I'm reminded of the technologist's dictum: "The future is here; it's just not evenly distributed." That would be a very different conversation in my classroom.

And I come from a moderately progressive part of the world, but was literally unaware of gay issues pretty much until college. It was so deeply closeted around me that I didn't even run into anti-gay slurs - though the geek circles I ran in were less free with that kind of language anyway - until my college acquaintances began speculating about my own proclivities....


I graduated from high school in 1999, my high school was extremely liberal, AND we had a Gay-Straight Alliance club, and yet we still didn't have anyone who was commonly known to be "out". Times they have changed.
