Note to public school educators: When taking elementary-age kids on a field trip to a restaurant, maybe it shouldn’t be gay-themed one that needs to print up a special menu for them because its real one is too raunchy.
As in, gay-sex raunchy. Because the restaurant is a noted gay hangout, full of rainbow flags and homosexual double-entendre.
A Broward County, Fla. school board member thought it would be a good, multicultural idea to chaperone a trip to to Rosie’s Bar and Grill, exposing other people’s children to the promisicuous good times of gay culture.
Sarah Leonardi, also a high school teacher, even went so far as to proudly post pictures form the trip on Twitter on Oct. 27. The children involved were from Wilton Manors Elementary School.
Items on the normal menu at Rosie’s Bar and Grill include the “Left One” chicken breast sandwich, “’Cause sometimes the left ones are bigger!” Other favorites include the “Rhoda Cowboy,” “Miley High Club” and the “Young Ranch Hand.”
Leonardi’s ill-advised Twitter post was immediately bombarded with negative comments from people who had a problem with exposing young children to gay sexual innuendo, particularly in light of other gay propaganda being exposed at other schools across the country.
Broward Public County Public Schools quickly went into damage-control mode, issuing a statement on Oct. 28 that the students did not see the restaurant’s regular menu but instead viewed “a student-friendly paper menu that has three child-friendly choices.”
“They learn about the types of jobs involved in operating a restaurant, how to pay for their meal, and how to leave a tip for the service they receive,” the district’s statement goes on, sidestepping why a more family-friendly restaurant wasn’t the destination.
Leonardi was defiant, telling the Miami Herald that she stands by her decision to take part in the field trip.
“As a School Board member, I am committed to staying engaged with my community. I’m always proud to join classes for field trips and events, especially when our schools are connecting with the vibrant small businesses in my district,” she said
