ORIGINAL POST, SEPT. 10, 9:41 A.M.: If she wins, a Marina High School homecoming queen candidate would reportedly make history. No, Cassidy Lynn Campbell would not be the first ever to have a tiara placed on her head without bitchy death stares from the runners-up. It's said the 16-year-old Huntington Beach resident would be the nation's first transgendered homecoming queen.

She'll find out whether she received the most votes on Sept. 20, reports CBS2′s Stacey Butler, who spoke with Campbell as the teen prepared for a back-to-school dance Friday.

Refreshingly, Campbell told the reporter the majority of her classmates have embraced her being transgender. She's always been known as a girl to them despite being born a boy named Lance. Hey boy-to-girl transformation videos have hundreds of thousands of YouTube views.

Campbell obviously understands how symbolic it would be to win the homecoming queen crown (although it's an honor just to be nominated blah-blah-blah ...)

"I'm a girl and if my school could recognize me as what I have always wanted, the world has always recognized me my entire life, that would be such an accomplishment," she reportedly told Butler.

Her mother does confide in the piece it is difficult to take haters on social media. No one wants to see their child hurt, physically or emotionally. But in the same breath the mom explains she's embraced her former son becoming her daughter--and being put out there now as a potential homecoming queen.

Mom's words hopefully echo what can be said of society as a whole: "It's amazing, I just think how far we have all come."

I happened onto a nationally broadcast news, (really?! News?!), story about this thing who plays dressup. Funny thing is when he talks it is all pubesent boy. It is a fucking disgusting abomination and how dare any fucking PUBLIC school in this country sanction the entry of a boy as homecoming queen. We are careening to a place where morality doesn't even pretend to exist. I figure the thing was going to end not only with it being the "queen" but with a bucket of pigs blood all over it. Now THAT would have been news worthy.

So if I put vanilla frosting on chocolate cake ..... it's now NOT chocolate because of the outside appearance ???? This MAN is spending hours a day to be what he is NOT. Trying to decieve the world by outward appearance. Those are the facts. No amount of pandering and fantasy can change that. Keep it honest and true.

All I ask is that the truth not be distorted; this is a BOY who won homecoming queen, not a GIRL, and for all those who think otherwise I suggest you go back to science class to learn the difference.

What I feel is sad for all the ignorance here, I suggest you supporters of this read The Bible, the book of Romans through Revelations, there's some reality for ya, and heck, this was written and foreseen thousands of years ago. What I hope is that you do reproduce, that is if you are still what you were born as, think about it, if the whole world claimed they were "born that way, meaning gay," then there would be no more babies born, duh, hello, we are all made in God's image. Chew on that for a while. As for the insulting, well, may God bless your hearts and shut your mouths!!

@Travis Yarbrough Dear Fucking Travis: quit being such a pinhead. Were you born wearing shoes? No, you fucking weren't. But I'll wager you have a fucking pair of fucking stupid shit-hole kicks on you think are the shit, right? Why don't you, in your fucking MALE bimbo pads, go fuck yourself? Why can't you? Because your fucking dick ain't big enough to call yourself a real man. So you pick on a princess.
