    Sure, let's just randomly decide what words mean depending on what meaning is most convenient for us.

    I am not afraid of guys who think they are girls or vice versa. However, this is kind of like saying a person can basically misrepresent information about them. Maybe in my mind I'm not really white, but black so I should be eligible for affirmative action policies. Would you support me in my cause to fight discrimination against my racial identity?

    Were you not paying attention to the whole bit about not encouraging people to believe their delusions are real?

    Well I am not a conservative so I assume you are talking to someone else, but I am not chastising anyone for having a mental disorder. I am chastising the people who think the way you deal with it is by encouraging them to believe the delusions that come from said mental disorder are in fact the reality.

    Telling the guy who thinks the CIA is secretly broadcasting messages to his brain that it is probably true and he should do what they say because they're the CIA and you should respect authority is a bad idea because then when "Langley" tells him that he should kill his ex-girlfriend then himself he's gonna think: "Golly gee I was told to listen to them because they are the real CIA, so I guess I should do it."

    Well you missed the point all together. Yes they look happy but their plight based on their circumstances is sad.

    This accompanied the picture: Three young women dressed as men aboard an inland rivers houseboat. From an undated and un-postmarked photo post card from the early 1900s.

    This was a very poor time for many people and I can only imagine how hard it must have been to be a cross dressing woman at time in our history.

    I was having fun with this topic up to know and I find it really unfortunate that so many people get all upset over what is really no big deal.

    I will say seriously that the young lady should be treated as what she was born as until she is legally declared to be other wise.

    easy for you to say since you are not the one experiencing the feelings.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.

    That is a real problem if the teachers are delusional enough to participate.

    that just leads to the stupidity of the entire situation when the teacher's participate. 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?
    Excellent point. The school is just as guilty encouraging this nonsense.

    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?
    Because its factually inaccurate. I agree the school did not help but that doesn't change the reality that she is not a boy. She is a girl, period. To perpetuate a lie based on how someone feels and ignore basic definitions of common words is destructive and stupid.

    Its called reality. If some kid "feels" like they are Michael Jackson is society supposed to accept this lie as well?

    I hope so. We aren't going to ignore basic facts to justify someone's feelings about themselves.

    Re: Transgender senior can't be king

    Why can a girl who plans to become a transexual be allowed to be homecoming king? I don't think she should ever be recognized as a male, as she will never be one.
