Should there be schools made only for the LGBT?

Personally, I don't think there should be. They shouldn't feel the need to be separated from everybody else just because they are gay, or bi. That just suggests that they are different from us, which they are not. I mean, soon they will make bathrooms separate for gays/bi's and straights. Starting with small things like a separate school, even though it sounds harmless, could lead to bigger problems in the future.

Of course not, it would go against segregation laws we fought so hard for. On top of that, I don't think it's a big deal that LGBT people go to the same school as me, or that they would even want that kind of attention towards the gay community.

Okay, it wouldn't be illegal. As long as the school isn't financed by the state (aka a private school) then it's completely allowed. I honestly don't have a problem with anybody setting one of these up. It wouldn't affect me so I would go about my way regardless. It'd probably segregate people more, since we should be trying to integrate as opposed to separate. But really it wouldn't bother me.

Nooooo. that'll ruin everything we've worked so hard for.
That will further separate the LGBT, and they will be even more self-consicous.
Next thing you know, there will be a school for asians, whites and blacks.
Totally the opposite of what we are aiming for.

It's not as discriminating an idea as it might sound at first. If someone is having real trouble fitting into a school because of their sexuality why not give them the choice to go to a school where they can be comfortable and happy in their daily life without worrying about the constant abuse that some people get. It's not like they would be forcefully segregated,.


But what happens when they get out into the world? It's even worst out there.


They wouldn't be cut off from society, its not a leper colony. The majority of people who've been bullied were bullied at school, teenagers are usually the most cruel. Why not provide another option for these people!? It's not like they'll be herded in at gunpoint or anything.

Would also probably provide a better social life, giving people a chance to be open and mix with people of their own sexuality on a regualar basis. Wouldn't you hate to be the only straight person in your year?

While they might get more support and feel more comfortable with their peers at a LGBT school, it irks me a little that society is so divided over something so trivial that such a school would exist. I'm also uncomfortable with the whole categorizing people and making separate facilities for them. While I'm sure that's not the intent of the Harvey Milk school, it's a little disconcerting.

How would putting them into a segregated school system be giving them a chance to open up? It might actually do a better job of closing their minds. While I agree with their right to establish such a facility, I don't believe it would be beneficial to the integration and tolerance of peoples with different sexual orientations.

the answer is hell no

so why the hell should they have their own school that is oxymoron
dont get me wrong i like gays and lesbian and they feel the same way


Lawl there is a diference?


of course there is a difference but everyone is different so that is a give
if you like tall people should you have your own school ?
just because there is a difference between what you like and what i like

i dont agree to that.
they are still considered as human
and they have the right to be treated fairly
anywhere we look at it they are still boys and girls. they just wanted to be the
opposite gender.
if we do this we are violating their human rights and discriminating them for who
they truly are as a person. they have the right to be who they are and what they want to be

You're right, it wouldn't do much for integration and tolerance. But sometimes people just want to go to places where to don't have to struggle to be accepted.

Right, no one can force someone to go to a segregated school. But imagine a gay person willfully makes a school for other LBGT people. They don't have to go to that school, but they may. What would say about that situation?
