I have also noticed what you have said at my won High School. Around election time we were talking about the candidates views on things, and having
debates. We got to the topic of Gay Rights and we had to split to Pro and Con, 22 students were Con, with me and another girl being the only Pro. We
were called gay for the rest of the week. We also got to the topic of the Iraq war, and the cut was basically the same, cept backwards. About 20
students were Pro, while me and the remaining 3 were Con. Also with abortion, the same cut as Gay Rights, 22 students were Con while only me and that
girl were Pro. YET, these kids still yell out "Stupid Bush!" whenever his name is mentioned, its like they have no idea.
The Bill of Rights really needs to be taught more in schools, or people will not know what Rights they deserve, but if things keep going the way
theyre going, maybe they dont even deserve those rights? They obviously dont know how to stand up for their rights, or what they even are.
Most of these kids today, which I am one of, are #ing idiots. Most of us base everything on the latest fashions the others have, the
boyfriend/girlfriend the others have (BTW, that "other girl" is my current girlfriend, good pair if you ask me) and LABELS are huge in High School
now. You can be called, if a guy: Fag, a Homo, Queer, if a girl: a Slut, Whore, Roller...and itll usually stick.
Youd think every further generation would have more of a sense of Tolerance, but its just not true. This nation started off Racist, then went down a
bit, and is now pretty neutral, but if trends continue its gonna go right back down the other side to a bit racist, then fully racist. Ugh...
Yikes...I rambled...pick out the relevent bits from that.
