    I think he should have been allowed to wear make-up. I've seen girls look this in school, so why shouldn't the boys be able to do it too?

    Yeah I know that particular kid is kind of a tool, but im upset at how everyones discouraging men being feminine in this thread


    Yes, because men aren't females. There's a difference between having compassion/sensitivity and being an estrogen pill away from being total female.

    Like Oldschoolgamer said, boys should be boys, girls should be girls. Why do people want to change that?? Why is that a bad thing??

    I agree with dmoney.
    There are lots of ways a guy or a girl can express themselves and still either be feminine or in his case masculine. If you notice the mom is siding with the son per usual instead of saying "You know what son the school is right, your a boy and boys should not be wearing makeup. Now get in the bathroom and wipe that shit off your face. Also if you get in trouble again for this I'm putting your ass in a private school where you will have to wear a suit and tie everyday. Do you want that? Now stop crying or I'm going to give you something to cry about.
    Emo kid: I'm going to kill myself
    Mom: Keep talking like that and I'm going to put you in military school."

    These parents need to nip this in the bud before it perpetuates. If you noticed there wasn't a dad no where to be found. I think this kid needs like many boys a male role model to teach him how to be a man.

    He seems like a good kid, just needs some tough love.

    I agree that boys and girls are different from each other, just like men and women are different from each other. I'm a conservative after all. But still, make-up isn't something, that's natural for either boys or girls, or men or women. And there have been cultures, like ancient Egypt, where everybody, men and women and boys and girls, would wear make-up. So I don't see why make-up is almost mandatory for girls, when it's controversial, if a boys want to use it. I'm a girl, but I choose to not wear make-up. So why can't a boy choose to wear it?

    I don't think girls under 18 should wear makeup. A little bit to hid a pimple is ok, but there is no reason for a 12 year old girl to wearing it. For older guys a little makeup is OK. I have put a little on my face when I had a big zit. That boy isn't wearing it to improve his appearance, he's doing is to fulfill an image. BTW I think the reason Hollywood actors age so bad is because all the makeup they wear damages the skin.

    I agree that it's unnecessary for twelve-year-olds to wear make-up. They're a bit too young for it. As a matter of fact, no teenager should have to use make-up (except the kind, that hides zits), because they're still so young and fresh, so they shouldn't have to hid anything or improve their appearance too much. However, a twelve-year-old is old enough to start making some decisions of their own. And that includes what clothes to wear and whether they should wear make-up or not. So if I was a mother of a twelve-year-old, who wanted to start wearing make-up, I would think it was unnecessary, but at that age, I would let him or her start making such decisions himself/herself. Or rather, I would talk to my son or daughter and explain how unnecessary it is for a twelve-year-old to use make-up. But I wouldn't punish him or her, if he or she did it anyway.

    Thanks bassman i found it, i have mixed feelings on this video on one side of the coin its no big deal for the kid to were makeup but on the other side if he starts dressing all girly and acting like a girl then thats where theres a problem. Oh ya that badge is also very hypocritical to the schools policies

    Chris Crocker actually LOOKS good as a girl LOL. Like he was meant to be one or something. At least I think he looks better than alot of girls i've seen that wear to much makeup. In the case of Chris Crocker, except for him enjoying the penis, I think he really WANTS to be a girl. He doesn't want their private parts, just the rest of it

    Well, I like I said many times before. Where did these stupid rules come from? A man must be this way, a girl must be another way. I think its stupid. If a man doesn't want to be a macho man he shouldn't have to, and if a girl doesn't want to be a girly girl she shouldn't have to either. Its just colored powder, it doesn't hurt anyone so it shouldn't be anyone's business. Im sure all the transgendered males didn't just wake up one day and decide they wanted to be girls, its been in them since they were born, and im sure as hell that they would do anything to NOT feel that way because of the negative attention they get from people like you, they just want to be themselves!

    Anyway this topic is old now.

    Just grow the fuck up everyone and get over your little "i'm being me" or "WHO MADE THESE RULES!!!!!!!! WAHHH!!!!!!" faze. You're not 14 anymore.

    Stand up and defend for something worthwhile. Not some sissy whining about wearing make up.

    Nick it's the do what every you want midsets like yours is why things are so messed up these days. We need to go back to some of our old school ways of thinking and sexuality roles is one of them.

    Reading some of these comments puts me in the mood to beat up the next person who looks at me funny. Which comments you ask, I will say not. I seriously don't like some certain members here any more though, and it's hard to get me mad.

    Half of the things said here remind me of the mindset in the trials of Roger Williams and Anne Hutchinson, and that's not a good thing.

    Edit: And by the way, I dress like a guy. Would of you naysayers like to beat the shit out of me because I'm what you could consider a dyke?

    Exactly.
    There's got to be a line drawn somewhere. I mean, come on. Another thread that was made a while back said that some 14 year old dude started CRYING just because he got dirt on his pants. 10 years ago you couldn't even imagine that. Now its not so out of the ordinary.

    And you know what else? Most of the times those people are dressing and acting like that not because that's who they are or how they're expressing themselves. They're doing it cause it's practically a fad now.
    If you're naturally gay or lesbian, more power to ya. My problem is that straight guys and girls faking that way just to fit a trend and are now trying to change the rest of society's thinking just so they can get away with their fad.

    To be honest, I don't even see why gay people need to do that to begin with... if you like people of your gender, cool, but why does it make some of them feel like they need to dress up as the other gender (I mean to the extent that they could actually be mistaken for it)? Seems like another cry for attention to me.

    ...Dammit, I promised myself I wouldn't post here again, but then more discussion came up.

    WTF is a chode scraping? Is that some saying in Germany? I know a chode is referring to the private area. So I'm guessing your trying to insult me. You're another example of freedom of speech is OK unless it goes against your new age liberal way of thinking.

    I have no big issue with a kid wearing makeup, a Mohawk, body piercing or what ever the case may be. I don't even have an issue with someone be gay. My issue with this story is the school rules say no and the kid is saying it's sexism. Even worst his mom is siding with him which explains why he's doing it in the first place. Yes I do feel school is a place to learn and there should be some rules as far a dress. Most jobs have it so why should we lead kids to think they can always dress how they want. School is not these to express yourself, it is there to teach you.

    I sorry if you disagree, but I truly feel with all my heart that guys in this day and age have issues with sexuality due to this "do what you want and what feels right mindset" as well as the feminist movement that often times make masculinity out to be a bad thing. I don't think we should force boys or girls to live up to a strict code, but at the same time we need to set some rules how a boy should dress or act. Yes this means raising boys not to be wimps or sissys. Most of it is just setting good examples and raising them in a healthy environment.
