Huh. I wonder what they have against being anti-bullying? It can't possibly be because of some other facet of his identity that cannot be changed, right? I mean, if it were, that would probably be a violation of his rights and he might have grounds to sue.

citing his ‘lifestyle’

No attempt to even hide it, in this case.

Ehhemmm...I believe she specifically said it was his choice of lifestyle. She made her stance very clear. 😮‍💨

“It’s not discriminating against his lifestyle — that’s his choice,” Potteiger said in the meeting. “But it’s him speaking about it.”

I'm just glad this wasn't one of my local schools this time. We at least ran them out of the school boards here. This is off in the Pennsyltucky part of the state.
