Another poster said you are born "gay" but I do not believe that. I believe that people that "choose" to be gay want that excuse so people will accept them and think that it is normal to be that way.
It wasn't until the late 70's or early 80's that homosexuality was removed from the mental health disorder diagnosis ..... (it is gross and not normal is you ask me) ..... why would one guy want to do anything to another? (yuck!) ...

Really? Then did you choose to be straight? Did you actually have a dilemma in your teen years where you had to pick between males and females to pursue? For some reason, I doubt it.
Your last comment is just immature. It's equivalent to saying "eww, how can people eat Sushi? Just so disgusting and foreign!"
No one chooses their sexual orientation.

How true...not everyone is GAY or wants to be GAY, or wants anything to do with GAYS or their lifestyle...so as you said...grow up and get over it..NOT EVERYONE wants to accept that behavior or sexual orientation...so why is it GAYS can say grow up, GAYS can protest and demand that others accept THEIR beliefs...yet straights who want nothing to do with them are [INSERT NAME CALLING HERE].
Just get over it...if your gay..be gay, if you think your gay..whatever...stop whining and shut up. Go find a school that will accept you for who you are. Go find friends that will love you for who you are...etc....and stop thinking the world owes you something...and accept that GAY will never be fully accepted by everyone. Thats THAT!!

One thing that particularly disturbs me about this is the 'seems gay' part, and by the looks of the previous comments it's a common concern as well as the bigotry displayed by the private school.
Don't they realise the bullying this could cause, the repression of feelings of those there that are 'in the closet' as it were? This is going to cause a lot of children to be incredibly messed up in the future that attend that school.

It is a private institution that gets no public funds. People pay to attend this school and the school can make whatever rules it wants.
I may not like it, you may not like it, but guess what?? No tax dollars, no government funding goes to this school. It is their call.....no matter how disgusting some of us find it.
