A lesbian challenged the school district's policy of forced gender assignment when it comes to prom dates. She wanted to bring her girlfriend. Instead of complying with the ACLU's request to bring the school into the modern age they decided to cancel the entire event, effectively punishing the entire class and making the girl out to be the villain. Basically because she demanded the right to bring the date of her choice they decided it would be better to make everyone suffer.
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- A northern Mississippi school district decided Wednesday not to host a high school prom after a lesbian student demanded she be able to attend with her girlfriend and wear a tuxedo.
The Itawamba County school district's policy requires that senior prom dates be of the opposite sex. The American Civil Liberties Union of Mississippi had given the district until Wednesday to change that policy and allow 18-year-old Constance McMillen to escort her girlfriend, who is also a student, to the dance on April 2.
Instead, the school board met and issued a statement announcing it wouldn't host the event at Itawamba County Agricultural High School in Fulton, ''due to the distractions to the educational process caused by recent events.''
There's no logical correlation between the "educational process" and a prom. The prom doesn't educate, it's a reward and a rite of passage. The school district fuckheads think they're going to teach this eighteen year old a lesson in peer pressure, and teach the community who's boss. Now the entire world knows what heartless, spineless assholes you are.
