Corona del Mar High School Sucks

rentposter.jpg

Queerty picked up a story about how Orange County’s Corona del Mar High School has banned ‘Gay Characters’ in the Drama Department.

[sigh]

With all the shiz that is going on around the globe why are we obsessing over irrelevant crap like banning a play that features gay people when we should be obsessing over the x-rated pictures of Marlon Brando sucking a big uncut wang that just leaked. Obviously the link is NSFW.

Let them put on their play. Sheesh. Can’t we all just get along?

    This is one area where we disagree. While I think high schoolers can handle a lot more than society thinks they can, I’m not sure Rent is necessarily appropriate for high school age kids to be doing in their school.

    But maybe I’m just old fashioned…..

    The thing about art is that it’s subjective. What you deem as inappropriate I may think is just fine and vice versa. This creates all kinds of problems for High Schools with fine arts programs.

    In this case the ban isn’t about Rent being stooped for being too adult but rather it’s being banned because it features gay characters – which I think we can both agree is patently stupid and retardedly wrong.

    This makes me so mad. Banning High School students from putting on any production that features gay characters sends an underlying message that the school does not support diversity. How do you think this makes the students feel? Pretty angry, sad and disappointed I would venture to guess. What a let down.

    Corona del Mar you should be ashamed!
