"That's what it said on the form he brought home in his backpack."

A school form that Marcus McLaurin brought home last month said his use of the word was the reason for his punishment.

The boy is 7. S-e-v-e-n.

He said his Mom was gay. Which she is.

Marcus' feeling about what he should have done? "cep my mouf shut."

Seems the teacher should be spending a little time in detention. How about writing a 1,000 word essay about getting your facts straight? Not to mention tolerance? Sensitivity, maybe?

And I can think of quite a few community service projects the school board can spend some time in. A literacy project, maybe?
