What happened to the days when boys were boys and girls were girls and people were just happy with what they were born?

What is this trans crap? It's just sick.

That has never been the case for transgender people, at any time in history.

Why is it "sick"? You don't believe that a kid can be born with any sort of health condition? How is this any different than ANY other sort of condition?

And why does some kid choosing to lead a healthy and authentic life, instead of pretending, hurt you in any way? Should he have to pass as female to make you feel more comfortable in your own gender?

His classmates accept him, even in this very VERY conservative area.

It's people identifying with their inner selves, rather than just their plumbing.

This is improvement.

I hope he wins, the image of the prom king and prom queen sharing their traditional dance all dressed up in their tuxes is the one the idiot Principal deserves to be stuck with.
