Another gay question

Now I believe in gays being treated on an equal par with everyone else, but when a gay teen gets elected prom QUEEN in Los Angeles I think that goes a bit to far. What do you think?

  • To each their own. But my question. Did he win to make a statement? Or did he win because based on the criteria for prom "queen", he was the best candidate? Odds are, because we are dealing with high school students~I am going to go with he won because kids wanted to make a statement. I see next years prom committee in other schools changing the criteria. (Not that I agree with it) But I see Change a-coming....

  • Was he transgender? I can see this happening if her prefers to be addressed as a woman....other than that they could have just elected him as prom king still. Whatever, I guess, it's their student body that held the election!

  • I support gay rights and marriage. However, I feel this young man should have ran for Prom King, since he is a male, being gay shouldn't come into the equation. Thats just my opinion, this is a positive sign of changing times. We should be proud of the young adults in Los Angeles.

  • Why is it going too far? Obviously he was voted queen. If the *majority* of the students weren't comfortable with it, he wouldn't have won the crown.
