The Accepting Schools Act: the Miss G Project Wants Your Thoughts!Tuesday, November 30 1999
The Ontario government has introduced a bill, *the Accepting Schools Act* (http://www.ontla.on.ca/web/bills/bills_detail.do?locale=en&BillID=2549&detailPage=bills_detail_the_bill&Intranet=) that attempts to address the issues of sexual assault, gender-based violence, and homophobic bullying in schools. The backlash against the bill has tended to be homophobic and transphobic.
We want to know what you think about the proposed legislation. Put on your fabulous critical-thinking caps (although they're probably already on) and let us know: what does it do right, what could it do better, what concerns do you have? And don't just tell us, tell your Member of Provincial Parliament and the Education Minister. Homophobia and transphobia shouldn't dominate the discussion. Please email us with any thoughts, rants or master plans!
