School Principal Orders Boy To Remove Costume After Dressing as Elsa On Disney Day

Austin Lacey, an eighth-grade student at Ethan Chase Middle School in Menifee, California, found himself in hot water for dressing like a Frozen princess for the school’s “Disney Day.” School officials deemed it “inappropriate” and confiscated the costume.

“This action was taken in accordance with district policies. At no time was there an indication that the student was expressing any particular message. The Principal’s action was based upon the need to stop a general disruption to the school environment,” Romoland School District Superintendent Dr. Julie Vitale said in a statement released to the media.

Lacey and his mother disagree. He says his costume was popular with fellow students until the principal forced him to remove the blue dress and long blonde wig.

“[Lacey] was later informed that the principal does not believe that boys should be dressed like girls,” his mother Brooke Francev told reporters. “I can’t believe that there are still people out there that hold those beliefs, especially on a day when it was all intended in good fun. It really shouldn’t have been an issue.”

“My son, personally, he’s not a transgender student,” she said. “But through this, he’s really taken a stand on just the rights that all people have.”

Dr. Vitale said in her statement that the school district “prides itself on having policies and practices that support all students regardless of gender identity or gender expression.”

For most Americans, tonight’s debate was the most time they’ve ever spent with Donald Trump. With any luck, it filled them with horror. For sheer unhinged lunacy, Trump was hard to beat. He can’t ever admit that he makes a mistake, so he doubled down on his birtherism lies.  He denied saying things he was proven to [...]

It Only Took Twenty Minutes For Trump To Unleash His Dom Side

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Well, that didn’t take long. Donald Trump decided that the way he proves he looks presidential is to start shouting over the woman in the room (and the African-American moderator). Unfortunately for him, Hillary isn’t a sub. If anything, she’s showing that she’s the dom here by goading Trump. Her line that he’s not paying any taxes [...]

Donald Trump Kicks Off The Debate By Thanking His Dad and The Housing Crisis

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Donald Trump is off to a great start: he acknowledged that he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and that he hoped to profit off the housing crisis.  And God bless Clinton for saying that Trump lives in his own reality. If by reality, you mean make-believe universe, that’s totally accurate.
