Parents are outraged after an anti-bullying presentation for teenage girls at Linden Avenue Middle School in Red Hook, N.Y., required students to role-play a lesbian relationship.
"[The definitions] were put forth to make sure that students understand that all gender identities and/or sexual orientations are protected in law in New York State as part of an effort to curb harassment, discrimination, and bullying," he wrote.
Mr. Finch also clarified that the definitions of the words "pansexual" and "genderqueer" were "overly granular" when explained to the students and that the school district will make efforts to clarify those meanings.
