I think that this news story is noth­ing more than the words of an ig­no­rant, pred­ju­diced white man. To ex­clude any com­mu­nity... from his­tory is an ut­ter out­rage. We as a com­mu­nity do not wish to push any agenda on you, we do not wish to re­cruit you. We wish to live our lives in a world of ac­cep­tance, and not a world filled with hate. The only way that the ha­tred that this com­mu­nity of­ten faces will end is through ed­u­ca­tion. We are not the scary mon­sters that many make the gay, les­bian, bi­sex­ual, and trans­gen­der com­mu­nity out to be. We are peo­ple who live in small towns, we are teach­ers and we are nurses. All we want to do is live our lives, and to be ac­knowl­edged as con­tribut­ing cit­i­zens to the his­tory, present, and fu­ture of this nation..
