Stop the usage of "that's so gay" at LSE

Target: The principal of Lincoln Southeast High School

Petition Background (Preamble):

As a former student at Lincoln Southeast High School, I know of, and am ashamed of how many times I heard the phrase "that's so gay" to describe a student's dislike of an assignment a teacher was handing out. It is very derogatory towards the LGBT students when a phrase like that is used.

Sirdeaner Walker survives her son Carl Walker-Hoover, who died by suicide after enduring constant bullying at school.
44.1 percent of LGBT students reported being physically harassed at school.
60.8 percent of LGBT students felt unsafe at school because of their sexual orientation.

Petition:

We, the undersigned, call on Dr. Patrick Hunter-Pirtle to make it that a mandatory detention be assigned to any student caught using the phrase "that's so gay" in an inappropriate manner on Lincoln Southeast High School property.
