Dear Mississippi, THIS SUCKS!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay GayPolitikLGBT

This is absolutely RIDICULOUS!!

The Itawamba County school district in northern Mississippi has CANCELLED their high school's prom because a lesbian student wanted to bring her girlfriend to the dance!!


The Itawamba County Agricultural High School in Fulton, Mississippi, sent out a criteria for students in February regarding the dance, and one of the requirements was that each student MUST bring a date of the opposite sex.

Obviously, that didn't fly for student Constance McMillen, whose girlfriend also attends the school, and when the American Civil Liberties Union of Mississippi got wind of the fuckery and told the district they had to change the policy, the school board issued a statement cancelling the prom for EVERYONE, "due to the distractions to the educational process caused by recent events."

Absolutely disgusting!!

That poor girl!!

Kristy Bennett, the legal director for the ACLU, says:

"But that doesn't take away their legal obligations to treat all the students fairly. On Constance's behalf, this is unfair to her. All she's trying to do is assert her rights."

EXACTLY. It's a violation of her RIGHTS.

So, so sad.

And IF Constance is reading, we know this doesn't make it any better, but prom is overrated!!

ESPECIALLY if it were going to be in a place that would try and impede on your happiness!!

Hang in there, and keep your chin up girl!! There are a lot of people out there fighting on your side!!

    im seriously starting to believe u get all most of your news from yahoos homepage

  2. 2

    This is a shit load of fuck.
    What year is this again? Seriously WTF

  3. 3

    hey, she stuck to her guns, and so did the school

    the kids need to just organize their own dance

    No one has the "right" to go to a dance

  4. 4

    it's "WHOSE", you dimwit, not "who's".

  5. 5

    I'm bi & have a gf… but i mean come on P, "poor girl" ? How about "poor everyone" that misses prom.

  6. 6

    So sad. I hope someone is fired over this.

  7. 7

    I'm not gay but I can attest that yes, the prom is very overrated.

    Constance, if you are reading this post, do yourself a favor…..have a wonderful dinner with your partner that night (get very dressed up if you feel like it) and do what you feel like doing. Get the hell out of Mississippi and go somewhere where you will be accepted. I do believe in equal rights for all, but you shouldn't have to stay hidden somewhere just because the idiots around you don't agree with your lifestyle.

  8. 8

    It's stupid how they cancelled the prom and ruined it for everyone else. They should have just banned those two lesbians.

  9. 9

    This is so disgusting. I just hope her classmates won't blame her or retaliate and hurt her. People need to WAKE UP!

  10. 10

    who cares where he gets his news from? that's not even important right now. this article, although i'm straight, really disgusts me. people are terrible and they will get what they deserve eventually.

  11. 11

    … prom is not overrated. :(

  12. 12

    The same thing happened in 2002 where I am from.
    (Oshawa, Ontario) It was the Marc Hall case.
    Filed a Law-Suit and ended up being allowed to bring his date.

  13. 13

    Who cares where his news comes from! and Yahoo is usually headline around the world news. The story is what is devestating and no teenager should have to go through, straight or gay. I think its awesome that Perez is bringing attention to such important issues.

  14. 14

    So if a 16 year old girl wanted to take a 45 year old man to prom- that'd be cool too right? Tolerance. Open minded-ness. Everyone deserves happiness…

  15. 15

    This happened in Canada almost 10 years ago, there was a lawsuit I believe and they even made a tv movie.

  16. 16


  17. 17

    i feel like this is the 50s again! where people are fighting for whats right. until all the old people die and parents dont raise their children to believe things, maybe things could progress!

    that doesnt even sound like a true story its that unbelievable.

  19. 19

    This is the state where a HUGE percentage voted for David Duke (The Klansman) in the presidential election…why would this be a surprise?

  20. 20

    its taking a lot of restraint for me to not call that school and yell at them- disgusted

  21. 21

    I agree, this is total BS! I live in Mississippi! I have to live around these redneck, backwoods narrow-minded idiots! Can't wait to get out of here!

  22. 22

    She should have held an alternate Prom and invited those who wanted to attend. I am gay and even I know that it is kind of unfair to throw it in other kids faces.. I feel for her and commend her for standing her ground, but, hey, what are you going to do.. For the sake of the other kids, she should back down and let them have their prom..

  23. 23

    Prom cancelled for EVERYONE? that's ridiculous. When they give out rules, follow them.

  24. 24

    Re: VanessaXDD – I agree:)

  25. 25

    I've been to a few proms, and I've missed a few proms. Proms are cool because you get to dress in some nice finery and look good. The only people who say proms are overrated are the ones who don't go. Right Perez and Barbie?
    Aside from that, that's pretty stupid all the way around from not allowing a student to be herself, to punishing a whole student body because your bible belt sensibilities were shaken. I think one of the terms for that is "cutting off your nose to spite your face." Stupid.

  26. Visa says – reply to this


    The school is 100% correct on this. This venue was being turned into a circus over this, so instead of letting all the drive by media turn this into a political statement, just shut it down and end it. Plus the girl was fat.

  27. 27

    Hey Constance: What does not break you makes you stronger!!! :-)

  28. 28

    that's ridiculous, way to treat them like they aren't even people and like they don't have the rights straight people have… terrible. hope someone gets in deep shit…

  29. 29

    Back in the day…groups of kids used to go to prom together. Girls with girls, usually, who couldn't get a date. It seems political that they would make it a rule that you must be boy-girl. That's like saying that people who are too big a loser to get a date shouldn't get to go to prom either.

    What a-holes! Let kids have their fun.

    The kids could always have their own prom. A lot of kids from Christian schools do that…why not these kids?

  30. 30

    It's "whose girlfriend," dumb shit. What illiterate fuck writes this shit? If you tried to get a legitimate job anywhere, your CV would be laughed straight into the wastebasket.

  31. 31

    This sucks. :( Horrible Horrible

  32. 32

    2010 and still morons like that… amazing!

  33. 33

    Thats some bull! You know I would have still took her. I would not have even said anything about it. They have no right to tell you who you can have as a date.

  34. 34

    I think after being peresecuted for 4 years and treated differently because people can tell you're gay, you just want to show who you really are. Because you've already paid the price for it, and been labeled, and you don't feel its that bad. Ugh, high school is rough for gay people I've been out almost 10 years and I'm still working on easing the memories. Conservatives don't believe gays should be tolerated at all in high schools, the problem is you don't even have to admit it before they start persecuting you.

  35. 35

    Re: watevafamewhore – lol, i had the same thought. Whoever's writing/managing this blog these days sucks ASS. It used to be at least a little bit witty. Now it's like it's being written by some holier than thou godbot who's decided that the part of the bible that says to off the gays can be ignored.

  36. 36

    Unbelievable! This is the type of thing that makes our country look like a bunch of backwood rednecks that haven't got anything better to do than to sit around and think of the next group we want to discriminate against. I pray she files a lawsuit.

  37. 37

    Re: Visa – no, it wasn't being turned into a circus over this. The school board made a fuss about it. Read the article, she asked them if it would be ok… next she knows there's a memo with all sorts of rules. It's ridiculous. It's a PUBLIC school. They're worried about distractions??? WTF?? have you been to a high school during spirit week before homecoming? it's a freaking circus! let's ban it so that kids won't be distracted.

  38. 38

    I feel awful for this girl because now all those catty bitches she goes to high school with are going to try and murder her ass for getting prom canceled for everyone. Poor kid.

  39. 39

    Okay, I'm an extremely conservative Christian who believes that homosexuality is in fact wrong (and in fact a psychological disorder) yet EVEN I AGREE that this is ridiculous. They canceled the prom for everyone, just so that they wouldn't be exposed to the *gasp* sight of a lesbian couple dancing together?! Good grief. All that they are hoping to accomplish is to turn the students (and indeed the town itself) against the lesbian. The school is, in essence, promoting bullying and hatred against the girls.

  40. 40

    Prom is WAAY overrated, but it is a chance for everyone to get together and celebrate the last year of their four years together. If the student's want a prom, then they should all rally together and set up a party of their own. Screw the school, I'm sure the party they throw for themselves would be much crazier and fun. But who knows if that will ever happen. Screw those right wing idiots and their killjoy tactics.

  41. 41

    ridiculous. how can they say who people can go to prom with? What about the people who don't get dates and just go with their friends, is that banned too? At my prom there were many gay couples and no one had a problem with it. I can't believe its 2010 and this shit is still happening.

  42. 42

    This is sad. Prom may be over rated but still its part of growing up its part of high school. Its something to look forward to. And to ban one type of group is wrong. This is 2010! And I doubt most of the students going would even care if a lesbian couple showed up together. The senior class should stick behind their fellow classmates, make up their own prom and just party up. Shame on the school district to be so racist. Yes it is racist. If this delt with 2 kids of different races like black and white then I am sure the school district wouldnt have cancelled the prom. This is sad and I hope that this girl isnt given problems from the rest of her class mates. But good for this girl for sticking to her guns and standing up for herself and her rights!

    Re: Visa – Plus the girl was fat. I love it, you almost made an eloquent point and you totally blew it out the window! You all do this, almost a decent point, but there were too many f words or h words and it just seems like hate speech. I love it, way to go. Persecution of gay people in high school leads to people like me :-P

  45. 45


  46. 46

    when I went to high school, you needed a date, NOW, my daughter is going to the same high school, and you can go without a date, which is what she is doing. she and her friends have a few tables, some have dates, some don't, some guys are going alone, some girls are going alone. but, there is not the pressure of having a date and sitting with a group you do not know. I think it is better that way. which is what that school should do. How backwards is that school? alot of schools have gay clubs, something that would have never happened when I went to school. NO ONE came out when I was in high school, they would have had the crap beat out of them.

  47. 47

    Re: missourimedic
    I'm glad you agree its wrong but you made an error in your post RELIGION IS A MENTAL ILLNESS not homosexuality.

    Call the school and post the number Ill call from Australia too!

  48. 48

    Good call Mississippi. Now nobody has fun because someone makes a choice against the rules and then gets the ACLU involved. The ACLU kills more good programs now than anyone I've ever seen.

  49. buck says – reply to this


    Constance and her girlfriend should have done what any normal couple would have done….dress up a couple pillows as boys and go on a double date.

  50. 50

    As a resident of the state of Mississippi, I am not surprised, but I am saddened. Thank you Itawamba County for proving to the country just how backwards and behind we really are. Ugh.

  51. 51

    That's the prevailing attitude here in the midwest and in our southern neighboring states. Homosexuality is just a behavior that will not, if ever, be tolerated. I'm not saying it's right or wrong; personally, I don't think God put me here to judge anyone else. But this story did not shock me one bit. Gays here in Topeka have to move, hide, or act straight, even to the point of getting married to appear straight. We have laws, I mean recent laws, on the books that outlaw homosexuality. Heck, the laws here even encourage discrimination against gays. I feel bad for the girl and for her classmates, I really do. But all I can say is that she should have taken into consideration where she lived and what kind of folks govern her school before she decided to ask her girlfriend to the prom.

  52. 52

    Prom can seem overrated to many, but it doesnt seem overrated until you are well beyond your highschool years; like many things we look back on. So im sure it is really important to her but, he was just saying that to make her feel better. the point is, prom is a highschool activity for all students no matter of gender or sexuality. It is supposed to be a celebration for highschoolers. I really dont understand the distraction part either, because in reality, all people care about on prom is themselves and what they are doing. Everyone should just be left alone to have a great time and enjoy themselves the way they want to, with whom they want to. The only way this was made a media spectical was because they chose to cancel it compeltely. its the schools ignorance and cold heart that caused this to get into the media.

  53. 53

    Yea, fuck prom.. I didn't go to my proms (junior and senior) and I'm not sad about it. I'm glad I didn't waste $300 on one night for one ridiculous looking dress.

  54. 54

    Don't judge on this information alone! You have to look and see who this person is. It is all for the money with this case. This started when a boy wanted to dress as a girl and he was still in hs and was creating a huge scene. Students cannot work with this type of behavior that was being exhibited. This plan to get the prom to allow same sex was only created for this person as well as for getting money from suing the school

  55. 55

    It sucks because YOU people like to SUCK each other, and normal people do not do that.

  56. 56

    Shat's next? Girls can't dance with other girls at the dance? Girls have been going to dances and dancing with each other since the beginning time, regardless of whether they are lesbians.

  57. 57

    Re: buck
    That was pretty funny :) Even you think this is stupid right ?

  58. 58

    It's Mississippi,rednecks and bible thumpers! This is just an example of pure ignorance. There is a lot of bigotry and homophobia everywhere but the south is by far the worst part of the country for this.
    I give these girls a lot of credit for their fight to be treated equally. What I wonder is how the other students feel about this? To cancel their prom is awful.
    And to think that it's so-called adults that came up with this idiotic rule,is scary.

  59. 59

    Since when is it a civil right to have a dance, prom, or other function. The girls just could have shown up together and not made a big deal about it, but in usual Gay Rights fashon, she wants to shove her lifestyle in others faces and force them to accept things that they may not be morally comfortable with yet. "We're Here, Were Queer… Get use to it". Why is it a right to be Gay? The middle easterners would kill you for that, but nooo, we can not criticize them, so let's go after Mississippians who cancel a dance because the publicity and media attention overshadowed the dance.

  60. 60

    Back in the '80's when I went to prom, we had more than one girl who dressed in a tux-and they weren't lesbians. We also had plenty of people who came as groups without dates. However, I do think the school was right for canceling the prom, but not for the reasons they gave. They should have canceled it because of the ACLU. Those people never do anything good, they just fuck it up for everybody else. The school is looking for someone to step up and volunteer to hold a private dance, Perez, why don't you donate some money so they can? Morgan Freeman did it (there's a documentary about it), and so can you!!!

  61. 61

    Re: buck – LOL! Good one Buck.
    I knew you could be kinda fun if you just loosen up a bit.

  62. 62

    Gays just can't follow the rules can they? The rule says : YOU MUST BRING SOMEONE OF THE OPPOSITE GENDER. However, gays just insist on doing whatever the fuck they want rather than what they're supposed to. I'm glad they cancelled it.

  63. 63

    I think we should call every event planner in Los Angeles and start the planning of the most spectacular prom ever given. Let's see if we can get some celeb sponsors and throw a hell of a party for these girls and any of the juniors and seniors at their school who are not homophobic bigots. Oh and camera crews should be there to document the whole thing, lots of national media coverage. If there is a plan in the works sign me up. I am looking today to see if anyone is planning anything

  64. 64

    Re: VanessaXDD – OMG,feel the love! Get a grip,honey,you may just get banned for being an idiot,someday! Why should these two girls be banned from the prom? Many schools around the country are now allowing gay students to bring their bf/gf to the prom. It's people,like you,who are the ones who decided to cancel this,NOT the two girls! They were just being who they are,they were NOT trying to have this stupid shit happen.

  65. 65

    What the fuck is wrong with the USA?
    It is the twenty-first fucking century! It's supposed to be a free goddamn country, and yet shit like this still happens? LEGALLY?
    They ruin everyone else's grad year because a girl wants to take another girl as her date to the prom. That is seriously fucked up.

  66. 66

    It's Mississippi, her girlfriend was her sister.

  67. 67

    WTF do we expect from Mississippi?
    "Red" states will never learn to keep their noses out of other peoples business. What would they do have the girls arrested? Oh yeah. Probably would. I feel like a broken record on this subject.
    Fuck the world!

    * EXACTLY. It's a violation of her RIGHTS. *

    Just as it was the district's right to cancel prom because of it. I think it's awesome. Now the 2 girls (or should I say girl and female-that-wants-a-dick) can have their own prom, by themselves….at no cost to the district

  71. 71

    god doesn't exist:

  79. 79


    Regarding what you said about people who think the prom was overrated must not have attended, you couldn't be more wrong, sorry. I went to 5 proms in high school back in the 80's. The proms themselves sucked. The only fun part was getting dressed up and going out to dinner. Big deal….dance a few dances and smile for the cameras. The after party was the place to be. That's where the real fun took place.

  80. 80

    I am not proud to admit that I live in Mississippi… can't wait to finish college and move away. I am so proud of this girl! Her courage and bravery, as well as that of others, will hopefully pull Mississippi out of it's small minded, racist, bigoted ways one day I hope! Young women like her though show that not everyone from the south is ignorant and intolerant.

  81. 81

    Is there an official petition somewhere yet? I haven't found one, so I've e-mailed the superintendant, Theresa McNeese, at tmcneece@itawamba.k12.ms.us. I encourage others to do the same!!!

  82. 82

    Guys, Guys, lets all remember that comments like "well it Mississippi, what do you expect?" just make you look as stupid as the IHS school board. I am from MS and grew up 25 min from IHS, actually went to college in Fulton. Yeah, there are some OLD blood in the school system and just plain everywhere that still think that gay people don't belong here. I was raised in a Baptist church and still go ever chance I get. One thing that I have learned here in the "Bible Belt" is that God wants us to LOVE everyone, even if we don't beleive in what they do or say.
    It makes my skin crawl when I see people still calling out the South for discriminating on other people who may not be what most folks around here consider "normal".
    I have fought my whole life for things that I beleive in and to be my own person. and it is people like you who keep the oppression alive!!
    There are people against gays EVERYWHERE, NOT JUST MS!!! If the rest of America was soo much better than MS then wouldn't same sex marrige be legal by now in those "blue states"???

    Re: Greeneyedgirl407 – You are right. I made my "red state" comment based on what you said-my perspective since I've never been there. Truth is there are good people like you that live there and there are haters everywhere else too-didn't mean to offend. Sometimes I feel exasperated trying to tolerate the intolerants, you know?

  90. 90

    Are 90% of americans retards? I'm shocked that there are so many people here supporting this action. Have all the christian-fanatic old ladies started to comment on blogs?

    I'm not gay but I totally support that they should have the same rights as anyone else. People who can't stand minorities should not have a job where they get to deside anything at all.

    you are exactly right. It will be a loooong time before that ever happens. I just wanted to point out the fact that not everyone that lives here is a redneck that hates all gays.
    I own a tattoo, custom paint studio here and I know what it feels like to not "fit in". Trust me, MS has come a looong way and I beleive that if the young people would just get involved and stick to what they believe in, mabye one day we can change the narrow-mindedness in our state.

  96. 96

    Shes not gay, shes only in highschool. Like she has had a chance to figure out who she is. I love it how when a man admits hes gay, then he suddenly starts to sound like a girl and walk like a girl. He starts with the gay voice, bit only after he "decided to be gay" I love it how gay women, do not or cannot get emotionally connected to men, but go out of thier way to look like men. I had friends who said "they were gay", in highschool, but now they are not. She is probably going through her emotions and has not found herself. wheather it be gay or straight. Prom is overated anyway, she is not missing anything. Take her "partner" and go and munch on carpet

    Re: yomama123 – You're in denial. I as a gay person, have not once in my life been attracted to a woman. Not once, ever, and always attracted to men. That IS how it's worked for me. This is why we feel you're being ignorant! please get out of denial, we aren't lying. I've not seen too many real life examples of men who only start acting effeminate after they come out, but I have met men who feel they have to "act" straight, and I myself even feel that pressure at certain times, so that may be what youre referring to. They're not gonna go munch on carpet to annoy you, they really genuinely want to lol.
