The Woman Is Requested to Pay

I heard this on Morning Edition on NPR this morning, and the Houston Chronicle also has the story, Texas school district nixes 'cross-dressing day'.

Seems the schools in this school district have a turn-about type tradition, years old, in which the girls ask the boys out. "TWIRP" they call it - "The Woman Is Requested to Pay." But they also have, for one day at school, a day where girls dress as boys and boys dress as girls. This got one Bible-thumping gay-hater's panties (not briefs, not boxers, surely very pink, very frilly panties) in a wad: "You just keep playing with it and it becomes customary", it "pushes the homosexual agenda", etc. According to the story, the stupid bitch had already gotten permission to excuse her little right-wing automatons from such faggery on that day, but the school board went ahead and cancelled the whole thing.

And the shit frosting on this shit cake? They replaced it, with "Camo Day," in which the students are to dress in camo, like soldiers. How fitting, really. Maybe they could let just one or two kids still cross-dress, and all gang up and kick the crap out of them in a special ceremony? Maybe they could have, instead of homecoming king and queen, homecoming general and concubine?

i'm with the religious folks on this one. cross-dressing is over the line, for a school-sponsored activity. acceptance and tolerance are two very different concepts, and promotion is definitely acceptance (by a government institution).

camo seems a little too far right (but definitely within reason) - maybe they could replace 'cross-dressing day' with something innocuous like 'gender affirmation day':)

Promotion is acceptance - excellent point. You've convinced me.

By the way, any school districts that promote, and therefore accept, occultism by allowing students to dress in witch, devil or monster costumes also need a big smackdown.

AND, that goes double for any schools out there in Jesusland that promote, and therefore accept, devil worship via Satanic games such as Dungeons & Dragons. I mean, that's a role-playing game. It's far beyond some dudes in bras and lipstick fondling their giant fake tits and yucking it up. Those pasty-face RPG geeks actually take on other personalities! Possibly even of other genders; possibly even of OTHER RACES! And some of them are even explicitly evil! And not just regular evil, but Chaotic Evil!Holy Mother, where will it end?!

Hopefully it's obvious, but I'm referring to Halloween festivities in that second paragraph.

i'm glad that your convinced;)

i see what you mean, though. maybe they took things a little too far.

just like my kids' high school takes things too far. they actively promote homosexual ACCEPTANCE (not tolerance) by condoning and supporting clubs devoted to the support of openly gay students. other students are encouraged to join and cheer these poor unfortunate souls on. the theme is definitely 'straightforward' acceptance:)

i'm not saying that anti-gay clubs should be allowed either, because that would be INTOLERANT. which is also not a good thing. however, i am definitely opposed to school sponsored clubs for questionable lifestyle choices (in leu of counseling).

the schools should steer clear of things that are overtly offensive to many students and parents, and allow these things to develop in the private sector, properly disassociated from public institutions.
