While we were away: NC: Protecting children triumphs over 'protecting children'

by Jeremy Hooper

Despite vocal protests from those who see ulterior motives in the LGBT community's every push for peace, the North Carolina legislature managed to pass The School Violence Prevention Act (SVPA). The measure strengthens the state school's anti-bullying policies, specifically citing sexual orientation at an at-risk category:

The press office of North Carolina Gov. Beverly Perdue has confirmed she will sign the anti-bullying bill passed by the legislature on Tuesday, June 23.

The Fayetteville Observer reports that an aide has said she expects the governor to sign the bill. Hickory-based activist and blogger Brandon Greeson also reported via Twitter that the governor will sign it within 10 days.

No word as to what "controversy" the local opposition will next direct their energy. Though we do hear there's a popular gay kid in Raleigh who has too many friends for their liking. Perhaps they can go much localized with their attempts to keep stigmatization a queer rite of passage?
