..........It's all a part of growing up, is it not? There are some things that just are, and we've got to learn to get used to them. Getting used to them and taking them for what they are makes us stronger..............

Your whole argument is centered on a presumed normalcy for homosexuality and that with that assumption the "uncomfortable" girls in the locker-room should not be sheltered from something that is as normal as wings on birds and to shield them from the glories of diversity is to do them an injustice. Correct?

Incorrect. My argument is centered on basic human fairness. The girl who was punished did nothing to warrant the punishment. She was punished because of what a few people thought might happen because of her sexual preference. Further, even if what those people thought might happen---that other girls might feel uncomfortable---actually happened, that alone was not enough to justify their punishment of this girl.
