  • many other situations, lesbians and gay men did not bring their cases to court, believing that to do so would be fruitless endeavor that would injure their children
  • 14 year old boy who had to endure his father's vocal and physical wrath. The court even rejected the father's request to have the right to “discipline” his son for vulgar ideals such as homosexuality
