    The only ones making everyone suffer are the administrators who are so rigid in their exertion of moral authority that they stopped the whole prom for fear of a lesbian and a tux.

    So if you ASK a cop if you may jay walk because there's no cross walk near by and you have some friends standing on the corner...

    And the cop COMPLETELY over reacts and beats not just you but all your friends with a club.

    Then that's your fault and you should accept the punishment because you dared to ASK if you could circumvent a rule and the cop COMPLETELY over reacted and we should in no way focus on the over reacting cop?

    The only thing that will change my opinion is evidence that being gay is a choice and not a biological issue.
    So during the migration of peoples, where did the gays end up settling?

    Unconstitutional. I love it when you think you can throw out big words without being challenged. Please cite in the Constitution where all sexual preferences are by law required to be accepted.

    I'll wait.
    I am not interested in pouring through the Mississippi state constitution. As I quoted from the article:

    American Civil Liberties Union told officials a policy banning same-sex prom dates violated students' rights. The ACLU said the district not letting McMillen wear a tuxedo violated her free expression rights.
    If the ACLU was saying that it violated her rights, they surely had some legal ground to stand on. If the Federal/Mississippi constitutions did not provide for any such rights, the school board could have gone on with their homophobic prom. The fact that they were forced to back down is telling. They knew they were out of line, and that if it went to court they would lose.

    Until you can understand the difference between what is Constitutional and what is personal preference, stick to teaching the kindergartners finger painting. This requires a bit more thought than you are used to.
    I doubt the ACLU was applying pressure based on "personal preference." They claimed that the school was violating students rights. The school was unable to contest this, so they cancelled the prom.

    Now, if you would just show where in the article it said that Constance intended to break the rules if the school board fought the ACLU and won...

    Oh wait... you can't.

    So you accept all sexual preferences? They should all be legal?

    Good. I hope it comes out of the principal's salary.
    Actually it will come out of the taxes people pay.

    This is not the girl's fault. The school made the choice to cancel the event, not her.
    She made the choice to defy the rules the school had in place. Of course it is her fault.

    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.
    In your opinion. This is clearly her fault because she refused to conform to the society norm. I cite a 0-31 record on gay marriage.

    If you cannot see where the responsibility lies in this case, then your denial is more dense than I thought.
    No more larger than your own. All she had to do was bring a dude then enjoy the prom. But no, she had to make everyone accept her regardless of the rules.

    Its amazing you don't see that.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    We should ban people from coming to the prom if they're blonde.

    I mean, naturally during the "Migration of peoples" "Blondes" weren't a race but was a trait found in various races and therefore its entirely fine to completely and utterly discriminate for that reason.

    I take it Iran wasn't one of those countries. Ahmademontard said there's no gay people in Iran.
