A major issue being discussed is gay rights. As a mere high school student, I hear people tell me that I don't understand the issue and haven't "matured" enough to fully grasp the subject. That is a load of horse manure.
Every day, teenagers proclaim they are "in love." Some just happen to be in love with the same gender, and they shouldn't be judged for that.
Walking down the halls at Bingham High School, I lose count of all of the "public displays of affection." That is perfectly normal.
