From (shockingly) The Advocate:
Alito did, however, use as an example of ruling for the “little guy” his 2004 decision in favor of a high school bullying victim who was perceived as gay.
“This was a case in which a high school student had been bullied unmercifully by other students in his school because of their perception of his sexual orientation,” Alito said. “He’d been bullied to the point of attempting to commit suicide, and his parents wanted to enroll him at an adjacent public high school. And the school board said, ‘No, you can’t do that,’ and I wrote an opinion upholding their right to have him placed in a safe school, in an adjacent municipality.”
The citation is notable, considering Alito has been opposed by numerous gay rights groups, including the Human Rights Campaign and Lambda Legal.
Further evidence of the damage that our community does to itself by being so reactionary against “discrimination” and “victimization.” (See GLAAD and Gene Shalit, among thousands of other examples).
