U of Minnesota Drops Homecoming 'King and Queen' in Favor of Genderless Alternative

Quote:
Officials at the University of Minnesota have also announced that the biological sex of the winners is irrelevant. The newly crowned “royals” at the university’s next homecoming event “can be any combination of any gender identity.”

Homecoming this year at the University of Minnesota will be held October 15-21. Recentl students have been invited to apply to be crowned a royal for the 2017 event.

“This change allows the University to select the best student representatives for the U of M based on campus and community involvement — regardless of gender,” the Homecoming website states.

According to the website, the title of “royal” will be awarded to two students “who respectfully represents the University’s values, connects with the diverse members of the University community, and has excellent school pride.”

Yes, and if you think a "queen" should be female, and a "king" should be male, then you are a slimy bigot who has no right to live!!!
Thanks from Sabcat and coke

The states need to start pulling funding. While other countries are actually educating, we are screwing around with safe places, genderless this and that, and transgenders.

I teach high school. So far I haven't seen any of these transgender issues.

You are lucky. Trust me if anything they are being under played. I have two kids in the Minneapolis school system.

Last year at an alternative school (I may have posted this here) they took the kids on a field trip for sex ed to the smitten kitten a gay focused (primarily lesbian) sex shop. Now this in itself I do not have an issue w/ as the students at this school were over 50% identifying as lgbtq4s+7-hippo-alpha-delta but the school did not require permission slips for this adventure.

It is literally a fad. Like the hippies of the 60s, punks of the 70s the goths of 00s. It is a counter culture. The kicker is that the establishment is supporting, promoting and protecting it. Just think if the schools not only made rules to protect the hippies but provided them a state funded room at the school to walk their dirty bear feet into, sit on patchouli soaked pillows and smoke pot all day. That is what is basiclly happening.
