Australian man sues prestigious St. Peters College in South Australia, claiming he was subject to “repeated sexual harassment and verbal abuse” over a period of 2 1/2 years: “He claims the bullying began after he told a school friend he was a homosexual, resulting in other students repeatedly calling him a ‘faggot’. The bullying, he says, was exacerbated by a debilitating eye condition which left him with a distorted and narrow field of vision. ‘(He) was also subjected to physical intimidation by other students, including one student withdrawing two metal rods from his bag and holding them up in a threatening manner,’ the papers say.
