Homosexuality: The old/new disease?

While doing some morning looking up of news (No tv so have to do it manually) I came accross this article that was simply too much.  I must share it…Its that good.

Summary: Senior Constance McMillen of Jackson Mississippi, requested to bring her girlfriend to prom and be able to wear a tuxedo.  The reprecussions? Prom was cancelled. The school will not agree that this was a realiation effort on their part but going as far as to say:

“It is our hope that private citizens will organize an event for the juniors and seniors,” district officials said in the statement. “However, at this time, we feel that it is in the best interest of the Itawamba County School District, after taking into consideration the education, safety and well being of our students.”

After taking into consideration the education, safety and well being of students whatttttttttt?Lets break this down shall we?

Education: they are taking into consideration the students education? However it is too much that the students be well rounded individuals that understand the concept of homosexuality? Shit, I feel sorry for those students when they hit college, can you spell rude awakening?

Safety and well being: I lump these two together because they are so similar in meaning.  I am still confused as to why safety is an issue though…Is it because maybe the students poor little impressionable minds that have been molded by “proper” society may be tainted? I mean that would be horrible, we wouldn’t want anyone that doesn’t agree with the starche, conservitive views, that is perhaps a free thinker… *rolls eyes* Or is it because they think that the lesbians are sexualy depraved animals that are going to prey on the other innocent students? *gufawwwww* OR it could be the old standby that homosexuality is a disease….beware you don’t want to catch it! I mean it has been out of the Phsyciatiric books for ages, but we are talking about Mississippi bible belt here some of their beliefes are positively archaic.  I think Hooker(1957) was the first and tests and studies have been done since in the same manner, to show that homosexuality is not a clinical entity and that homosexuality is not inherently associated with psychopathology.

This article was positively ridiculous! I mean this school boards acts like Homosexuality is a disease, they really do and they are punishing all of the students simply because they feel they cannot allow it.  They are going to hurt this girl more than they know (all her classemates will despise her for “ruining” their night) and they are hurting the future generation! It would be good for highschool kids to see  a homosexual couple (especially when they come from such a conservative town) I wish I had been in a more well rounded environment when I was in highschool.  This school board is completely of their rocker if they think that cancelling prom is required simply because a girl wants to wear a tux and dance with another girl.  What, in all reality would it hurt?
