Saudi Arabia has ordered its Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice to ban students that are gay or "tom boys" from schools and universities.
The students will only be allowed to come back if they have proof that they have been "corrected" or stopped their "behavior".
Their reasoning is that this will help to stop homosexuality in Saudi Arabia, where it's a capital offense.
No one should be denied an education because of their gender identity or sexual orientation. These students cannot change who they are, nor should they have to. This is discrimination and this is wrong.
Please tell the Saudi Arabian government to not ban gay and "tom boy" students from schools!
Please do not ban gay and "tom boy" students from schools and universities. Gender identity and sexual orientation are a part of who people are, not something they can change at will. No one should be denied an education because of who they are.
Do what is right and stop this discrimination.
you have the power to create change.
