Exactly, is there such a thing as "normal" in high school? I hated high school , couldn't wait to leave. Sometimes it still feels like certain situations are like high school revisited.

I was a "reject" who never went to my prom, so I have no idea what went on. It was a long time ago too, I'm sure a guy in a dress wouldn't have been accepted.

Kilts are and have long been Scottish formal wear.

Not that I'm biased in favor of kilts.

Or anything.

i went to the prom with one of my best girl pals. she didn't have a boy at the time, and my boyfriend was from out of town and was graduating that night, so we decided to be each other's date. we got one of our guy friends to chauffeur us in his grandmother's buick.

no public nuisance charges were filed.

I think you have to have an IQ of 80 and an antisocial personality disorder to be a school administrator.

No kidding. That's awfully extreme, I'd say. God, a girl I know got a speeding ticket that was about $80...speeding fines are less than something like this? That's a bit stupid.

Exactly. Honestly, these school administrators are from the same generation full of people who, when they were kids, would streak through the halls during senior year (my parents recall a kid doing that at their school) or who would dance in ways that the generation before them saw as "suggestive" and "sexually charged". The guys would wear their hair long. I bet if we went back through those school administrators' pasts, we could find some things just as crazy as what this boy did that they did when they were in school. So do they have any room to be talking?

It's a guy in a dress. It's dancing. You'll live.

this article doesn't specify that the student was gay. reading it, i was under the impression that he did it as a joke. and you know what? it's funny. it's the prom for crying out loud, let the kids blow off a little steam.

i agree with melon. freedom of speech and expression can only be taken so far in schools today. my daughter was recently sent home from school when she wore a t-shirt that read "school sucks." i had to leave my job to go pick her up.

i was told it was "disruptive to the teaching environment."

I actually smoked pot at my high school prom. That's right, we lit up on a balcony on the building we had the prom in. We didn't get in trouble. Of course none of the guys wore a dress........but quite honestly I don't think we would have given a damn if they had. We weren't bored, to say the least.

That's true, it doesn't really specify he's gay

This part "had no problem letting him go to Saturday's prom with another male" I guess made me assume, who knows? I'm way out of touch w/ HS these days, maybe guys do go together.
