This is Not fair

My name is Jordan Wasatch. I'm a genderqueer female...

I'm here to rant about my high school's unfair policy concerning graduation gowns.

OK, here's the deal. I'm a senior in high school, and I'm about to graduate. (YAAAAY!) But our gowns are segregated by sex. Males wear red, females wear white.

Is it just me, or is that a very backwards policy? I personally am a female, but I'd much, much, much rather wear red than white.

For me, the worst thing is that red and white are colors associated with certain moods. Red tends to be more active and energetic, while white tends to be more passive. Now, I don't know about y'all, but in a place as conservative as Utah, males are supposed to be more active than females.

Seems like a small thing, but it's the straw that breaks my back.

Anything I could do?
