Constance's Old School Denies Setting Up Sham Prom!

We're not buying it!

The Itawamba County School District is denying the American Civil Liberties Union's claims on Constance McMillen's behalf that they set her up to attend a "sham prom" at the country club with a few other students while the rest of the student body attended a prom at the nearby community center.

The ACLU alleged that the school district superintendent Teresa McNeece and attorney Michele Floyd ran a meeting with parent organizers to hold separate proms.

Disgusting!

While the district admitted some of the photographs were from an event that night at the Evergreen Community Center, other photos they had in their case were of students at a function in Memphis, Tennessee.

Constance has since transferred schools and will graduate on June 2.

Good for you, girlfriend!

Disgusting! Church Plans To Picket Constance's Graduation!

There are truly no words for this.

As if poor Constance McMillen hasn't been through enough with the deplorable and disgusting discrimination she's faced regarding her school prom, the Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church announced that it plans on picketing her graduation!

The press release says:

“[We] will picket the graduation of Itawamba Agricultural High School to remind the parents, teachers and students of this nation that God said 'Thou shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind, it is abomination.' This generation has been raised to believe that they can live for the devil and still go to heaven, that God has no standards and the biggest lie of all – that God loves everyone.”

It truly saddens us to think that there are people in this world who could be capable of this kind of hatred and believe that is all in the name of a higher power.

Stay strong, Constance! You've already come this far!

Awful! Constance's Classmates Create Facebook Group To Bully Her

constancejb.jpg

It's truly nauseating to see so many young kids harboring this much hatred and bigotry.

As if Constance McMillen's story isn't horrifying and shameful enough, some of the students at the Itawamba County Agricultural High School created a Facebook page called Constance, Quit Yer Cryin', where they essentially mock the poor girl by posting pictures of the prom she was excluded from and praise one another for being awful, despicable homophobes.

We sincerely hope that these teenagers will someday come to realize how truly cruel their actions were throughout this entire ordeal. How they can sleep at night, let alone be proud of themselves, is beyond us.

Constance Speaks! She And Differently-Abled Students Sent To Fake Prom!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay Gay

How absolutely heart wrenching.

We reported yesterday that Constance McMillen, the brave young woman from Mississippi who just wanted to bring her girlfriend to prom, was sent to a fake dance by parents while the rest of her class celebrated at a secret location the same night.

Constance has spoken out about the hateful display of bigotry, and we once again are humbled by her grace and perserverence!

"They had two proms and I was only invited to one of them. The one that I went to had seven people there, and everyone went to the other one I wasn’t invited to. It hurts my feelings."

Perhaps even more disgusting, however, is that the organizers not only segregated Constance, but sent two differently-abled students to the fake prom, as well!

Unbelievable. We hope that everyone responsible are all very proud of themselves, singling out and taking advantage of kids with learning disabilities. We're sure that there's a whole lot of karma coming right back at them soon.

Constance, however, is a true class act and focused on the positive so her classmates could have a nice night!

"They had the time of their lives. That's the one good thing that come out of this, [these kids] didn't have to worry about people making fun of them [at their prom]."

We commend her for making the best out of an awful situation. We can only imagine what a painful experience this whole ordeal must have been.

We know it's hard to see now, Constance, but this will only make you a stronger and better person at the end of the day.

What these people have done to not only you, but to your fellow students who have enough challenges, only reinforces the reality that they're the lowest, most miserable kind of scum there is, and we won't spend another second focusing on that kind of negativity.

Just keep that chin up and smile wide, and don't lose an ounce of that integrity! Living a happy and fulfilling life is the best kind of revenge you can get!

Disgusting! Parent Organizers Send Constance To Fake Prom

Filed under: Gay Gay GayLegal MattersSad Sad

These people should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.

Constance McMillen, the brave young woman who made national headlines when she fought her Mississippi school district over the decision to cancel prom because she wanted to bring her girlfriend as her date, lost the court battle to have her prom reinstated, but was promised a parent-sponsored event for she and her classmates.

We've learned however, that on the night of the alleged dance, the planners sent Constance, her date, and seven other students to a fake venue while the rest of the students celebrated at the real location.

We are honestly speechless.

How could anyone, especially the parents of other high school students, be capable of such cruelty to a teenage girl? And on such a unified front?

We've been told that Constance and her classmates present at the dance tried to make the best of the night, and we're not surprised.

We had the opportunity to meet Constance, as well as her wonderful father, and we can personally attest to the young woman's character. She was lovely, soft-spoken, and genuinely appreciative of all the support and interest so many had taken in her story. She just wanted her prom with the same rights as her fellow classmates, and to hear that so many thoughtless and cruel ADULTS could be capable of such bigotry breaks our heart.

We know that she'll manage to rise above all of this, but we hope Constance knows how many people stand behind her, and are grateful for her bravery and perseverance!

Stay strong, bb! There's a big world out there with lots of people who believe in you!!
