The nation is breathing a heavy sigh of relief this Valentine’s Day, in light of the announcement that Copper Hills High School on the southwestern fringe of suburban Salt Lake City will allow the exchange of “Singing Valentines” between doting students of the same gender.
There had been some confusion about the issue, the Salt Lake Tribune reports. Fliers concerning the school’s annual choir fundraiser — in which students make contributions so choir students will belt out love songs for other students — contained the disclaimer: “Sorry, no same-sex delivery.”
Some students and concerned citizens did not like the proviso. To them, it smacked of bullying and anti-gay sentiment.
