Utah Grandfather Says Addressing Anti-Gay Bullying Should Start in Elementary School (GayRights)
Leonard Ridley is quickly becoming the most popular grandfather in the country. The Utah resident, a retired social worker, has decided that if elementary schools in his town won't address the subject of anti-gay bullying with students, then he's not going to sit around and let silence prevail. So what did Ridley do?
As we mentioned earlier this month, Ridley decided to put pen-to-posterboard and make some signs that he could put in his front yard which, conveniently, sits right across from a school. The messages that those signs carry? Pretty simple and sweet: "Tell the truth." "Stop Gay Suicide." "Gays Are Born Gay."
Nothing too controversial about those signs, right? Not if you talk to local school officials, who fear that the signs are inappropriate for children below the sixth grade. They want Ridley to remove the signs, and called him into their office recently to lecture him about the "inappropriateness" of telling youth that people are born gay.
Ridley is not backing down.
