Today's Star News disturbing headline blared this awful headline again putting the same gender loving community into disrepute as predators at the school level with very little to go on to substantiate the charges. A general feeling or assumption has been made with the aid as well from this tabloid that same gender loving persons be they teens or adults supposedly have some predatory streak and are hell bent on changing or infecting supposed nongay folk or innocent persons.
Have a read of the short piece which in my mind should not have been the lead story but who am I, I am not the star's editor?
A group of first formers were alleged to have been sexually assaulted recently by three lesbian students at a prominent school in St Catherine, THE STAR has learnt.
The incident which took place last Thursday has left several parents furious.
One parent who was reluctant to speak on the matter said that she is considering transferring her child to another institution.
Information reaching THE STAR from other sources is that three lesbian students ganged and fondled about seven grade-seven students in the school bathroom.
THE STAR understands that the officials at the school became aware of the incident after the girls who were being assaulted raised an alarm from the bathroom.
School officials are said to have met with some of the parents on Friday and are tight-lipped about the matter.
When THE STAR made contact with the school principal yesterday, despite the facts being presented to him, he denied the allegations.
However, a reliable source told THE STAR that the accused girls are going to face disciplinary action.
She noted that while it has not reached the stage where any matter had to be referred to a psychiatrist or psychologist, she was aware that cases have been referred to other persons in the education setting because of the nature.
no supporting data
The JAGE boss, however, said she was unable to say if this is widespread in the schools, as she had no data on the issue.
Dr Kelly argued that if there is need for a joint effort to do seminars and workshops on a larger scale to address the matter, the association would take the necessary steps to have it done.
She urged young persons to stop the activity as it is an unhealthy practice.
"I am appealing to the young people that their bodies are temples of God, and it wasn't designed for homosexuality," she argued.
