Some of you may have heard of the high school that canceled its prom rather than allow a lesbian couple to attend.
But in case you haven’t been following it… the lawsuit has begun!
The lawsuit seeks a court order for the school to hold the prom. It also asks that McMillen be allowed to escort her girlfriend, who is a fellow student, and wear a tuxedo, which the school said also violated policy.
The school’s decision was a shameful example of pure spite. They didn’t have the courage of their convictions to simply tell the girl she couldn’t go (and there’s no way they would have gotten away with that legally, anyway). So instead, they cancel the prom. Cowards.
Look, I tend to think that most proms could use some canceling. But this was just an educational institution lashing out in a very nasty way at a young girl, and I hope that they get their derriere handed to them by the ACLU.
