Re: “N.C. Governor's School under pressure from anti-gay group

I was a student at Governor's School West in 2005, and I attended the seminar on "The New Gay Teenager." In no way did this seminar advocate homosexuality, as was claimed by those opposed to it. It merely explained many things about homosexuality and presented some issues that gays face in today's society. I did not feel pressured to "become" gay, and no one there was telling me homosexuality was good or bad. If anyone was "turned gay" (which is a ridiculous idea), it was because they were finally comfortable enough with themselves to go public about something they've felt for a long time. The seminar's purpose was simply to increase understanding of different sexualities and encourage respect for everyone, regardless of their orientation. If Governor's School advocated any one thing, it was to look at everything from all perspectives - to judge only after every view has been considered. This seminar, just like all the other enlightening classes, lectures, films, performances, and casual discussions at Governor's School, enriched the way we look at our world. It is tragic that any person or group could seek to smother certain viewpoints, constricting the perspectives of the bright young minds that are the future of this nation.
