However, no one was allowed to kiss, not even heterosexual couples. So what if one of the girls wanted to wear a tux? At least she wanted to still go in formal attire. It's better than those guys that want to wear those really cheesy tux t-shirts.

    I disagree, hate is a very natural emotion.....
    It doesn't apply to this case though, but common sense does & should.....

    This is the core belief of the Liberal/Neo Progressive agenda & I disagree with that philosophy....

    For Mississippi, it would be an upward spiral.

    Lesbian teen back at Miss. school after prom flap

    Lesbian teen back at Miss. school after prom flap - Yahoo! News

    A northern Mississippi school district will not be hosting a high school prom this spring after a lesbian student sought to attend with her girlfriend and wear a tuxedo.

    The Itawamba County school district's board decided Wednesday to drop the prom because of what it called recent distractions but without specifically mentioning the girl's request, which was backed by the American Civil Liberties Union.

    The student, 18-year-old high school senior Constance McMillen, said the cancellation was retaliation for her efforts to bring her girlfriend, also a student, to the April 2 dance.

    "A bunch of kids at school are really going to hate me for this, so in a way it's really retaliation," McMillen told The Clarion-Ledger of Jackson. Calls to McMillen by The Associated Press late Wednesday went unanswered.

    School policy requires that senior prom dates be of the opposite sex. The ACLU of Mississippi had given the district until Wednesday to change that policy, arguing that banning same-sex prom dates violated McMillen's constitutional rights.

    ....

    Itawamba County is a rural area of about 23,000 people in north Mississippi near the Alabama state line. It's near Pontotoc County, Miss., where more than a decade ago school officials were sued in federal court over their practice of student-led intercom prayer and Bible classes.
    ...
    On one hand the school district is allowed to cancel such events. On the other hand, they are complete bigots for canceling a prom just so ONE student won't bring a same sex date. Seriously, anybody who thinks education should be left up to the states doesn't have a clue what 'states' do when they control education. The story is in the history books.

    So we can't trust the states to protect individual rights, but we can trust the federal government? Would you have said the same thing two years ago?
