Rally participants speak in support of gay-straight alliances

During her career as an Alberta teacher and school counsellor, Suzanne Tiemstra has worked to support safe spaces for LGBTQ youth.

Over the years and across schools, the stories of heartache she heard from students were always the same, she told a rally in support of gay-straight alliances in downtown Calgary on Sunday.

    My experience back in the 90’s in college in Alberta was that these gay-straight alliance groups were purely hook up groups for gays.

    My experience in 2015 was a principal tried to start one at a rural school and other than a single bisexual girl no one joined. So the principal told an assembly of students that same sex relationships were a great way for teens and tweens (11-14 year olds) to experiment sexually without the risk of pregnancy.

    They really do want to sexualize children.

    Paraphrased rally: “Our emotions and mental illnesses tell us that we need to destroy the school system and your civilization for that reason alone.”

  • Liberal Progressive

    Isn’t that xenophobic? Shouldn’t they also be talking about Gay-Refugee alliances?

    • JoKeR

      Isn’t that Ableist? Shouldn’t they also be talking about alternately-abled/Gay/Transgendered/Refugee/Undocument Peoples’/Visible Minority/Straight (but not male white straight) Alliances?

    Nobody cares who you f*ck. Get over yourselves.

    • JoKeR

      Then shouldn’t they also have Gay/Lawyer Alliances, since lawyers will f*ck anybody?

      • Clausewitz

        “since lawyers will f*ck everybody?”. There, fixed it for you.

        • JoKeR

          Thank you. You are correct about lawyers.

    Our children are our legal responsibilities until they are of the age of majority.

    If you have to hide what you are doing from your parents then you KNOW you are doing something wrong.

  • BillyHW

    Women and faggots in alliance to destroy our society’s morals and corrupt our children. No surprise there.
