Here He... I Mean She Comes!

Recently an amazing event happened. In Ferndale, Washington a lesbian (girl who likes girls) named Krystal Bennett ran for prom king and won. The headlines described it as "turmoil" in the town. The school board will now change school policy because future prom kings must be boys and queens should be girls.

C'mon Already

I don't know about you, but I don't think it's that big of a deal. Who makes the rules anyway? The students voted and elected who they wanted. Nuff said. The students were given ballots and told to write in their choices. They did.

Times are changing

Look around. You have girls playing sports as hard and sometimes better than the boys. Boys rap, girls rap and put it down. You have boys who can cook, go grocery shopping and baby-sit. It's awesome baby! This is what the real world is all about. Living in the real world is being active, making choices and knowing what is going on around you.

Take up space

I heard someone say, "If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space." And ya know what? They are right. Living on the edge doesn't mean being crazy and out there - doing stupid stuff. It means giving 110 percent all of the time. It means that you better recognize what is most important to you, what you value and what your goals are. Taking up space means not taking chances. Krystal, the king who would be queen took a chance - and she won.

What do you think? Should girls be allowed to be prom king? Should boys be allowed to be prom queens?

Got a Q you want Dr. Janet to discuss? Write her.

If that fails, tell another trusted adult, like your mother. I'm sure someone you're close to would do their best to get justice. This is a major problem and it's a shame no one's done anything to help. ​No one listens to me anyway but my friends

Behaviour like that is not acceptable in the slightest. ​Teacher said to wait for the Bus Driver and the counselor, she just talks to me and doesn't tell The Princible

Well my gosh, report them to an authority figure! You can't let them get away with that kind of stuff. ​My bus driver does NOTHING about it EVEN IF HE SEE'S IT! he only wrote the two girls up but not the girl that hit me
