    And this has no bearing on kids and their employment future. Thinking it does is beyond rediculous IMHO.
    The BEST thing it could teach them is about the process of complaint. It is not silly **** to insist that a girl isn't eligible to be elected to a boy's position. While I agree that the school has already bent the rules, there are lines. There are rules in life that get bent allll the time for very good reasons. If you don't think it's important that your child learn the difference, then that's on you.

    I think it is silly ****. And what process was used here to teach with. Maybe I missed it.

    I think the process was "adults freaking out about silly **** and ruining everything for the kids in order to make some ridiculous point."

    You know this thread made me think about to my senior year and who was our homecoming king and queen. I honestly don't remember and that was only 3ish years ago.

    edit: I do remember we got a guy on the homecoming queen final list, but sadly he didn't win.

    Why is everyone overlooking the possibility that the kids voted for "her" as homecoming king as part of a cruel joke. Having taught in public school for 11 years, I have seen first hand how mean spirited and closed minded some kids can be. I think it is somewhat naive to assume that these kids voted for this transgendered student out of some lofty sentiment.

    and just how did not allowing this kid to be homecoming king ruin everything? did they cancel homecoming over it? as has been said, it's not that big a deal and I doubt that many of the kids at that school actually gave a rat's ass who the homecoming king and queen were.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    245 posts...about a prom.

    1) Nothing wrong with a school saying that gender is an issue

    2) Nothing bright in a school making a big deal out of it. If they had ignored it and let it happen, much less of a big deal to people.

    3) Why do people with gender identification issues create such strong emotion from other people? I mean, really...on the list of important things, what gender some one identifies as simply does not make the list.

    When a poster's argument to me is, "I think it is silly ****," I don't have much else to say. Why would I try to convince you otherwise? Rock on.

    If it's truly no big deal, then why is the school making a big deal out of it? I think they picked a rather ridiculous issue on which to stand their principles.

    Again the word sex has not changed at all in any way shape or form. You are trying to parse the wording to mean something it does not. Nor have you provided a single defintion that supports your claim

    Until you can explain how it is different it is not an argument.

    Gender is tied to sex directly in each of the definitions provided by myself and others.

    More definitions:

    a. The condition of being female or male; sex.

    20; often the classification correlates in part with sex or animateness.
