Mississippi Prom Cancelled Due to Stupidity

13 03 2010

Normally I don’t talk about non-kink things, but I try to be sex positive. I support people of different sexual orientations and try to help out when I can. Others, well not so much. In Mississippi, a local school board was faced with a lawsuit over a lesbian and her date being prohibited from attending the prom. The right thing to do is to let them attend. The wrong thing is to cancel the prom. But stupid is as stupid does, as the wise man said. The USAToday has this about the story:

A Mississippi county school board announced Wednesday it would cancel its upcoming prom after a gay student petitioned to bring a same-sex date to the event.”Due to the distractions to the educational process caused by recent events, the Itawamba County School District has decided to not host a prom at Itawamba Agricultural High School this year,” school board members said in a statement.

Constance McMillen, an 18-year-old senior at Itawamba, recently challenged a school policy prohibiting her from bringing her girlfriend as her date to the April 2 prom. McMillen, who is a lesbian, and the Mississippi chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union urged school officials to reverse the policy both on McMillen’s choice of date and attire. She also wanted to wear a tuxedo to the dance.

Let’s send some support to her. God bless her and the tribulation she has been through.
