I disagree. I would imagine that the PC public schoolers are in a rage that she cannot attend with her date.
Some of them, surely. But I have always thought that the PC crowd is nowhere near as monolithic as it seems, simply because those who do not agree with the dogma remain silent while those who do scream so loudly they just appear to be speaking for the majority.
And this is the South. Nope, I do not believe those “ladies” are going to be very popular among the majority of their classmates.
