Los Angeles public schools are encouraging teachers and staff to wear badges that identify them as LGBT allies and supporters of the pro-gay movement.
Superintendent John Deasy kicked off the effort Thursday, which he said was necessary to prevent gay kids from being bullied.
We want all our youth and staff to know that it is safe to be you in LAUSD, said Deasy in a statement to the Los Angeles Times.
The move is part of the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Centers Out for Safe Schools initiative.
The front sides of the badges have the word ally written on them in several different languages, which will help teachers celebrate the fabulousness of gay students, gay fellow teachers, and other gays, whose gayness automatically merits universal applause and celebration. Allies are straight supporters of gay people and gay marriage.
The reverse sides of the badges include a handy list of resources available to gays and their supporters. The list handily includes the public-sector unions United Teachers Los Angeles, SEIU, and Associated Administrators of Los Angeles, allowing L.A.s organized labor community to rejoice in the school districts salute to gayness....

IF I were a teacher there, I would demand to be shown WHERE in the bargaining contract it says I must do this.
IF it is in there, I would quit & find another teaching job—perhaps in Alaska.
This is intimidation, pure & simple.
actually learning useful things is now the last priority at these government indoctrination centers.
Every “educator” must arrive with a dildo up their arse. This is important in todays enlightened world.
But in the same state you can’t hand out copies of the Constitution... What an F up.
Yep. Any straight white kid being bullied by blacks, hispanics, or gays will be suspended if he dares to complain.
“America’s Animal Farm”
SEVERAL DIFFERENT LANGUAGES?? Why not teach ENGLISH to the students, instead of letting them use their NATIVE LANGUAGES??????
Welcome to the LAUSD... for Spqainish press 1, for Korean press 2, for Chinese press 3, for English, hang up and move out of LA...
Yes — good points at 9.... Several “GMTAs” here...
If you are talking about imagined bullying, that’s one thing. That cannot be avoided.
However if you are talking about REAL bullying, i.e. refusal to be a conduit of the special love of Christ which leads to reconciliation with God — then you are so badly in the wrong that you cannot even see it.
And even though in fact the last may be morally useful... well, as C. S. Lewis very usefully pointed out, to afflict people “because it is good for them” indeed will not break God’s plan but it DOES constitute volunteering for the post of Satan in that plan... and it will earn you Satan’s wages. Be very careful not to excuse such volunteering to be the afflicting party behind the stalking horse of “oh, affliction is good for them.” God has Satan on a chain (exact biblical language “in eternal bonds”) and if you call on that power you will be trapped as a slave to a master that’s on a chain. Not too fun.
At any rate, Fisto, the noblest fight is not against flesh and blood but against Satan’s supernatural minions. And Satan is socked in the teeth with acts of... kindness. Very precisely targeted ones, not sloppy indulgence, but meeting the real need. It’s easy to pontificate like a Fisto. It’s harder, but actually brings the blessing, to view the person as already a potential beneficiary of Christ’s cross, and extend that very special love. Which rightly embarrasses the bullying-excusers.
I’ll make it a foursome here I guess. Almost all homos already have a plethora of griefs. They don’t have to be told there’d be a wonderful benefit to leaving it. They try vainly to mask it by pride, but that never works. It would never work if the entire society were “gay-friendly” in the manner that the “gay movement” intends.
Who will stand up and be the Christ carrier of the situation. This is the question. You set your sights way too low — and earn God’s righteous frown — if you only look at pushback on an earthly level.
Tolerance is now not enough, they want to be celebrated.
And it will fail to satisfy them if they are.
In a way these folks are canaries in a mine. They need a different kind of love than the warped, intensely shallow stuff they’ve gotten themselves wrapped up in. In general that love has become very scanty over the last several decades. It’s more like the frog in a slowly pumped vacuum chamber than the frog in the kettle. This love has one and only one source and that is almighty God. A whole people is under indictment here.
However finding the love is no further than ceasing to say No to God. We’re the ones pumping the love out of our chamber with Satan’s assistance. “The fool says in his heart ‘No God’” (Literal rendition of the Old Testament Hebrew)
I wonder how far it is from “encouraging” to “victimizing” if you choose not to wear these silly badges.
