@ TylerDurden:


Would you be defending their "training wheel" mentality if the excluded students were black?

No, I would not. There is a general consensus about racism which is absent in the discussion of homosexuality. This means that young people are not subjected to the same pressures and conflicting loyalties in that case. We are not talking about right or wrong here, but about the stress it put on these seniors' immature worldview and whether they should be blamed for being immature at that stage in their lives. I say no, and am willing to wait for them to become truly independent before judging them.

The remainder of your comments about personal responsibility, etc etc show such a complete lack of knowledge and understanding of the state of mind of most high school seniors that I can only conclude you were a goth or an emo!
