    I'm off today, but while I was subbing at a high school yesterday, a student said, "That's gay," as though gay meant the same thing as stupid. I strongly discouraged him from using that word in that connotation again, and I reminded the students some of their classmates are LGBTQ. I explained that my ISD opposes bullying in all its forms. I received a thank-you note from one student for my efforts. I think more teachers should promote the basic humanitarian values (i.e. that everyone is equal, and that things like lesbophobia and all forms of homophobia are as bad as racism).

    It took the Holocaust for people to realize that anti-Semitism and racism are bad. I wonder what it'll take this time.

    That is highly debatable.

    And yet, people still need to be reminded of that.

    If that was true, there would have been no need for the Civil Rights Movement. The KKK would have been treated like the Nazi leadership.

    Unfortunately, it's likely that some of the same people who fought or supported the war against Nazi Germany, also participated in supporting segregation and the KKK.

    The Holocaust had nothing to do with the Allied cause. Most people in those countries didn't really know about it.

    And LGBT people were targeted by the Nazis. They were the only victims the Allies sent back to prison.

    Which sounds weird, but people are filled with contradictions. Similarly, I've noticed that people with lesbophobic views manifest many contradictory attitudes. Homophobia feeds into many prejudices, such as biphobia and transphobia. In the end, a person has a problem with themselves, or how they view others, if they really want to judge and regulate others' sexuality. It's ridiculous.

    Yay, I'm a sub, too! Coincidentally, I noticed a poster in today's classroom that pleased me:

    As odd as it seems to us now, the American South was one of the hardest regions for the non-interventionist America First movement to make inroads to. Because of strong military connections, the south supported going to war in Europe well before we actually entered the war.
