    She probably would have just had a great time showing up dancing and taking pictures. By rubbing it in their faces they were forced to make a move good, bad, ugly, or just give up and go home as was the case.
    I still think their choice of action was motivated by the fact that they knew it was a pissing contest they couldn't win and so they childishly did as much damage to everyone as possible as a means to "get back" at her.

    Could be. To me the simplest answer seems best without knowing anyone personally. I vote too lazy to deal with it and too scared to make a public stand one way or the other. Recall the public crucifixion of a beauty contestant when she "spoke her mind" about a loaded question. Talk to her about freedom of speech and the true cost.
    Thank you

    Oh they did absolutely crucify that girl. But to be honest, I don't think it was very smart for someone with that many little skeletons in the closet to be taking controversial stands on the grounds of morality.

    The kids were all given a flyer stipulating rules for the prom, one of which was that your date had to be of the opposite sex. Girls and boys were also giving a different set of dress code rules to follow.

    She wasn't asking permission out of the blue, she was responding to discrimination instructions that she had been given.

    I am sure that is what she would have done had the school not explicitly told her she couldn't. Rather than act in direct defiance of the rules, she went through the proper channels to try and get the rules changed. How is that a bad thing?

    It isnt to me but some kids are upset they did not get to throw their party.

    If they had blocked her from the prom then that would have been something else entirely. I sincerely doubt the prom committee bouncers would tackle her or her date dancing at the prom.

    It was a party....


    What baffles me is why she would even ask or seek their permission. Just show up and go for it.
    Her girlfriend, who is the one she wanted to take to prom, was in a lower grade, I believe a sophomore. The rules that were put out for prom ticket purchase stipulated that guest tickets could be purchased for students grade 9 & 10, for students grade 9-12 from another high school, and college age students. However, it also said the guest could only be of the opposite sex, which means that they most likely took the information about the person she was purchasing the guest ticket for. She would not have been able to buy a ticket for her girlfriend at all, which is why she had to try to get the unfair rule changed.

    So she could have filled out the form B. Ugs Bunny and avoided all the hooplah instead of backing a bunch of old people set in their ways into a corner. Right. Its a saturday night dance. Background checks are unlikely.

    It seems like a normal school who suddenly inherited a nazi admin.
    Source?

    It was the school board who made the decisions.
