    That's how this is getting labeled at least.

    online new articleJACKSON, Miss. – A northern Mississippi school district will not be hosting a high school prom this spring after a lesbian student sought to attend with her girlfriend and wear a tuxedo.
    The Itawamba County school district's board decided Wednesday to drop the prom because of what it called recent distractions but without specifically mentioning the girl's request, which was backed by the American Civil Liberties Union.
    The student, 18-year-old high school senior Constance McMillen, said the cancellation was retaliation for her efforts to bring her girlfriend, also a student, to the April 2 dance.
    "A bunch of kids at school are really going to hate me for this, so in a way it's really retaliation," McMillen told The Clarion-Ledger of Jackson. Calls to McMillen by The Associated Press late Wednesday went unanswered.
    School policy requires that senior prom dates be of the opposite sex. The ACLU of Mississippi had given the district until Wednesday to change that policy, arguing that banning same-sex prom dates violated McMillen's constitutional rights.
    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."


    And from the comments....
    some dumb F-tardI am sick to death of these "special individuals", with "special needs" keep ruining it for the rest of us who are healthy minded, law abiding individuals.

    Just say "NO" to this negative behavior, what is wrong with the truth?


    Gayo-StevoBravo to the school board for taking a stand against homosexuality and doing what is right. Enough is enough. It would have been better if the lesbos stayed out of the prom and let everyone else enjoy it, but no, they had to get the ACLU involved to push their queer agenda at everyone else's expense. Blame them and not the school board.

    Mississippi expects female prom dates who are not already pregnant to get knocked up on prom night.

    The Lesbian couple was not going to do that, a severe violation of Mississippi traditions

    The board's reaction is disturbing. Nothing good will come of it.

    It´s vicious. They are trying to turn people against the minorities. I hope it backfires. But in the Deep South... meh... icon_rolleyes.gif

    What did she think the school board was going to do buckle please she's dealing with adults and the one adults do not do is give in to kids.

    There are kids who had nothing to do with this who are being affected and they are out money and the most important rite of passage of their young lives. This is crazy. Hopefully the prom will be reinstated.

    She lost the battle and the war. If she had support for her cause before at school, I'm sure it's gone now.

    I hope somebody beats the school board members to a pulp. They deserve no less and no more. They have picked a fight with an 18 year old child. They deserve no respect and no mercy. This girl did nothing wrong. Nothing.

    Man, those black kids who wanted to go to their prom sure were wrong! Those adults who didn't want the races to mix were totally right, and those uppity kids should have just accepted things the way they were.

    Sorry, but your logic is totally wrong here. This student has every right to fight the school board on this, and that they're trying to turn this into a "see what they made us do!" fight is pretty disgusting.

    Go get 'em, ACLU.

    It's a shame the school board overreacts. It's as if they want to foment anger over the issue and direct it toward the lesbian student. I hope she and her family stay safe.

    Why didn't the board just say no to the tux, like they do with everything else?
    Better yet why didn't these girls just do the classic date switch like the gay people did when I was in school (you know last year...)?

    I guess the board was stuck in a lose-lose situation anyway. If they said yes the lesbians could go together there would have been allot of angry parents in the bible belt and quite likely allot of parents wouldn't have let their kids go. If they had just said no they would have faced the just as angry liberal crowd and find themselves in the middle of a civil rights argument, which sure as hell isn't going to help test scores and "school spirit." Canceling it out right just disappointed everyone instead of putting themselves in the middle of a picket sign rampage.

    What I don't get is why lesbians feel a need to portray a heterosexual couple; one man, one women.

    You read this news of discrimination against lesbians and this is what you take away from it?

    'one women'? Wouldn't that just be a woman?

    But there is two women, but one dresses like a man, thus gives the impression they are trying to look like a heterosexual couple of one man one women; unlike most gay men who are happy to be two men together and look like it. A wolf can put on sheep's clothing, yet it's still a wolf.

    Sorry I can't take on every curse in the world, and in the country and city I call home. The gay community and lesbian communities are not one; thats the way lesbians want it; albeit they want to keep their clubs men free, yet wan too intrude on men's clubs, and force the doors open to women; double standards. So until this goes away I have very little interest in lesbians or their struggle.

    I too am a feminist when feminisem is about equality for both sexes.

    In fact the same thing happened down here a few years ago, but the outcome was diffrent. The prom went on, but with no same sex couples. This rule was made clear before the prom even stated, it was a condition of the prom,and it was also made clear to same sex couple would be permitted. The whole thing went off without incident.

    I think it's awesome that she had enough balls to stand up and be counted.
    That kids can do this is a testament to how far we are coming as a society... with such progressive, brave and forward thinking kids LGBT civil rights is only a matter of time.

    Not even the deep south is impervious to progress and the civil rights movement. That girl is a fucking hero to me! I hope she is safe and honored as such... fuck that douche bag school board, they can suck a bag o' blistered dick.

    Times like these days makes me wish that the old, heartless, traditional christian folk DID get their own country. Then, we'd get to have a good comparison of which country does better.. open minded, modern, diversified groups, or old fashioned, closed minded, judgmental ones.

    Until then, everybody is forced to ruin somebody else's fun. I like religious freedom and all, but I like it better when those religions keep to themselves instead of trying to force the destruction of the wall that is intended to be between the Churches and the States (And yeah, both should be thought of as plural, IMHO).

    wow that lesbian was such a bitch. she should have just kept her fucking mouth shut and listened the clearly intelligent and wiser school board.

    seriously though, is it really that big of a deal to shut down the whole prom? really? i mean, what the fuck? they might want to check to see if they're actually lesbians because at least one of the two girls has a huge pair of balls for standing up to them.
