Kilts could be misconstrued as cross dressing?

I saw this article it was in the AP.

Utah school forces student to change out of kilt

Sun May 17, 3:52 pm ET
WEST HAVEN, Utah – The principal of a Utah middle school has been asked to apologize for forcing a kilt-wearing student to change his clothes.
Weber School District spokesman Nate Taggart says Craig Jessop has been asked to extend an apology to 14-year-old student Gavin McFarland of Hooper after the school official's comments Wednesday.
Gavin says he wore the kilt twice in the past two weeks to Rocky Mountain Junior High as a prop for an art project. Jessop told the boy that the outfit could be misconstrued as cross-dressing.
Taggart says the district recognizes the kilt as an expression of the boy's Scottish heritage and that the kilt was not inappropriate.
Kilts are traditional Scottish apparel generally worn by men for formal or special occasions.

I was outraged! Craig Jessop you need to do some research on Scotland and Kilts you need apologize no only to Gavin McFarland, but to all the Scots and to cross dressers. I am a firm believer of people wearing what they feel comfortable in and not being dictated to by fashion.
