An Ohio school district decided not to intervene after students elected a pair of gender fluid classmates as prom king and queen.
Gender fluid, for those of you who might be old school, has nothing to do with one’s bladder. According to the dictionary, the “condition” is defined as “of, relating to, or being a person whose gender identity is not fixed.”
In other words the prom king at Fairmont High School may or may not be a boy or a girl or transgender, or two-spirit, or asexual, or pansexual or demisexual or — oh my — the possibilities are endless these days. And the same goes for the prom queen (not to be confused with a drag queen).
Fairmont students elected 18-year-olds Rosita Green and Dai’sean Conley. Ms. Green was named king and Mr. Conley was named king. I know, it’s terribly confusing.
“The LGBTQ really took over last night” and “is it really an ironic moment if there isn’t a group of haters,” Conley wrote on Facebook after his or her or ze or zir’s coronation.
They really stuck it to the heterosexuals, didn’t they?
Prom Parents Furious!
The prom dude was especially angry that not everyone bowed down in reverence to their new queen (or king).
“It’s very demeaning,” Conley told television station WDTN. “It takes a lot for an individual to be able to bring themself back to who they are and believing in themselves and being fully confident and not letting things like that pull them out of who they are as a person.”
It turns out the prom vote was not exactly unanimous.
“Even when I was given the crown and I put on my head, there’s a lot of boos in the crowd,” he told the television station.
Dayton Daily News reports the LGBTQ takeover sparked great outrage among parents.
“I think he should have been voted king and the girl queen,” Joe Overholser told the board. “I’m concerned about what’s going on in the schools. I’m concerned about normalizing the idea of questioning gender.”
Another parent recommending requiring prom roles to be assigned based upon biological sex.
“Schools harm children when they play along with this charade … what Kettering allowed to happen at prom is normalizing something that isn’t normal,” she said.
School leaders said that ultimately, the children get to decide their prom royalty and declined to intervene.
I don’t mean to trigger the “gender fluid” crowd, but God made little boys to be prom kings and little girls to be prom kings. And that’s that.
