Reigning Prom King Wore A Dress||Why I Won’t Conform To Gender Confusion

Hey friends! I’m here again with a post about gender, and this time I have a news story to share. Here in my home state of South Carolina, one high school guy recently made the headlines by being crowned prom king… in a dress.

The openly gay student actually received a controversial response with his outfit decision. But not for what you’d quite expect. People were mad because they thought if he came to prom identifying and looking female, he shouldn’t have the honor of being the prom “king.”

Apparently queen is what he should have been competing for.

His supporters and fellow classmates made comments such as:

“Are you kidding me? He wore that dress better than I ever could have,” a girl posted on Facebook. “If it makes you feel beautiful, you just go right ahead and screw people with negative close-minded views… It takes a lot of courage to be your authentic self.”

“Good for this kid and kudos to Powdersville High School for showing some 21st Century class and acceptance,” posted Heath Lane on Facebook.

“It’s so refreshing to know that he is supported,” posted Meredith Thomas. “His classmates knew that he’d be in drag and still voted for him. He can wear a dress and run for prom king. I think he looked beautiful. Adam is brave and an honor student. Keep shining!”

We live in a very confused and immoral world. 

It’s really sad that being counter-cultural brings you so much hate. If you take a stand against LGBT pride or homosexuality, you turn into this horrid, mean-spirited person in the eyes of many.

I will not embrace and celebrate this lifestyle in order to be liked.

Truth is truth, and whether anyone likes it or not, it can’t be avoided. Either something is right or it’s wrong. It’s good or it’s bad. The problem with praising the LGBT community is that you adapt the mindset that people can do whatever they want and it’s fine.

A progressive or modern mindset…? More like sinful.

These classmates of Adam think they’re being good, supportive friends because they encouraged him in his pursuit to appear female. Making nice comments and applauding his decision- that’s part of what makes you a decent person right?

If you’re not standing behind him as a cheerleader, something’s wrong and YOU need to change.

This isn’t exactly being as tolerant as they claim to be.

Here’s how I see it: people in the LGBT community have the right to choose their sexual orientation and gender identity, right?

Yet we aren’t allowed to have personal convictions that embrace traditional gender roles. Or follow the God that ordained them.

That seems like quite a double standard to me. I’m not saying it’s okay to hate or slander anybody, I just don’t see why it’s a unforgivable crime to say that being LGBT is wrong.

This agenda is pushed so hard… but it’s not right. 

Guys, we can’t grow to accept it. It can’t become a normal lifestyle that we don’t think twice about.

America is SO sensitized to sin, but as Christians, we have to keep replacing worldly errors with truth. No matter HOW much the media is throwing it out as a good thing.

Nearly everywhere I go now I see it. And it’s heartbreaking.

So many dear people are being deceived and fed lies by our twisted culture. So many parents say their child can choose to be male or female. So many TV shows are proud to have homosexual couples. So many people decide to undergo treatment and surgically change themselves in order to “switch” genders.

A couple in Canada recently had a baby. It’s gender on the birth certificate says…

Undetermined. 

I hope you’ll join me in praying that everyone who is being deceived will come to see the light of Christ.

Thank you for reading and have a wonderful night!

  1. Thank you so much for bringing this to light. Awful. I can’t believe this is happening! You don’t know how much I agree, we cannot accept this. That is absolutely 100% DISGUSTING. This world is insane! Thank you so much for sharing, you truly have a gift with words. ♥️

  2. Hey Mel! 😘 As always, I love that you’re willing to talk about these really difficult topics. I do want to add something though because this is something that God’s placed on my heart recently. As Christians, Christ’s representatives, we need to be SOOO careful that we’re responding to it with the right attitude. If we see homosexuality and transgenderism as disgusting and look down our noses at these people, we’ve utterly failed. If we go to war against homosexuality and the transgender issue, we’ve tragically missed the point. Now, please understand, I’m NOT saying we condone their sin. The Bible very clearly says that homosexuality is a damnable sin and I stand by that 100%, but we CAN NOT leave it at that. These people are sinners, yes, but you know what??? So we’re we. Before Christ saved us we were NO BETTER than they are. So let’s not be like the prideful Pharisee: “God, I thank you that I’m not like THAT guy.”

    Our duty as Christians is not to battle homosexuality! These people are going to hell wether or not their spouse/significant other happens to be the correct gender!

    I’m so sorry, I know I’m rambling but this is something I’m passionate about. I fear that in our effort as the church to stand firm against the culture, we’ve completely missed the point. These people need to gospel!!! They’re not sinners cause they’re gay, they’re gay because their sinners! I can’t stress that enough! Jesus Christ showed love to the sexually immoral. NO he didn’t turn a blind eye to their sin, but he offered them a solution for it. The ONLY solution.

    Please, brothers and sisters in Christ, don’t be prideful. We are to share the TRUTH in LOVE. Both of those words are EQUALLY important.

    Ok. I’m so sorry. 😂😂 I could rant about this for a long time but I’m almost done. The last thing I want to say is this: there are ONLY two kinds of people in the world. No. It’s not gay people and straight people. It’s lost sinners and saved sinners. Please, everyone, keep that in mind as you live in the world and not of it.

    Well if you’ve read this all the way to the end I sincerely thank you for your time and God bless!!!

    1. Hey Kat! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I hope you didn’t take my post the wrong way, I was definitely not writing with a prideful or disgusted attitude. In fact, I just felt sadness!

      I wasn’t saying that I’m perfect and they’re not. And yes, I think we SHOULD take a stand against what is morally wrong. : D Bringing sin to light in the right attitude is never wrong. Jesus is the only one who can set us free and I’m of need of His freedom just as much as anyone else!

      Thanks for visiting my blog post and I hope you have a great day! Talk to you soon!

      1. First off, I just want to publically acknowledge that my comment was out of line and I’m really sorry I posted it. I don’t regret anything I said, but I don’t suppose the comment section is the place for it.

        Secondly, I want to clarify that I wasn’t putting down Melani’s post in any way!!! I guess I was just trying to expand on it or something which, again, was not particularly appropriate. At least not like this. And I’m VERY sorry.

  3. That’s really really really weird. I don’t have anything against LGBTQ+ people, just what they support. What a distorted world we live in. It really is heartbreaking.

  4. It is very sad. I actually decided to leave a job because of something like this. Funny, I actually take classes at a community college and have not seen anything like this, but had to get a job to be exposed to it?

  5. Thank you for speaking out! I find it funny as soon as someone has an opinion against LGBT, people jump all over it. It is to the point that people who support LGBT are the only people that have a right to an opinion. How is that fair? *rolleyes* It is so sad this is happening in America today.

  6. This is so sad. (And gross!) It’s pretty easy to determine if a boy is a boy or a girl is a girl. We don’t get to decide if we’re a boy or a girl. God does. The DNA strands do. We are who we are, and we should own it! Not change it.
    I can appreciate that those classmates on FB were being awesome and supporting a classmate; they just weren’t supporting a good thing. There are good people out there, but modern society has twisted their mindsets. 😢

  7. Oh my goodness…what is going on with this world? I wish that I could magically zap everyone’s minds and poof! they know Jesus and the world is perfect! Unfortunately, that can’t be possible, so I guess it’s up to us to poof! our own little world around us.
    I admire you so much to be able to talk about such controversial topics like this, Melani! You truly have a gift for this!!
    By the way, thank you for following 🙂 ❤

  9. I had no idea about this prom king thing! Oh, how it saddens me. Our world is so lost and in desperate need of Jesus. I will definitely be praying for this prom king and those who openly praise him. I believe that though we need to love our neighbor, we must at the same time take a Biblical stance against this homosexual agenda. 😦 It is disgusting, heartbreaking, and shows how far our culture is from God.

    I appreciate your response.

    Thank you for sharing.

  10. That’s so sick! “He looked beautiful”?!?! Seriously? He looked like a guy dressed in a girls prom dress! When will this world open their eyes and see how ridiculous this is? Homosexuals are allowed to offend Christians but Christians, don’t you dare do anything to offend those “gender confused” things. I never thought I’d see the day when I strained with whether to call someone ma’am or sir. Not because I don’t want to offend them but because I honestly can’t tell if it’s a man or woman! It’s crazy!

  11. How can you be gender confused?! People these days act like they have a choice…..like it’s a choice that everyone has to make at some point in their life. It makes as much sense if me,a 17 year old, went to a restaurant and tried to claim a free meal offered only to 4 year olds by saying I’m a 4 year old stuck in a 17 years old’s body!!
