MICHIGAN MESSENGER — House Committee delays action on anti-bullying legislation, again

“The state legislature has been debating anti-bullying legislation for a decade. It continues to be hamstrung by a difference in opinion by advocates on both sides on whether or not to enumerate — meaning whether to create a list of the groups or traits most likely to be the victims of bullying. The opposition to enumeration is led by the American Family Association of Michigan. They argue enumeration is creating special rights for homosexuals and is really a Trojan horse designed to force schools to become accepting of homosexuality. In favor of enumeration are (homosexual activist) groups like Equality Michigan and the Gay Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN).”
