JACKSON, Miss. 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."

What unimagined changes we have seen.
What changes unimagined SHALL we see?
“Itawamba County Agricultural High School”
What a name.
I’d like to see a return to ostracism and shame. They shouldn’t cancel the prom for everyone. They should just exclude homosexual dates, and tell the girl to get professional help — she can be cured.
Good call by the school board.
Sure, the normosexual kids have to forego their prom. But they’ll be paying for these perversexuals’ misconduct throughout their lives. May as well learn that lesson young.
And who knows? Maybe their generation will clean up this mess that my generation was too cowardly to.
As an added bonus, that lesbian is going to be very unpopular with her classmates. I am sure they will manage to find a way to express their displeasure.
Looks like the militant retarded lesbo is owed a good beating by the damaged students...apparently from both sexes if she wants to insist on her “maleness”.
Growing up on a farm, I was amazed that a 1000 pound cow would let itself be controlled by a 30 pound border collie. However, here we are a nation of over 300 million being led around by a handfull of radical homosexuals.
Political correctness was designed to silence anyone from speaking out against the left wing agenda. Political correctness only protects those who are members of left wing special interest groups.
Fortunately for us, Oboma has woken America up, and people are starting to notice what's going on around them. They don't like it. They're starting to speak up and stand up. Right now, it's the Death Care Bill, but now that they've had a taste of political freedom, I don't think the people are going to roll over and go back to bed. I think people are going to demand this country be cleaned back up. They're telling the left wing elite "We're not going to take it any more."
They'll grow up and be the next group of EMPLOYERS some day. Connie and her girlfriend might as well pack and leave now. Their life in that community is over. Twenty years from now, people won't have forgotten who wrecked Senior Prom.
I agree,,,,good call.
So can there be an “unofficial” prom? Maybe the parents can rent the VFW hall if there is one....
And isn’t that how communities (of all kinds) survive? By policing their own, lest they all suffer the consequences of one or two troublemakers?
IMHO, it started with the forcing of no-fault divorce on America by the feminists in the 70’s or so. Another one of those great ideas that caught on with liberal law makers, based on no-fault auto insurance, and was pushed to the limit without waiting to see how it would be treated by the law of unintended consequences. It's been a disaster. Turns out there was a solid grounding for making it difficult for one party of a marriage to decide unilaterally call off the union.
Ethanol is another example of some great liberal idea catching on and lawmakers hopping on the bandwagon with little concern for the law of unintended consequences.
And with the liberals’ inability to own up to making a mistake and clinging to their failed ideas and policies, rather than concede error and fix the problem, it only grows worse.
As the war in Iraq began to turn the corner following the bold stand of George Bush and The Surge the liberal response was to deny the improvements and raise the level of liberal criticism of the war to the level of hysteria. And when that had run it's course, and just when the all the signs were pointing to the wisdom of the surge approach they abandoned the hysterical political criticism to calling for the criminal prosecution of those whose policies had brought about the victory.
Sane with welfare, and unwed mothers,requiring positive ID to vote and trying to make the grade school playground a harmless environment. The list goes on and on.
I know this little diatribe will meet with some flaming, but I would simply challenge those who disagree to tell me what the liberal approach of the last 10 plus years has brought to the life of Americans that worked like they said it would. We've ended up with having to cancel proms, with budget deficits that defy the imagination, with communists and socialists and progressives in the White House and soon females on submarines.
The simple truth is that most, if not all, of these liberal and progressive ideas that sounded great in theory will turn out proving very convincingly not only to not work as advertised, but to do real harm to the fabric of our nation. Promising Rainbow Stew and free unicorn rides to a mal-educated electorate can result in getting their way, but there's no avoiding the consequences of abandoning standards that have served society well for thousands of years.
I am confident a total collapse is imminent at this point. And when it does, what rises from the ashes to replace it will not be another round of social engineering theories that sound like a utopia is as simple as “if it feels good, do it!” What will spring up in its place will be good ol’, corny and restrictive, conservative practices. One man and one woman working as a family unit to raise kids that are taught what makes life work. Men who fight wars to win as quickly and decisively as possible. A tax code that serves to fund the PROPER activities of government and not to further social engineering theories.
They are legion. They make a lot of noise to appear larger and greater in number.
They say 2% of the population is suppose to be actively homosexual, but what they don't mention is the fact that prison inmates are included in those numbers (and there are a lot of prison inmates in America!). These people aren't homosexual by choice. If they want sex, it's the only way to get it. Remove the prison inmates from that number, and you're right. There's nothing but a small, small handful of these sexually dysfunctional people.
This small handful, like womans liberation, is being used to tear down the American family in the name of the Socialist/Communist cause.
I think high school (or junior-high) proms are an idea whose time has come and gone. That type of socializing is no longer a feature of most adults’ lives, so what’s the point of play-acting it for teenagers?
It would be much more useful (and less expensive!) for families or private organizations to hold semi-formal lunches or dinners, at which young adults could practice the manners they will need in modern business or social life.
Best post of the day.
I agree - very sharp observation.
I don't have a date for the prom yet.
