US school cancels prom to avoid lesbian student bringing a date

quote:

A school in America has decided to cancel its prom dance after a lesbian student demanded she be able to attend with her girlfriend and wear a tuxedo.
...
The ACLU said district officials told Miss McMillen she and her girlfriend wouldn't be allowed to arrive together, that she would not be allowed to wear a tuxedo, and that she and her girlfriend might be asked to leave if their presence made any other students "uncomfortable."

I think it's time for free democracies to invade that inhuman, fundamentalist country.

Prom isn't a basic human right Coincidence. You didn't think we had the right to invade Afghanistan to remove Alqueda after they attacked us.

I don't have any problem with her going but you are over reacting.

Nothing stopping the kids who want one from organizing their own formal dance. They need neither school sponsorship nor permission, as was so aptly demonstrated by the kids in Beaumont, Texas, years ago.

Oh, in that you are mistaken. The "christians" are not stopping them at all, nor have they the power to do so. The only impediment preventing the kids organizing their own prom is their own choices.

The fact they can't turn up together dressed as they please is more ghey than they are.

I'd throw a big ass party and tell all the students to bring a bottle.

And yet here we are in 2010 different scenario but the same Christian backed hate.

How is this "christian backed hate"?

Have the "christians" assaulted the lesbians? No mention of that. All I see is that people who control access to facilities and funds are refusing to lend those facilities and funds to the agenda of persons with whose life styles and choices they disagree.

I rather suspect if it were the local chapter of the American Nazi party demanding to be able to attend the dance is full skinhead regalia, that they'd receive much the same refusal.

It is not hate to refuse cooperation with those with whom you disagree, Large. By so labeling their actions, you are yourself the hater.

Read the article.

quote:
"It is our hope that private citizens will organise an event for the juniors and seniors," district officials said in the statement. "However, at this time, we feel that it is in the best interest of the Itawamba County School District, after taking into consideration the education, safety and well being of our students."

quote:
The ACLU said Miss McMillen approached school officials shortly before the memo went out because she knew same-sex dates had been banned in the past. The ACLU said district officials told Miss McMillen she and her girlfriend wouldn't be allowed to arrive together, that she would not be allowed to wear a tuxedo, and that she and her girlfriend might be asked to leave if their presence made any other students "uncomfortable."

Miss McMillen said she feared she would be thrown out of the prom because "we do live in the Bible Belt."


So, knowing past precedence in regard to this issue, the lesbian in question sought the privilege of attendance dressed in a fashion which many of her classmates would likely find objectionable.

Prom is a privilege, not a right. Any student can be barred from attendance at any school sponsored function for any violation of established rules and policies. In my opinion, the school board's response was well within their discretionary authority, and in no wise was a "hateful" act.

Maybe it was just the tuxedo they hated. Some of those prom outfits are ghastly.

SS. It is A PUBLIC SCHOOL. I don't hate Christians. My brother is a minister so I gotta stay good so that I don't disrupt my clan although I've been approaching that line at my FB page all my clan there. Here anyway I can be free.
But because it is a PUBLIC SCHOOL the Lesbian's parents PAYED FOR THE SCHOOL like everyone else. So to be excluded from a school function is not only prejudicial it's fucking communism or or Marxist. We are supposed to be in a FREE COUNTRY. Not a country where the values of the majority can dictate how the minority should be.
And yes. The whole anti gay movement is Christian based just like pro life and all that because Christians believe in their own freedom but not anyone else's.
Just stating the facts. But I love Christians don't get me wrong. They have really strong family values that I can respect.

AND YOUR OWN QUOTE MENTIONS LIVING IN THE BIBLE BELT SO HAHA!!

So if you find others objectionable then BOO FUCKING HOO GET THE FUCK OVER IT. What really boils me is that these people don't even see it this way. Like they are trying to protect their own freedom at the expense of another. But as long as they win it doesn't matter.

How about the idea that having a Lesbian couple in a prom DOES NOT ENDANGER THE SAFETY AND WELL BEING OF OTHERS?

C'mon Rapture. Where the fuck are you?

Wearing a tux is grounds for removal if you are a woman. I can clearly see how that could be unacceptable for a formal event. Just like you cant wear jeans with holes in them or whatever...I dont know why the gay thing is such a big deal for so many gay people. I dont know why this girl couldnt just go with her date and not make a production out of it, who sends a letter of intent to prom organizers? Oh wait, I do know why all of this is happening, cause shes in high school.
