This part "had no problem letting him go to Saturday's prom with another male" I guess made me assume, who knows?
I don't know many straight guys in high school that would have gone with another guy, but who knows.

I just don't know many straight guys that age secure enough with their own sexuality that would.

I didnt assume the guy was gay I thought it was just a joke too.
My friend took his best friend (male) To a school dance in bondage and a dog collar
the administration was not amused.....
I showed up drunk and gave the class president freak dancing lessons and got kicked out with them
High School was a blast

not sure about the gay thing either ... cross dressers are usually straight; drag queens, however, are quite gay.

dunno what a boy in a prom dress qualifies as, beyond a stunt.

Oh I know, I hope you didn't think I assumed anything. Maybe they'll be another news story about this and we can find out.

All I know for sure is, I guess the straight guys at my HS would have rather gone w/ another guy than w/ me

i went to junior prom with a Mormon, and to senior prom with my best friend who's engagement party is Saturday, in Philadelphia, and Saturday night i have Vertigo tickets for, you guessed it, Philadelphia!

going to be a big weekend.

and, looking back on so much of my life and high school life, it all seems so obvious ... yet i was so confused then. it never occurred to me that i was the problem.

i did have lots of fun at both proms.

and i wore a tux. natch.

You rebel verte! From what I understand, this is what the prom is all about. We have a dance in our last year, but it isn't a big hoo-ha like an American prom seems to be. It is though, a last ditch formal occasion to get your whole year together, dressed as adults, for possibly the last function you will attend as a 'young person'. So it's a mix of roles for those attending. You dress to the nines, you get your hair done, some of the kids do something grand like one boy in my year dressing as Dracula, another wearing a bear suit. Some of my friends and I sat with some teachers in the foyer drinking alcohol. I ran out of smokes and my history teacher let me bum hers. She later on ran a car load of us to the pub, and I believe she arranged to ferry around some more students afterwards to various after parties and bars. I dont think she was the only one.

I find it curious, yet natural, for us to wonder if this boy is gay, or a cross dresser, or just an attention seeker. Yet, we all must know this doesn't actually matter. The real problem here is an assumption being seen as a bad thing. Whatever the reason for him doing this, should not be the point, nor should it change how wrong this is deemed to be - when it isn't really a big deal at all.

principals aren't all cut from the same block, dread. you surely cannot adopt that reaction when it wasn't at you.
