A morsel of support
Golly, the Obama Justice Department is actually intervening in a gay case! They're even using a novel argument to do it. Gay teens in Mohawk, NY wanted to start a Gay-Straight Alliance at the high school. They were refused. The Justice Department says the school board is in violation of Title IX, the law that protects students from gender discrimination (and requires equivalent sport outlets for men and women students). The JD says that the law also covers gender stereotypes -- such as boys who are bullied for being effeminate.
