Hi Ian, I also researched an issue related to the LGBTQA community. The laws that exist in this country are disgusting, aren’t they? It feels like our history is taking a step backwards as some people still try to argue that gay people deserve less rights than straight people. I believe that everyone should be treated equally because love is love. Great post, Ian.
Hi Ian- this is a great topic to discuss and I completely agree with you. It is very unfair and unjust for them. They deserve fair treatment and protection as the rest of us do. This issue needs to be resolved. Equal rights for everyone
Okay so I totally agree with you on all the cons about being gay and I hate this because those cons go for the whole LGBT community. I know this because i am Bisexual and I do often get picked on for being this way. This is terrible because it lowers our self esteems and as you said I don’t think Trump is doing a good job in making the LGBT community feel any better about themselves. I really love how you wrote cons about being gay or part of the LGBT community because I think it sort of opens people’s eyes when they are reading your writing.
I thoroughly agree with this article it would be better to save that money for creating jobs eliminating fosil fuels and getting the homeless places to live. These are just a few of the possibilities we could do with 12 billion dollars
Are you kidding me?!?!?!?! That’s not possible there is growth harmons but certainly not cocoa and sugar genes, also second two only global warming and the Zico virus ?!?

I believe that having religion would be good but I think if we’re going to accept any type of religion (not cults but religion Christian, Catholic, etc.) we should accept Muslam or any other type of religion that
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
