TEXAS – A school principal is in hot water today after telling a “GAY” student who was being bullied that if he wanted to not get picked on, he should “act less gay.”
“If you come into school super flaming and other kids are harassing you, that maybe you should tone it down a bit, and stop flaunting your extra gayness,” said principal Rick Mullins of Texas Junior High. “I have nothing against gay people. Some of my closest friends are gay, but they don’t walk around wearing pink shirts and paint their faces with rainbows like some of these kids do today.”
School policy does not allow faculty to divulge the name of any students involved in bullying incidents, but some students spoke to a local news station, anonymously, about the harassment they’ve dealt with.
“I used to get picked on all the time because I’m a Jew,” said one student. “I told the principal, and he told me just to stop wearing my yarmulke, and maybe cut my ‘jew dreads,’ and the bullies would forget about me. I was a little upset at first, but I did what he suggested, and now I don’t get picked on, so I guess his advice worked.”
“I’ve actually told Principal Waters multiple times that I get picked on all the time for being poor and black, but he told me to just to suck it up, because there was no way I couldn’t pretend to not be black anymore,” said another student. “He did suggest that I rob a couple stores and get higher-end clothes, and maybe appear more rich. The principal s**ks.”
