"Male" student banned from prom...

... for wearing a dress.

Another of those pretty common "gay boy wants to go to prom in a dress" stories.

Based on the article's descriptions, the student had pretty much transitioned into a female identity for this academic year, so it is pretty much wrong to force "him" out of the prom when "he" had already been allowed to wear girls' jeans to classes. (In my neocon Asian suburb, doing anything along these lines would've been unthinkable.)

I'm definitely keeping an eye on this one's development.
