So I’m not sure if it’s because I’m a young Catholic that my school experience was different. At school:
-gay was okay
-we could speak to our teachers about our sex life without getting judged
-we welcomed people from other religions into our school, we even had a class teaching us about different religions/ways of life & teachings us that in the end we’re all the same and that’s why we should love each other
-we didn’t have uniforms until high school
-girls were allowed to wear the boys’ uniforms
-the boys were allowed to wear the girls’ uniforms (but everyone agreed that the kilt was uncomfortable, so the school redesigned it for comfort) It was pretty awesome, especially because of the proper education thanks to government funding. To all the athiest, agnostics, other-religions, LGBT people who had a terrible time at a Catholic school, I’m sorry for you, but I just hope you know that there are Catholic schools out there that have caught up to speed.
