    But the kids voted for this person to be king.

    If a very feminine pretty girl(real girl not screwed up liberal definition of girl) was told that she could not be king would you say "But the kids voted this person to be king"?

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I honestly don't think it is that big of a deal. It is not like they running for the President of the USA.

    At the risk of playing devil's advocate, I think the school needs to make a firm decision and stand by it. The student stated that all the teachers refer to him/her using male pronouns. He/she is already allowed to wear the male band uniform and has been given permission to wear the male graduation gown. Why is the student allowed to identify themself as male in some situations at school and not at others?

    Given that the school didn't put their foot down on any of the other issues, I don't see why they should be able to here. The student body voted for Oak. What would it really hurt to let the vote stand? It's not as though the school is saying that a female MUST be crowned over a male who had more votes. Kids are very perceptive of social issues, why not let this run its course?

    Yes. Why not?

    Tell me the downside of having a female homecoming king.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    I guess the lesson here is to nip that **** in the butt when it starts instead of letting it go on.

    You say that because you see transgenderism as something that is somehow wrong.

    Where's waldo. BUZZ! Trick question they all are except for Bob, Jim and Ralph


    Check out the biceps on some of these "GUYS."

    Ignore the heterophobics in our midst they have trouble with any kind of gender identification that is even semi normal.

    There is one thing you might work on though, and that is use of the slang word for vagina because the use of the P word might offend the sensibilities of some.

    Not you under stand, I would have freaked only had you used the dreaded C word which I never ever use, and this old guy who's been up the street and down the ally on many a dark and stormy night I find it's use offensive in the first degree. Just a friendly caution.

    There is precedent.

    Work That Tiara, Boy! - washingtonpost.com

    (article about gay male homecoming queen)

    "Officially, the university is "very comfortable with it. We're fine," spokesman Daniel Walsch said. The school does not require participants in the Mr. and Ms. Mason pageant to compete along precise gender lines, he said.

    "It was just for fun," Allen, 22, said over coffee at the Johnson Center, where he was congratulated by classmates with hugs and squeals. "In the larger scheme of things, winning says so much about the university. We're one of the most diverse campuses in the country, and . . . we celebrate that."

    Oy gevalt, so those who want transgendered people to have equal rights are "heterophobics" now?
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.
