Good grief...I was gay in high school and adapted to the norm. Give me a break. This person is only looking for attention. If he is that gay, then he needs to get psychologically examined to be screened for sexual orientation reassignment.
Way too much. People pushing the envelope. I NEED ATTENTION!

I saw this thread and the first thing I thought of was those platform shoes I wore to my high school prom. What was I thinking? Ah, but that was the style back then. Problem was, that wasn't the worst part of my outfit.
A teacher notified the school principal and said that the boy’s high heels were distracting to the classroom. Principal Bob Heilmann reports there was name calling, so he instructed the young man to remove the shoes.
“As a principal of a high school, I have to take the paternal side as well, I have to make sure he’s going to be okay,” Heilmann told Fox, adding he was worried the student would be subjected to bullying. “Anytime anyone goes out from, quote, ‘the norm,’ or anytime anyone wants to make a statement, you have to be willing to take what comes with it.”
Fox spoke with lots of Riverview High School students, many of whom said they viewed the environment there as open and accepting. “I think it wasn’t really that big of a deal. If he wants to do it, then he can do it,” said sophomore Sarah Strawn. But not all classmates were supportive of the unnamed teenager’s choice. “I don’t think guys should wear heels. Personally, that’s my opinion,” said junior Kjai Betts.
Some students organized a small protest to recognize what had happened to the guy in heels. “One boy wore a dress on Monday and after we chatted about it, he decided not to,” Heilmann said, adding that the student caved and changed his clothes. “I was concerned about his safety.”
The guy who sported heels was not punished for his actions.
