Wow 3 in a row. Look fellas and fellets i cant help the way i feel about homos. Im even friends with a couple of gay folks but that dosent mean that i condone what they do. The bottom line is that she tryed to go against the rules and got bit. Maybe you dont agree with the rules but that dosent change them. If you want to change the rules go into politics.

Then your presentation is very far from what you intend sir, because that is EXACTLY how you are coming across.

Perhaps you would care to correct and elaborate?

You have no idea, in some ways that goods(aka gun rights, and privacy).

In others its decidedly a very BAD thing(equality).


So you are saying the YOUR rights trump everyone elses? The SC disagrees.

So you clearly don't like homosexuals, yet you claim you are friends with some?

How does that work? Did you tell them you don't condone what they do?

I "blabbed" all over school before special events such as dances prom or graduation, and bragged about what I intended to wear (or not wear).

So the only kid who does not have a right to run her mouth on what she is wearing (a decision that can take teen girls MONTHS and many hours of girlfriend convos) is the gay one.

The more I read of your answers, the more I disagree with them. What you are saying doesnt even make sense. Who doesnt run around blabbing when they are a teen?


You know hotbakedtater, I didn't even think of this angle. You're right, it shouldn't have mattered what in the world she was planning on wearing or doing. All the kids were more than likely going on about the big day and their plans for it. Kids will be kids.

It must have been the school board alone that took it to another level. Instead of just letting the kids have their day, they decided to take it away from them all to show everyone how utterly ignorant people can be. Let's make a mountain out of a molehill and rob the kids of their memories.

I don't get it. Was there no one on the school board with any common sense?

No, thet's the SC's job and this has already been decided.


If you want to change the rules go into politics.


Like I said, this issue has already been taken care of by politicians past. The rules are unconstitutional, thus ILLEGAL.

It's so funny to see all of you people blaming this girl because she wanted to stand up for herself and cause a stink about what she believed in.

Isn't that what we're kind of about here or am I mistaken? Question things. Don't fit the mold. Be different. Think outside the box.

Then all of a sudden you log on to this story, and everyone on here is saying to follow the rules (which were probably written in the last century) because it's what's best for everyone in this situation.

Goodness there sure are a lot of hypocrites around here...

Looks like picking and choosing to me.

Whats funny to me is even the school knows they don't have a leg to stand on...that is why they canceled the prom!


They didn't want her showing up in a tux or with a girl, but there is nothing they can legally do to stop her. However there is no law requiring a prom, see how this plays out?

The school board knows they would be screwed in a court.

Good, I hope you're forced to follow every single rule out there if you're such an adamant proponent of following rules. Say, are you at work right now? Because you're probably breaking a rule being on this site.

Please elaborate how believing in the right to self defense and privacy equates no equality for minorities or women?

That is some seriously flawed thinking friend...

Personally, I find anyone comparing this to Rosa Parks offensive FTR.

Peace

Homophobic behavior in high places! See what happens, the kids will not remember a prom and all the memories that accompany it. They will remember that it was canceled because of a lesbian couple. Absolutely awful if you ask me. Who doesn't want to see a lesbian couple? Just kidding.

Maybe I'm just not getting your post then. U2u me what you mean so we don't jack this thread.

I never would have guessed.

No one is asking for your permission, nor do they require it. Where on earth did this whole "I have to condone what you do, or you can't do it and you have no rights because you're a gay and blah blah blah I gotta protect heterosexuality" come from?

If its such a small and insignificant story, I find it amusing how many people are racing to the thread in order to support the school district.

Why? I see many similarities.

Fighting for equality is always the right thing to do, whether or not the public at large agrees.

African Americans fight, and have been fighting for equality since roughly 1860 in this country.

How is this not similar?

I see a young woman fighting for her right to be treated the same as every other student in her school. In this respect she IS the same as Rosa Parks, she was to be treated equally and fairly and not "pushed to the back" as it were.

Your stance seems the same to me, but I am still willing to listen.
