As a gay man, I am insulted by this program. Chinese people are very anti gay and we should ban anything Chinese from our schools. The only issue of any importance is Gay rights. A society should be judged on how it accomoadates Gay citizens. Gay citizens should be held in highest regard since it is in the Gay population that all advances are made. The non gay population exists merely to populate, the Gay population is where societal advancement comes from.
