As more information comes out about the content of the books Kevin Jennings’ organization GLSEN finds appropriate for children in Grades 7-12, I have yet to find any heads of gay organizations or even non-conservative gay bloggers taking Kevin Jennings to task for his lax supervision of conferences he chaired for schoolchildren or for recommending books on or about homosexuality which are not appropriate for the age group. No one even seem to question his judgment. Or ask that GLSEN remove certain books from the list.
Perhaps, I’m wrong, A few google searches surely don’t suffice to explore the universe of gay opinion. So, maybe some of our readers have encountered criticism and questioning of this Obama official. If you have seen something, let me know.
But, so far, I have reached a (tentative) conclusion: the only gay people who receive criticism or censure from gay organizations, blogs or media are those who are open about their Republican politics or conservative views.
We need to do a better job policing our fellows. Is this how we want to educate teenagers about the reality of homosexuality?
More on this anon, much more.
