaging in a public sex act, which includes exposure, masturbation, oral and intercourse, is illegal. It would be the principles duty to report this to the police. If she didnt, she would be failing in her position.

    That didnt happen. You lose Victor_Watts.

    my old school had over 3000, making out, kissing, groping and the occasional quickie in bathrooms or the abandoned staircase where common occurance, then again, this is germany, where its legal to walk around naked on the street if you feel like it. I take it where victor is from they put little socks on the legs of chairs and tables still even.

    Well, obviously they didn`t call their parents to discuss grades. It`d be interesting if students really did complain about sexual behavior - one would imagine that it is atypical of a student to complain about witnessing "just kissing".

    You know what though, the media and the principal were very harsh to the gays. There’s still the matter of the straight kids. There’s still the privacy issue.

    But then, this is mostly about the gays being picked on.

    Therefore, I shall redirect it back.

    1) They had no evidence
    2) They had no right
    3) They were invading their privacy

    Gays are people to you know. And technically, they sort of proved that an excess of estrogen in men and testosterone in women make them more attracted too their own sex…word of mouth from my dad. It doesn’t really prove anything though.

    But maybe it cannot be helped; I think that’s what I want to say.

    "Engaging in a public sex act, which includes exposure, masturbation, oral and intercourse, is illegal. It would be the principles duty to report this to the police. If she didnt, she would be failing in her position."

    She may very well have failed to thwart the sexual activity until it got out of hand, thinking that the instances wouldn`t repeat themselves enough to make an issue out of it - after all, no school wants to portray a bad image.

    Even IF the school caught kids doing "sexual" activities that are really inappropriate, victor, she still didn`t NEED to tell the names of the other student. If a student gets in trouble at school for flooding a toilet or something like that, even if he had friends with him that were involved, the principal still doesn`t say, "your son broke the rules and is in trouble for inappropriate behavior. Now, here are the names of the OTHER students that were also involved."
    That doesn`t happen. If a teen WAS involved in inappropriate sexual activity, they would call the parents and tell them that THEIR student is in trouble for inappropriate sexual activity. Why say who the other student was? That`s not for the parents of another kid to know. You`re not supposed to give information about the discipline of OTHER students to parents.

    Notice how no one cares about the fact that the principal also notified parents about the straight student`s relationships as well? Does anyone care about them? Nope. But, oh no, a 15-year-old gay kids rights got violated because his principal called his mother and told her what her son was up to.

    JJ-

    You may be right. Where I tend to think this is BS lies in the inclination that the principal was out to intentionally target gays, when in fact her sole intention was just to let parents know what was going on, and in the process she felt obligated to give out both names in order to substantiate the allegation, without considering so much whether it was amoral to do so. I just find it more plausible that the principal was caught in the middle due to perhaps not following standard procedure quite like she should have, rather than assume she had malicious intent and say "OMFG SHE HATES GAYZ AND SHE OUTED THEM, PHUCK DAT B1TCH LETS SUE"

    "Why do all you kids keep saying "invasion of privacy" and crap like thta? THEY ARE FREAKIN minors their parents HAVE THE RIGHTS not them."

    Our legal system would and has disagreed with you. Children have the same civil rights has any adult.

    At any rate, if there were children engaging in inappropriate activites, THEY should have been punished. I have a suspicion this was done with the INTENT of outing the gay students.

    Victor:

    Kids at my school had sex in the bathrooms. Do you think this principal would consider that "public view"? Or how about prom, we had some of those.

    Generally, American news is pretty biased against homosexuality- this leads me to give credibility to the news for taking their side. In my opinion, most news sources would not take such a liberal side unless it was legitimate.

    But then again, maybe the moon landing was faked. Tell me, Victor, how do you know what to believe? I`m pretty sure you, like the rest of us, combine information from various sources... Then draw your own conclusions.

    Why do I need the press? Evidence? When I can just rely on gut intuition and stubborn dogma and then claim that everyone *else* needs the evidence to prove me wrong.

    Oh and everyone`s elses evidence is clearly bs; unlike my own gut feelings and my own dogma.

    No, no, no, no, NO! You do NOT out kids before they`re ready!! and in high school, when most, if not all, of them still live with their parents?

    I wanna know how many kids have been thrown out of their parents lives` because of this. It happens more often than you think. And if the rest of the kids at school find out?

    Coming out is dangerous sometimes and I hope that principal understands that.

    This is crazy, she did nothing wrong. If she had called the parents and said the following "He Mr. and Mrs. Blah, you`re child is a homosexual -hang up-", then yes, she would be in the wrong. What happened is she called the parents of all dating students and made them aware of that. Parents should know those things. It is extremely wrong for teenagers to hide relationships from their parents. I think the principal did a good thing.

    As an aside i went to a catholic high school. When our principle found out about a senior who was gay he wanted to expel him! Thankfully one of the faculty had the guts to stand up to him and that bozo never had his way. Culture is changing, but at an agonizingly slow pace.

    If as a parent you don`t know what`s going on with your kid, that`s something for you to solve between yourself and your kid.

    The school has no right to across the board accuse students in a couple of "inappropriate public sexual activity."

    As a result of poor planning, some students who weren`t ready to come out to their parents for whatever reason now have to cope with EVERYONE knowing; that`s emotionally traumatizing even if the news is well-recieved.

    aamelron- this has become a gay issue because people who are gay face persecution that straight people never will.

    wow, that really isn`t right in my eyes. okay, i`m not saying kids should hide their relationships from their parents, but their parents don`t HAVE to know. like if my mom asks me if someone`s my boyfriend or what i`m not going to lie to her, i just don`t feel comfortable talking to her about it. i`m sure a lot of people feel that way and i don`t think it`s right for the principal to invade people`s lives like that. her job is to keep kids in line, if they were showing too much pda then she should have confronted them about it.

    @The Maddog

    I`m taking a wild guess that you are anti-American. Am I right? We are a relatively young country, the UK and the rest of Europe have had time to develop culturally and socially. I`ve seen videos of the sort of racism happening in the UK. For example some of the black football(soccer) players being called "monkeys" consistently.

    Bottom Line:

    I don`t care if you bash all the gay haters and racists/fascists or whatever else, but calling a country repressed really isn`t a necessary comment. Just keep it to yourself. We as Americans don`t like it. And I`m sure you wouldn`t like it if someone bashed England or the UK as a whole.

    Just asking for a little of respect. You certainly don`t have to praise the U.S, just don`t make derogatory or unnecessary comments about the U.S

    I think this could have probably been avoided if the principal had just left out the identity of the student`s partner, be they straight or gay. It`s not hard to say "we caught your son/daughter doing "inappropriate" acts with another student." That would have respected the student`s privacy (which they are entitled to), while informing the parents that something was going on that was against school policy (which THEY are entitled to). So yes, I expect that principal to have her ass handed to her.

    "This isn`t a gay issue at all, and I hate that their marketing it as such. I am also ashamed of i-am-bored for allowing this title. Watch the video, it says both GAY AND STRAIGHT couples were outed. I`m sorry, but this principal wasn`t out to get gays, she was out to get teenagers."

    So because Hitler killed the Jews, and other groups, he wasn`t an Anti-Semite?

    Oh wait...

    Smag. I agree with you on the invasion of privacy thing. But I don`t see anywhere where her religion is the case in any of this. No. It is not obviously why she did it. Like I said before, perhaps she`s just stupid and didn`t think of what she was doing. Or maybe she just doesn`t like gays. She doesn`t have to be religious to not like gays. And I`m not defending religion. Religion is poopy (IMO). Causes too many wars and fights, and makes close mindedness happen. But I also know religion isn`t bad all the time, which is why I`m trying to figure out why you`re bringing it up when it wasn`t even mentioned in the video (I don`t think it was at least, it`s been a while since I`ve watched it and I forget things). And not only did you bring it up, you seemed to attack it which sort of says to me that you just want any excuse to attack religion. Idk. Prolly wrong, but I`m just tellin ya what I saw D:

    "Thats so fking wrong. By "sexual activity" I`m guessing they mean kissing. What a repressed country!

    It was still a huge invasion of privacy. She didnt have to "out" anyone. She should have talked to the students first, then said if it continues she will contact their parents. Wrong wrong worng on so many levels!"

    Asking teachers to become informants and then monitor the named students for days. Then she used the information to intimidate those students.

    The gay couple did Not, according to the principal herself, engage in public displays of affection.

    I feel sorry for DrewK`s kids. They have a freaking moron for a dad.

    Everyone has a right to privacy.

    DrewK: It is the responsibility for the parents to take care of the problem. They first need to know about the problem.

    how is this a problem. it`s just making out/sex. either way it doesn`t matter. kids do what they do. a problem would be doing drugs or maybe bringing weapons into the school, but this is normal everyday things that all teenagers do. get over it.

    privacy or not, it doesnt matter. the facts are this. the case will lose due to a few things.

    1. THEY ARE MINORS. what they are doing is not allowed by law, just because most schools turn a blind eye, it doesn`t make it right.

    2. It is not discrimination, as she called the straight kids as well.

    3. Your going to a PUBLIC school, meaning anything you do there is on their grounds, so they choose the rules, you do not have to go there, you can go to private or homeschool. If your there, your under their rules, including this.

    4. If your so worried about parents finding out, then don`t make it public knowledge. Straight (no pun intended) and simple.

    and in Judaism, when somebody talks to the rabbi (like the priest who runs the service in the temple (church)) the rabbi is NOT supposed to tell anybody about the conversation. it is classified to everybody else. so did they have sex or just hooking up? because if they had sex then that is illegal but they can hookup cant they?

    Public school is a joke. You should see what happens when you act out of line in private school! The least that would happen is a call to your parents. The school and your parents own your ass until you are 18. In some countries 16. Get used to it.

    Parents have no right to know.

    Just because you have birthed and raised someone doesn`t give you a handle on thier life. Once they get to a certain age children have thier own needs wants and desires. They aren`t the concern of the parent. A parents job is to look after a child, not dictate to them. Your children are not you, they don`t have to share you life view and the sooner people learn this the sooner we can all move on.

    Alot of the arguments (for and against) this storry can be quelled by viewing the news articles provided from Rebel and Turnshroud earlier in the thread.

    1.) There were other couples included in this but only one child, Nicholas who was homosexual, had his parents alerted.
    2.)This particular student had never previously been accused of sexual misconduct.
    3.)There was no actual sexual misconduct in question for Nicholas. He was simply gay.
    4.) The conversation did not just include information such as "Your child has been acting inappropriately in school", specific language such as "Did you know your son was gay?" was used instead.

    There is also other intriguing information such as the teacher interrupting class via intercom demanding she be alerted of any "hetero or homo" couples.

    Outrageous actions. And for anyone who wants to know, the highschool I attended had 3,000+ students and the worse we`ve ever had was a boy expelled for masturbating

    in class. Nothing ever as lewd as out right sex. My higschool was not in the middle of nowhere, either. The school was 5 minutes away from Daytona Beach, FL and an hour away from Orlando, Fl.


    The diction of the list alone shows her stance on homosexuality. By making a distinction between homosexual couples and any other type of couple shows her prejudice.

    Here are links to the articles I was referencing:
    ABC News Report
    NBC news report via WOAI news

    I agree with whomever said kids DO NOT have a right to privacy. They are MINORS PEOPLE!! Sure I absolutely hated this but when I became an adult I realized it is absolutely necessary for adults to be in complete control of their children until they are 18. If a parent say`s "No son, don`t be gay." that kid should do as his parents say. If not they get an ass whuppin. I was a bad ass kid and if my parents didn`t beat my ass for doing bad poo and constantly spying on me I would totally be in prison or dead.

    seriously. what is up with all you people (Tdogg111, soro, thursdaylark) saying "i don`t think this is right," or "i think kids should have privacy in this area?" it doesn`t matter what you think - the law is what matters, and quite simply, the law strips minors of a variety of their rights as soon as they walk onto a highschool campus. you think if the school can tell you what clothes to wear, control your every movement in the school, even search all your belongings (including your car out in the parking lot), that they can`t tell your parents if you`re engaging in sexual activity (whether sex or not)?

    I think the principal`s intentions were good, but she went about it like a drating idiot. SHe obviously has no idea how difficult it can be, being homosexual and having your friends and family not know about it. Personally, I`m not gay, but I know many people who are, one of them being my own mother. Since my mom`s homosexuality is not something I keep secret, a fair amount of people from school have come to me for advice. It can tear someone up inside, wondering what all their friends and family will think. So when somebody outs you to your parents, that`s drated up.

    As much as it galls me to have to say this, Minors really don`t have many rights at all legally. They don`t even have a right to own property. Many parents allow them a great deal of latitude, but much as in the case of a parent reading a diary, or checking the child`s browser cache, or even just viewing their myspace or facebook, there is no legal gaurantee of privacy for a minor from their parents. I just hope that this leads more families to discuss important issues with their children. (and by the way, anyone who thinks that all High School students do is kiss... you`re very naive)

    I don`t know... if I *were* a parent, I would want to know what`s up. However, it`s not the schools place. ONCE AGAIN, if the parents are so concerned with what their child is doing, simply "ask". Talk to your kids, form a relationship. They want to tell you because they love you, and that`s probably why their so worried in the first place. Disappointment from your loved ones is a hard pill to swallow.

    The school is in the major wrong for exploiting the minors like that. It`s not their job, it`s not what their there for.

    This is insane... My shpeal on the issue: IF (and ONLY IF) the kids had been clearly found having sex in public (which is illegal), THEN the principal should have reprimended the kids FIRST, informed the police, and FINALLY called the parents. However, this was CLEARLY NOT the way things happened, and, therefore, the principal should be reprimended. IF she had followed these exact steps in this order, THEN I would maybe possibly be ok with it, depending on certain variables (like the guy`s feelings about getting outed to his mom)

    Een if it was an issue, things should have been carried out differently.
    1. Why the heck would you make a list of couples? The dating scene in high school is always changing. Making a list of couples-at-the-moment seems pointless to me. So, first of all, that list shouldn`t have been been created.
    2. Why on earth would you share that information (the specific names of the couples) with parents instead of just sending all the parents letters saying that there is a problem at the school with public sexual behavior so they should speak with their kids about it?
    3. There was no thought about the effects of this on the principal`s part, clearly. Not just in terms of homosexual couples, but for heterosexual couples as well. I know plenty of people in high school who dated and their families never knew for different reasons (some parents were racist/ disapproving)

    Keith...Are you...-serious-..."No son, don`t be gay"?....I`m sorry but I lol`d. A lot. And then I felt sorry for you, and if you have any children, I feel sorry for them. You say it like as soon as the father says "No son, don`t be gay." to his kid, the kid will just go "WAY`LL SURE THING POPS, I`LL START LOOKING AT YOUR ISSUES OF PLAYBOY IN A JIFFY RIGHT HERE, JUST LET ME BREAK UP WITH MAH BOYFRIEND!" If you meant something different, I apologize, but that`s really how it seemed... o_o I mean it`s totally different to say "No, don`t have sex in school" and not "No son, don`t be gay."...I just cannot get over that. "No son, don`t be gay."

    togetec. I guess your still dealing with your sexuality. Dont worry, when you do decide to come out of the closet, no one here will judge you.

    This is stupid... everyone cares so much about this whole gay issue. The truth is in Memphis that fourth graders have sex at school; four adults and two children were murdered at one time and the killer might get off; race hatred is so violent that schools are being made to bus black kids away from the suburb school and private schools charge $20,000 to save white kids from the harsh world. But HEY all that`s fine because one principal outed students. Nevermind that worse happens... a girl was run off from my school because she was a lesbian and moved towns. This is by FAR not the worst and people need to calm down. Peace!

    that is so wrong. People shouldn`t be forcefully outed, when they want to tell people their sexuality, then they can. Other people shouldn`t do it for them.
