Indeed

This is what reading ATS habitually does to you!.
What can I say. The epiphany or realising that nonthing will every get any better because you are in the minority and surrounded by stupidity. That whyt people come to ATS. Here we are in the majority, so it's not as bad!

Happy stuff I know

Maybe i'm not quite as enlightened as everyone here but if he was my son there is absolutely no way he'd be going anywhere in a skirt . Likely another product of a broken home with no male influence in his life to show him and grow him to be a man instead of a trans or metro sexual . A kilt may have made a statement but a shirt makes a far different statement and i don't care if girls wear pants , boys don't wear dresses except for Boy George .

Good on this guy, nice symbolic way to stick it to The Man. He has guts, and has my respect

It wasn't all too long ago that women were thought to be deviants for wearing pants and other traditionally male clothing. Honestly, what exactly is the difference? Why exactly are you so comfortable with women in pants, but not men in skirts, if not for purely superficial societal norms?
Plus I think he's doing this purely to send a message, not because he's inclined towards wearing women's clothing. He wants to be able to wear shorts, after all. And knowing the flak he'll most likely get from his peers, I'd say it's likely he has more balls than many other boys wearing pants

You should try to open that mind up a little bit every now and then.
You may find it to be an enlightening experience.
After all, this is the 21st century.


This kid does not agree with the biased rules that have been put forth. He is standing up for what he believes in. This has nothing at all to do with any sexual preference. The few comments within this thread, that are pertaining to sexual preferences, just prove how closed-minded you homophobes actually are.

Yeah saw this on the news, good on him I say.

Why shouldn't he be able to wear shorts in the summer?
So no shorts... fair enough then he'll wear a skirt.... well girls can wear trousers so why not?


What a bright young lad.

Not my outfit of choice but to say boys/men don't wear "dresses" is as ignorant as saying that if they do, they must be gay or a transvestite...

Yeah and all Scots are gay for wearing skirts

You can't be serious, can you?

I actually had to laugh about the story, it's very creative from that boy and kudos to him for doing that.

Good for him! This stuff is always refreshing to see. Who the hell doesn't let boys wear shorts in the summer?

I can kinda relate to this in that for me I had a similar experience in my 6th form year in my country. However it was reversed for me, we couldn't wear long pants, only shorts, even during winter (the long pants were only allowed to be worn as part of the final 7th form high schools years uniform), and for that year I had near constant flu and my legs where often blue (that winter was a harsh one for the area) my parents went to the vice principal to get an allowance for me to wear pants for the rest of the year and basically he said the rules state this, you cant have exceptions to the rules (the same guy once said to us in 7th form english that he loved uniforms since it made all us kids drones and more or less low and submissive he really was a loud idiotic petty man)... Mum said to just wear pants, what could they really do... I chickened out


Thing is in the end it never happened, I endured the cold till it ended and the next year I was 7th form and could wear pants finally...

This kids got moxie for doing stuff I was to frightened to attempt, may he never loose it.

I can understand the benefits of a Uniform system since I grew up with one my entire school life, but i also see the holes of insanity a mufti (no uniform) uniform system fills (although that system has its own unique issues also).

You might not like it BC but that is reality. There is NO way this boy, will be left alone after this. YOu think the bullies and psychos that infest our schools, give a flying fart about is mature use of a loop hole to make a well though out and sharply satirical point about freedom of expression, and general summer leg comfort.

Short answer ...No

Long answer Noooooooooooooooooooo

He will be singled out,
He will be beaten for "Being Gay"

Whether he is or is not, is now irrelevant.

He has placed himself in a position where the bullies can vent their own insecurities.

His path through secondary school is now marked.

This isn't being
as you put it

This is reality.
As adults we c an congratulate him, as children we would cut him down for drawing attention to himself, trying to be different, and generally being a Puff! Maybe you just don't know as maybe you never went to School in England.

I am not homophobic, my statement was not homophobic. The only closed mindedness is you belief that everything will be OK and fine for this kid, because it has "nothing to do with sexual preference" and you're right it doesn't (in an ADULTS mind)

IN the mind of an evil secondary school bully #e. that kid is gay, and there is nothing that anyone can do or say that will chamge that, and as a consequence, he must be punished for it.!!!!

believe me, I know.

and he won;t be the next PM, reason. He is too willing to stick his neck out for what he believes in.
You really have had every last drop of hope squeezed from your soul haven't you?


Can you blame him?
That really cheered me up he must have some really strong parents. The fact he's 12 and didn't mind go to school(!) with a skirt, just imagine if that happened in the usa(i suppose any where for that matter), he stood up for his rights.That whats needed today kids who aren't afraid to stand up and make a point. Just think most of his friends and classmates will remember that and hopefully draw some type of inspiration from it later in life when they have to literally fight for there freedoms.

Reality? Here is a bit of reality for you-

Homophobes, always seem to be the people who get the thoughts about someone else being a homosexual. Those of us who are secure with our own sexuality, and do not fear what others think, do not even think about someone else being a homosexual.

Why is it that the first thought, that you had, after reading this OP, was the term 'gayer'? Who actually is the one with the homosexual thoughts? Is it this 12 year old boy? Is it the "bullies" at his school? Or maybe, just maybe, it is YOU?!?

This is funny however my sympathy is with the boy the only place I wear a dress is to bed and I am 6'2 with a large ginger beard. Not being gay or anything it's an Islamic pray robe and very cool to sleep in and helps prevent me sweating. I wonder if that Seal Team 6 got the wrong address and were looking for me? the new world order fashion police.

Cambridgeshire is a strange part of the country as a poster said in Scotland at times you'd be expected to dress in such a manor. When you were in school and tried sneaking a look up her skirt bugger me your in for a shock with this kid he could put you off women for life.

The bullies, definitely.
Honestly, it sounds like you're on a witch-hunt for homophobes. JakiusFogg is just telling it as it is - and as a senior student myself, I think he's probably correct, sadly.
Being aware of the issue of homophobia doesn't make one a homophobe, any more than being aware of the issue of domestic violence makes one a wife-beater. Don't shoot the messenger

Definite is a strong word. Do you have proof? Do you know these supposed "bullies" personally?

Homophobia is fictitious, and does not actually exist in reality? I don't understand this comparison.

Here's the video of him talking about it, one of his teachers saying they admire him.... and saying that because of his "Protest" the school will now review their uniform policy.

care to explain why? IMO he has fantastic parents. They allowed him to make a peaceful protest to make a point when he felt he had to. that's important for a young person to have (or anyone of any age) he wasn't wearing a skirt becasue he's a cross dresser, he was doing it for a political point. there's a huge difference. (and neither is wrong btw) I admire him, he has guts. Not alot of kids these days would dare to do something like this. he has my admiration. More young people like this please. mor young people who dare to stand up for what they believe in. This can only be a good thing.
