It’s not just the gay boys that get bullied.

Sixteen-year old Billy Wolfe has found himself punched, pummeled, kicked and bloodied for no reason other than his peers find him queer. And now, after trying to work with the school and police, Wolfe’s Arkansas-based parents are getting litigious:

This month they sued one of the bullies “and other John Does,” and are considering another lawsuit against the Fayetteville School District. Their lawyer, D. Westbrook Doss Jr., said there was neither glee nor much monetary reward in suing teenagers, but a point had to be made: schoolchildren deserve to feel safe.

They sure do – that and chocolate milk.
