Let him go.
Who cares.
I'm sure some teen will "take care of him/her" one way or another......just let it run it's course. No special treatment and no holding him/her back.

We had a boy named Jordan who wore a dress to prom, that was over 10 years ago. What is the big deal? If that is how he chooses to express himself, trying to stop that expression is only going to make it a harder time for everyone involved.

And over 600 students supported his right to wear a dress and heels. The school knew he was a cross dresser. Now at Prom the school is going to say, sorry you can't be a cross dresser at THIS school function. I just don't get it. Let the kid be. I say continue with your education and work hard to accomplish your dreams and goals. If you want to be a Fashion Designer, go for it and don't stop working towards that goal.

I wonder if the Scottish wear man thongs under their man dresses? I heard one say that he wore his man dress into battle playing the bagpipes and that he could poop while marching and just keep going. He said he used to luagh when the guy behind him would scream when he went squish in the piles he left.

Next time just call it a kimono - which, like kilts, men wear - or some sht. The bigots won't know what to do.

In the meantime this furor over his dress will, strangely, yield a suit.

Paging Lambda Legal. Paging the ACLU....

OK that's just gross.

I have heard that all true Scotsmen go "commando" under their kilt...er...Man Dress.

No suit. It has been resolved. He is allowed to wear the dress.

If true I am somewhat disappointed. It's better to get civil damages levied against these schools that even attempt such stuff, because it will dissuade other bigot administrators from trying the same sht.

Actually I'm rather pleased to see this taken care of without the need for legal action. It shows a certain level of growth.

"Handbag"? The 70s were over some time ago.

Little black dress = little black purse. It's the only sensible thing.
