Several teachers and one of the vice-principals made very homophobic remarks at the time and none of them lost their jobs or were suspended for it.
That was in 2005. In Canada. Same sex marriage had already been legalized
and the teachers at my school had to be forced
to learn how to respect gay youth. Some of them were really pissed off by the experience and treated a few students like shit because of it.
As I've mentioned before, there were a few instances in which I simply stopped going to school on a regular basis.
