A wonderful display of LGBT pride from a high school student has been soured because the parents refused to support the initiative. Atascocita High School in Humble, Texas has never had a pride section in its annual yearbook, but this year’s editor-in-chief Kyle Armour wanted to step away from the traditional concept. The section, titled Prideful Eagles, featured coming out stories from kids at the school. This moving gesture was ruined by none other than students’ parents, who took to social media and a local forum expressing their disgust and embarrassment about it. “They need to throw those books in a pile and burn them, like THEY do the America flag.” Kimberly Hicks Armour, the editor-in-chief’s mother, said her son had wanted to show the diversity of the school in order to make each student feel welcome and accepted. His goal was to be as inclusive as possible for the entire student and to make everyone feel important in the book,” she said, but instead the boy was attacked and abused online.“People were saying he was dumb, not smart, that I should not be proud of who he is. I’m very proud of who he is,” the mother adds, “He did take a stand and make something diverse for the community and to our school.”
