Will Popular High School Gays Also Suffer Curse of Sad Later Lives?

With a gay couple named prom king and queen in Sanford, Maine, and an alleged lesbian-gay male prom king and queen pair at a charter school in Hialeah, FL, and a trans prom queen and gay male prom king in Davie, Florida, one must ask: are the kids actually alright? Well, probably. The downside is that, allegedly according to alleged students in Florida, their prom queen is allegedly kind of a gossipy meanie. But hey, that's the very definition of equality, when mean girls can come in any stripe and connive their way to the most important and meaningful social position in high school! Don't worry, young people. Everyone popular in high school gets her comeuppance later on. Wait till your 10th high school reunion, when all the popular people come back sad and poorly dressed and puffy-faced and grey.

I could tell it was prom season this weekend because it was really hot, the M*A*S*H reunion was on, and I danced with nobody.

Oh, come on! All of them (i.e. a subset of them) get to fondly reminisce that the best years of their lives were spent at McFatter Tech.

Stuff and nonsense! Anyone who believes in these supposed "gossipy, mean" gays is clearly a homophobe.

I just kind of always assumed gays wanted the right to marry so they would be able to be huge drama queens abut the inevitable divorces… just like straights.

Yet who's still left out in the cold? The socially unpopular, socially-awkward kids with telekinetic power.

If gay teens are now accepted and popular instead of mocked and reviled, who is going to make all the interesting art and literature 15-20 years from now?
How many puffy car salespeople drinking in Bennigan's while talking wistfully about senior prom does the world really need?

@City_Dater A thousand times, this. Accept all the gay kids (and other outcasts) everywhere, so that they can all be happy–but remember, happiness does not a thriving culture make. It takes some major league unhappiness to make great art. (Fine art, pop culture–whatever.)
