    GARY, Ind. - A male student who has worn women's clothes to school all year was turned away from his high school prom because he was wearing a dress.

    Kevin Logan, 18, went to the West Side High School prom on Friday in a slinky fuchsia gown and heels. He believes officials discriminated against him by not allowing him inside.

    Not if it's school policy. The school policy may be discriminatory, though.

    The argument will be "The school let him wear a dress all year long, but then denied him access at prom. If they had issues with it, they should have addressed them earlier. Since when does school policy only matter at prom?"

    The gender-based discrimination argument is stupid.

    Girls can wear skin tight, form fitting clothing, but there would be major outcries of indecency if a guy started regularly wearing such clothing. Using the gender-based discrimination argument, all students would be required to wear baggy clothing. The school would then be pestered for being too conservative.
    ...it's worse than we thought. it turns out the people at the white house are not secret muslims, they're nerds.

    (S)He's not bad looking in a dress...

    ...wonder if (s)he'll go all the way and become a "real" woman?..It's pretty dumb for the school to deny him access to the prom when he was dressing like a woman all along...
