    The LGTBQ+ Discussion Thread

    I have no issue with the concept of "private". What I question is the ability of a child to "freely . . . choose to engage with such institutions".

    It was the context in which it was brought up. Not all of us know that context, but some of us do. I don’t think it should be discussed further, as it touches on another forum member’s personal history. There’s nothing objectionable about the story itself.

    These are powerful words that I agree with entirely. My objection was only to the implicit reference to someone’s personal history.

    Being gay is not a choice. Thousands upon thousands of gay people have been abused, hurt, and murdered for being who they are. Try as I might before I came out, I was never able to hide the fact I was gay, and I know the same is true of many other gay people whose sexuality is woven into their...

    What a dreadful man and awful father. https://amp.lbc.co.uk/news/thomas-markle-meghan-prince-harry-hrh/

    That’s not what I’m saying. My point is that some of the commentary (I’m not saying yours) is treating her as a reprobate who is wilfully contravening the rules that she herself signed up to, rather than as a child whose own agency in joining such a school was limited at best.

    I know! I was just providing some additional context.

    Among denominations that can be labelled “traditional” (at least liturgically), the Episcopal Church is a notable exception (I’m sure there are others).

    Thanks for your response. I agree with the first two paragraphs and don’t want to speculate regarding the rest.

    This echoes my stance. I‘m not questioning the school’s legal right to expel her, but that doesn’t mean I think their policies are ethical. Ultimately, however, I do believe the expulsion will prove best for Kayla, though I worry how it will impact those LGBTQI children who remain at the school.

    Others may disagree, but in most cases, I don’t believe that a child’s choice of school can be viewed as only or even mainly their own—particularly when the school in question is private.

    Oh, I’m sure he acted according to procedure, but a little bit of reassurance and explanation would have been no bad thing, even if it wasn’t technically required of him.

    One thing that’s getting lost in this discussion is that Kayla, as a child, cannot be said to have chosen to live under those rules.

    Assuming your guess is right (and it seems convincing to me!), I wish the officer had explained that clearly before asking for identification.

    Indeed, but I suspect Kayla will be much happier and healthier in a less intolerant school. The posted article treats her behavioural issues (such as they are) as the source of the problem, whereas I view them as the outcome of being an LGBTQI kid in an environment that treats your “lifestyle”...

    I don’t get why the policeman asked to see the licence of the guy who’d been at the receiving end of the woman’s racism.

    You've already told me I'm annoying and on your ignore list. I suggest you follow through this time and actually keep me there, as I can see that fruitful dialogue between us is impossible.

    That isn't what I said. The two points I have made in the course of this discussion are as follows: 1. Jewishness is not synonymous with Judaism. There is an ethnic dimension to Jewish identity that goes beyond the religious. 2. The executive order under discussion implicitly frames...

    I wasn't arguing. That's your misperception.
