    This is very sad to see that there are still many high school kids that think that homophobic bigotry is ok. Unfortunately Ohio is just like both Pennsylvania and New York. All three are conservative states where there are many rural and outer ring suburban areas in which homophobia, racism, and anti semitism are alive and well. There are also many urban neighborhoods that harbor the same type of prejudices as well.

    Well, it is Ohio, after all. About as Republican as it gets. Expect more of this as Republicans gain control of Congress. Their idea of education is to preach anti-gay propaganda in the classroom.

    Fortunately, they don't control Internet content (yet), which was attempted during the previous Bush Administration. Kids are now exposed to a wider intellectual experience than just bigoted Ohio.

    Like in Communist China, Republicans want to stifle the Internet, to limit it to content of which they approve for political purposes. So long as the Internet exists as a free exchange of ideas, right-wingers will lose ground over time. That is why they want the Internet regulated.

    We will see if oppressive right-wing Christian fundamentalists and Republicans win in the long run, or if the free exchange of ideas will triumph. Watch for attempts to restrict the Internet in the next US Congress.

    Is this true? Where have I been living if it is.... I can't imagine people thinking its okay to teach anti gay propaganda anywhere. Seriously. I lose faith in the united states sometimes.

    You mean Democrats try to pass off PCBS "sensitivity training" as education. Also, about the censorship of the internet: see also: Joe Lieberman. Already tried.

    Actually, Ohio is quite liberal and Democratic compared to many parts of the US. See: Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Alaska, Nebraska...

    So, so tired. This state as republican as it is VOTED FOR OBAMA IN 2008!

    And as a native Ohioan I can vouch this is NOT the feelings of most Ohioan's.

    Crowds are dangerous exactly because of this: no responsibility can be ascribed. Ask each of these students whether they went along with the chant, and he/she will deny it (unless he/she is a psychopath in the making).

    How dare you pull a South Park reference out of your ass like that. So abrupt, so lacking in attribution. Like a pre-Wikipedia Dennis Miller.

    As an Ohioan...I am disgusted and amazed that this happened.......I realize that homophobia is everywhere, but normally the School Administrators on site at the game are really "iron fisted" when they react to this type of stuff...I will be shocked if heads don't roll and someone isn't suspended at the very least.....glad Eastlake LOST the game too.....that's just wrong....icon_redface.gif

    PS: POWDER BLUE for FOOTBALL uniforms? OMG! beyond the fashion mistake...try to get grass and blood stains out of that color!

    Really? Will you restate that after the election in November, when Ohio returns to its Republican heritage? Ohio is a Republican bastion, proud to be the State that has elected more Republican Presidents than any other. You are flaunting history when you suggest otherwise.

    Sporty - This is a "tradition" and has been going on for YEARS. They call the one team "powder blue faggots" and the other team chants back "halloween homos" (orange and black uniforms).

    No heads will roll...unless this is viral enough to make mainstream news. Then they might feel enough pressure to put a stop to it. But, they haven't so far.

    I think the only thing more disappointing than the original subject of this post is the flagrent display of narrowmindnesses that is so often exhibited in the gay "community." Pitiful. As much as the majority of the people in the GLBTQ community demand respect and espouse to be open-minded, they're quicker to jump to conclusions and make judgments based on generalizations and stereotypes themselves. Pathetic.

    For the record, being an Ohioian does not equate to being a backwoods hick, or a conservative - we've got more than our fair share of Democrats here. Hell, in my corner of the state we have TWO democratic parties. And being conservative does not equate to being a fool, a racist, a biggot or gay basher. Seriously, what is it with the gays and their undying loyalty to the Democratic party, anyway? Do you really think every card-carrying registered Democrat Teamster loves us all? Skip on down to the local UAW hall - the one with all the democratic party signs in front - wave your rainbow flag and hug the first burly guy you see - let me know how that works out for you. That party plays our community like pawns and we follow them en masse like sheeple and thank them with our votes for every scrap they throw our way.

    Ohio is a swing state. Not a "Republican bastion."

    Errr... the swingiest swing state in the nation?? Ohio is certainly a land of contrasts, but I think that it's nonsensical to make such a sweeping generalization. Particularly since, up here, we haven't heard too much good come out of Florida.

    As for the chanting---how dreadful.

    I agree that it's not fair to hate on all Ohioans, but using the word "fag" is a pretty damn "dumbass" thing to do.

    Simply not true, based on history. Ohio is traditionally Red, and will be Red in the 2010 election. You just don't know your history.

    This..^^

    When people start to generalize and clump a whole group of people based on the actions of the few.. You're going to run the risk of pissing more honest and people off.

    Simply put. Do not generalize and group a huge mass of people based on the actions of the few and you'll be fine.

    Friggin' hilarious... I almost spit my dinner all over the table.

    As to the topic, (A) I'd wager this shit happens in almost every state, so I wouldn't poke Ohio, and (B) Ohio is the ultimate bellweather.
