Same Colored Gowns

This petition had 710 supporters

There has been a large dispute over whether the altering of Ward Melville's traditional cap and gown color sequence is justified. While some of the points are understandable, many of the comments made about this issue are truly appalling and archaic. Tradition, as many emphasize, is not always right. Allowing everyone to feel comfortable and happy on their graduation day is what is ultimately important. These colors should in no way divide us or box us in to ideas we do not agree with. We should all graduate as a united class, accepting our differences and embracing what makes us a diverse population of people in order to improve our society as a whole. And we can only do this by accepting everyone for who they are and respecting their discomforts.
