Re "Can the Assembly pass a law letting me designate my desk to be a chair?" (Worth Repeating, May 10): As a high school Gay-Straight Alliance adviser, I have for the past 15 years had to have discussions with students over comments like the one made by many Republicans, Jon Fleischman now included.
Students realize comments by such folks are laughable, backward and self-serving. Previously, comments had included,"Mixed marriage, will my dog be able to marry my cat if that happens?"
Their expressions are not well thought out. Perhaps that is a reason why the Republican Party has ceased to be a factor in politics today. My students, gay and straight, shake their heads and feel sorry for people who listen to . Fleischman and others like him.
