Cross Gender Dressing Day
Today is designated Cross Gender Dressing Day at the high school, part of the silliness of homecoming week. One son wanted nothing to do with it, rolling his eyes in disdain; his twin thought it would be great fun to wear a sports bra stuffed with kleenex. We absolutely refused to let him do it. I know, I know, teenage boys dressed up in drag when I was in high school for huge laughs, but it's a different world today.

On the way out of the house, though, he did grab my brightly flowered baseball cap. I let him wear it.

I wonder if some misunderstood transgender student will contact the ACLU and sue the school?
