High School Announcements?

Scheduled for the morning of 4/28 at (Only in) Amherst Regional High School:

"I pretend that because my dad is a minister, I CAN'T be gay. But then I can't keep my boyfriend." Frank Warren's PostSecret project invites people to write a secret on a postcard, decorate it, and return it to him anonymously. To observe this year's LGBT Pride Week, we are doing our own PostSecret project this week at ARHS. Please take an index card during lunch, decorate it, and write a secret about your personal relationship to LGBT issues and queer culture. We'll have details on where you can deposit your card tomorrow.

Of course this commercial doesn’t quite match the mid-January 'Morning Announcement':

* VAGINA! Vagina. Va. Gi. Na. Get used to saying it, because The Vagina Monologues is coming to the high school stage, Friday, February 15th! Mark your calendars, and get ready to become part of the worldwide phenomenon.

Now if they could just put these to music, we would have “High School Musical 3”. To Hell with Disney!

Why is his example secret premised on a fantasy? Don't you think any kid who is different from most of his/her friends in a they regard as peculiar would appreciate the respect of having it treated as if it were real?

(/snark alert) I like the part "decorate it"... because as everyone knows LGBT ages 14-18 can't resist an opportunity to be artistic.

Va Gi Na. C u unt. P ee nis. C o ck. Better get used to it!

Yeah, and since it's the School officially promoting it you have to wonder if EVERYTHING submitted become public documents?

Maybe I’ll hit them with a F.O.I Public Documents Request and then post a “Best Of” series.
