Because these socially accepted "pagents" high schools put on let transgendered folks fall trough the cracks. They resent being called the gender they do not associate with and if they get the title they do recognize people like you would probably try to take it away.

Well as a tg I hardly think I would want to take anything away. I just think the action taken is stupid. Yay for this person being voted homecoming king. That in itself is great. The school screwed up because of stupidity. A public apology and resignation of those who screwed up would be sufficient. Taking away the "titles" from future kids isn't fair.

Ok, call me crazy, but I completely disagree with you. Many kids across the nation struggle with identity problems and accepting themselves. This ideology does nothing but help those kids; while still maintaining some sort of tradition.
