Can't identify any of the bullies? Smells fishy.

You know what?

Good for her! In the meantime, he should take self-defense classes.

Young is known as a flamboyant dresser and Larry Yarrell, the Tech principal, said school staff had been trying to get him to "tone down" his accessories.

"If you wear female apparel, then kids are kids and they're going to say whatever it is that they want to say," Yarrell [school principal] told The Star. "Because you want to be different and because you choose to wear female apparel, it may happen. In the idealistic society, it shouldn't matter. People should be able to wear what they want to wear."
If a young gay dresses "flamboyantly", and the school has advised him to "tone it down", he has a role in the cause and effect dynamic of this situation. His mom is not without a role in this scenario, too.

Homosexuality is not normal. Flair is not normal. A male dressing like a girl is not normal. Calling your child "Dynasty" is not normal.

This kid is riddled for life. Gender neutralization and gender bending has societal consequences, as it should. I don't feel sorry for him at all.

This is something gays, trans, cross, whatevers don't seem to understand. Don't shove your freakiness on others and they won't care what you do behind closed doors. In other words, keep it behind closed doors.

Homosexuality is something that should not be flaunted in the school environment. The principal is correct in trying to get him to dress more appropriately. If his mother were smart, she would advise him the same thing--maybe she has but I doubt it.
