    'Barbie is a lesbian' shirt case settled
    NEW YORK (AP) — An openly gay teenager received a $30,000 settlement from the city over her suspension for wearing a "Barbie is a Lesbian" T-shirt to school, her attorney announced Thursday.
    Natalie Young, now 15 and in high school, wore the shirt to middle school in April 2002, leading school officials to send her home for the day despite the absence of any official dress code.

    The teen said the settlement should make life easier on other openly gay schoolchildren: "I think they should feel more comfortable about who they are."

    Young was pulled from class by the school principal and ordered to sit in an office until she changed the shirt. When she refused, she was suspended for the day.

    Young's lawyer, Ron Kuby, filed the federal suit last June, alleging the incident was part of a series of discriminatory incidents.

    Resolving the suit without litigation was "the appropriate decision," city lawyer Donna M. Kasbohm said. The city Department of Education agreed to establish a policy on student dress as part of the deal.

    good for her but i don't understand the $30,000 award to her. if she truly stands for the cause she believes in, what's with the dollar amount? Attorney fees? Then I can understand.

    I always thought Barbie or Ken were homosexual. Now the truth is out! I mean, come on, Mitch was the pregnant one that got pulled from Walmart shelves because she wasn't married. Barbie never got pregnant but you know sure enough that condoms or the pill don't work that well. When will children catch on to this.
