Is Massachusetts’s transgender/cross-dressing bill dangerous? Ask Larry King’s family.
A California lawsuit claims the school and social worker failed to tone down the flamboyant behavior of 15-year-old Larry King who was killed by fellow student Brandon McInerney while at school. Now 17, McInerny pleaded guilty this week to second-degree murder.
McInerny’s attorneys claim he “had reached an emotional breaking point after King made repeated, unwanted sexual advances toward him and other boys.” The Huffington Post reports:
"In the weeks leading up to the shooting, school administrators allowed King to wear heels and makeup because federal law provides the right of students to express their sexual orientation."
After the tragic killing, King’s family sued several agencies for failing to tone down the boy’s “flamboyant behavior.”
"King's family has settled a wrongful death lawsuit against the school district, McInerney, a gay rights organization, a shelter and others. The suit claimed that everyone from King's teacher to his social worker failed to urge the effeminate teen to tone down flamboyant behavior."
Meanwhile, back on the east coast, Massachusetts promotes flamboyant behavior by passing a bill protecting transgender and cross-dressing individuals.
So what’s it going to be folks? How do we prevent more tragedies like the shooting of Larry King in school?
Should we encourage cross-dressing or sue the folks who promote it?
