Superintendent approves GSA, overriding Principal who called kids ‘faggots’ when young (LGBTQNation)
Valley Stream South High School students will soon have their own Gay/Straight Alliance, despite the fact that their principal has rejected the effort, said bullying wasn’t a big deal, and admitted to calling people “faggots” herself — but didn’t mean anything by it.
Students, who have been trying to form a GSA at the school since October 2010, have had their proposal rejected by the school’s principal Maureen Henry, despite following proper procedures, according to the Long Island Gay and Lesbian Youth (LIGALY) group.
"When talking about why the club was important and sharing their own personal experiences of being bullied, including being called a “faggot”, Ms. Henry told the students that she too called people “faggots” when she was young and didn’t mean anything bad by it."
