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…
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!
