Blanche Ely High Principal Is Free To Discriminate Lesbian Students

Written by 

A principal in Florida outed two lesbian students to their parents after lecturing and threatening them because they were holding hands.

“We were walking to class when he rolled up on his golf cart and said, ‘Didn’t I tell you two to stop doing do that?’ and then he took us to his office,” told one of the girls to South Florida Times. “He gave us a speech and then separated us before calling our parents, which was wrong. My mother already knew but my friend’s mom didn’t know she is into girls.”

It seems that it was not the first time the principal Karlton Johnson had informed them about holding hands but they, of course, continued because straight students had the right to do it.

“There has been a situation in my upcoming [sic] school, Blanche Ely High, dealing with discrimination against the gay/lesbian community,” one of the students wrote in an e-mail complaining to school officials. “Our principal here has tried to suspend me and my friend for holding hands. And I would like to know if such actions are necessary for something so fragile.

A complaint was then sent but a letter from North Area Superintendent Sharon Airaghi indicated Johnson was within his rights and had violated no district policies by his warning to them.
