High School Homecoming Goes Gender-Neutral

thepoliticalfreakshow:

A high school in southern Oregon has ousted its homecoming royalty.

Breaking a decades-long tradition, Ashland High School will not crown a king and queen during its annual homecoming football game on Friday, opting instead to honor three standout seniors—known as “Grizzly Royalty”—regardless of their gender and sexual orientation. The decision, which received strong support from the school’s student body and administration, remains an uncommon one among high schools, and some fear a potential backlash.

“Our ultimate goal is not to cause controversy or strife,” student body co-president Jackson Richmond announced in a video published to the school’s online newspaper this week, “but instead to promote equality and acceptance in our school and community, and give more depth to a long-standing tradition.”

In interviews with local media, fellow co-president Brielle Preskenis echoed the inclusive message that the school hopes to promote.

“It used to be that anyone who was gender-neutral or transgender was kind of left in this limbo and they couldn’t identify,” she told the Medford Mail Tribune. “So now it’s open to everyone.”

While a growing number of colleges and universities across the country continue to upend their homecoming king and queen traditions, high schools have been less inclined to do so (though two schools this month have crowned a transgender homecoming king and queen) . One notable exception is Mona Shores High School in Michigan, which switched to a gender-neutral homecoming and prom in 2011 after officials refused to let a transgender teen be homecoming king.

Ashland High hopes other high schools will follow suit.

“It is of utmost importance that we take a leadership role in our county, state and country by moving past the old traditions that come with homecoming and create a path with equity,” Richmond says.

Hehe equality right?

Do you not understand the purpose of this, or why the prices are what they are? Does this need to be explained to you?

Oh yea right, the famous “wage gap” between men and women that has been debunked tons of times! That sure is the right argument to fight sexism with!

Not debunked, misrepresented, as it is a complicated issue. It’s honestly more accurate to call it a PAY gap than a WAGE gap, since there are a myriad of factors at play here. Women DO, on average, make less money than men. That is indisputable, and the margins widen when you include factors of race, disability, and sexuality. 
Here’s a good starter resource on it. 
IF you would like some more in depth reading:
This one is from Stanford about the Gender Pay Gap
This is a New York Times article looking at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s report on the topic.
This one is from the International Trade Union Confederation 
This one is from Oxford, titled Up the Down Staircase: Women’s Upward Mobility and the Wage Penalty for Occupational Feminization
You can also look at the US Census’s look at the Pay Gap
Or the Institute for Women’s Policy Research
Even the United States Government Accountability Office has some information on it.
So yes, the bake sale above is a pretty simplistic little stunt about a complicated economic and social issue. But the fact that it pisses people off sort of makes its point for it. 

Excellent primary sources for those concerned about sex based oppression/ how men continually benefit from female subjugation also I would really like one of those Vegan cupcakes
