I believe this is sexual orientation discrimination and also gender discrimination.

When I was in public high school in the 70's there was a dress code and it was enforced.

What kind of dress code? I'm sure girls were allowed to wear pants, shorts, dresses, and skirts and high heels and shoes while males were only allowed to wear pants or shorts and boy's shoes. Special rights for females right? Am I correct?

All schools should require uniforms, everyone is on a equal playing ground. Rich kids wouldn't be able to wear their designer clothes to make the poor kids feel like they aren't as good as the rich ones.

I know this kid. Dealt with him when I host the Job Fairs in the Richmond area. He wasn't punished for wearing heels. He was punished for being a smart-ass and disrespecting the Principal when he was asked to comply with something totally unrelated to what he was wearing.

The uniforms should have to be gender neutral to be fair to everyone.
