This was a tragic misunderstanding on both their parts. How was Brandon supposed to get Larry to back off? How was Larry supposed to know what effect his actions were having on Brandon? I know that many will not understand it when I say that I believe that Larry really just didn't know. I also believe Larry was a Transexual and incapable of any "Male" reactions that he could relate to. I think he regarded it as just pure fun "So what's the big deal anyway!" While Brandon was having his male pride shredded to bits. And No teacher felt the responsibility to step in "The Union says it's not my job!" and the situation was allowed to progress to it's ultimate outcome>

Still always think it's a shame when a law is needed to be passed for something which ought to be within an organisation's policies anyway.
Anti-discrimination is hardly stripping society of male and female distinctions... think it's a bit of a melodramatic stretch to be saying that. In a lot of areas of life, especially education and work, gender isn't as important as some would like to think. Why can't people just be people first and taken as found, not on mostly irrelevant constructs
