dancetaxi Posted December 7, 2005 Report Share Posted December 7, 2005 Okay, I can't take it any more. I apologize for the vent. I know we just had a thread on a specific incident, but I just feel the need to vent in general. I am so sick and tired of my son coming home in tears become some insensitive, ignorant little kid thinks it is funny to call my son gay because he is a dancer!! There was an incident a few weeks ago, and my son eventually stood up to the offender and he backed off. I thought it was all going to have a happy ending because the school PTO made arrangements for the entire 5th grade to go watch my son in the Nutcracker. Well, since they sent permission slips out to everyone and put my son's name on the forms, now he has become an even bigger target. Maybe things will blow over after all the kids see the show. My son was just crying and crying when he walked in the door and asking me why kids say such things. I feel like a broken record: "Oh, those kids are just ignorant, they don't know how hard you all work and how strong dancers actually are. Blah Blah Blah..." *sigh* I know there is nothing I can do to change things. I guess I'm just a Pollyanna that believes that people should just be nice to each other. Is that too much to ask??? Is this how it is going to be his entire life?? Gee, how's that for something to look forward to? Thanks for listening. Quote Link to comment
