Medley stated that Gays have no purpose. Dr. Baker your students, especially LGBT students and straight kids accused of being LGBT cannot be safe in schools with teachers who espouse anti-gay sentiments. My personal A-Z list of LGBT people with a purpose: Jane Addams, James Baldwin, Willa Cather, Sergei Diaghilev, Ralph Waldo Emerson, E.M. Forster, Andre Gide, Lorraine Hansberry, James Ivory, Barbara Jordan, Frida Kahlo, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Cynthia Nixon, Wilfred Owen, Manuel Puig, Sally Ride, Maurice Sendak, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Paul Verlaine, Virginia Woolf, Marguerite Yourcenar, Franco Zeffirelli.

      Retired teacher, coordinator, assistant superintendent and sister to my gay brother who is the best guy I know.

      I am a mother of a gay son, and to hear an "educator" stating in public that gays have no purpose is outrageous. If she harbors these believes, I am quite certain she truly does not have any LGTB child's best interest in mind, and therefore should not be in such a position. This statement is her belief, and everyone is entitled to have their own beliefs, however, there are consequences to everything in life ~ even one's own beliefs. There is no way she can hold this belief AND effectively teach a LGTB child.

      Every student needs to know that his/her teacher is there to teach without judging.

      Someone who not only thinks like this but espouses disdain for a group of her students, does NOT deserve to be teaching!
