Let the People VoteWell, in Maryland, college students elected a lesbian as Homecoming King:
However, that is not good enough:
Jennifer Jones, the 21-year-old senior who beat out three men for the honor, said the crowning was a positive step for the private liberal arts college.
"It is cool that Hood allows people to be themselves," Jones told The Frederick News-Post. "If people didn't want me to be king, they wouldn't have nominated me and voted for me."
Donald Miller, Hood's student activities director, said all homecoming events will be reviewed and possibly changed. "We will look at what students want Hood's homecoming to be," he said.Uh, Donald, Mr. Miller... I think the students voted for Ms. Jones to be King. But I get it, as long as the people who vote, vote the way their supposed to vote then it's ok. The silliest quote from the article is given by a male who was running for Homecoming king:
Santo Provenzano, 21, who competed for king, said Jones' selection made the event seem like a joke. "It discourages guys from wanting to take part in the future," he said.And just having a Homecoming Queen or King isn't a joke? Didn't those things go out with separate water fountains?
