“For all the girls who think tradition should be continued, go back to the kitchen, stop having sex before you’re married, get out of school and job system, don’t have an opinion, don’t own any property, give up the right to marry who you love, don’t vote, and allow your husband to do whatever he pleases to you. Think about the meaning of tradition when you use it in your argument against us.”—Rebeca Arellano, a senior at Patrick Henry High School in San Diego, CA who was made her school’s first female homecoming king. America’s first lesbian homecoming couple.
