    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    with that I agree. I just don't see why, other than it is the current flavor of the day, gay teens should be singled out for special protection

    Well, in this instance, a discussion of bullying isn't really cogent to the thread, since I don't believe that's what happened in this instance.

    The only thing I'll say is that, as a parent, I would NOT rely on the school to protect my child. I'm not sure that any of our attempts to address bullying have been particularly effective. However, there is a thread on this topic in the off topic section.

    Yeah, I got some workable solutions but I don't think you would like them very much.

    I think we should recognize that being gay/lesbian can be a basis for harassment, just like other factors that come into play. I don't think we should bury our heads in the sand and say it never occurs, because clearly it does, in most schools. I'm just saying that in the context of high school, being gay or lesbian is just another thing to get harassed about.

    My niece has huge breasts. Don't even get me started on the harassment she deals with daily at school.

    My workable solution was to enroll my son in a wrestling club and talk to him about the appropriate circumstances and strategies for punching a bully right in the face.

    It worked.

    That is a workable solution, too. My first move would be to eliminate "zero tolerance" policies across the board and put the onus on the adults around to actually make decisions like adults. Secondly, bullies caught bullying would be subject to automatic out of school suspensions. Finally, stop coddling all the other kids and let them be kids. You put kids in a group and they are going to have physical conflicts, especially the boys. It's just part of being kids.

    In my experience, this is extremely redundant.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
