After gay high school student Tyreese Maye wore a pair of bright red high heels to school, administrators told him he had to take them off since he was causing "a distraction." A spokesperson said that it was partly a safety issue, but a dozen other female students wore heels the same day to support Tyreese without any repercussions. Students have started protesting outside of the school claiming gender discrimination. (Hat tip to Viktor)
