I Identify As A ....

Meanwhile, an Albuquerque eighth-grader identifies himself as "gender fluid" — which he defines as "sometimes as a boy, sometimes as a girl."

He decided he wanted to wear a dress to the school's end of the year dance. He says the principal told him he'd be sent home if he showed up dressed that way. He says "The girls are allowed to cross-dress, so why can't I?"

The school says the boy's story isn't so. It says he will be able to attend the dance in a dress if that's what he chooses — so maybe the whole story is made up, a publicity stunt. As of now, we don't know. But he got himself on the TV news.

This would be really funny if there weren't a bunch of folks taking stuff like this so seriously.
