The high school kids in Buffalo Grove, IL elected a Homecoming king and queen a few weeks back. A jock and a cheerleader. Big news, right? Well, she's the jock and he's the cheerleader and they are both openly gay. Warms my goddamned heart, people. Seriously, it touches me, specifically the part of me that was so scared all through high school. Don't get me wrong, I had a good time then and I had lots of friends and I was Most Likely this and Best that, but it was all premised on being very careful.
