12-Year-Old Girl "Damaged" By Brokeback Mountain

12-year-old Jessica Turner and her grandparents are suing the Chicago Board of Education because her 8th grade substitute teacher played Brokeback Mountain for her class. From various news reports, it looks like the family is seeking between $400,000 to $500,000 in damages. Here's more:

Richardson said his granddaughter was traumatized by the movie and had to undergo psychological treatment and counseling.

In 2005, Richardson complained to school administrators about reading material that he said included curse words.

"This was the last straw," he said. "I feel the lawsuit was necessary because of the warning I had already given them on the literature they were giving out to children to read. I told them it was against our faith."

Wow. I knew Brokeback Mountain was controversial but "traumatizing"? Really?

Just... wow.
