    Any time you are outside what is accepted as the norm you are going to be under scrutiny for what ever you say or do. You are under a different standard than everyone else. That’s just the way it is. It sounds like the student teacher was ‘politicizing’ his response to the student when he talked about the fact that he couldn’t get married because he was gay. Should that have even been brought up in the first place? Perhaps he was carrying a grudge or was angry about it and was merely venting his frustrations. What ever the reason, if he had kept this to himself nothing probably would have happened to him. Everyone, whether straight or gay, needs to be careful what they say or do around children.

    "Thats just the way it is?" Thats pretty callos and somthing that should not be. the student asked a question and he gave an honest answer. It's not like he answered something dirty or obscene. No one should be fired for being gay or being honest. If something wa said that the school deemed inappropriate they should have talked to him. NOT just outright fire him.
