    Did you blame blacks for the "drama" of the civil rights movement too?

    Then explains alot.

    So did you blame them when you read about them in history books?

    (I was only a baby back then, but I still have opinions about it).

This isn't a "he said, she said" case. The school district made the claim that there were disruptions to the learning environment because of Constance's request to bring a same-sex date to the prom. They are required to prove that, or at least prove that granting such a request would cause a disruption, and they couldn't. In fact, the school principal testified that no class disruptions occurred at all.

    When I read it in history books, I believe I was crushing over a super hot Asian chick in the front row and counting the minutes until recess

    In fact I don't think I gave a **** about the civil rights movement one way of the other until I began debating gay-marriage on this board 3-4 years ago.

    Who said the disruptions had to be class disruptions?

    The judge is going to give his decision on the case soon, but the aclu has already been denied an action to force the school to hold a prom. There's no right to have a prom.

    If she wins, the school will pay those fees. That is how the system works. Besides, based on what occurred, it is clear that any jury who hears the case will be more than happy to award her a nice fat judgement.

    It's the jury's way of telling the southern bigot school district they are wrong and they need to get with the times or get out of public service.

    Old people have always had the most difficulty with the changing world. They need to deal with it or the need to be retired. In the case of the school officials in question, they need to be fired and their pensions need to be canceled.

    There is an actionable case for discrimination and that is going to come back and bite the school officials in the ass. As will their personal attacks on the plaintiff.

    Then I guess there is no reason for you to continue posting in this thread.

    Correct though it's not normal it is not necessarily wrong. But if it isn't normal
    Let's not teach and tell people it's normal !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
