Ok, so...let's start with some intro.

In the yaoi and yuri fandom (which is boys and girls love in anime), I've seen a lot of people make up fantasies about schools for gays and bis where creatures of all kinds (humans, vampires, anthropomorphics aka furries, etc.) can go to school without having to face any sort of discrimination for who they love.

This thread basically talks about the same thing except it's more realistic.

To put it simply, this is just creating an alternative path for teens to escape the harrassment in school that can push them to and over their limits.

There is already a school in NYC called Harvey Milk High School (HMHS) that opened a few years ago and I think it's the first and only LGBT school in the nation.

For those of you who might be interested, here's a really long and debative article on the existance of the school. It's six pages long, but you kin just read the first few paragraphs like I did and ignore the rest :

So anyways, submit whatever comments you wish to post up and anything you wish to say but please refrain from posting anything really unneccessary.

Absolutely not. Everybody is trying to get over segregation, making schools like would only put everything in reverse of what is trying to be accomplished. What should be done, is schools should do is step up there monitoring of harrasment and try and fix it. Now I know there will always be harrasment, but schools generally turn the other way.

idk i think we should just let them stay in regular schools, because everyone should be treated the same

but the bad thing is, they'll never be treated the same b/c of people who hate them

hmmm...i dont think there should be....i mean thats like segregation for your sexual orientation...all the gay community wants is acceptance and to be treated equally...

and to make a school just for them i think is the opposite of what they want...

Woudn't there be cases of rape then if that would happen?
and wouldn't there be even more discrimination since all the opposing would go and vandalise the school for LGBT?
Personally I think no...

Also shouldn't this be in the Extended Discussion?

I read about the Chicago one they tried to start.

Absolutely not. Why should we pay TAX payer money so that they can get their own school?

If they start a private school, okay.

Though isn't it discrimination? Like sexual orientationism?

So what you're saying is that gays and lesbians are rapists?

I think it should be, if things get too complicated..how many exactly are being shot at or bullied? Is it the same amount of nerds, hippies, blah blah blah?
