    UPDATE The NYT has some more info on the kid whose school outed him to his parents.

    As Thomas McLaughlin tells it, the trouble began when his eighth-grade science teacher overheard him refusing to deny to another boy that he was gay. It got worse that afternoon, when his guidance counselor called his mother at work to tell her he was homosexual.

    “The assistant principal called me out of seventh period, asked if my parents knew I was gay, and when I said no, she said I had till 3:40 to tell them or the school would,” said Thomas, a 14-year old student at Jacksonville Junior High School in Arkansas.

    The ACLU is pursuing this.
