A group of students and parents in Alabama is calling for the removal of a rainbow pride flag from a high school classroom — arguing that it can be compared to displaying a Confederate flag.
“We strongly feel that it creates a hostile and provocative learning environment for students not comfortable to openly supporting the LGBTQ+ community in a public school where students come from diverse political and religious backgrounds,” a petition reads about the flag in Auburn.
I cannot imagine how the 2 flags could be compared. The Rebel flag has historic significance. The lgbtq+abcdefhi +g-whiz “flag” was put forth as an affront to society.
Only an “educator” could make a claim: “[name withheld to protect the stupid from derision] is aware of the situation and is working with staff and students to address the concerns. While we are aware of the online petition, there is not a controversy at our school,” the statement said.
