I was reading this article about this dude who got crowned Homecoming Queen of George Mason University, and how this college-educated white male parading around in makeup and a skirt became their #1 asset in asserting themselves as an institution tolerant of minorities. It got me thinking- no not that he isn't a minority, of course he is- there can be only one winner. It got me thinking something that really blew my mind. Though I have been drinking a bit tonight.

Drag queens (not transsexuals or transvestites, just drag queens) are the only minority group you can honestly say, without fear of being called politically incorrect, exist for our entertainment. Lesbians, midgets, asians with thick accents, many Americans find these people entertaining for various reasons, but we keep it to ourselves or only in the company of close friends- in public, for the most part, we are respectful of the fact that people of these groups have their own lives and deal with their status as minorities by trying to live the same sort of lives as everyone else. But not drag queens. They camp it up and draw attention to the fact that they're different- "Look at me! I'm not like you! Stare! Love me, hate me, just acknowledge my weirdness! It's what I'm here for!"

So does that make them a superminority? Not a minority? If a drag queen dances around in the middle of the forest in a dress as conspicuously as he can, but nobody is there to see it, does that make him a transvestite instead? Or is he still a drag queen? And if a tree falls down on him, does he make a noise?

Yeah, I heard about that earlier tonight on Fox News. I agree with what one of the student basketball players said in regards to this. He said that his school is in the spotlight on national tv with this game/homecoming, and that he thought this was really stupid (the drag queen being picked as homecoming queen and parading around like that in front of the whole nation to where it embarrasses the University). The University however doesn't seem to mind of this.

Somehow I don't think that a person who would avoid or think less of a university because of something like this is the sort of mind that the university would want there in the first place.

Unless they had a decent free-throw average...

To me,its just a guy in a dress.Transgenders,transvestites tend to be people with real needs and emotions who felt this way for awhile and wanted to be the opposite gender since they could remember. I think this guy was just an attention whore...not to say all drag queen and kings are.

These days it is all in our best interest to be open minded. I was raised to be open minded when it wasn't the norm. At least they didn't stigmatize the contest by calling it Who will be your next Drag Queen Homecoming Queen, and left it open for all that wanted to compete. The competitions that do that really erk me. Like Miss Black USA, which definately shoves the white populous out. It couldn't be called Miss White USA and get away with it. Being open is just what that means...OPEN! The minute people start shutting doors to others is when we close the doors to the success we have accomplished!
