Aren't there federal laws against this kind of nonsense?

No, it's not, and I for one would be happy to see it stamped out altogether. Up until quite recently, we didn't even HAVE "proms" at school. The only proms we had were a lot of homosexuals in the Albert Hall, waving flags and singing Rule Britannia.

Does this somewhat explain my occasional hatred of religion?

This is the American South. It is what it is. When I was a teenager, a black kid showing up with a white kid would have been a scandal.

If you didn't have proms, how did the prudish girls ever lose their virginity? :?

The painful part is that thinking beings have to grow up in this environment. Despite most evidence to the contrary, it isn't only full of mouth-breathing idiots.

For a constitution so centred around individual freedoms, there's not much of it is there.

Not for queers, darlin'. And lookit, they done gone and ruined the prom for all those good kids. And that's how it will play, btw. It isn't that this (incredibly brave) girl was discriminated against by a bunch of bigots. The problem is that she couldn't just stfu and act right so that her classmates could have their prom. She had to go and make a spectacle of herself. Demanding special rights and all that.

This from a state with the highest teen pregnancy rate of 2009. I bet a lot of babies are made on prom night in Mississippi. Honestly, that state could do with a few more gay teenagers. Either that or stop with the whole bible-belt abstinence-only sex education. But nooooo....it's more fun to demonize the gays than worry about what their heterosexual teenagers are doing.

On the bright side, they do make North Carolina look better by comparison. I appreciate them for that.

Loada shit. :P That said, I do wonder what would have happened had their been an out gay couple at our prom. I don't think there were that many couples at all.

They'd have gotten the shit kicked out of them at our prom. Actually, the one gay guy (as far as I know) in my grade went alone. I saw him later that evening getting all manner of fucked up while he raged about not being able to bring a date. I'm not sure how much better things would be at my old high school even now. Not only was he gay, but he was also intelligent. To say that he has a chip on his shoulder about high school is putting it mildly. I saw him at a high school reunion not so long ago, and though he brought his boyfriend and everyone was mature about it, he was still pissed.

The rural south is a fucked up place for a gay teenager.

No doubt. The one out gay kid in my year went with about eight girls but that's nothing unusual. :P He was mercilessly bullied all through the first few years, then when he started saying yes if asked if he was gay he was left alone. :lol:

The same way all of us did. Getting fingered on the coats to Spandau Ballet.
