In this article, the authors talk about race and racism and racial harassment and discuss how to end homophobia in schools. The authors know what they don't want people to say in the name of ending homophobia: "If these were racial slurs, teachers would be stopping them." They find this approach so offensive because it's a lie. At least it is a major exaggeration. And second because it alienates some of their own and some of their allies, making them choose between two wrongs to right. The authors point out that it is the responsibility of educators to ensure that everybody is made welcome and safe at school.
