prom teen lesbians, Constance McMillen Yet another off-the-wall lawsuit is sparking debate, this time in Mississippi. A lesbian teenager, Constance McMillen, declared her intention to show up for the senior prom wearing a tuxedo with her female date. School officials gave the idea a thumbs-down, which, of course, sparked the interest of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) — a long-time leftist front group that never saw a sordid cause they didn’t like. With the parents’ blessings, attorneys for the girl confronted school officials, claiming they had violated the girl’s free-expression rights and threatening a lawsuit. So the Itawamba County School District canceled the April 2 prom rather than give in.

Now the girl in question has the gall to be upset because she is “facing hostility” from classmates who (understandably) blame her for “ruining” their senior year, and she is suing the school to try to force them to put on the prom.

No doubt the ACLU can be counted on to declare such expressions of disdain by students “hate speech.”

Where are all these prickly parents of loony kids coming from? They seem to be everywhere these days, as if every adult doesn’t have enough to do, what with nonstop bureaucratic paperwork, cellphones to program, and “traffic” cameras to negotiate?

And they seem to have been popping out of the woodwork for years. Such parental behavior didn’t begin when Michael Newdow, a non-custodial parent, filed suit against Sacramento-area Elk Grove School District in March 2000 to have the words “under God” removed from the Pledge of Allegiance on the grounds that the words constituted an endorsement of religion, and therefore violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and who later spearheaded an effort to have “In God We Trust” removed from U.S. coins and “so help me God” banned from the oath of office.

It didn’t originate with parents challenging dress codes, or with folks who balked at “Eurocentric” curricula. It didn’t start when illegal immigrants began demanding bilingual classes (http://www.bilingualeducation.org/pdfs/NCLB.pdf), or when students started petitioning for unisex dorms and bathrooms.

Ah, so many lawsuits, so little time…

Of course, the facts as they are reported, show the schoolboard to be the villians, not the girl who *gasp* wanted to go to prom. For fucks sake.

Right because it's the school board trying to force deviancy onto the student body.:rolleyes:

I think the school board was being childish. It's a dance, not a school-sponsored orgy. The most overt sexual thing that happens during the school-sponsored part of the night is dancing, kissing and that's about it. Straight girls dance together when they can't get the boys out on the dance floor, anyways.

It's a public school. Gay kids have all the same rights in a public school that straight kids do.

WRONG!

Its about a girl who was DICTATING what she wanted and she was slapped down. The school board acted in the appropriate manner...

You know how conservatives are always saying that people don't have the right to not be offended? This falls under that. Conservatives don't have the right to not be offended by gay people. It's a public school. The school board is wrong to punish the entire senior class by not having a prom because they disapprove of the sexual orientation of one couple.

The gay kids' parents pay school taxes just like the straight kids' parents. The USSC has overturned the laws against homosexuality, even if gay marriage is not legal in most states. That's the law of the land, love it or leave it, as they used to tell the hippies in the 60s.

If students and parents don't like that, they can pay to put their kids in a private school.

You still don't get it. She was pushing an AGENDA, not wanting to go to a prom. Now, you can twist, contort, rationalize...whatever you like. You cannot deny the fact she was attempting to foist her agenda upon the class, the school and the board. She got told to shove it, as she should have.

The rights that were exercised were from the school Board who exercised their right to cancel the prom. The rights that were violated were the rights of the entire senior class to have a traditional prom.

The Ass Clown Lesbian Union (ACLU) stepped in as usual to ensure that the majority was offended in the biggest spectacle possible to push their anti-American agenda down our throats yet again.

First off, the students see her every day....

... and secondly, they CANCELED the entire event!

The girl was gonna show up with her girlfriend and a tux, not with a bomb strapped to her chest. They could have easily refused her entry. If they really felt compelled to act out their irrational, and hateful prejudice, they could have done so easily without canceling the event. As if they are powerless to eject a student from a prom?

Yes, I do get it. Everyone who is opposed to gay people living their lives openly accuses those who try to do so of having an agenda. Her agenda consisted of going to prom with the date of her choice. As there is no longer anything criminal about a female dating another female or a male dating another male, a public school's board does not have the right to deny her on the basis of gender and sexual orientation. Any couple who breaks the rules about PDA at prom should be kicked out, regardless of their orientation.

If the school board and straight students are offended that a gay couple is present at prom, too bad. They don't have the right to be protected from ever seeing gay people in public. The school board has an agenda, too-to either have a straights-only prom or no prom at all.

Everybody has an agenda, whatever side of an issue he or she is on.

Um, lets see, the school board acted on their right to deny the girls their request. Girls drag ACLU in and throw lawsuits around. Board has the option of being sued for no doubt obscene amounts of money and bad press, or cancel the whole shindig and just tick everyone off, but not have to pay any money.

I don't think the girls going should have been the huge issue that it turned into, but maybe if the ACLU was running around throwing everything Christian or conservative or historically accurate out of our schools, maybe everyone would have been a bit more open.

The school board had another option-allow the girl and her date to attend. They chose to cancel the prom.

They chose decency, period. I hope to God we see more decisions go this way, and stop this slow slide into the immoral morasse...

Look reality is that the two girls could both have come properly attired and 'without dates' as it were - no one could have said much. But they're trying to force acceptance and want the one girl to dress inappropriately for a formal event. She announced her intentions to flout the rules and now wants everyone to bend over backwards for her. Bullshit.

God you are such a fucktard. I love how the people who take up the side you disagree with are automatically irrational, hateful, and prejudiced. Like it or not - proms have dress codes. Her wanting her girl friend to wear a tux is no different than the boy who wanted to wear a dress. It's all about pushing an agenda - and trying to FORCE acceptance. These girls could just as easily have shown up together in dresses 'dateless' and had prom with everyone else. BUT NO. She had to announce her intention to violate the rules in an attempt to force acceptance of her deviant lifestyle. :rolleyes:
