A child shall lead them…

Weekes related an incident where she was mocked and laughed at by a group of female students while trying to speak to them about staying away from same-sex relationships.

“I was at this particular school telling a group of females that lesbianism is wrong. These 14-year-olds just laughed at me. To them it was just a joke,” she recalled.

“Parents need to know that same-sex relationships are a big thing out there, and it is often hard to detect because females are usually chummy with each other.
