How can anyone be against this bill? I don't care if your opposed to Gay rights, the abuse of students because of their sexual orientation is WRONG. Schools need to teach that LGBT people are human as well, and that they deserve respect, and to not be singled out for abuse.

As long as boys don't wear dresses, etc there's no problem/


Gayness is a BIRTH DEFECT.

What happens when teen-aged boys come up with the idea to play the system by saying they are a woman trapped in a man's body so they can gain access to the girls bathrooms. Remember the wording is "perceived" sexual orientation. Oh, I forgot, a ruling like this would probably end up doing away with segregated bathrooms. Are all you Dad's who have daughters OK with that?

We already have laws that protect against discrimination of any sort we do not need to redefine what discrimination is.

Andrew, You are missing the whole point, it's not to protect against harrassment. It's so they can be justified to teach homosexuaility in schools to children. Don't beleave me, read the Bill. You see, it's not what they say, it's what they are not saying.

native, I read the bill. I don't see anything about teaching homosexuality.

Yes Andrew I agree with you. But what about the overweight, less attractive, awkward, poor, extremely thin, or those with blemished skin? Should't the legislature include those groups also? If no, is it unfair? If yes, where does it all end? Get my drift? And as for George, you will.

Equinehearted, you've got a good point. If we stop discriminating against students because of their sexual orientation, we might stop discriminating against them based on their weight and appearance. But what's wrong with that?
