Anti-gay bullying lesson featured on ABC News

That's me! The first student is from Reston, I don't know him. But, I taught Eddy his freshman year, and that's my classroom, my students!! I even show up right after Eddy finishes talking... right at the 2:01 mark. I'm at the front of the room, walking backwards. Damn, I'm looking good!!

Cute little monkey

I got to see Alivia this weekend! We went to a little halloween party. She was Curious George and her daddy was the man in the yellow hat. Adorable!

18-25? Hm, interesting...



I blame it on the fact that I'm constantly surrounded by the most immature group of freshmen I've ever known. Although, it appears that the 36-50 group is a close second. I wonder what this says about me?

Is it interesting? Sure, why not? If you want to see your own analysis, go here.

Dear Mormons who agree with Boyd K. Packer,

I AM A STRAIGHT ALLY.

If that bothers you, stop reading.

Okay, so. You say that feeling an attraction to someone of the same gender is not a sin. But "choosing" to be happy, to live your life in a way that is true to you, to the very core, IS a sin. A right, by the way, that you have and hold dear.

Honestly, I think that's worse than just saying homosexuality is a sin. Because by asking a person - teen, tween, or otherwise - to DENY what you readily admit is NOT a choice - that being the person to which s/he is attracted - is to ask them to be a liar. And unhappy. And in eternal conflict.

Something with which you do not have to deal, because you are not gay. It's like asking me to deny the color of my skin, or my shoe size, or my height. Or asking you to marry and love a person of your same gender.

It's not who you are. In any way.

And THAT is why they are killing themselves.

PLEASE watch:




Love,
