Irmo High principal announces resignation over Gay-Straight Alliance
A quote from the principal: I feel the formation of a Gay/Straight Alliance Club at Irmo High school implies that students joining the club will have chosen to or will choose to engage in sexual activity with members of the same sex, opposite sex, or members of both sexes.
You know, I'm glad he's removing himself from the school instead of sticking around to be the nookie police. It's not surprising to me that, when people like him think about gays, they automatically make the mental leap to imagining gays having sex together, and then getting all offended. I wonder, do these same folks immediately imagine a man-woman couple having sex if they see those people holding hands in public? I would imagine that they don't, usually, yet they make that mental leap when same-sex couples are holding hands.
So we have silly Mr. Principal here, who, because it's a club involving gays, is now suddenly imagining this club apparently engaging in mass orgies, both hetero- and homosexual, and it makes him feel funny inside. I have a tip for him, though: Keep your thoughts out of other people's pants, and you'll live a more comfortable life. I am wondering what he'd do if he were running a nursing home, and then suddenly discovered that some of the old people actually have sex with each other. "Ew, yuck, omg"? I don't know. I also wonder if he banned prom night, since pretty much everyone gets laid on prom night...
