At their homecoming ceremony in late September, a Memphis, Tennessee high school awarded its newly-designed gender-neutral homecoming court titles.
Brandon Allen, a homosexual teen boy and a senior at White Station High School, was crowned “Homecoming Royalty” in the middle of the football field in a floor-length, glittering dress in the middle of the football field as his fellow students cheered him on.
How eerily symbolic. This homecoming ceremony demonstrates exactly the sort of approval and celebration the LGBT movement demands: not just tolerance, not just acceptance, but adoration.
The school posted photos of Allen on Facebook on Saturday with mixed responses.
“Here’s the thing: It’s Brandon’s right to run for homecoming court under Title IX. It’s the students’ choice of who they want to support as homecoming royalty,” White Station High School principal Carrye Holland said in a comment on the post. “I’m exceedingly proud to be the principal of our amazing school. You don’t have to agree but disrespectful comments will be deleted. WSHS loves and supports everyone regardless of who they are or what they believe. Thank you for the love and light from so many of you.”
Shelby County Schools Superintendent Joris Ray also responded to the story on Twitter Saturday night, according to WREG, saying, “Shelby County Schools policy prohibits discrimination and the District is committed to ensuring a positive and respectful school environment where everyone is treated with dignity.”
“Homecoming queen and king is a tradition based 100% on student votes,” Ray continued. “As superintendent, I support student voice and expression.”
That this poor young man is being praised and applauded in his confusion is nothing short of a tragedy. We can only pray that he has someone in his corner ready to share the truth in love.
This school’s decision isn’t innocent—it’s not just updating some tired old tradition. This is yet another symptom of the rapidly metastasizing leftism that has infected our nation’s school system.
Where our schools and our children go, our civilization’s future will go. We must continue to fight this onslaught, or that future will only get darker and more dangerous for those of us left standing.
