Texas Homophobia: School Officials Suspend Gay Cheerleader For Kissing Another Boy

Pom Poms

A gay Texas cheerleader is crying foul after high school officials kicked him off the cheerleading squad and suspended him for kissing another boy.

The teenager believes school officials deliberately attempted to catch him in the act by closely monitoring cameras to catch him in the act. According to the boy:

“They never check cameras for anything unless something is stolen,” while he added, “I’m sure we were the only ones, sexual orientation wise, being caught like that.”

The student says that kissing between boys and girls happens all the time, nothing “In this school, kissing is everywhere,” and if that meant a suspension, “half the school would be suspended.”

Following media attention school officials are “reviewing” the decision. If officials decide that the right decision was made the boys parents plan to school the school and district over the alleged and in my view obvious case of homophobia.

Do you believe the school should immediately re-instate the boy’s status at school including his spot on the cheerleader squad?

    Public displays of affection are not tolerated at my daughter's school regardless of orientation. There is no reason you need to be kissing anyone else at school. You are there to learn not hook up.

    at the same time different gendered couples get away with more. when I was in high school same sex couples got in trouble more. suspended more. all that jazz. the opposite gender couples got a slap on the wrist and sent to class. when I lived in texas. that was definately not tolerated. from either couple. I think they should reinstate him. they tolerate different gender couples a majority of the time in texas ik from personal experience, rather than same sex.
