Gay Activists Cross the Line at Maine Middle School

The principal of a middle school in Gorham, Maine, is apologizing after students at the school were given explicit instructions for homosexual sex during what was supposed to be a “Diversity Day” presentation. According to the Associated Press, a group calling itself the Proud Rainbow Youth of Southern Maine was slated to give a presentation to the students about “gender diversity” and “discrimination.” But what they got, according to complaints from parents, was a pornographic explanation about homosexual sex.

The principal of a middle school in Gorham, Maine, is apologizing after students at the school were given explicit instructions for homosexual sex during what was supposed to be a “Diversity Day” presentation October 25. According to the Associated Press, a group calling itself the Proud Rainbow Youth of Southern Maine was slated to give a presentation to the students about “gender diversity” and “discrimination.” But what they got, according to complaints from parents, was a pornographic explanation about homosexual sex.

“Principal Robert Riley said he was alerted by some teachers who said it all happened so fast they didn't know how to respond,” reported AP. During a question-and-answer session toward the end of the presentation, the talk turned toward the inappropriate subject matter. While some observers said the discussion was prompted by a student question, others insisted the presenters initiated an explanation about homosexual sexual activity.

Parents were understandably outraged, “I don’t want my child taught heterosexual foreplay, let alone homosexual foreplay in school,” one of the parents, Kristy Howard, told reporters. She added that while teachers present could have stopped the exchange, they did not. “If you feel something is wrong, you stop it immediately,” she said. “And that didn’t happen. That’s bothersome to me.”

Principal Riley quickly sent a letter home to parents, apologizing for the inappropriate discussion, following up with a post on the school's blog conceding that there was “no excuse for what happened. It happened, and it happened quickly in response to an honest student question. The results of which we are all very aware. We will be more vigilant in the future to make sure this does not happen again.”
