Middle class morality .. and this business of school policy sounds like a fabrication .. How many male students would ask if they could to wear a dress to school ?

Hopefully, the student won't seek revenge by wearing something truly tasteless ... like a powder blue tux and a ruffled shirt.

aaaah, fashion. When I graduated from high school, I wore a white sports coat, and a pink Carnation. My date wore blue velvet with a pink, lace top.

If he could get off support he should get a whole bunch of classmates to show up for classes in drag (boys in dresses and girls in pants and shirts).

Your idea of an ideal world would be the death of all creativity and the root of universal boredom .. Stick to football and fantasizing about shower-rooms ..

You're correct, but probably not for the reason you think. In an ideal world they wouldn't have to ask, because it wouldn't occur to anyone that there was anything wrong with it.
