My son is a quiet passive child who just wants to learn and love. He is 13, Has long hair just like dad. I am an ex musician/vocal teacher of heavy metal, Rock and country. So my child is an artistically influenced child in every way possible. My son wears glasses also. He get called little girl, Faggot, queer, gay boy, lesbian, freak, bitch, hooker and on and on and on. I have been fighting with my school district over this for years now and they just keep giving me the same old bureaucratic BS run around. I have 2 Sons here..I have a 14yo also who is more apt at defending himself and more ready to do so. He almost never has an issue with other kids and infact much to my pride defends other kids when he can without causing himself trouble with the school who will put the County Attourney on my but for pulling him out of school but won't do more than call and talk to the parents of the offending children..it's been the same kids all along with a change in staff if you will here and there. I have told the district to Kess My Arse and have removed my son from the district because it is ultimately up to me to make sure my son is safe and I will no longer force him into a situation that is tormenting and abusive. I guess I am gonna have some legal issues soon but at-least my son won't have to deal with this crap for awhile at-least I hope. I am not good at public activism nor home schooling but I guess I have no choice now. Thank you all for your wonderful work I just hope I can be a true contribution beyond our situation. Oh and yes Mom is in the home also. My wife and I have been happily married for 16 years.
