Pretty conservative attitude coming from a resident of a state that has the most known Gay/Lesbian people "out in the open" in the country. What an ass you are. Plenty of Non-Gay people aren't mature, and never become so. Go Constance, I hope you get a bundle!

Is there a grand jury to be convened? If not, I recommend we appoint an independent counsel to investigate. As long as we keep farting around, not only will nothing get done but the proportion of tuna melts being served at local diners to the number of local women will remain unclear.

I hope the national support she got from her community results in the homophobic bigotry being the best thing that ever happened to her.

And what guts she has.

Someone said that those who attended this alternate prom were so jaked when they showed up that all of them blew lunch. That's the main problem with all of this nonsense. Instead, of yoga or meditation to find inner peace, they're all praying to the god of porcelain.

Right, this was nothing more than a "look at me" attention grabber. She was after money all along and suckered the gay supporters in and used them. Now gay hugs for everyone! LOL!

Tough sht, bigot(s). The days when public schools and other bigoted institutions could discriminate without consequence are ending right before your very, bigoted eyes.

This was about equality, not money, but now that this girl's civil rights have been trampled, I'm delighted that she's filed suit and hope she wins and wins big. No law shut down the Klan, know what shut down the Klan? One woman with guts suing them and bancrupting them.

A despicable, hateful lie. This was NOTHING more than an ordinary high school kid wanting to go to the prom. If they'd let her, none of us ever would have heard of this girl or this town.

"She was after money all along and suckered the gay supporters in and used them."

Lie. NOBODY was used. This was NEVER about money until the district and town CHOSE to trample her rights. Now, she deserves it, and they deserve to be made to pay it.

Of course California is an extremely conservative state, contrary to the image, and if you can't stand "wasting" money on this "crap," STOP DISCRIMINATING. Problem solved.

"Of course California is an extremely conservative state?" Once again, clearly you have no idea what the hell you're talking about. But I do give you credit for making a fool of yourself yet again by your ignorance.

Hardly seems like humiliation when she gets to be on national TV to get a scholarship from Ellen and also gets to be the grand marshall at the Gay/Lesbian Pride parade and, as you mentioned "national support from her community." You also said it was "the best thing that ever happenned to her." So, this "best thing that ever happenned to her" is damaging and humiliating?(That's what "damages" are alleged to address and redress.)
