Gay Tolerance in Schools
A Gay Tolerance Program is a policy adopted by different schools all over the US in order to eliminate the practice of bullying emotional and gay individuals. When adopted, this initiative is usually implemented by the whole community, especially by parents and teachers.
Parents have a very important role at home by educating their children to accept themselves and also to accept other individuals who are not like them and who are different in a good way. Being gay does not mean you are somehow inferior and you deserve to be beaten up after school hours. Also, being tolerant is one of the safest policies when it comes to approaching people who are different.
Teachers also have an essential role in class, by inspiring children and educating them towards tolerance and acceptance. Integration is an important part of the school experience. Children need to grow and learn in an environment that is gay friendly and which does not abuse such people. Later on, when they move to college, children will know how to behave.
Gay people need to be treated equally because they have the same problems and same experiences as straight people. In the end, their problems are similar, meaning that they are not so different. Gay men face sexual dysfunctions because they are under a lot of pressure from families, their colleagues and the entire society regarding their sexual status. Many gay men find it hard to confess to friends or close ones about their problems because they feel like they will be rejected and misunderstood. This aspect can cause a lot of sexual and emotional frustrations.
