Cruel School

I don't know if you've been following the Washington Post's series on gay youth or not. It is pretty heart-wrenching. Thanks to Ben over at Scattered Words where I saw it first. Ex-gay watch also has some examples of how bad school life can be for gay people. As a friend of mine says, "there are so many ways to get got in this world."

I'm sitting in front of our little wood stove, which is chugging out the warmth and light I need in order to wake up at 5:00 a.m. I've poured myself another cup of ambition (Dolly Parton, Nine-to-Five for those who didn't catch that reference) and am ready to head down south to my new work gig.

Gay youth do have it rough. On my campus we have a program called "Safe Zone" that simply provides space for those that need to talk, and it is open to the area youth. Some of the stories I've heard are horrible. It breaks my heart and makes me so angry sometimes at the level of bigotry still out there. People can be so hateful. There's still so much work to do.
