I think most of the world thought that, right up until the last election.

Yeah they suffered, but she made a point! And for the sake of a few hundred people who may have missed out on a prom, she's given hope to so many other gay/lesbian kids across the states that if they feel they want to be included in these events, then they have a right to.

No, rather, it has taught young LGBT people to either shut up or have a small private party, attended by hardly anyone.

It has taught school boards, that if they take this stand, they will win.  Once again, prejudice and bigotry win out over equality.

That's exactly what happened, they won, the bullies actually won.  They found someone different and made them suffer for being different and even tried to convince them and everyone else that the victim is the one in the wrong.  What is just as bad is the bullies have convinced themselves that what they have done is perfectly fine and acceptable, because it is ok to ostracize those that are different, because they deserve it
