2 homecoming queens?

Postby EastStang » Sat Oct 02, 2021 8:46 pm

Maybe we misheard but it sounded like they announced 2 homecoming queens and no king. What was that about?

The best two are awarded. Four of the top five finalist were women.

However, guys need all the boost they can get.

From a pure metrics standpoint, like getting a promotion at your job, great.

Has this ever happened in the history of SMU? And in any other college?

Not to disparage the talented women who won. But this is ridiculous. It will go viral and we're going to be laughing stocks.

Homecoming Royalty vs Queens. There was a lot more involvement this year but the Greeks still won most, if not all, of the top spots. Wonder if any of the finalists were Hunt Scholars.

It’s a Homecoming King and Queen. That’s it. No changes. Had to explain to my 12ur daughter on the hill between pizza box slides, that people make dumb decisions for dumb reasons. Congrats to SMU for being the shining example.

Offensive to have an award named after a king, who oppresses marginalized people in society (and is also a cisgender). Just send the meteor now so I don’t see how bad it is in another 15 years

:lol: mission accomplished.


But yes incredibly stupid. Why even bother then? Can we just call it a pageant then?

Dudes are so fragile. If it's on the merits and 4 of 5 finalists were women then there's a chance the top two were women.

Would rather see them take the approach of there being just one top “royal”. This person could then choose what the prefer to be called (e.g. Homecoming King, Queen, or Royal).

Who cares? The whole Homecoming Court thing is ridiculous. It is nothing for SMU to be embarrassed about but I'd be fine with them just doing away with it all together. If you like embarrassing, pointless traditions go enroll at A&M.

wait, is this still a thing? seems like 1950s ... kind of a dumb thing ... i like the concept of homecoming ie people coming back to their alma mater and celebrating it, etc. but a homecoming king and queen seems like a middle school thing from 50 years ago LOL ...
