Didn't I Read this on Fictionmania?

A 17 year-old boy dressed as a girl to take the Regents exam for an unnamed female student. This isn't the kind of publicity we need. I know, the suspect probably isn't really one of us anyway. It just seems like every time I turn around, there's a negative portrayal of trans persons in the news. Last year we had the Burger King robbery, and the Walmart bank robbery. A couple of years ago, there were the drag queens robbing clothing stores in New Orleans. Now, we get this.

Edit: I forgot something. If this story had appeared on Fictionmania, the boy would have passed flawlessly. Moreover, he would have been HOT, and assorted characters would have drooled over him, culminating in a scene where he makes out with the teacher giving the exam. Afterwards, it would be revealed that the test was merely a pretext for setting up said encounter.
