    Someone finally takes tough measures to combat homophobia:

    Police in Rock Hill, S.C., say a mother shaved her son’s head and dressed the boy in women’s clothes before “parading him around” a local Walmart as a form of punishment.

    When officers arrived at the store, the Herald reported, they found the 10-year-old boy wearing a tutu, women’s boots, a women’s undergarment and a T-shirt “with various permanent marker writing underneath,” according to a police report.

    The child’s head was shaved “in an unusual manner, bald on top with a patch of wig on the front of his head,” the report noted. Adding to a spectacle, the word “BAD” was scrawled in black marker on the back of the boy’s head.

    Police said the mother told them she was “punishing her son for fighting and making homophobic remarks in school.”

    The child was having behavioral problems, she added, and “corporal punishment has been ineffective, so she was attempting to embarrass” him into good behavior, according to the police report.

    I have been in some Walmarts where the kid wouldn't have looked out of place.

    The photos in the link of the kid who got the "Benjamin Button" treatment as punishment cracked me up.

    As if taking the kid into a Wal-mart under any circumstances wasn't bad enough ....

    Could be worse. There could be a McDonald's in the Wal-Mart.
