wimycat, The victory belonged to the liberals when it was ruled by fiat from the bench that homosexuality was just one form of our "diversity" and therefore a protected behavior to be celebrated. I'm sure you recall the pundits talking endlessly about the slippery slope. Guess what? They were right. We're getting closer to the bottom of that slope every day. There is now nothing that can stop the momentum other than the people shouting "NO MORE, THATS IT, I HAVE HAD ENOUGH". You or I are not going to convince the left that they are wrong. We can't even convince the people here that the liberals are wrong. We have played on the unleveled playing field by their rules to get where we are today. It's not going to get any better by continuing the game under these circumstances. There comes a time when biting and eye gouging mean survival. The legal victory happened years ago and it didn't go our way.

I see you're looking at it from a different perspective than I am. You're looking at it as part of the overall cultural war.
I'm looking at it from a one-on-one human perspective. No matter what my feelings are about homosexuality, if I was given the job of telling a young girl who, from all we know so far, did nothing to these other girls, that she was being relegated to the broom closet to dress out for gym, I couldn't do it. It goes against my conscience and I would refuse to do it. They would have to fire me. Maybe you could look her in the face and tell her, but I couldn't. And I don't think Jesus would do it. Because it's wrong. Jesus would have a lot of other things to say to this young lady, but He'd also have a lot of things to say to those other girls, too, about to treat other people. Because I don't believe that the girls are uncomfortable, I believe they don't like her whether she's a lesbian or not.
I guess it never occurred to anyone to sit down with all of these girls and talk it out. There were other ways to resolve the situation without kicking her out of the locker room.
