Uh...what? I am a big pro-gay person, but...it'd be more progressive to just have two kings...not call the one a queen...wouldn't it? Semantically, it doesn't make much sense.
Edit: Don't get me wrong, it's cool, though, and that's actually a really good story and point the kid told when I watched the video.
Um, ok. I thought queen represented female (regardless if person is gay). Anyway... things have changed since I left high school...
No offense to anyone.
I agree. He should have been elected Prom King.
I wonder where the feminist groups stand on this ...
I've posted this before, but...
We are. That's why we're fighting for equal rights for ALL.
Doesn't seem fair. But as long as a girl is elected King . . .
Maybe he could take Miss California's place next year?
Seems like men and the gay community have formally allied to destroy women and the feminist movement.
This doesnt make sense. The term "queen" is female-specific, regardless of sexual orientation. I dont care if the fellow is gay, but gender-specific words need to keep their definitions lest we find ourselves rewriting the entire dictionary to remove any indication of gender.
Prom Queens are elected by the student body, so I don't see a problem with it.
Unless you hate democracy.
I really don't see the problem. Get over yourselves. By the way, "queen" is a pretty common term in the gay male community.
Times have indeed changed. Something like that was unthinkable in my day.
hope the prom king is gay or he would have had a hard time of it
Fantastic. If nothing else, stories like this mean that equal rights will eventually come to California. And stories like this only speed that day forward!
No way! The dude probably loved it.
Exactly. Apparently no one has heard of the band Queen, either.
Whose most excellent lead singer was gay.
No it makes alot of sense. Its no secret that a good portion of the gay community have embraced the term "queen".
While true, do we now redefine "high school prom queen" to mean both female student and gay male student?
I don't see any reason why a straight male student couldn't run for "high school prom queen."
Who exactly defines what that means anyway? The students, they clearly have no problem with this.
Or have a prom queen and princess.
I don't really agree with this. I think there should have been two kings, not a guy queen. I think that isn't fair to all the girls who tried. He should have been named the King, and a female could have the Queen title.
