According to the complaint, the GayCoin crypto-currency arrived with a note saying: "Don't judge until you try".

"I thought, in truth, how can I judge something without trying? I decided to try same-sex relationships," the complainant wrote.

"Now I have a boyfriend and I do not know how to explain this to my parents."

I could see this happening to a school which taught a value-neutral approach to relationships in many places, so the suit is not that far-fetched.

Social media is slowly coming to the position that it is publisher and not just a platform, so these issues will keep on coming.

Interesting legal case. Does this mean that one could sue the school and university system that has been teaching the narrative of gender fluidity is a possible category due to social constructionism and that the biological markers were not relevant. What if you are suffering anxiety due being told that the world is going to end due to climate change in 12 years and this doesn't happen.

My bro has a school-friend who recently turned at the age of 56 or so. Married with kids.

School children would have a case, but university students choose.

No one argues biological markers are not relevant, but you aren't really going to discuss that in an English literature class?

University knowledge is just as bureaucratic as any other social domain. Certain disciplines tackle questions a certain way and bracket out other aspects of the same question.

I know ex alcoholics, ex smokers, ex drug addicts, ex criminals, ex obese people...
Still, I never met an ex homosexual.

GayCoin crypto-currency, eh? I really need to keep up better! And also, I know Americans sue over anything, but Russians too? Too bad!
