Assholes of the Day: Itawamba County School District…

…AND its “real prom” organizers.  AND, quite frankly, its “real prom” attendees.

Remember Constance McMillen, the high school student who filed a lawsuit against Itawamba County School District after they rejected her request to bring her girlfriend to the prom?  The school then cancelled prom (because God forbid they have to deal with those yucky queers), then encouraged students/parents to host their own private prom.

Well, the private prom happened, all right.  And Constance was invited.  Thing is?  She was invited to a fake prom created all for her (and a handful of her Other classmates):

To avoid Constance McMillen bringing a female date to her prom, the teen was sent to a “fake prom” while the rest of her class partied at a secret location at an event organized by parents.

McMillen tells The Advocate that a parent-organized prom happened behind her back — she and her date were sent to a Friday night event at a country club in Fulton, Miss., that attracted only five other students. Her school principal and teachers served as chaperones, but clearly there wasn’t much to keep an eye on. […]

Last week McMillen asked one of the students organizing the prom for details about the event, and was directed to the country club. “It hurts my feelings,” McMillen says.

Two students with learning difficulties were among the seven people at the country club event, McMillen recalls. “They had the time of their lives,” McMillen says. “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].”

JESUS CHRIST.  Are they really that worried about Teh Gay rubbing off on them?  How do these people sleep at night?

    Nothing like teaching your young adults sanctioned public bigotry at one of the most impressionable times in their lives. Way to clear an ethical path to joining the KKK, Itawamba parents. Go Itawamba Agricultural High Indians!

    here’s the list of assholes who were in charge of this whole shenanigan: the principal and the board members….
    I already e-mailed them a tirade of how they really ought to read the bible and learn about Jesus… Very very uncharitable of them! And what boorishness! Did they think they would actually get away with it? Did they think the girl wouldn’t find out???
