MN parents upset with Sage; Turmeric remains in good graces, but there's still thyme
Some parents in the Minneapolis area are quite upset that Interdisciplinary Downtown School teacher Peter Sage recently told his second grade class -- as part of a classroom discussion on diversity -- that he is gay. Unlike us, who are simply upset that we -- as part of the gay population who didn't always understand our feelings growing up -- weren't born in Minneapolis circa 1999.
According to the AP, the upset parents "and about a dozen supporters" held a protest on Friday, in which they sought to have their second-graders switched to another, presumably more hetero learning situation. Our suggestion to the protesting parents: Stop flaunting your lifestyles and man/woman-based truths! Sheesh, there are children present!
