I'm not sure about this case that Lawrence King's family has brought upon the school in which he was shot. He was clearly shot because he is gay, and it was a hate crime. Of that there is no doubt.
Now the family is bringing charges against the school because they allowed him to wear "feminine clothes," etc., which made him, of course, stand out at the school.
They're blaming the school?
Lawrence was clearly expressing himself how he felt and thought and knew about himself with make-up and clothing. It was a choice. He had every right to express it, without fear of being discriminated against.
Ideal? Yes...real, no.
