SPLC and NCLR are challenging the pervasive anti-gay harassment and a “gag policy” that prevents teachers from discussing issues related to LGBT people.

The Anoka-Hennepin School District is also at the center of an investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights into reports of anti-gay bullying.

The policy that this school has regarding lgbt people is basically the "Don't Say Gay" bill that is being pushed as policy for the entire state of Tennessee.

To these policy makers, I guess it's OK if lgbt teens feel unsafe in schools or commit suicide.

I don't know if you keep up with George Takei but he has really made fun of this bill in a way that is serious but also light hearted. I'll link it just incase.

I love George Takei. There is an "It's Ok to be Takei" fan page on Facebook.

I think I need that t-shirt.

This is my favorite Takei video:
