Social media strategist lost job in Utah because school ‘didn’t want to be linked with homosexuality’
Homophones - as the writer of the article explains - are words that sound the same (homo = the same; phone = sound) but have a different meaning.
This teacher at a language school was fired after writing of homophones (and not of homosexuals or homophobes!) in a blog post. The School feared people would link it to homosexuality after reading the post.
… This is absolutely f@£%ed up!
The teacher said:
“people at this level of English … may see the ‘homo’ side and think it has something to do with gay sex.”
- People working in a school not knowing English.
- Homophobic people (and schools…)
