Alani Creano started this petition to Students of South Middleton School District

           So for every graduation there was in Boiling Springs Highschool we wore a traditional gown. it was purple for girls, gold for boys since 1872.

What the gowns looked like before the dumb change happened

this is what the gowns looked like after the change >:(

           Until recently, one of the graduating kids had complained on how they should just change the gowns colors so everyone wears the same thing, since it was ¨rude to transgender kids¨. Everyone was outraged and we want a change.

           We love tradition and we want our gowns back! No one wanted this to happen but one kid! For the spirit of the bubblers we demand in our schools name to bring back our traditional gowns for years to come. Im a huge supporter of the lgbtq+ community and so is the rest of our school district, but since when did colors offend peoples sexuality or gender? It shouldnt and thats why we need a petition for this.

           Its honestly ridiculous that no one has had a problem with the gown colors(and still wouldnt if they hadnt changed it) but they change it anyways. I understand why the school board did this. It was because they want to be seen as equal, by supporting the lgbtq+ communities beliefs on the same level as non lgbtq+ members. Its great that they listened, but they didnt listen to the other 400ish kids in the school who DIDNT want it to happen. Which is just as insulting. One person with a belief that is vacant and untrue about sex discrimination, vs. 400 students who support them but strongly prefer to KEEP the traditional colors.

 

          It may not seem like a big deal but we have had this tradition for over 100 years now, and the fact that someone changed it for more years to come just over a strong opinion is ridiculous. Unfair towards all of us who want to graduate with the same traditional caps and gowns our siblings and parents and family and friends graduated with. CHANGE!
