    Link: Florida Prom Queen Nominee Asked To Not Wear Dress - Doesn`t add up, right? All prom queen nominees are expected to wear glamorous gowns--unless you`re in Florida.

    If he had that many supporters, it doesn`t seem likely he was going to get beat up to me, but at least that is a better excuse than "This school doesn`t like queers".

    Apparently many states still live in the 1800`s. Freedom of Speech? Freedom of Choice? Apparently, not for some in the "Good ol` US of A". Shame.

    What school suspends students for parking in the wrong lot? We always got warnings, then tickets, then detention, then ISS, then a suspension. What the hell is wrong with schools that are jumping to suspension after minor infractions?

    Obviously they aren`t uncomfortable with him being gay or being Prom Queen, as the administrators were the ones who encouraged him to run for queen instead of king. I think they were probably more inclined to punish him because he was disregarding their requests, but I don`t think this was another school-district-hating-on-queers case. (Not like that other one, with the lesbian in a tux). Being gay and/or prom "queen" doesn`t somehow make you immune to the rules.

    @Slmmhmmr161 It`s arguably covered in the 1st amendment.

    You`re arguing it as freedom of speech?

    Bit of a long shot on a few points:

    i) It`s a school - pupils don`t have freedom of speech.

    ii) If clothing was freedom of speech under that law, no law banning nudity could exist anywhere in the USA.

    iii) If clothing was freedom of speech under that law, all dress codes would be illegal.

    I think it`s stretching the application of the first amendment way too far.

    I think he should have been going for prom king anyway - a man in a dress is a man.

    @Angilion: not to argue with you, but...

    i) that doesn`t invalidate the fact that they arguably should, nor does it prevent litigation under exactly that premise
    ii) here`s another case where there`s been plenty of litigation and in fact laws have voided, especially where the prescribe different standards for genders
    iii) see above. further, dress codes in public sectors are often challenged.

    So, while you`re technically correct in that current laws in some places support your outline, you`ll also surely acknowledge that it`s not particularly far out (and in fact it happens often) to challenge dress codes, laws governing nudity all wrapped in free speech. Is that the best approach? Perhaps not. But, a "long shot"? Well, it`s worked at times. It`s failed at times.

    Go to a club and wear all the dresses you want there.

    This sucks. I don`t think that anyone has the ability to tell kids how to act @ prom. Come on, first the lesbian and now this!? Who cares if these kids are gay?! They`re dressed appropriately and all they want to do is have a good time. Tell a girl she can`t go in a tux? Ya right, all H377 will break loose. Sorry, completely against all this crap.

    I don`t like how wishy-washy the administration was in their position. They should have taken a firm stance right from the beginning and made it clear, but I suspect they didn`t mainly because they wanted to do as little with this controversial topic as possible. Of course, I recommend Omar (or Bonilla if he prefers) would have made his case clear from the beginning as well for his own best interest, but the administration has the RESPONSIBILITY to do this.

    Okay, let`s cut all the crap here and now and let`s get down to the facts no one wants to hear. We can`t expect any of the kids in high school to take responsibility for their actions. We`re obviously not treating them like adults, nevermind the fact that this was an adult making an adult decision.

    Or am I wrong...shouldn`t we expect the schools to actually prepare kids for life by letting them make personal decisions when they`re obviously of age to do so?

    Put simply, either they`re going to have to learn to take responsibility for their actions or not. The school doesn`t have to like it. No one has to like it but if the school didn`t like it so much, maybe they should have thought about it when he ran for prom queen without opposition from the school.

    Yeah, it might lead to equally sick things like women wearing trousers.

    Oh, wait. That`s normal now.

    It`s just clothes. There`s nothing special about them and they`re not really sexed at all.

    A couple of appropriate examples off the top of my head:

    i) Traditional Scottish clothing for men is a sort of dress. Traditionally, Scotland is noted for dangerous, determined fighters. They even went up against the English, repeatedly.

    ii) Traditional clothing for men in ancient Rome was a short dress (tunica). Legionaries wore a skirt. These were the people who would fight outnumbered 5 to 1 and win.

    Like they have a choice... Did you chose to be straight? Nope. Some people are just like that naturally.

    Let the guy do as he wants. He`s not hurting anyone.

    As for getting bashed?

    "He almost won -- Bonilla was among the top three vote-getters"

    Seems the student body is actually quite supporting. Good on him.

    When I was in grade 6, the teacher said I threw a book at her. I didn`t even have a book in my hand. I needed the washroom and she wouldn`t let me, so I left the class. I got written up for throwing a book.
