Excellent!

A federal judge has ordered Mississippi's Itawamba County School District to pay the $81,000 in legal fees and expenses that Constance McMillen incurred after having to bring them to court for banning her from her high school's prom - all because she wanted to bring her girlfriend as a date!

As they should! We're so thrilled that justice has been served!

Discrimination and bigotry have no place in this country, and ESPECIALLY not in schools!

Congratulations, bb!

A well-deserved victory!

EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL.

    WOO HOOO!!!! I AM SOOO EXCITED FOR HER!!!



  2. 2

    I'm glad she got reimbursed, this should have never happened and she was robbed of important moments in a teenagers life.
    I wouldn't call her a hero though, I would call her a victim. This line is getting too blurred.



  3. 3

    Funny how I lived in a very rural, backward area that allowed girls to go with girls in the late 80's. I guess the south doesn't get it.

    This is getting really old Perez! Can you start a seperate blog for all the sniveling and get back to what i'm here for, celebrity gossip!!!!

    CBenji - Why do people generalize whole regions like that? Have you been to every town in the south? Have you met every southern person?



  6. 6

    This is becoming the homo political agenda web site. I think I'll quit clicking on it.



  7. 7

    SO NOT A HERO!!! There is still mainstream Americans who do not go for this sort of thing. Sexuality is NOT a protected class. There is no constitutional/federal right here. So by law, she has not been constitutionally violated. I hope the district appeals.



  8. 8

    What a cry baby. Hate her!



  9. 9

    Good! These ignorant back-woods trash heaps need to pay for their bigotry. The joke is on them because the gays are never going away. We are here to stay you stupid motherfuckers. I'm done playing nice.



  10. 10

    You do know there are straights and celebrities on this planet, right?



  11. 11

    Sexuality should be protected, and it is wrong that it is not… However…
    She is not a hero. If you pull someone out of a burning car you are a hero. If you pull yourself out of a burning car you saved yourself. It's not like she was campaigning for other people's rights before this event. It is crazy to call her a hero when it took an event that happened to her for her to start fighting.



  12. 12

    It's too bad she won't receive any help in hell.



  13. 13

    Re: Mad Dog – yeah a true cry baby.. idiot.. we live in equal world.



  14. 14

    Dont agree here , the principal or whoever denied her should pay , why the whole school district?



  15. 15

    What a waste of tax dollars.

    That school district is dumb, and so is this chick.



  16. 16

    How is that great. The school district will now have the taxes raised to pay this bitch off or they will have to cut back on others items for the school.

    Just because of "I wanna" behavior the rest of the county has to pay for it.



  17. 17

    Re: Heather3

    Your a dumbass. the school now has less money for other students.



  18. 18

    Re: sparkle.jello

    Who really pays the price you moron.

    Where do you think the school is going to get the money to pay her!!

    tax money dumbass. Would you like to have your taxes raised to pay her off?? I didn't think so….so shut up



  19. 19

    Re: Chinwe Okorie Ŧ

    not according to the bible you moron!



  20. 20

    yaaaay! :) i'm very happy for her.



  21. 21

    Re: Alphalaw – Just because it isn't the "law," doesn't make it wrong or right. Prejudice against Blacks WASN'T illegal, but that didn't make that right, either. In 20 years your views will seem as dinosaur as making Blacks sit at the back of the bus.



  22. 22

    Re: Chinwe Okorie Ŧ – we really don't live in an equal world. that's crazy you can even say that. i'd like some facts to back that claim up.



  23. 23

    Re: Godblessusall – Hell?? Don't you mean Oz or Smurfland or any other imaginary place? Seek psychiatric help. You are delusional. Next you'll believe in unicorns.



  24. 24

    Re: Chinwe Okorie Ŧ – Go eat a banana bitch.



  25. 25

    I am done with this site. This site has become a gay rights website that happens to mention some occasional celebrity gossip. I love gay people and wish them all the best, but I am sick of reading about it.



  26. 26

    where did a high school kid get $81,000 to begin with?



  27. 27

    look i am as for constance and her struggle as the next person, but how can you possibly be celebrating that a school district has to pay her legal bills? don't you know there is an education crisis? how can you justify the impact that this decision will have on numerous children and their future. again. i am completely in support of constance and i think the school board was wrong - the fact that she had to take her battle to court is wrong - but you have to recognize the awful side of this ruling as well. as much as it helps constance's cause, and the gay-rights movement in general, is it worth the cost of educating america's youth? the true tragedy here stems from uneducated people making bad decisions and it seems to me like taking money from a school district is ultimately going to perpetuate the problem more than fix it.



  28. 28

    Here we go again with the equality for all. You don't mean *all* all, you mean equality for gay men and lesbians you decide you like. "All" would mean persons with physical and mental differences, "all" would obese or very thin people, "all" would mean all persons whose skin may be a different color than the majority of persons living or working in an area or a place. I think you get my drift, but to you "all" simply means gays. In Perez's world that translates to "equality to me and mine, and screw the rest of you."

    Re: Alphalaw – BIGOT PIG

    Re: Godblessusall – you know there is no god right .. are you thta fucking stupid to believe in some floating man in the sky .. please .. lol its embarrassing to think that you do lol and lets just say there is a god …if god wanted peace and "created everyone equal" then why did he actually make people who are different?….why wouldn't he just make people who ALL look, smell, eat, fart, shit, puke, fuck, dress, think, and do their laundry the same ? lol kinda funny if you think about it isn't it? OH WAIT A SECOND i know what you will say .. it was the DEVIL, you know the evil imaginary red man that is burning in the centre of the earth BWAHHHHH ROFL



  31. 31

    Re: durka dur – thats her legal fees dumbass … she doesn't pay them upfront .. ughhhh i hate stupid people



  32. 32

    Re: thinkaboutitperez – bigoted people have to learn somehow….



  33. 33

    Re: Trailer Trash says … – im ALL FOR EQUAL RIGHTS AND GAY RIGHT ….BUT i sadly have to agree with you where perez is concerned because if he did mean ALL he wouldn't make fun of people on a website .. god hes such a fucking hypocrite .. "i want equality for all but holy fuck jennifer lopez's ass is huge" who the fuck cares who has a big ass of not .. like really.. imagine how fucking boring this world would be if EVERYONE looked and acted the EXACT same .. it would be Aldous Huxleys book "A Brave New World" ughhh.. i also love how former fat people make fun of fat people lol .. like really ? lol



  34. 34

    Yay! Go Constance!



  35. 35

    Bravo Constance!
    It is nice to see justice still exists once in awhile in America.



  36. 36

    Congratulations. Stay tuned for the press release that the school district will now be dropping their gymnastics or some other activity to to a lack of funds.



  37. 37

    I agree it's such a shame that money had to be taken from a school. But the girl had every right to take them to court. People need to start realising that discrimination of any kind will not be tolerated. And the first place that message needs to be enforced is in our schools so our future generations will be brought up on the principal that ALL are created equal!



  38. 38

    GO CONSTANCE!!

    I'm sad that this girl had to endure all that pain in order to shed light over the problem, I hope she stays brave and knows that people all over the world knows about it and that we're backing her up. Equal rights for all is a must!



  39. 39

    Re: sparkle.jello – If your argument were true, then everyone who jumps in and helps, putting themselves at risk when there's a fire, accident or a fight -would also not be heroes, since something had to happen in order for them to be able to act? Come on, not taking all that crap that this girl has taken has to count for something? Also, it's never too late to become a hero, why won't you be one, all it takes is guts, or would you rather sit behind your computer and b*tch at people who actually DO something? Your choice.



  40. 40

    TOTAL waste of everyone's time and money!! I wish she'd just shut up. And Perez, I thought this was a celebrity gossip website???!!



  41. 41

    Re: URwhatUeat – yeah please don't give me bible stuff but then you call me a moron.. what a great Christian you are. Didn't people use the bible to prove why slavery was right? The Bible is not something i would use for answers, common sense is treat people the way you want to be treated.

    Gays, straight, different creed, gender.. we all have the same organ, bleed the same way, take a shit the same way, nothing is different.



  42. 42

    Re: erikasjammin – i really meant to say we should live in equal world. Sorry i see the difference when not using one word. But honestly people shouldn't be this evil towards each other..



  43. 43

    Re: URwhatUeat – lmao! i LOVE your comments

    Their little manipulated fake grad was so clever that it cost them 81 Grand.
    Constance stuck up for her rights, while they acted like the meanies in the Carrie movie.
