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.
Excuse me, for my English is somewhat inelegant. However, what is this jaked that you speak of? Is it some sort of deviant sexual practice that I am heretofore unaware of?

You go Gal! 20 years form now people will be looking back on the homophobic bigots with the same distance the sane and moral people look at the racists of the 60' 70's.

Southerners under thirty are more supportive of gay rights than the full demographics of Massachusetts - the state that polls most liberal and tolerant.

If she had any brains...she should have just shown up in her tuxedo, then this crap wouldn't have happened. Now, she's ruined the prom for everyone else. Whatever happened to the greater good? The school punished a lot of people for this one lesbian. How is this equality and fairness? What about the kids who lost out on their prom? Give me a friggin break.

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.
Equality? What about ALL the other kids that missed out on their prom because of her? This is about selfishness and arrogance as well as the money. All they other kids should be suing her and her parents for this travesty.

Yeah, next thing you know we'll bar braying xstain talibangelical bigot students from attending proms, because we know you "Christians" treat others as you would wish to be treated.

And we may well oblige you.

The lesbian teen didn't cancel anyone's prom.
If you're that upset about the prom, you lying, sexually disordered bigot, then you and your inbred friends should sue the party who did cancel the prom: The school principal.
She ruined it for everyone and made herself look foolish.

Your loquacious elegance and hate shine through once again.

And you wonder why nobody likes or believes you.

Hey you ignorant, lying pos, that's because the clear efforts to humiliate her by barring her from the prom and then trying to send her to a "special" prom with your family tree backfired.
It backfired because a lot of nationally known gay friendly people stepped in when they saw the rank bigotry, which you're always explaining away.
Now she's gonna sue and get a settlement to boot, and it will become harder for the next public school bigot-administrator to squelch any gay teen's rights.
So fck you.

Lie. Bigotry ruined it for everyone, and she made herself look like a hero by standing up for her rights instead of caving in to bullies.

NOBODY missed prom because of her, they missed out because of the bigots on the school board. She didn't make them cancel the prom, THEY did.

"This is about selfishness and arrogance as well as the money."

A despicable lie. This is NOT about selfishness, all she wants to do is go to the prom, like EVERY OTHER KID. There's nothing selfish or arrogant about it. It became about money only AFTER her rights were violated repeatedly, and she deserves every dime of it.

"All they other kids should be suing her and her parents for this "

Horsecrap. Sue her for WHAT?? Standing up for her rights? Next you'll say white people should sue Rosa Parks.

"travesty."

The way SHE was treated is a travesty.

Yeah. Poor girl had to suffer getting the attention she wanted, had to suffer being on national television to get a scholarship from Ellen, and had to suffer being the grand marshall at a gay pride parade where she got more attntion. How will the poor girl ever survive without getting a windfall in a frivolous lawsuit... and the attention she wanted in the first place?

Perhaps the real travesty is that she played the system (and people like you) perfectly.

I'm sure it seems that way to you, but to mainstream Americans, it is quite opposite. I am continuously surprised by the militance and arrogance by so many of the homosexual community. Has it not ever occurred to you that drastic and flamboyant exhibitions from anyone of any group only serves to alienate those that would happily tolerate, if not embrace? Taking this a step further, never ending demands for accommodations only generates more resolve within the heterosexual community to refute and reject.

You still don't get it. She made everyone elses prom into a media event and the other kids wanted no part of it. She is the public humiliation. She is a selfish little witch and so are you. You don't give a tinkers dam about the other 500 students. Now tell me the lie about equality
