Switch Day - Sissies Through History

There was a popular stunt that many schools employed to boost school spirit in the 1950's! They would have a Switch Day; a day when the cheerleaders came to school as boys and the team came dressed as girls!
It was all good fun and everyone shared a laugh but when the boys showed up in saddle shoes and bobby sox the next day some were concerned.
When the team showed up in poodle skirts and crinolines at the dance on Friday as the dates of the rival team people realized that something was wrong but they found it was too late to switch them back!!!!
The lawsuits from the boys families nearly bankrupted the school system and Switch Day faded into memory!!!!

  1. This is sad. To think that lawyers and their lawsuits ruined such a wonderful institution.
