I logged on to my favorite message board this morning, and was immediately sickened.

One of our fellow posters - sweetest guy ever - told us a story of what is going on in his life right now. Remember now, this is 2002...

He's a gay man. Been in a monogomous, relationship with his partner for about 20 years. They have two children, a girl of 13 and a boy of 10. They own a home together and attend church regularly. This man is a teacher.

Apparently, another teacher overheard him talking to one of the other teachers (a heterosexual woman, if that matters at all) about their favorite TV show - Queer As Folk. This teacher was "deeply offended" by hearing their conversation, and reported her feelings to the school principal.

The principal advised the two conversants to apologize to the woman. Of course, they refused. So the woman became vindictive. She contacted the Department of Family Services, and this man's children were taken from school and held for THREE HOURS - without their parents - and interrogated - with such questions as "do you ever sit on your daddy's lap?" "have you ever slept in bed with him?"

The school officials, went through this man's school-issued computer, to make sure he didn't download any kiddie porn...

I am not in any condition to write my feelings about all this.

All I want to do right now, is weep.

And fucking DO SOMETHING!
