    Mississippi School Cancels Prom

    JACKSON, Miss. – 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.

    Yeah, I just read about that. I found it rather funny.

    Only in Mississippi. Ah well, you know what they say - when in Rome...

    I don't see what the problem is. They didn't show her girlfriend, but they showed her and she's pretty good-looking. I'll lay even money that most of the boys there wouldn't have been offended. The girls there may get pissed when they notice their boyfriends and prom dates staring at two hot chicks making out. Happened to me.

    I don't agree with punishing a whole class for the actions of a few.

    Hmm? Let's think about this. So which one did they really think would be worse for the students, having a couple there that both were female or not having a prom at all? Some people are so ridiculously stupid.

    "We'll show you! We'll just CANCEL THE PROM!"

    I think it's time for some Footloose. Does anyone in town have a conveniently empty feed warehouse?

    I agree, it's ridiculous.

    A few years ago, in my school district, two gay guys went to the high school prom and with nary a peep from anyone. I only learned about it from some kids who went and it was just an incidental mention, not a big deal. "__________ was at the prom with his boy friend. They looked nice."

    Nothing more deviant than hate.
