AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
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.
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.

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.

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.
a. The condition of being female or male; sex.
20; often the classification correlates in part with sex or animateness.

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
