    It's supported by as much evidence as your claim that being gay is a choice.

    Say she wasn't gay, did not have a date for prom, and wanted to go with another girl so that both girls could attend a significant high school event.

    Would you still have the same objections?

    Not only is she being discriminated against because she's gay, she's being treated with gender bias. There is no good reason that a girl can't wear a tux to prom as long as the clothing is suitable and doesn't violate normal on-campus clothing restrictions.

    Yo, you know we don't need to be losing no more white girls to them blacks. Lets cancel prom if they try to have an interracial

    And I mean, there's not a lot of hot gamer chicks out there and I'll be damned if all the jocks get them. Lets cancel prom if a Jock tries to come with a Geeky Chick, that would make me sad and apparently making someone sad is worth while enough to cancel an entire prom. Why'd they have to shove their Class-crossing relationship in my face

    Want to have sex with an underage person? Nope, should not be legal based on the notion that minors are not wholey responsible for themselves so legally can't make the decision.
    Don't children make decisions on friends, what to wear, what to eat? Who are you to decide arbitrarily that they cannot think for themselves?

    This is where the argument falls apart because there is always a sexual practice you will want to ban based on morality which is why using the argument you are making is so hypocritical.

    She didn't defy any rules. SHE FOLLOWED THE RULES. She petitioned the school to change the rules, which in and of itself IS FOLLOWING THE RULES.
    Sorry. She involved the ACLU to force the school to change the rules. That isn't following the rules, thats trying to circumvent them.

    So, no rules should ever be changed? No girls and boys wearing shorts or jeans to school? Same rules as we had back in 1910?

    FAIL. Children cannot consent under the law.

    Good she should. Prom isn't about some political stance. It is about you as a class having fun together. If that means there are a few lesbian and gay couples then who cares?

    What this thread needs is an irrational appeal to emotion that has nothing to do with the actual topic.

    Oh look, here we go, right there. Thanks for supplying that.

    Wrong. Choice is the only conclusion when there is a lack of evidence to support a genetic claim.

    Say she wasn't gay, did not have a date for prom, and wanted to go with another girl so that both girls could attend a significant high school event.

    Would you still have the same objections?
    Did the rules spell that out?

    Not only is she being discriminated against because she's gay, she's being treated with gender bias. There is no good reason that a girl can't wear a tux to prom as long as the clothing is suitable and doesn't violate normal on-campus clothing restrictions.
    Oh now thats good. A MUCH better argument. The tux argument is hard to defend.

    When you can't debate the point, make fun of it and run away. That ensures you are always right.
