Either you believe that all of ancient Greece was genetically predisposed to homosexuality, or you are forced to reconcile that there is a cultural social component to "it". The wider it gains acceptance, the further it heralds itself. Do I think that "being gay" is just a fad? Certainly history across all cultures dismisses the notion. Do I believe that a subculture of rebellion to social norms and a forced presence in all media, laws, and an honest, earnest desire for multicultural acceptance in our special brand of society has an influence? Damn skippy.
I believe some people are certainly predisposed to an attraction they cannot control... but the human genome has been mapped for decades without hide nor hair of a "gay gene"... despite the billions in research to produce such. I think some people are certainly hormonally influenced somewhere along the way before being sentient... Christ... just pick anyone from the LPGA and I can show you the androgynous supposition of misplaced hormones. Doesn't seem like you have to be a rocket scientist to work the math there.
Will anyone who is not genetically predisposed accept ANYTHING I have posited here? Not a chance. They will just walk right by the history of the world... they will discount this as madness.
THIS IS SPARTA!!!
Speaking of homo-eroticism...

She should have the character to not attend the prom instead of ruining it for the rest of the entire student body. Since her beef is with the administration she should focus there. This country does recognize the union between gays so until it does they should stroke each other in private. There are those that don't object to gays and there are those would kill them if they knew they could get away with it. So perhaps she avoided a royal ass beating at the end of the night in the parking lot. Homosexuality is still considered to be a severe mental disorder as is pedophelia and beastiality.
Think if Trump get elected how much resistance he will face with in all phases of our country from people to military to politicians. He must not win.
Your post could just as easily have been said about racial integration of schools, by the way. Lots of people's argument against that was "why don't these uppity blacks just stop ruining things for everyone when everything is fine the way it is? They're just being selfish."
And the threat of violence from others is not a reason to give up a fight for equality. The public school is supposed to keep all of its students safe to the best of their ability without regard to their own prejudices or beliefs. This school board put that young lady's safety in potentially more danger from a larger amount of her classmates by canceling the prom than her showing up for the prom as she wanted ever could have. Think about it, what would make someone more upset, having to share a special event with someone they don't like, or not being able to go to the special event at all?
