I need some inconsistency

An amalgamation of content: the aim not to politicise, but exercise. I'll think aloud about politics, technology, current news, as well as being a gay boy and what that really entails.

Girl elected as homecoming king!

Article from the Oakland Tribune reports how a California High School has elected a girl as their homecoming king - a reported first. After much initial apprehension and fuss, the idea seems to have been taken on board. She was entered in the election as a joke to accompany her best friend of many years, and was surprised to find the idea taking off. As one would expect there followed the normal flurry of accusations about race, sexuality and gender politics, but I think it's just a great deviation from the norm.
