Update: Lesbians Sent to Wrong Prom Location

Postby StlSluggers » Wed Apr 07, 2010 10:11 am

This story just floors me. For those of you who missed it, here's a quick summary:

  1. Lesbian wants to go to prom with her sophomore girlfriend.
  2. Since her date is an underclassman, she files the request to bring her girlfriend.
  3. The school denies her. They make up a lot of bs reasons in the process, primarily that she can't wear a tuxedo.
  4. She gets the media and the ACLU involved.
  5. School retaliates by canceling the prom entirely.
  6. Parents begin to set up their own prom for the kids.
  7. Judge rules that the school violated her First Amendment rights in denying her the option to wear a tuxedo.
  8. The judge also refused to force the school to hold a prom because it was too late to do so.
Okay, so you're up to speed now. Here's where things get really :-X ed up:


You read that correctly: The entire parent-student group lied to seven kids and sent them to the wrong location while they went off and held their own prom somewhere else. Why did the kids do this to her? One of them attempted to explain it on her Facebook page, even though some lawyers apparently made her take it down later.

But seven kids showed up at the fake prom, right? So you have the two lesbians. Who were the other five? Some people have said that the other five kids were all from the special education program, which - if true - completely undermines whatever righteous indignation the student body could have attempted to claim during this whole flap.

You guys should just build a wall that cuts "those" particular states off.
They can become their own inbred country.
Problem solved.

I don't get people. Why on earth would anyone care who someone else goes to prom with or whether they wear a dress or tuxedo? Are people really that afraid/enraged by homosexuality? Were parents afraid that allowing two girls to go to prom together would somehow turn their own kids gay? What motivates people to act like this?

This.

Maybe that is how "someone" has told them to act. ;-7

And the South wonders why its stereotypes exist. This is unbelievable. :-t

I've been planning on writing on this issue for a first amendment opinion paper. Interesting development to say the least. :-{
