Hmm. Why does this story sound so familiar? Teen? Prom? Tuxedo? Prom cancelled? All this same stuff played last year, though it actually was prom season last year. They are jumping the gun with it this year. I smell political indoctrination.

That is something some people don't realize. When they try to force changes on the world, they harm a lot of people. They don't get to selfishly latch onto what belongs to others, but instead end up ruining it for everyone. We are running into such mess because a few people decided to try to improve on nature and traditions. And it is because we have such a rights and pleasure oriented society, rather than an obligation and responsibility based one.

The problem is she DEMANDED it.

A girl wearing a tux to prom would just out-class the majority of girls from that region attending prom barefoot, pregnant, and/ or, wearing overalls!

Do you suppose the outcome might have been different if she hadn't 'demanded' her rights?

I'm thinking no, but was just wondering.

It does not improve on nature. It is a perversion of nature. Simple. Keep it behind your doors and do as you please. Attempt to force it on society and reap what you sow.

Had the girls simply went "without" dates, none of us would even be reading about this. Instead she "demanded" she be allowed. When you shove something down someones throat, expect to get a negative response.

The school ruined prom for everyone. They canceled prom because they knew that if they let this become a court case, they would lose. And that is because their policy is discriminatory. I'm sure proms in the south were canceled in past decades because a black person and a white person wanted to attend as dates. The school is at fault here. Entirely.

Yes it DOES matter to those of us who don't want our children to think that homosexuality is acceptable behavior.

I had a friend go to prom with another girl... She wore a tux and they were adorable together. Stop being so blind people! Homosexuals are NOT a problem with the world! Don't worry about what other people do in the bedroom... You should have your own sex life to worry about :)

Good. It is about time someone took a stand for this type of indecency and put the quietus on it!

For all of you out there; straights and q¨eers: It is called the motel room. Get one and stop the tacky personal displays of affection or "raunchy shock value."

There was a time when people didn't put up with this type of bullsheyet!

The bible bigots in Mississippi are still living in the dark ages. Good for her for standing up to this stupid bigotry.

For years the Prom night would end in a motel room and underage alcohol. That's OK because the typical person thinks in the terms, tab A fits lot B. then every one wonders about teen pregnancy. Hey that's the Idea when I went to school. I am not gay, but if I were I would hope that I would have the balls to invite the one I love and the one I want to be with would be accepted. I know what I am about to say sounds like hippy speak, but what is so wrong about loving someone else?

Why should only lesbians not be allowed dates? Then nobody else should have been allwed dates then either. Shove your irrational post down your own throat you fool.
