Constance McMillen, an 18-year-old Mississippi lesbian student, asked officials at Constance McMillen, an 18-year-old Mississippi lesbian student, asked officials at Itawamba County Agricultural High School in Fulton if she could attend her class prom with her girlfriend and wear a tuxedo. The response of the school was to cancel the entire prom to avoid her attending as a lesbian.
The cancellation had the effect (perhaps intended) to make McMillen the target of blame for destroying the long planned prom. What is striking is that these are now adults who will be shortly released into a world filled with both homosexuals and heterosexuals. Yet, the school opted to cancel a prom to avoid these adults seeing a gay couple on a date.
I have to assume that the officials knew that by canceling the event, blame would be directed at the lesbian student and the ACLU. I can only hope that the students are not so gullible or ignorant.
The school now faces a well-deserved lawsuit, here.
