Really, it is a catch 22. Without, as was mentioned, a safe haven, especially in a place like New york, It would be very difficult to live a normal life (i.e. Beatings, threats, stereotypes tec.) without some kind of safe haven, but, as you all mentioned, ignorance would be allowed to grow. However, just because the school is THERE, only 100 kids are going there and there are a LOT of fucking people in New york. Not EVERY gay guy/girl is going there. I myself wish that, in texas, where I live, an EXTREMELY homophobic state, I wish there was a high school like that. I am so SICK of being called lesbitch, homo, Faggotmaster, and every other damn name ( Dyke) that they can think of. I'm gay, not a fucking... I dont even know what! Also, how long do you think it will be before some super christian group decides that god told them to destroy the high school with bombs? Of course, it would just be homophobia rearing its ugly little head.
