Texas school district scraps alleged 'cross-dressing' day
Boys in the Spurger, Texas, school district won't be wearing dresses Wednesday and girls aren't going to be putting on men's suits. That after a parent complained about a so-called "cross-dressing" day. According to the tradition, boys and girls reverse social roles for one day during homecoming week. It lets the older girls invite boys on dates, open doors and pay for sodas. It also calls for guys to dress like girls -- and girls like guys. However one parent complains the practice has homosexual overtones. School officials call that statement "inflammatory and misleading." Still, the tradition is being scrapped and the district will hold "Camo Day" instead -- with black boots and Army camouflage to be worn by everyone who wants to participate.
