    Are you under the odd impression that the school district is suing Constance for trying to go to their prom, and that the ACLU is studiously defending her?

    Constance is the PLAINTIFF she gets NO SAY.

    There was a time when "the authority" forced people to accept blacks and integrate them into our society. I see now that you would side with racist whites so long as it serves the individual.

    The girl is not going to be able to attend the prom with her girlfriend no matter how you cut this.

    Not sure what you want me to agree to. I know they want to have drag
    not just acceptable but also natural and normal.
    As far as all the freedoms individual rights are not granted at a prom.
    They also have age discrimination. They do also discriminate against dress codes cleavage how one dances it's just not a free for all at the prom.
    It's after the prom the free-for-all and individual rights begin.

    Constence filed the suit against the school. The choice of a jury or bench trial IS HERS AND HERS ALONE.

    I have a degree in law. I know the rules. Clearly you do not.

    Interesting twist of logic. Did that hurt?

    Um, what?

    Why? Says who?>

    Some are, some aren't. The couldn't make it a white-only prom, for example. Some rights aren't, but maybe should be. So this is irrelevant.

    They also have age discrimination. They do also discriminate against dress codes cleavage how one dances it's just not a free for all at the prom.
    Yes - for reasons. What's your reason for excluding this person?

    Well then I stand corrected. We'll just have to wait and see on the damages - if you're so confident, surely you have examples of a school district being forced to pay more than a requested $1 judgment? I sure as hell wouldn't go through with the case if I stood to win $1 and stood to lose thousands in attorney's fees to the ACLU.
