What should a bochur in a mesivta do if he has a teacher in the English department who wishes to discusss gay rights with the students?
And the answer is, he should go to the rosh yeshiva. He should go complain to the rosh yeshiva.
Now, that’s a very painful question; it’s not so simple because I know from experience that the people in charge do like this. The rosh yeshiva will tell you, “Talk to the principal.” So you go to the principal but he wants to keep his teachers; he doesn’t want to cause too much opposition, so he tries to soften the problem. “The teacher didn’t mean it,” he says to the boy. “He didn’t intend it.”
So now the boy now is stymied. He can’t go back to the rosh yeshiva and the principal already had put him off; so the boy now has to find other ways.
Now, I’ll tell you the other ways; I have other ways but I won’t say them in public because you might be the high school principal himself. So if you want, when you see me in private, I’ll tell you what to do.
