Oh funny thing with a student today, they were talking about the origin of words like queer and gay, so one boy was like gay means happy, I’m gay we’re all gay, then he said to me I’m as gay as you, then in sync me and a couple of other students said errrrrrr probably not. Then we all just cracked up laughing.
I Wish i had a magic wand that i could use to help the students fix their problems. It’s so difficult when they’re pouring out their heart to you and crying and there’s not a lot you can do to help. So heartbreaking.
Awkward conversation with the kids today about whether it’s ok to say someones queer and because you know one person that’s not offended by being called a faggot it’s ok to call anyone whos gay a faggot. I made a wise decision to stay out of the conversation.
I’m Sure i wasn’t that rude when i was 12/13. Actually unbelievable.
