School adopts gender-neutral homecoming court, so there might be no ‘king’ or ‘queen’

Breaking with the tradition at many of the nation’s schools, students at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School will adopt a gender-neutral homecoming court this year, moving away from the longtime practice of electing a boy as “king” and a girl as “queen.”
Students in each grade will vote for two classmates from a ballot of finalists, with the top vote-getters crowned at the school’s homecoming football game. It’s a change that means those honored at halftime on Oct. 7 could include two boys, two girls, transgender students or a boy-girl duo.
“It provides an opportunity for all students to be involved in something that was exclusionary,” said Jacob Rains, president of the schoolwide Student Government Association. “It is really not our job, especially with a gender-neutral and transgender population at B-CC, to tell people that boys have to be kings and girls have to be queens. Who are we to put people into those categories?”




Clearly, it is every little girl's dream to be crowned Homecoming It.

There are three cases of gender - he, she, and it.
What, exactly, makes me a bigot in this instance?
That I am unafraid to recognize biology and reality?

The term "it" is an ignorant slur that is every bit as offensive to a transgendered person as the "N" word is to an African American.

I’m sorry that I offended you.

The universe wherein men have penises and women have vaginas?
You mean that alternate universe?

That's sex, not gender, which is far more fluid.  Your bigotry isn't supported by science, so crack a book open for once before you embarrass yourself further.
