9-Year-Old Girl Writes An Inspiring Note To Her Teacher After He Came Out During Anti-Bullying Week

Children can be so kind!

A nine-year-old girl wrote a letter to her primary school teacher, Mr. R, after he came out during anti-bullying week.

He brought it up, using a conversation about people calling things "gay" as an insult, which caused his students to think of things in a different light.

The girl's letter read:

Dear Mr R,

Even though you're gay, I will always treat you the same way as I do now. I still think about you the same way as I used to. You're a great teacher and these are just some of the word's (sic) that I would describe you as: great, amazing, fantastic, brilliant, awesome and brave.

The reason why I say brave is because you shared a personal secret which was very brave.

You don't have to feel scared because I know that everyone in the class feels the same way as I do.

From A x x

PS. We are proud of you

This girl just gets it!

And whoever Mr. R is, we're proud of him too!

    Completely inappropriate for a teacher to come out at school. Teachers are professionals and should leave their private life private. Professionally speaking, you do not discuss your sexual orientation with your students whether you are gay, straight, lesbien, etc…

    Re: JJ – I used to think this for a while, but what I and I think you might want to learn is that you are confusing sexual orientation with sexual behavior. A person can be gay and not sexually active. Stating they are gay does not imply necessarily sexual activity.

    Would you ALSO say it is inappropriate for him to talk about his husband in class? Especially since its now legal for gays and lesbians to marry in a growing number of states. In school we called married women by the "Mrs." Should we also not refer to them as such since it might describe them as having a relationship that just might have a sexual nature assuming married heterosexual women are presumed to have sex with their husbands?

    gay for a very long time has been used to simply describe people ina derogatory way because it implied sexual behavior that was accepted as mainstream while heterosexual behavior was accepted. So we have grown accustomed to accepting that married heterosexual couples can describe themselves in ways that presume their lifestyles are acceptable - wearing wedding rings, taking the names of their partners, talking about their children and or spouses.

    Its naive to think that as we move on as a society that keeping the stigma of the word "gay" is meant to still limit gay people as a derogatory term. It is time that society learns that it is not.

    my friend's mom makes $89 an hour on the computer . She has been without a job for nine months but last month her pay check was $17221 just working on the computer for a few hours. this website ……………………………………… walletprofit.com

    Re: JJ – I agree with you. My mother was an elementary school teacher and mostly taught 2nd grade and discussing your personal life is just something she did not do. And Scotty that involved talking about her husband, my father as well. If someone asked if she was married she would answer Yes but offer no more details.

    I also don't think teachers should share too much of their personal lives (though I did know one of my teachers was gay when I was in elementary school). However, in this context it seems fitting. A teacher is often someone a young student might look up to. The fact that this teacher used an anti-bullying day to be open about and accepting of his sexual orientation might encourage his students to do the same thing when they are older, and at the same time he taught them that its not ok to bully someone because of their sexuality.

    It seems the children have become smarter than some of the ultra religious adults hanging on to antiquated ideals.
