The Constance McMillen Fake Prom Thing

I must say that she is a brave and strong young lady, and I am sure she has a great future working for non-straight rights.

Two students with learning difficulties were among the seven people at the country club event, McMillen recalls. "They had the time of their lives," McMillen says. "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]."

So you discriminate against people with learning disabilities too?! Stay classy!

Confirmation of Bigotry
Fulton, Mississippi: Skeeviest town in America
Constance McMillen is an American Hero, but not her f*&king Town
Transphobia, too?!

The egregious hypocrisy of her classmates has skeeved me enough to where I feel like I must get their collected stuff on a page outside of Facebook (FYI: that page was created by bigots but was soon hijacked by Team Constance! YAY!) So here it is: The Greatest Hits of the Hypocrites!

What shocks me is that these people don't mind that their full, real names associated with hatred, and that their Facebook photos were not on enough privacy to stop the whole world from realizing that the private prom had happened, despite reports that it had been cancelled. Please note that I do not hold with slut-shaming (shaming and/or attacking a woman or a girl for being sexual, having one or more sexual partners, acknowledging sexual feelings, and/or acting on sexual feelings).
The only reason I am calling out these young ladies' attire, conduct on the dancefloor, and maternal statuses is the fact that it shows their pure hypocrisy. It's all too easy to target the lesbian for enforcement of your ancient religious text's rules, but it's quite another to actually live your life according to the many rules for living proscribed by that very same text.

Yes, it was religiously-motivated, at least in the eyes of some:

That sounds like a threat to me:

By the way, this young lady likes to argue on the side of the bigots and then claim to be a friend of Constance. On top of that, she's a single parent:

Now, this isn't to shame single moms, but if you're going to argue for the enforcement a dubious Biblical rule in your PUBLIC SCHOOL's prom, then please at least try to follow the same religion whose rules you claim to be enforcing on others.

Blaming the victim -- they cancelled it rather than allow for a girl in a tux and her date to come to the prom:

She obviously does not understand that situation, or does not wish to:

You might think that prom night is over, but the implications of your actions stand:

Poor straight kids! (not):

To any who still might use the "that was a party, Constance went to the real prom" argument:

The last line is what is meant by the phrase "tyranny of the majority." By the way, I hope they face consequences, but the way their area seems to function, there won't be much. They got their segregated prom in the end:

Booty grinding at the Holiest of Holy Proms. Remember, kids, this will live on in internetrnity:

And, the most egregious hypocrisy of them all -- girl on girl action! I guess Jesus only approves of it when both parties are sloppily making out and griding in feminine attire for the male gaze:

In conclusion, everyone at that "other prom" is culpable for the exhibition of homophobia and discrimination against people with disabilities that the "prom" was.
