Anti-bullying vote blocked by Christian Conservatives

Boy, 13, sues teacher after receiving "Fag" candy heart

Boy, 13, sues teacher after receiving "Fag" candy heart The lawsuit says the teacher rubbed an inoffensive valentine message off the candy heart and wrote "Fag" on it before giving it to the boy in front of his fellow students.
