Praise Lesbian Homecoming King, or You're a Bigot

When lesbian Rebeca Arellano was crowned homecoming king at Patrick Henry High School in San Diego, she joined the queen Haileigh Adams, her lesbian counterpart. The school superintendent has since characterized every expressed disagreement with this glorification of sexual deviancy, regardless how civil, as hate-filled.
"For all the girls who think tradition should be continued, go back to the kitchen, stop having sex before you're married, get out of school and job system, don't have an opinion, don't own any property, give up the right to marry who you love, don't vote, and allow your husband to do whatever he pleases to you. Think about the meaning of tradition when you use it in your argument against us."

Students at a San Diego high school elected a lesbian couple as homecoming king and queen over the weekend, a move that has garnered international attention for the couple.

The couple said they were not planning to run and were shocked by the attention they've received.

The couple said they had received a lot of positive support, but that a lot of people were also angry about it, saying that it's wrong for a girl to be king.

Arellano said one of her teachers told her, "Today school is a bit better because of you girls."

"We have a lot of support, but there are also a lot of people who are angry about it," she said. "Anonymous Patrick Henry students are saying they're embarrassed and that it's wrong for a girl to take the spot of king. But there's no other way for us to run as a couple. It's not really fair for us not to have the right to run as a couple."

Adams and Arellano both came out their freshman year of high school, and they began dating in February of their sophomore year. They say their parents were supportive both when they came out and when they started dating.

"I am disappointed that this happy and positive event has recieved national media coverage," Superintendent Bill Kowba said in a statement, "Which has attracted what I can only call a slew of hate calls and emails."

Many of the adults who contacted the school are not residents of San Diego, and their comments were hateful and showed a lack of tolerance, Kowba said.

"I stand behind our students and school staff in supporting the Patrick Henry Homecoming King and Queen," he concluded.

From "Mockery of Tradition? Lesbian High School Couple Named Homecoming King and Queen" by Allison Summers, Christian Post Contributor 10/31/11

"What a disgrace," wrote one user. "Unbelievable how sexually confused our children are becoming due to the social pressures stating that it is 'normal'."

Another commenter wrote, "Okay, this isn't fair by any means because the definition of a king explicitly states it's 'a male sovereign or monarch; a man who holds by life tenure, and usually by hereditary right, the chief authority over a country and people.' This individual here is a female thus she ought to be considered as a queen which is 'a female sovereign or monarch.' All these manipulations in these high school homecoming­s are beginning to become a joke every year."

However, Arellano shot back at the naysayers with a Facebook post asking them to reconsider what the word 'tradition' means before wishing society would revert back to it.
