I wrote about DeMint and his “no homo” policy for schools yesterday, and I just learned that on the other coast, a gay teaching intern has been removed from his position at an elementary school after being honest with a student who asked his teacher why he wasn’t married.
Seth Stambaugh is 23 and finishing his Master’s degree at Lewis and Clark College. Fortunately he wasn’t fired outright, but the pearl-clutching of some parents in Beaverton, Oregon (I’m resisting the urge to pun) resulted in his removal to another school where he is safely back in the closet. Whew! Dodged that bullet, Beaverton! Way to protect your children from qualified teachers and the facts of institutionalized discrimination!
