Alabama Schools Teach that Being Gay is Criminal!

It IS Alabama. Don't expect anything too good from them. This kinda just proves that stereotypes about the deep South tend to be correct...

:-(( . . .

Being a Southern boy, sadly this is how many people here feel and are brought up to believe.

On a positive note I live in a revitalized neighborhood in what's considered a very desirable area.

It's also the "gay" part of the city.

There is hope for Dixie still!!!!!

I received an invite to

sign that kid's petition from, so I did....but now I am getting e-mails from them daily...annoying. But yeah, that is so screwed up. Just as bad as that teacher who said gays had no 'purpose' in life.

Not really that annoying... at least not for me

I signed as well.

And, yes, will send "issues" that might interest you... but, they're not annoyingly numerous. Many are immediately trashed; I sign maybe about 20% when I'm truly affected... and if I feel my signature stands a ghost of a chance of wielding the desired effect.

I told not to e-mail me anymore. I just don't think 94% of those petitions are of any use, it just feels good to sign them.

Also, and I've never been able to find evidence to the contrary: Is there any history of a petition ever resulting in actual change? By which I mean, just a petition.
