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.

Unfortunately for the other students, the school did the right thing. Allowing this type of dysfunctional behavior would send a message to the other students that it's normal and acceptable. Bad company corrupts good character.
It's too bad all the other kids had to suffer because of two losers who simply want to flaunt their freakishness.
I hope the other kids remember what these two did to them. They'll grow up and be the next group of voters some day.

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."

AS these failed social experiments get more and hours under their belt the more obvious it becomes why they have been out of the realm of the ‘norm’ for thousands of years. Now we're to the point where a single couple can deny an entire student body the enjoyment of a social tradition.

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.

And parents can host/chaperon all sorts of off-site proms and students can attend or not based on their freedom of association.

I don't have a date for the prom yet.

There’s a picture of her on the front of the Clarion Ledger.

She’s a BIG GIRL.

I’ve been up in that area. Beautiful country. Looks untouched, farms everywhere, little junk shops and fruit stands all over. And that’s it.

She did this for attention. That part of the state is like taking a walk back through time, in a good way. Solid folks, nice place to raise kids. Decent church going people.

THAT doesn’t belong there. To force everyone else to except it and demand things go her way or else is bull. That tells you right there how selfish she is.

Now she and her girlfriend got that prom cancelled. Ruined it for everyone for what ? No really, for what ?

So she could BE someone ? All anyone will remember is what a hateful thing she did because she only thought about herself.

I agree.
Americans have been in a politically correct slumber. The left believed the time was right to start "Reforming the Nation in their own Image." They went for it and started ramming everything they could down Americas throat. Well, people started choking on it. They spit it out and took a good look at what the left has been feeding them all these years. They noticed it was poison.
I think there will be a big move to bring our freedoms and morals back, but first the left will try to fight to survive. It's going to cause a great deal of chaos, but in the end the cream will float to the top once again. "The meek shall inherit the earth."

re: that lesbian is going to be very unpopular with her classmates

And she will blame their narrow-mindedness and intolerance for her lack of popularity, rather than understanding that it was her self-centeredness that brought about the canceling of the prom and the unhappiness of her classmates. She’s a liberal, and she will never accept that her demands to have everyone live life like she wants to live hers will be a source of problems throughout that life.

It’s only a matter of time until she and her partner file a lawsuit against some faithful, lifelong Catholic landlord whose religious tenants prevent him from renting to them. Or they file against a photographer who declines to shoot their wedding although suggesting any number of other photographers who could do just as well but not find their lifestyle offensive to their religious beliefs.

She’s all for First Amendment rights but only as long as they are used to favor her peculiar view of life and not those who disagree with her. The landlord and the photographer are content to live and let live as long as they don’t have to be a part of it. But for a liberal, live and let live means just the opposite. They are entitled to enjoy the lifestyle they embrace, even if it means others have to violate their beliefs.

They had an agenda to push. I suspect if they wanted to they could have gone with out “dates”, and just showed up an the same time. Neither would have gotten any attention, I am guessing that their sexual confusion is not a secret at the school. This gets media attention and the bleeding hearts can feel sorry for them.

Exactly. The article says both girls are students at the school, so they could simply have each gone to the dance as an individual. Insisting on attending as a romantic couple, with one wearing a tuxedo, is the kind of stupid stunt 18-year-olds think is really edgy and courageous.

Of course. And you can bet, there’s a mother somewhere in the background pushing and egging this on.

That place, everyone knows everyone. The people living there will not take kindly towards what they are doing. I know they do not like the negative attention.

She shoulda knowed better.

I suspect another prom somewhere else only Miss Troublemaker won’t be invited. Private party only. Oh well.

Can they be sued for not having a prom? This could get real interesting. Imagine, a minority having to bear the responsibility for trashing common custom and celebration? Somehow, somewhere, the heteros will be called “homophobic” for establishing common rules of behavior. Oh, the hugh manatee.

A Feb. 5 memo to students laid out the criteria for bringing a date to the prom, and one requirement was that the person must be of the opposite sex.

The ACLU said 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 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."

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

re: “The meek shall inherit the earth.”

I can't see that reference without thinking of the great routine done by the fantastic country comedian Jerry Clower, his routine about playing college football and his first game, a game with a Christian college. Are you familiar with it? If not, I'll look it up and share it!

You are absolutely spot-on with your observations! Push has come to shove and we've been in our politically correct slumber long enough. You've (not YOU, “concerned about politics”, but ‘You’ in the Papal use of the word!) got to know when dealing with liberals that they might have a good idea, but they don't know how to go about implementing it. And they especially don't know when enough is enough. They get started down the road and don't know when to stop.

I told you. But really, if she had kept it low key and just went along nice but NOOOOO. SHE had to have things HER way.

I met a lot of people over that way. They are just plain country folk, doing the things they’ve always done.

If 50% of the kids were gay, then yeah, have your prom the way you want it. But having 2 girls demand things go their way ? I don’t think so.

She sure did bring up that bible fast huh ? It still won’t help. They don’t want her there. She should be embarrassed for what she did.

The article cites not a single student who seemed bothered by the lesbian couple. It seems the administration and not the students are upset by the lesbian couple.

The school web page http://www.itawambaahs.com/ includes a photos link.

But it seems that they are pretty liberal. They have a black student and in one photo he is touching a white girl. Once I saw this photo I knew a lesbian couple was certainly the next step towards decadence.

So? What's wrong with the boy and girl thing? Race and a chosen deviant behavior are like apples and oranges. Race is inherent. Homosexuality is acting out on vile thoughts. It's the same process that's chosen when a man does an animal or gets off on a woman's shoe.

When I was a girl (1970s), my parents went to formal dances a few times a year. I suppose that twenty years earlier, it was even more common for middle-class adults to have tuxedo-and-ball-gown events. However, now it is almost never done.

And my mother never spent the amount of money that is now common for 8th grade girls going to the middle-school “prom.” Mom never paid to have her hair styled for a dance, for example. She had a sensible short haircut, and she washed it and combed it, that’s it.

To me, it makes no sense for schools to hold these events. If people want events like this, families or community groups should organize them privately. I’ve known church groups to hold balls, and community organizations such as the Philippine-American Club. This creates a whole different set of standards for the youth, and keeps the ACLU and grandstanding dingdongs firmly out.

“Itawamba County Agricultural High School”

Not so strange if you know Itawamba County or Mississippi.

The real reason the prom was canceled is, Itawamba is a poor county and can not afford to fight someone as wealthy and powerful as the ACLU. This rural school had another problem back in the winter when a trasfer student from Illinois decided he wanted to be a girl and showed up for class looking like a cheap whore. Another ACLU moment. Think Rural Mississippi and guess the reaction. My guess is the prom will go on but not be sponsored by the school district. A private prom sponsored by some business or group of the normal folks for the normal kids.

Maybe you’re right. The photo doesn’t say anything about the black kids behavior, maybe he gets along by acting white. These girls could just act straight and get male dates to cover their tracks.

The whole problem starts when Jesus cloudied the water with all of that talk about love. Treating others as you would want to be treated or being particularly kind to those who society considers the least of our brothers is a headache. It would have been so much easier if he just made a list of folks we were supposed to hate.

Now these two freaks can feel guilty about ruining the entire event for everyone. (though I doubt they will)

Once again, the majority must change for the minority.
