    "Photo: He Is kinda cute and looks like a girl.The kid will be up for a sex change before long with a face like that ,he's already into being a Transvestite !"

    Jonathan Escobar says he chooses to wear clothes that express himself. Skinny jeans, wigs, "vintage" clothing and makeup are the staples of his wardrobe.

    "I don't consider myself a cross-dresser," he said. "This is just who I am."
    But the 16-year-old says an assistant principal at North Cobb High School told him last week he needed to dress more "manly" for school, or consider being home-schooled. He had only been a student at the school for three days.

    "I told myself I can't accept this," said Escobar, who wore a pink wig to school last Wednesday.

    Escobar said the assistant principal told him his style of dress had caused a fight between students at the school. Two days later, he withdrew himself from the Kennesaw school.

    "You can't wear clothing that causes a disruption," said Jay Dillon, spokesman for Cobb County schools.

    Dillon said he believed Escobar arrived at school in a dress and heels. But Escobar said he never wore a dress. He says he opted for "skinny" jeans all three days with flats.

    The district lists the dress code on its homepage. The rule states that students should "refrain from any mode of dress which proves to contribute to any disruption of school functions."

    School administrators and teachers are the final judge of the appropriateness of clothing, according to the rule.

    Escobar said he moved to Cobb County from Miami to live with his older sister. His Florida school didn't have an issue with the way he dressed, but his parents did. His sister, Veronica Escobar, urged her parents to let Jonathan come to live with her. Now she says she's shocked by what has happened.

    "I didn't think they would take it this far," Veronica Escobar said.

    Jonathan Escobar says he wasn't a disruption in the classroom, but he attracted attention in the lunchroom. "Everybody was surrounding me," he said.

    If you're going to do a bad Wynona Rider imitation, you should do it on your own time.

    I live in Cobb County. The asst principal did this kid a BIG favor. I think dressing like this would have gotten this kid a LOT of attention at NCHS that he'd wished to hell he'd never have gotten. Adults around here don't want boys dressing like girls. But they aren't nearly as adamant on the subject as other boys would be. You just don't do this in Cobb County.
