I’ll Call You Out as a Liar . . .

Read this FortBendNow article and see if you can make heads or tails of it.

Apparently FBISD Trustee Marilyn Glover felt called upon to threaten the media not to misquote her about her apparent lack of understanding of the gist of a resolution that the school board was considering.

A resolution about adolescent and pre-adolescent bullying.

A resolution about bullying those who are perceived to have different sexual orientations.

Bullying that has led to the tragic suicide of several young people.

That she did so is somewhat of a mystery to me, and can only be interpreted as a defensive act: one where a school board trustee exposed their lack of knowledge or understanding of things that are very much a concern to educators in this new century, where LGBT causes are poised to become mainstream, if not already mainstream.

But then, you get what you vote for.
