The Age reports that:
A Melbourne private girls’ school that prevented a lesbian student from attending the school formal with her girlfriend is being inundated with messages from irate readers around the world accusing the school of discrimination.
A private school, at a private dance for its students, should be forced to allow a sixteen year old to bring her fifteen year old sex partner?
Sadly, but not surprisingly, given the Age’s ever decreasing demographic, the school is being accused of homophobia, discrimination, etc, while the girl and her parents are presented as victims of moralising conservatism.
The only thing the girl and her parents are victims of is a bit of common sense and decency.
