Transgender Student In Huntington Beach (California) Named Homecoming Queen
CBS News ^ | September 20, 2013

Posted on 09/21/2013 10:36:55 AM PDT by Zakeet

A transgender student at Marina High School in Huntington Beach made history Friday evening by becoming the school’s Homecoming Queen.

Cassidy Lynn Campbell, who was among five finalists, was selected for the coveted title. The announcement was made during halftime of Friday night’s game.

Earlier in the day, students reportedly erupted in cheers when it was announced that Campbell was among the finalists.

“I think it’s really awesome ’cause a lot of people wouldn’t be able to do what she does. I mean … I would be so scared and she’s accepting everything that everyone is saying. She’s taking it all in … in a good way,” Janet Tran, a student, told CBS2′s Joy Benedict.

After capturing the crown, Campbell told KCAL9′s Cristy Fajardo that she finally feels accepted after years of feeling that she didn’t fit in.

Julie Brown was correct in a way “The homecoming queen’s got a gun.”

Whole new perspective on that homecoming “Queen” business!

Maybe they should change the title to “Homo Cumming Queen”

I’m curious. If I were back in high school now (this stuff didn’t happen when I was in school), could I announce that I am really a woman, and demand to shower with the girls? 15 year old me sure would have liked that.

He won 'queen for a day'! According to Lenny Bruce, that show was rigged.

Must have been a fun night for the actual girls who were competing, losing to a guy in a dress.

The public school programmers have the “young skulls full of mush” so confused that they don’t even know the difference between a male and a female anymore. The whole world has shifted into FREAK SHOW mode. Are Americans really proud of this kind of crap? Anybody know?

From what I can tell from other stories that's the mother on the left.

Not a big surprise. This is one way HS students get to tell society that they are hip, progressive, know better and get recognition and as you can see, it worked. Kinda like the people walking around with a snake on their shoulders basically saying: “Hey, look and talk to me. I’m with the “IN CROWD”, when in all eventuality, their doing just the opposite. Pay them some attention and you’ve fallen into their wants/needs mindset and doing something as stupid as this makes you part of them because they snagged you. Simply ignore them and eventually they will go away and mature, hopefully.

So, let’s see if I have this correct. Two people who have male genitals are the homecoming royalty? Isn’t this discrimination against the females?

Next year (to be fair) they will have to insist that two females, one dressed as a guy, are the royalty. It is only fair, and everyone wants to be fair, right?????

I recently retired from 20 years in a private high school, so I know a few things. Kids, as you will recall, absolutely love to put people on. A vote like that could very well be a prank, as I saw this over the years.

I think a lot of these meaningless title elections in high school end up as a big joke. People voted for a boy out of the Beevis and Butthead-brand humor.

I think the kids voted for “it” so they could mock and laugh at the stupid, deluded teachers and administrators who praise the drag queen and pretend everything is normal.

And the moron educrats fall for it.

Probably a coping mechanism by the students, like prisoners messing with the guards any way they can.

My Alma Mater, class of 1973.
“Reporting live from Westminster” means they still don’t have their own football stadium.
Our nickname for Marina High School was “The Rock.”
I can’t even find a picture of it on the ‘net.
Seriously, it looks like a prison, complete with moat which is actually a flood control ditch.

BINGO.

Our prom class really voted for the class GEEK and the sex-crazed cheerleader as homecoming king and queen. Really happened. What you, as a senior will remember, will be your date.

The son does a better job of looking like a girl than the mom. I mean, with a face like that, she could haunt houses for a living.

I'm not going to join in the chorus here of making fun of the youngster. This is a mixed-up kid who is obviously getting crappy parenting - enabled further by a feckless school faculty who allow this boy to come to class presented as girl.

Used to be that sissies got beat up in school and they usually ended up "manning up" and was the better for it in the long run. Now they put on dresses and get treated like "special" people. Not sure that's a change for the good.

Now I'm not condoning bullying but the world is full of men who as boys were tormented in school for being "sissy" and the experience caused them to go out there and over-achieve, making six-figure salaries and having more girls than they can handle hanging off their arms while the big-shot jocks who bullied them end up going bald early pumping gas and stocking lumber at Home Depot for a living, telling little old ladies that the mousetraps are in aisle 7.

What I'm saying is, this kid is making a mistake by trying to turn himself into a girl just because he feels like he is condemned to be a sissy. Not all men have to be good at sports and know how to bang nails into wood with a hammer.

This whole "boy turns into a girl" stuff never ends well anyhow. By the time you are 30, you end up looking like Robert Plant in size 12 heels and your entire sex life is one depraved train wreck after another. Face it sissy boys, you will never be mothers and true women. Make the best of what nature handed you and eventually some woman will marry you and you can have a decent life after all. Let the woman wear the pants in the family if that's your thing but at least you can have a couple of kids and respect yourself when you get up in the morning and look in the mirror.

As for this "homecoming queen" nonsense, it's just an extension of political correctness run amok. I can remember gym class from when I was going to school and I was always one of the kids picked last for a team because when I was a boy, I was tall and gangly and sucked at sports. Then the gym teacher, thinking he was being benevolent, announced that he would pick the teams, so that "others would have a chance of being picked first." Sure enough, I was one of the first people "picked" for a team but instead of feeling special, I felt even worse because now even the gym teacher has singled me out as being a "loser." It would have been better to have been picked last by a peer.

Same situation here. Boy wears a dress to school and in order to create an artificial climate of "tolerance", it is decided to pick him (ahead of the girls) to be "home-coming queen." The practice does no favors for anybody. Not for both the students and especially not for the victim du jour.
