    Decades ago, this was considered just silly fun - today it's considered "deviant" by homophobic adults. I suppose next the Christian agenda will have us outlawing Halloween as a sick pagan ritual.

    That will come right after the Religiousphobic try to outlaw Christmas because it represents the birth of Jesus.

    While I'll concede your point, I would caution you against throwing stones. Is an attempt by the likes of Robertson to outlaw Halloween worse than the zealous secularist campaign to outlaw Christmas, to eliminate "under God" in the Pledge, or to remove "In God we trust" from our money?

    I can see that a cross-dress day as described is just a fun thing to do - for high school students - not for very young children. It appears to me that the opposition to such an activity is part of a developing Christian resentment of the ongoing secularist agenda to bar any semblance of public religious expression.

    We had boys in my middle school (in a suburb of Houston) dress as cheerleaders, but it was always either for Halloween or for a spirit rally as a funny thing. But I think that cross-dressing as an "educational" event is ridiculous at best, CivilLiberty's charges of homophobia notwithstanding.

    Civil Liberty, your quote, "Decades ago, this was considered just silly fun - today it's considered "deviant" by homophobic adults. I suppose next the Christian agenda will have us outlawing Halloween as a sick pagan ritual", has been baned in a lot of schools already because it supposedly insults witches. There are a lot of schools in the news now that won't allow Christmas Navity scenes, or even say Merry Christmas to each other. It's too much for me to hope for to be alive for the next civil disobedience uprising. Sure would like to be though. But these very things has been in the news lately.

    Agreed. Done as a role-reversal prank, I have no problem with it. But this is definitely not the type of "education" for which our schools are intended.

    Decades ago we could also pray, say "under God" , celebrate Christmas, read religious works, be told of the religious nature of our government etc. etc. at school.

    "Silly fun" has become more important to our "educational system" ????

    If you think you have run up against a silly religious system of morals now, just wait until you try pushing further. You are just learning the strength of your opposition. Perhaps you cold learn something from them.
