If you want to "pick your nose"
Go home, lock your door and close the drapes.
Use both hands if you want to.
But don't do it around me
There's a bigger issue here (well even bigger than the fact that someone actually, if just partially, AGREED with me on something), my friend.
I have two daughters in taxpayer-supported public schools, the oldest will be a high school freshman next year.
I don't think that it's necessary or appropriate in any POSSIBLE way for the "needs" of special people like this goof to be accomodated for (through the likely modification of school dress code to allow for "him" to cross-dress) when the result
of that is that kids, DAUGHTERS like mine are then forced to deal with issues like this.
(and no, I'm not foolish enough to think that I can put my little princesses in plastic bubbles and shield them from all of the evil and unplesantness of the world, but I know damn well that I can protect them from environments that include things like that as long as they are legal minors through involvement in their social activities and monitoring of those they choose as friends and where they go...my efforts to preserve their innocence and belief that the world is a beautiful place as long as I possibly can shouldn't be stomped on by a perceived "need" to allow expression of some 17-year old's self-perceived sexual identity, particularly if he's one of say 2,000 students in a school)
Holy shit, when did I turn into my grandfather?
