I agree with your comments about allies, but in defense of GLSEN (because my daughter is one of their ambassadors) they focus quite extensively on bisexuals and transgenders. A huge chunk of the kids chosen for the ambassador program were trans and/or bi, and the education program they went through focused a LOT on trans and bi issues.

Notsomuch asexuality, that's true, although I'd have to ask my daughter about that to be certain. Of course, that's lacking in education *everywhere.*

My kids' GSA is very VERY conscious of the problems with Ally Week (and that consciousness comes from my daughter's connection with GLSEN -- they were the ones who educated her on the exact ally issues you discuss. She was the only cis/straight ambassador both years she served.)

But yeah, it should definitely not be a rah-rah allies week.
