The wife and I were eating downtown tonight and when we exited the restaurant, there was a crowd down the sidewalks. My wife asked what it was for and we were told East Homecoming Parade. We stood and watched and what is wrong with the students who chose homecoming court candidates? Or do the students still choose it? Not one of the girls were pretty. I am hoping this was not the best they could offer. I told the young girl next to me, who said she was a senior, that she should have been chosen. Come to think of it, all of the ones watching looked better than the painted up ugly girls who rode down the street.

I agree!! They were probably all preps. If you are a prep you get picked in anything. No matter what you look like if you're a prep that's all that matters. I don't know what is wrong with out kids these days!! It makes me sick!

WOW! What is wrong with kids today? People like you two are what is wrong! Why do looks matter? WAY to much emphasize put on young girls today. When I was in school it was always the prettiest of the pretty. Never the not so pretty ones. I think it is awesome, if what you say is true, that they went with girls who aren't the types you see on tv today.

No, I'm not ugly. I'm 26. No, I don't have ugly children as I have no children.

Appears someone got their feeling hurt..What a jerk, there was not a ugly girl in the court and yes there may be prettier girls, there are always going to be prettier, smarter, more likeable but hopefully everybody will have their special day and onions to you with your childish post.

Congratulations to East High on a big win. Go Canes!

I can't believe anyone would get on topix and talk about these kids. What kind of an idiot are you? Who the hell bases anything on looks any more. You are a damned idiot.

Haaaa. Real cute. I'm one of the girls that was on the court. And I think all the girls including myself are beautiful. Get a life. You're married, stopping making immature comments about high schoolers. GROW UP.

1:All of the girls weren't just beautiful, but some of the most talented individuals I've seen.
2:I'd pick those girls any day over the girls everyone calls "pretty". I'd rather these girls represent East's homecoming court over the girls that wear more makeup than a clown and dumb as a rock.
3:They actually have souls unlike said girls in clown makeup. Pageants and homecoming shouldn't just be handed to whoever fits the criteria of being popular and attractive, because these girls are twice as interesting as anyone else who would've been picked.

everyone's beautiful, everyone's a winner, everyone is someone meaningful. why aspire towards anything when you're already lavished with praise for doing nothing but existing? this is the world we live in, and part of the reason our society is in decline.

let the high school kids have their moment. its likely they're at the apex of their lives.
