    Re: Lesbian teen back at Miss. school after prom flap

    She knew the school would never allow such a thing. She knew she was doing this as a protest to gain attention.
    What planet do you live on where anyone would have expected such an overreaction? She clearly expected that once the school realized that the weren't going to get away with it that they would cave and let her bring her date.

    You seriously believe that she said to herself "Gee, if I ask to take my girlfriend to the prom, then the board will be forced to cancel prom for the WHOLE SCHOOL! Then all the attention will be on me! Muahahahaha!"

    Seriously? Who in the world could have predicted that they would cancel the entire prom because one student wanted to take another to prom?

    She could have went by herself, and not make a mockery of this tradition. But the Gay anti society crowd love to make mockeries out of every institution we have.
    Or she could have petitioned to have the rules changed so that she could bring her significant other. That actually seems like a pretty logical course of action to me. I suppose she could have clandestinely tried to circumvent the rules by showing up "alone" with another girl who was also showing up "alone" on her arm, but is that really the preferred course of action?

    The school protected an important custom, and denied the Radicals even more power.
    Protected? They canceled it. Is that how you protect things? By destroying them? I really hope you aren't in the US military. I don't want to be protected that way.

    I would expect such a reaction from a responsible Board of Ed. And no need to get aggravated here, calm down.

    You seriously believe that she said to herself "Gee, if I ask to take my girlfriend to the prom, then the board will be forced to cancel prom for the WHOLE SCHOOL! Then all the attention will be on me! Muahahahaha!"
    Pretty much that would be my position, especially given how quickly the special interests got on board. What a coincedence.

    Seriously? Who in the world could have predicted that they would cancel the entire prom because one student wanted to take another to prom?
    Another? Dont make your position as fact. She wanted to cross dress, and take same sex date to a HS prom. Honestly just because you accept that as normal ,doesnt make everyone accept it as normal.

    That would have been the responsible thing to do.

    Yes better to cancel it, then destroy it for good. Better to retreat and lose a battalion then stay and get a whole army whiped out.

    How is ruining prom for everyone in the school a responsible response to a student wanting to take her girlfriend? It doesn't seem a touch overboard to you? Why not either tell her no, that she still couldn't bring her date, or better yet, apologize for having been douchebags and let the girl have her prom?

    Pretty much that would be my position, especially given how quickly the special interests got on board. What a coincedence.[sic]
    I like that you had the embarrassed smiley after that. If that were my position, I would be embarrassed too. There is no way that she could ever have even predicted that they would cancel prom, much less want them to.

    Another? Dont make your position as fact. She wanted to cross dress, and take same sex date to a HS prom. Honestly just because you accept that as normal ,doesnt make everyone accept it as normal.
    So if any students asks to do anything that doesn't meet your criteria for "normal" then the appropriate response is to cancel the entire prom?

    That would have been the responsible thing to do.
    Ok, so in your world, breaking or circumventing a law you disagree with is more responsible then petitioning your representatives to have the law changed? Seriously?

    Yes better to cancel it, then destroy it for good. Better to retreat and lose a battalion then stay and get a whole army whiped out.
    Yeah, we'd better nuke the US to deny the terrorists the satisfaction of destroying it themselves too.

    How in the world would letting a couple of lesbians dance together ruin the prom for anyone? I mean, it wouldn't even be that obvious once she was wearing a tux, she would just seem like a particularly effeminate dude, dancing with "his" date. Why does anyone even care?

    Your comment was from a legal standpoint. Legally, the least problematic course of action would have been to allow the prom to continue.


    Like I said, most people will think the decision to call of the prom is stupid. That doesn't change the fact that the school isn't "censoring free expression" by deciding not to sponsor a prom night.
    You're missing the point. What was the REASON they canceled the event? To censor free speech and show bias towards gays. It is irrelevant as to what they claim. This is what they did.


    If you are canceling an event for everyone, you aren't discriminating. They may have carried out that action due to bias against a gay student, but it's not illegal to be biased.
    It may not be illegal to be biased... in some cases, but, again, the REASON they canceled the event was because of bias and discrimination.

    The problem is that brining the same sex date is against their rules. If they denied her outright they would face a well funded court challenge one that even if they won would have cost them severly and cost the student. The board is already under tight economic pressures from the recession. If it was only this one girl who didnt understand what reaction this would create, then there would be no special interest ready with lawyers and reporters.


    I like that you had the embarrassed smiley after that. If that were my position, I would be embarrassed too. There is no way that she could ever have even predicted that they would cancel prom, much less want them to.
    I am embarrased that you can be so naive.

    Not my normal, but cultural norms.


    Ok, so in your world, breaking or circumventing a law you disagree with is more responsible then petitioning your representatives to have the law changed? Seriously?
    That doesnt make any sense, how is this my position? Perhaps I misunderstood you.

    Yeah, we'd better nuke the US to deny the terrorists the satisfaction of destroying it themselves too.
    strawman.

    Alot of people care, because it is a purposeful act against society and our culture.

    How does a girl at this age become indoctrinated into this choice? All this kind of story does is make easier for the next young person to talked into this choice.
    It's good to know that you just demonstrated your complete lack of knowledge on sexual orientation. Congrats.

    As much as homosexuals feel downtrodden and oppressed...do you ever think that maybe just maybe the majority of people are TIRED of all of this and tired of having all the rabid f###ing nutbags and their own little bigoted and biased prejudices aimed at us because we happen to disagree? See...when TOLERENCE isnt a two way street...an awful lot of us get tired of the whole thing and reach a point where we just say...fine...f### you...we arent going to change and now you have created an enemy where before you didnt HAVE one...
    Hold a mirror up to this comment and you will then know how the other side feels about how your side behaves.

    Her actions forced the school to either say no to her and face a lawsuit from well funded special interests, or allow her to come to the prom by which destroying the traditions and culture of the event, or three cancel it. I think the third option was the only practical one, and she deserves the scorn of the other students.
