On June 2, the students of Massachusetts middle school refused to participate in Pride-related activities and wear rainbow outfits. Instead, they protested and chanted, “USA are my pronouns.”

Parents discussed the incident at the town hall meeting

A parent of an LGBT student said, “I was shocked and horrified.” Parents of straight students said their children felt “offended” they had to participate. One mom told the local TV, “My daughter just said, “You know, mom, that’s offensive to me, I am straight.”

The school district reacted

Burlington Public Schools issued a letter claiming they were “obligated to provide a safe environment for all students to feel safe, seen and respected without retaliation.”

Superintendent’s message

Superintendent Eric Conti wrote, “I recognize that discussions and celebrations of individual identity are complex and impacted by individual values, religions, and cultural norms, the result of which may include expressions of racism, anti-religious hate, ableism, and in this case homophobia.”

Conti continued, “The Burlington Public Schools believe in the individual dignity and humanity of each and every person in our community. We embrace everyone for who they are and for what they bring to our schools and the larger community. Let us all work on being kinder to each other.”

This was not the only incident in the school

The Boston Globe reported that there was anti-Semitic and racist graffiti in the bathroom days after the Pride incident. The school principal, Cari Perchase, does not think these were related events.

The school talked to the students

Reportedly, the school talked to the students to “educate them about how their behaviors affect others, to take responsibility for their behaviors, and to help us become a more inclusive community where all of us feel that we belong.”

Challenging the town leadership

Burlington Equity Coalition Co-Chair Nancy Bonassera said, “These displays of intolerance and homophobia are unacceptable and impact the whole community.” Bonassera added, “We challenge Burlington town leadership to take an active stand against hate under the guise of ‘free expression.'”

People sided with students

An X account titled Divisive Content wrote about the story, “We need more of this. Most of those students love freedom more than their communist teachers.”

Many asked for adults to leave kids alone

“Damn, for real! Leave the kids alone! They shouldn’t have to be worrying about this nonsense,” said Jennifer Reece. Lattina Brown, an attorney, said on X, “You cannot force these kids to follow your agenda. Leave the children alone. They come to school to get an education. They have feelings, too!”

Some were more extreme

“Get your precious kids out of the communist indoctrination factories. Do whatever it takes. Private school, tutor, home-school…whatever it takes,” posted Joy Flick, mother of three.

Some said children had a valid reason to protest

One person said that the school “forgot” to acknowledge Memorial Day in any way, so “the kids did this in protest back at the administration.” Some argued this was not a case of homophobia, but “it is a natural reaction of teens to rebel against what adults are pushing on them.”
