I would have been disappointed if the teacher hadn't addressed the issue of gay marriage with his student. Silencing LGTBQ voices in schools is just simply not ok, especially considering the lack of role models and allies available to LGBTQ students who often struggle with bullying, shame, etc. If you, like me, believe that schools are a place to learn about the world and acquire the tools to advocate for a more just and equal society, then I don't see how you could disapprove of this man speaking out about his struggle. What this man did was true social justice education in action. I commend him.
