    Arkansas school board says fags should kill themselves

    While schools across the country are taking action against bullying and suicide, a board member of an Arkansas school district is using his Facebook page to encourage "queers" and "fags" to kill themselves.

    Clint McCance is a board member in the Midland school district in western Arkansas. Responding to a call to wear purple last Wednesday to support LGBT youth, McCance wrote the following message on his Facebook page: "Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers killed themselves. The only way im wearin it for them is if they all commit suicide. I cant believe the people of this world have gotten this stupid. We are honoring the fact that they sinned and killed thereselves because of their sin. REALLY PEOPLE."

    Initially, six people "liked" McCance's message. He also received supportive comments, though some challenged his statement. A commenter wrote, "Because hatred is always right." That led McCance to write, "No because being a fag doesn't give you the right to ruin the rest of our lives. If you get easily offended by being called a fag then dont tell anyone you are a fag. Keep that **** to yourself. I dont care how people decide to live their lives. They dont bother me if they keep it to thereselves. It pisses me off though that we make a special purple fag day for them. I like that fags cant procreate. I also enjoy the fact that they often give each other aids and die. If you arent against it, you might as well be for it."

    McCance was again challenged on his statements — and his Christianity. Wrote one commenter: "YOU NEED TO STOP AND THINK FOR A SEC GREAT YOU BIG CHRISTIAN MAN ! SO KEEP ALL OF YOUR THOUGHTS TO YOUR SELF YOU DONT WANT PPL TALKIN ABOUT YOUR FAMILY SO DONT TALK BOUT OTHERS."

    McCance responded with, "I would disown my kids they were gay. They will not be welcome at my home or in my vicinity. I will absolutely run them off. Of course my kids will know better. My kids will have solid christian beliefs. See it infects everyone."

    It's not clear if McCance has taken down the thread, since his Facebook page is private — the messages were made available to The Advocate via a forwarded screen capture. The superintendent of the Midland school district was unavailable and a phone call to the principal of the Midland High School was not returned. There was no response to e-mails to the superintendent and to the secretary of the Midland school board.

    "Clint McCance has put a face on the hate that devastates our young people," says Human Rights Campaign president Joe Solmonese. "McCance shouldn't be allowed near children, let alone managing their education. We call for his immediate resignation from the school board."

    Re: Arkansas school board says fags should kill themselves

    There's a difference between the school board saying gay people should kill themselves and a person ON the school board saying gay people should kill themselves.

    I, for example, am an American. I say we should blow up the moon. The headline "America says we should blow up the moon," however, is not accurate.

    Re: Arkansas school board says fags should kill themselves

    It is my opinion that such people are a throwback to a time when Christianity suffered fewer challenges to it's authority from the sciences and other rational movements. He is a picture of what we can expect, a reminder, if we allow Christianity to go unchallenged. The impulse to cruelty is strong in the human condition. The use of religion in is furtherance sees it at it's most insidious. The only defense: the rejection of claims with no objective evidence.

    Sounds like the clash of extremists to me. On one side you have those who put more effort into sexuality classes, roleplays and pandering to weirdos than keeping educational standards up.

    And on the other you have the chap who sounds not dissimilar to Mark Collett, the ex-British National Party young group boss who claimed that AIDS is a 'friendly' disease because homosexuals contract it.

    Other pupils at the school were left confused and upset after the boy’s decision was announced in a school assembly, according to newspaper reports.

    Pupils were warned that if they refused to refer to the boy as a girl and use the new name he has adopted they would face punishment.

In fact, if the school wouldn't have made a big deal about it by having an assembly, then the students probably wouldn't have made a big deal about it. And it probably would have been a better idea to allow the parents to know about the student so that they could talk to their children about the situation, but that shouldn't change how the school would handle punishment for bullying the student. According to the article, the boy had already been wearing pigtails and acting like a girl, so the other students, at least in his class level, should be used to it. And there is no reason why a student shouldn't be allowed to live as whatever gender they want, even if they are that young, especially if they really do want to spend their life as that gender 24/7.

    It is only humiliating to those who are not comfortable when they are not fitting in or when they are outside their own gender role. The first boy (the one who is going to school as a girl) feels that he is a girl. He is completely comfortable wearing girls clothing no matter what the other children think he should be wearing. This is not really much different than any student who wears clothes that are outside the norm. Some students could be completely comfortable, and maybe even moreso, dressing up for school every day in dresses or suits w/ ties, even if the other kids tease them about it. This is what makes them feel comfortable and they have enough self esteem to not care that it isn't normal, while it should still be okay.

    I know that what I am saying is true because I have witnessed how my brother is when he is dressed as a woman. He is quite comfortable with himself, even if there are people staring at him. It really doesn't seem to bother him. He also seems to have a lot more confidence dressed as a woman than he ever had when he dressed in men's clothes, with the possible exception of being in his Army uniforms.

    The boys described in the second article are uncomfortable because they see themselves as boys and view having to wear any clothing designated as "for girls" as saying that they aren't really boys but girls. In other situations, those same boys might actually voluntarily wear girls clothing, such as for Halloween or a Powder Puff game, but the fact that this scenario is a punishment is what would make it different.

    Re: Arkansas school board says fags should kill themselves

    So what exactly is wrong with a boy dressed as a girl?
    It's weird, that's what's wrong (and I don't mean that in a hateful way). When the boy's an adult he can do as he pleases but as a kid he could do well with having somebody look at him. And his parents, probably mixed up themselves under the circumstances, probably think it kinder to indulge him.

    But he's not a girl (even boys' brains are different) and could even be open to all kinds of exploitation without supervision or being made to behave himself on the premises. (I can't find the link but I once read a news article of a paedophile facing a court hearing for having a 'relationship' with an underage gay transvestite. The boy said he loved the man but the judge still threw the book at the pervert.)

    That said, just because he's a bit warped is by no means giving bullies free licence. Irresistable temptation as it may be, bullying should be punished if the strong are to protect the weak.

    A japanese game? Relevance?

    Heaven forbid a school that has 200 students who identify as transgender installs a unisex toilet to accomodate them.

    Sexual offender? For having consensual encounters with other adults? Leave it to a Christian website to exaggerate.

    Oh the horror. If their kids missed 19 days of school they could face court action.

    Lifesitenews? You gotta be kidding.

    So how would you have handled this situation differently?


    All of these are cases of transgenderism in foreign countries. What does any of it have to do with a School Board member professing that he is happy to see gay kids die?

    That's very true. The title should read that a particular idiot, Clint McCance, said something really stupid and hateful.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Transgender people, and people who don't conform to the made up gender binary society put's on us, aren't weird, plain and simple.

    Anyways, the school board member should be relieved on his job, so the non bigots can help every student in their district.
