I fight this all the time so that my students won’t feel this. But it’s an uphill battle. Every book, every story, every website, has to be approved, and they won’t be if they’re not status quo. Bible thumping coworker is one of the most pigheaded prejudiced a’holes I’ve ever met, but nothing is ever done about it not matter how many times I complain. Racist comments or homophobic comments from the students are brushed off as “ah, they’re just being kids” and from the staff as “religious freedom”. I’m not black or latina or gay, but I feel the pain these ladies are trying to convey.
