A HOAX! High School Studen was NOT expelled after all...

...via the Oregonian. "West Linn High School student Brandon Flyte told the world on his Web site that he was expelled for leaving a homosexual "snuggle scene" in a class film project.
It wasn't true, and now the teen is in real trouble with school officials because of the resulting turmoil surrounding his claim."
"He has disrupted the school. This is clearly a behavior we don't find acceptable," said West Linn-Wilsonville Superintendent Roger Woehl. Rest of Story here.
You can read Brandon's response over at Towleroad.

Hmm...I'm not sure why a student, much less a straight student, would do something like this but it definitly call attention to homophobia and strict policies regarding sexual orientation in our public school system.
