GHS Headmaster Chris Winters, has announced that starting this year, GHS graduates will wear “gender neutral” pink graduation gowns, putting an end to the tradition of boys being forced to wear red and girls white robes .
“For too long,” Dr. Winters told FWIW, “we’ve seen our transvestites, gay, lesbian and sexually-conflicted students bullied and tormented by their peers. I’ve heard too many stories of such students avoiding their graduation ceremony out of boys – or rather, boys who identify as girls, fear of being teased for wearing white gowns, and vice versa. It’s time to put a stop to that.
“While students will of course still be free to express their authentic selves by dressing as they like – push-up bras for the gentlemen, for instance, or leather leggings for the young ladies, we feel that most will respond positively to this elimination of a choice between red or white. The blending of white and red into pink will let them show that they care, and are sensitive to the needs and wants of all their peers.”
