    WRONG. It's been tried in court, and the schools that have tried to ban gay students from prom have lost, EVERY SINGLE TIME.

    Nice try.

    Suppose you got in a car accident in Mississippi, and your wife was terminally injured and placed on life support, and you weren't even allowed to see her in the ICU, let alone participate in end of life choices.

    When you have children together, it becomes even more complicated than that.
    Quite an extreme example.

    So they CAN travel anywhere they choose and their marriage only counts to them as long as someone else besides them acknowledges it...geez...


    I take this whomever to be my wedded whomever as long as I can get money and benefits from other people for it....ok


    This seems to be about cash more than anything.
    Thank you

    All that can be covered by a written agreement or a will.........

    .....if....

    Is it actually, though?

    Is the school in violation of some federal mandate if it imposes a formal dress code on a formal occasion?

    A public school could force it's students to wear a uniform. So much less than a uniform is a dress code for an optional event.

    You are right. They will make them have a prom. A good time will be had by all.

    Pretty much the exact same outcome that would have happened if she had done what she wanted to begin with and not tried to rub it in their faces.

    Its a dress code that does not affect education in this case so I am pretty sure the school will lose as they did the last few times.
    Thank you

    Title 9 is about gender equity. NOT about dress codes. Dress codes in the normal school setting have been challenged in court and upheld. HOWEVER, it would have to be shown that the tuxedo was going to significantly disrupt a school function. I don't think a tuxedo would be considered disruptive of the learning environment in the same way that, for example, wearing gang attire does. I mean, 50% of the people there will be wearing tuxes.

    The school doesn't have a legal leg to stand on, and they will lose this one.

    It bans all sex discrimination, not just in sports.

    Assuming this went to court BEFORE the prom, sure.
