    I'm just astonished that Principal Wet Blanket had to consult the legal department to find out if he could legally discriminate against gay people.

    To me, this seems like giant "time to retire" red flag.

    I predict this guy gets in a lot of trouble and the program gets reinstated.

    Well hopefully the ACLU and LBGT organizations are already filing lawsuits. The really sad thing about it is the trauma/depression that Gray is feeling now because he feels he's to blame for being gay.

    I'm sure Amons will just say it had nothing to do with sexuality and blame it on small class size/profitability that the BSID could not afford in the current economic climate, blah blah blah.

    I hope. People need to be sent the message that hate and prejudice will not be tolerated.

    Don't lots of men in fashion/beauty at least come across as gay? If not actually being gay?

    It is definitely very discriminatory.
