Twirps win

Cross-dressing, a homecoming tradition in the East Texas town of Spurger, has been banned because a mother complained it encouraged homosexuality.

As a substitute for “TWIRP Day,” the schools ranging from elementary to senior high decided to hold “Camo Day” — with black boots and Army camouflage to be worn by everyone who wants to participate.

TWIRP stands for “The Woman Is Requested to Pay.” The original idea was to encourage high school girls to play the male role by buying sodas for boys. I’m not sure what Camo Day is meant to encourage.

  1. “I’m not sure what Camo Day is meant to encourage.”

    Obviously, fetishism.

  2. Seriously, one person complains and a tradition that has gone on for generations is ended. They’re starting to sound like the FCC…

  3. For high school students, I don’t find it a problem (if done in jest, such as the football players dressing like cheerleaders and vice versa, and not part of a “celebrate diversity” thing), but it is just weird for elementary school students!!!!
