That’s McMillen 2 – Itawamba Ag HS 0

JISHOU, HUNAN — The lesbian teenager denied a decent high school prom has won her discrimination case against Itawamba Agricultural High School in Mississippi. The school agreed to revise its prom policy to be non-discriminatory and to pay Constance McMillen $35,000 in damages and her legal fees. McMillen last fall had asked her school if she could come to her prom wearing a tuxedo and bring her girl friend as her date. The school said no. So, she and her parents approached the American Civil Liberties Union, which agreed to represent her in a civil action against the school. So, the school canceled prom altogether. A judge subsequently required the school to hold a prom open to everyone, including McMillen and her date. Then, the school sponsored a fake prom, while a “secret” prom was held elsewhere for the rest of McMillen’s graduating class. McMillen was harassed so much at school that she transferred to a school in Jackson just to graduate with some dignity. Itawamba becomes the first high school in Mississippi to have a policy barring discrimination or harassment on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. Talk about irony.

Stupid (Mississippi) high schools, part XXXV

JISHOU, HUNAN — Remember Constance McMillen, the Mississippi girl who got cheated out of her prom because she was — gasp! — a lesbian? To add insult to injury, the nutjobs from Westboro Baptist Church intend to picket her graduation May 22. Elsewhere in the great state of Mississippi, another high school, fearful that the power of Teh Gay would strike its students blind, expunged a tuxedo-clad lesbian from her yearbook. No photo and no name. Mississippi makes Kentucky look progressive by comparison. Westboro, which I prefer to call Fred Phelps’ Family’s Home Hater Cult, hates gays and lesbians, Catholics, Jews, and probably a lot of other people. Moreover, church members believe that God Himself hates gays and lesbians, Catholics, Jews (who knew?), and probably a lot of other people. Westboro has picketed high schools with gay-lesbian associations, funerals of gay or lesbian soldiers killed in combat, shuls, Catholic churches, and tornado victims, to name just a few of their abominable activities. Here’s what they say about McMillen (left). I am quoting from their website, OK? Don’t dump on me. WBC will picket the graduation of Itawamba Agricultural High School to remind the parents, teachers and students of this nation ...
