Here He... I Mean She Comes!

Ask Janet anything.

Prom kings wear crowns.
Prom Crown

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.

    I think you can not be sure he likes you. take me as an example theres this girl in my class who i talk to everyday. Now i see her as a sister and i have and will go to lengths just to make sure shes okay and her boyfriend doesnt hurt her. This might be what is happening in your situation so i advice that you wait a bit longer because him loooking at you may mean that he likes you and is waiting for the right time to tell you. Meanwhile you can get closer to him and flirt once in a while to asure that him you also like him (that is if he isnt sure). And dont worry if he doesnt like you back its better to have a friend who cares about you than a boyfriend who doesnt like you that much and is dreaming about someone else.

    What part of it are you scared of? Is it eating in public and around other people, or just eating in general?  What it might be, if it's eating in public you don't like, is social anxiety, or social phobia. You should ask your doctor to check, because if it is, they can offer you ways to help. For instance, they might recommend therapists or group sessions to help ease your fear.  Even if it's just a phobia or, in unlikelier circumstances, an eating disorder, you should still go to your doctor or a therapist so you can try to overcome it. Try doing things that calm you down before these situations as well, like exercise, reading or listening to music (I'm not sure what relaxes you but sometimes these help). Also, you should try to slowly get used to the situations. So don't force yourself to eat straight away when you're out, but slowly start doing so whenever your comfortable with doing so. Unlike your mum wants, you can't just "stop" being scared because that's not how it works.  But right now, please don't force yourself into any of these situations. It's not good for your mental health to be forced to face a phobia of yours often.

    Dear Dish-It, Within the last few years I have felt a bit sick and shaky when we go out to eat. It's not so bad when it's a carvery lunch or something at a pub, but settling down for a chocolate brownie and a milkshake shakes me up. Don't get me wrong, I love going out with Mum, but it's just sitting down and taking a bite. I want to chuck it in the bin. I love eating brownies and stuff at home and I'm pretty healthy. But I refuse to go to the town before lunch in fear. Mum told me I got to stop this or I'm going to develop a terrible phobia.  Please help! ElfyKathy, worried
