How can anyone assume that because I am a lesbian, I will want to abuse young girls? This is a common thing in schools. My school has a number of lesbian and gay teachers and administration staff, but we cannot be free to express ourselves or discuss our lifestyle choices. It is taboo to be gay and work with children, no matter how illogical or unfair this is, it is accepted. So we have to hide our true selves for fear of parental and management backlash. No one assumes that straight teachers want to abuse the kids in their care, but say you are gay and get ready to to find a new job.
Loving caring people are living a lie, it is hypocritical to advocate social education, and still make it a virtual crime to be a gay teacher. I think it is time for a change. If you agree please send an email to
chunglunfong@yahoo.com.hk. If you could just say all teachers deserve respect and support no matter their sexual orientation, it would help us have the courage to make a stand. It seems so difficult when it feels no one cares. Thank you. Oh the school is an international one so should have a modern outlook. Kiangsu Chekiang College International Section. Thanks again and keep strong!
