Silly really
She looks rather cute... They should let her wear what she wants. I would have rather wore a suit to the proms I was forced to go to and I'm only semi-gay

But what do you expect from the same country who turned Sailor Uranus into Neptune's COUSIN! ARG!

(In sailor moon they had these LESBIAN Sailor Soldiers .It's clear they are, but the US changed that. GRAH! Even Japan, which really isn't that fond of gays can have a show many kids watch with a LOVING LESBIAN COUPLE!)

(This doesn't seem relevant, but it kind of is because Haruka would wear the men's uniform to school and I'd do that too as I hate dresses and just bought the nicest men's shirt semi-free from the Pre-Ripped and Worn out Clothes Store.

Well they "let" her wear it they just aren't allowing her photo to be included in the yearbook. It's bullshit. I'm really saddened by this.

I actually quite appreciate the Sailor Moon tangent. That is quite interesting.

That's so ridiculous
Which is one reason why I am not fond of the south .This sort of thing seems to happen a lot there. Why should her picture be included? I didn't want to wear the off the shoulder wrap, but they made me against my will.

Also, I got a scene in a werewolf story where this girl wants to wear a tuxedo with her girlfriend who wants to wear a dress for some reason to the prom.
I wonder if there would be static for that because of nutwitted authority figures who got to be all like, EVERYONE HAS TO WEAR THEIR GENDER APPROPRIATE CLOTHING! Not understanding that kilts and kimono can be considered VERY MANLY and jeans the essence of womanhood.

Being from The South, I can't blame you. You do a see a lot of this, but then you also have those of us who try very hard to fight this kind of thing every chance we get. Slowly but surely there is some change being made.

That is brave. i was born in the south and lived there off and on, but i like the north east a bit better.
I saw this great documentary about this lesbian teenager down south and she wanted to be some sort of band leader and they gave it to her so that was nice.
So perhaps things will slowly change.

I am hopeful that it will. Most of the people my age (20s) couldn't care less from what I've seen. It's the older ones in places of power that set down silly laws and rules against the GLBT community. Of course, sometimes you can be surprised. I've had several older people compliment me on my GLBT unity button pin I wear on my purse.

neet! Maybe they are starting to wake up and think, hmmm. GLBT people are not evil demons who want to eat me but PEOPLE so I should just let them chill and be happy and join p flag and not p fox.

I can be hopeful...

Ugh, that's so sad. It's not like it's so revealing that nipple is showing, or plastered with hateful language. That's just terribly unfair. :(

And girls can look fucking hot in suits/tuxedos anyway, so the school fails on that account too. ;)

Yeah, that hate is coming from the administration.

That is so wrong and messed up.

Yeah. Quite distressing but also not too unexpected which is all the more worrying.
