Letter to the Editor

American tradition

Monday, May 14, 2007

Dear Editor,

Regarding Mr. Desautel's letter concerning the activities tolerated at McCook High: ["Defining deviancy down" (http://www.mccookgazette.com/story/1203860.html)] the vast majority of transvestites are completely heterosexual males according to any legitimate study on the subject.

And while there are "drag queens" in the gay community, very few homosexuals cross dress. Hey, the Marl-boro man was gay after all.

And at good-old Indianola High, as a freshman, I was required to wear a female volleyball suit and high heels with a flower in my hair for freshman initiation.

Another classmate (male) was required to wear a dress, matching purse and hat, and if I recall correctly high heels. Those experiences had nothing to do with with our sexual orientations. Each of us I am sure were the same before, during, and after.

Know I laugh heartily when recalling that experience all these many years latter (about 40 years).

And about the homosexual agenda -- the only agenda out there is equal rights for all our citizens. Isn't it " ... One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."?

Tolerance is a Christian, a family and an American value.

And high school fun is an American tradition.
