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.

Start dressing for your shape and also find whats comfortable.  Because if you wear something that is uncomfortable you wont be happy and happiness is the best look :)Most of the time I wear jeans with a graphic tshirt or singlet and a cardigan or light jacket. Hoodies are great for winter. And I wear combat boots like doc martins and converse. Hope I helped somehow! :) Yup! Thanks!

    I have my earlobe pierced, and I'm considering getting a piercing elsewhere on my ear. I'm thinking my outer conch at the moment.  Do you have ear piercings? Where? What looks good to you? Any advice?
