HOUSTON (Reuters) - Camouflage was in and cross-dressing was out at a rural East Texas school district on Wednesday after a Christian legal group complained a long-standing school tradition of reversing social roles for a day would promote homosexuality.
Students in Spurger, Texas were encouraged by school officials to wear camouflage hunting gear to class after they called off their annual "TWIRP Day" in which boys dressed as girls and vice versa."

So instead of promoting a fun day, it seems to me that we make a big deal out of nothing. IMO I think that to make that big of deal about it promotes homosexuality, and also fear of homosexuality more strongly than leaving it alone would have.
And then to encourage the kids to wear fatigues instead of switching roles, does this mean we are now encouraging our children to kill?

Typical of a right-wing christian group screaming and waving bibles anytime people step out of what the right calls "normal"

Not sure why they fear homosexuals so much.. maybe because it challenges the right's idea to a white,christian, and straight only dreamland.

These people and they're ideals are dated and highly laughable. They don't fit well in a progressive and open society.. rather than racially oppressive and hard-lined.

How do you promote a natural predisposition? Some of these Fundamentalists are to scared of change and barely understand that what they chide.
