Lesbian Teen: School Sent me to Fake Prom

A lesbian student in Mississippi who sued her school for the right to bring her girlfriend to the prom said she was sent to a fake prom instead.

Constance McMillen, 18, told The Advocate that last month's invitation to an alternate prom was a sham, saying that most students attended another dance organized by parents at a secret location.

"They had two proms and I was only invited to one of them," McMillen told the magazine. "The one that I went to had seven people there, and everyone went to the other one I wasnít invited to."

"It hurts my feelings," she said.

Itawamba Agricultural High School cancelled its prom over the controversy sparked by McMillen's attempt to overturn the school's policy banning same-sex prom dates.

Las month, a federal judge ruled that the school district violated McMillen's constitutional rights, though did not reinstate the prom.

According to McMillen, the prom she attended was at a country club. She said of the five other students at the country club, two had learning disabilities.

"They had the time of their lives," McMillen said. "That's the one good thing that come out of this, [these kids] didn't have to worry about people making fun of them [at their prom]."

And it seems that school officials may have been in on all of this actively, and that they also misrepresented themselves in court:

This is all after the school district had represented to Judge Davidson that Constance was invited to a parent-sponsored prom to be held at Tupelo Furniture Market.  The school represented that Constance was invited in court filings, testimony, and representations by the school district and its lawyers.  In reality, Constance had not been invited, but, based on the representations by the district and its counsel, Judge Davidson denied Constanceís request for a preliminary injunction that she could go to the prom.

The school reneged, or possibly didnít ever intend to follow through on its representations to the court.  The parents didnít want Constance at the prom and didnít want to be sued (as they told the Clarion Ledger), and so on Tuesday announced the cancellation of the prom.

But what theyíd done was secretly relocated it.

Shortly thereafter, the schoolís attorney announced (on Wednesday) that ďthe promĒ was to be held at the Fulton Country Club on Friday.  But yet only seven kids showed up.

Meanwhile, thereís a rumor that school officials were directly involved in setting up the ďfakeĒ prom.

Wow, kudos to them for deceiving an 18 year old.  What a bunch of fuckwits.  Tupelo is night and day compared to where I live by the way you silly yankee.

Its stories like this that make me want to be a 18 year Lesbian avenger, exposing the dirty deeds off the Cruella,s and bringing untold joy to Constance.

I think they only burn crosses for male homosexuals down south . The clan probably thinks lesbian sex is hot enough without cross burning .
