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.

i am 31, and my school was similiar to how you describe yours. Did nuns run your schools? apparently they are progressive, its the priests that usually subscribe to the drivel. It was perfectly ok to be gay in my schools also. We had people of different religions too! And we had a girl in my theology class in senior year who was athiest, and she was our teachers favorite (a nun!) we even had a nun in junior year who told us that she used to be engaged and she wasnt a virgin, either! HA!! I feel bad for people who got stuck at bad schools, but most people i know went to schools like us!
