Anyone else reminded of the Saved by the Bell episode where Screech won the school beauty pageant?

Okay...a man won homecoming queen. Another man won homecoming king...assuming that one or both of these me are heterosexual, won't this make the first dance awkward?

Another thing:
"It was such a disappointment," said Kim Ferber of St. Cloud, whose daughter Annie was a queen candidate. "I don't even want her going to the school if this is how it's going to be."
This woman needs to be biatch-slapped.

The mother is a sore loser. She reminds me of those crazy mothers who force their kids into beauty pageants at the age of 2.

Wow. This may be the first story with a 'sappy' tag that turns into a flamewar... at least that I've seen.

"We don't like putting people in a box"

Heh.

You're not putting someone in a box by labeling them a male or a female.

isMale = this.hasPenis();

Ha, skinink, it just takes me longer to type! Great minds...

Anyone else think that "Fue Khang" would be a really cool name to have?

Didn't this happen last year at University of Minnesota Morris or some other dinkly little Minnesota campus?

Why did they interview the MOTHER of a COLLEGE STUDENT? Can she not take care of herself yet?
 
2004-10-23 05:09:22 PM  
I think these people are being a little too... ah... creative in their use of the term "homecoming queen."

I think that "disappointed mother" lost homecoming queen in high school so she's bitter, malcontent, and wanted nothing more than to live vicariously through her more accomplished daughter.

/just a guess.

With laces out of course.

I think that what that mother fails to realize is that her daughter wasn't even picked for the court...sop it's not like she lost to a man, she lost to a few women as well.

Mommy's little princess just wasn't good enough.

Wouldn't that be a homecoming drag queen?

Hi-oooooooooo.

I think the woman has every right to be worried about any school that does this. If I had children, I wouldn't want them to go to a liberalized, PC-dripping school like this.

Ken Segal was the homecoming queen at MIT in 1985.

In fact he also won ugliest man on campus and Undergraduate Association Present. In the latter case he ran as the nominee of the Conservative Gumby Party, and handed out Vitalis at the first meeting.

Stage mom maybe?

2004-10-23 05:51:06 PM  
how is that gender stereotyping? king=male and queen=female. it's not like the school only elects one of them. seems pretty damn fair to me.

This is a Slap in the Face to Traditional American Values and futhermore it is indicative of the kind of Moral Decay brought on by Liberals who believe in subverting the Culture of the Vast Majority of Americans in an attempt to force their own Radical Agenda down the throats of Everyday People who have been Perversely Demonized in the name of So-Called Tolerance.
