An American school has been forced to axe a cross-dressing fashion show featuring eight-year-old boys in women's clothing.
Parents in New Jersey were sent letters telling them their boys must wear female clothes - suggesting cheerleader outfits and poodle skirts
The show at Maude Wilkins Elementary School was supposed to mark Women's History Month, but sparked outrage from some mums.
"My son was very upset," said Janine Giandomenico. "He said, 'Mommy, please don't make me do this.'"
Stacy Bowen, a mother of two young children, added: "I was just so outraged. I find it completely alarming that a school would do this."
In a 16-page pack sent home with students, teacher Tonya Uibel informed parents that all students in her third grade class would have to participate in the activity.

“My son was very upset,” said Janine Giandomenico. “He said, ‘Mommy, please don’t make me do this.’”
And New Jersey is one of the least restrictive states when it comes to Homeschooling.
Its all part of their consistent effort to turn men in this nation into sensitive women. I am very grateful to be married to a wonderful woman as she is grateful to have married a MAN.
“I am very grateful to be married to a wonderful woman as she is grateful to have married a MAN.”
Y’all are soooo old fashioned. /S
“In a 16-page pack sent home with students, “
It’s so nice to see a teacher spending her time focusing on this activity, instead of wasting time on such things as history, or arithmetic, or grammar.
All the boys should just refuse. Let them be sent to the principal’s office and given detention. THEN, the parents can sue. This is outrageously insensitive to the male gender. It is anti-diversity.
I cannot even imagine anyone trying this 50 years ago.
Does all remember the 3 R’s? In our school the 3 R’s are Respectful, Responsible and Ready to learn? That has been eating at me for awhile now. Really????? I need to take my children out of public school and Home school!!!
or even something as daunting as geography.
Is this story a hoax?
the “war against boys” and manhood/masculinity continues
I’m sure the leftists behind this thought it would be a nice way to produce more feminized males and they’ll simply continue to pursue countless other strategems toward that end.
I see nothing wrong here. They’re just preparing them for the workplace of today. Physically castrating them would be too painful so this is the next best thing.
“Is this story a hoax?”
No more than “Public Education” is...
50 years ago, the Principal would have been fired and brought up on charges of moral depravity. America was controlled by sane people back then.
No it is true. I live in NJ and this story is all over the news here.
I suspect you are correct on all accounts, except for the “mildly retarded” part. No qualifier is likely required.
“The show at Maude Wilkins Elementary School was supposed to mark Women’s History Month”
Gee... the teacher could have asked the students to find and report on a woman in their family, neighborhood, state, or nation who made a difference in the quality of women’s lives, and posted their info on the school walls.
But, no. The ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW was a much better idea.
