What a weak effort... [Mar. 12th, 2010|11:08 am]

Mississippi school board cancels prom after lesbian requests to bring same sex date.

While there's nothing stating explicitly that this is why they cancelled the prom, you have to wonder what other 'distractions' they could be talking about. Too scared to deny the girl her female date, because they know they haven't a leg to stand on, but also too scared to deal with the inevitable complaints by small minded bigots if they let her go ahead. So instead they effectively punish everyone just so they don't have to make a choice and deal with it.

I love how they try to make it someone else's problem, by suggesting private citizens run the prom, too.

Ah but the school has been sued now. Be interesting to see who wins that.

Very glad to hear it. I can't see how they can defend the move in any way.
