    The only thing insulting is bigoted overreactions such as canceling an entire prom.

    The two are parallel and the fact you don't like it is of little consequence.

    In this case, yeah. This is negative discrimination and there is no logical reason for it that you can put forth.

    This is not the girl's fault. The school made the choice to cancel the event, not her. They were so committed to enforcing a bigoted policy that instead of losing face to the media by kicking her out of the prom, they just canceled the whole thing. It's a sick workaround.

    If you cannot see where the responsibility lies in this case, then your denial is more dense than I thought.

    Civil disobedience is a good first step.

    Moral objection is not grounds or justification for restrictive public policies. This was ruled in a SC decision out of Kansas where they tried to levy a much greater penalty against a young man who had a relationship with an underage teenager (they were 20 and 17, I believe) than they would have for a young man having a relationship with a girl of similar age.

    Moral disapproval is not a legitimate justification for restriction of personal freedoms.

    Look up the word bigot then look in the mirror.

    It has nothing to do with like or dislike. It has to do with the fact one is proven to be genetic and the other is not.

    Then accept the consequences with taking that stance. Like making everyone else suffer for your personal preference.

    Actually, sorry, scratch my point number two.

    I DO feel sympathy for her because she DIDN'T break any rules, she actually FOLLOWED the rules by trying to go about the proper course of getting it reviewed and over turned and the gutless bigoted ****s on the school board instead choose to duck out of the issue and punish everyone else.

    But of course, its all the girls fault FOR FOLLOWING THE RULES and absolutely not the extremely over reacting school

    Dr King and his kind? His kind were against discrimination. They made quite a thing about it. You might remember. Theirs was a fight for civil rights, period.

    Someone once said, ""I am not truly free if I am taking away someone else's freedom, just as surely as I am not free when my freedom is taken from me. The oppressed and the oppressor alike are robbed of their humanity."

    That would be Nelson Mandela, who presided over the first country in the World to enshrine the civil rights of all races and sexual orientations in in its constitution.

    Part of civil disobedience is fighting the consequences as well.
