Brokeback Mountain shown in Elementary School

Family of girl, 12, sues after 'Brokeback' shown in class

May 13, 2007


A suit was filed on behalf of a 12-year-old girl who claims she suffered psychological distress when a teacher showed in class the gay-themed movie "Brokeback Mountain.

"The girl and her grandparents are seeking more than $400,000 in damages under the suit filed Friday against the Chicago Board of Education, et al. In her lawsuit, a 12-year-old girl claims she suffered psychological distress after watching "Brokeback Mountain."

A substitute teacher introduced herself and then said, "What happens in class stays in class," the suit claims. The sub then had a student close the door, and started showing the controversial R-rated film, which features two men engaged in sex. The suit alleges that the principal was aware that the tale of the love between two cowboys set in the West of the 1960s was being shown to the minors.

I find this reprehenible. NO, what is said in the class is to be shared at HOME where the people who are responsible for this child not only need to know what their child is learning, but they have a responsibility to this child to protect her! GRRRRR! Thanks for the heads-up.
