Well last year a lesbian brought her girlfriend to our school’s prom. The two of them danced in a wildly disgusting an insanely sexual way that made everybody sick. They were completely hideous so… Anyway, the same year a guy showed up in a dress as a gag. A girl, following the tradition of her elder sisters, also showed up in a tux. (In fact it was her big sister who gave the guy, a dude I know who’s actually straight…or so he claims) the idea.

The dress started up a big fuss and they booted him. Then the girl in the tux. Nobody was really bothered (The dress was a tit squeezer cleavage dress. It was really gross on that big old hairy guy, specially when he got all sweaty on the dance floor. The tux wasn’t gross at all, hardly even a distraction..) So any who’s the girl stayed in the place and wasn’t harassed for it until some guy got mad and called the principle sexist. He was promptly booted and given detention. Nobody else protested to her, but we all complained about it.

Well about this time the lesbians show up. Didn’t bother anyone, except they were gross. But in their defense it was a bad song choice and straight couples were dirty dancing too. The lesbians were allowed to stay through prom but this year no homosexual couples were allowed. The principle threatened with expulsion. Same with guys in a dress. She’s allowing girls to wear tuxes. Which isn’t actually sexist in my opinion, because like I said. A hair dude in a dress is a distraction. A girl in a tux is a novelty.

The principle defends herself saying that, “Prom isn’t about love it’s about tradition. The tradition is for a boy and girl to go together.” She says that she is not restricting peoples sexuality, but demanding that aged traditions be respected.

I think this is a poor cover up. Prom was a while back, and I had meant to make this thread then, but it slipped my mind and I was just reminded by another thread. I dunno, I think they may have abolished the rules for next year, but one way or another the bigotry was very present this year.

What do you think, CR?

It's a prevalent pattern. For example, if a 3rd grade class was performing The Wizard of Oz and a little girl wants to be The Cowardly Lion, no problem, that's so cute. But if a little boy wants to be Dorothy, then haha Timmy, that's a girl's part silly, wouldn't you much rather be The Tinman?

Actually there is only a small-small-fraction of us Christians here. Believe it or not but most of the Christians here are protesting against this thing. Of course we have a few of those types who are solid to the old testament and thus strongly apposed to this, but they’re not being extroverted like the other groups. (Probably because they are Christians. After all, if an atheist says he thinks gay people shouldn’t be allowed at prom it’s a politically incorrect but welcome opinion. If a Christian says it he’s an ignorant jackass who doesn’t deserve to live because Christians are the bane of the world and we’re all evil maniacs of hypocritical and judgmental judgment. Which is hilarious because in saying that people are judging Christians for being judgmental and hypocritical, which is in itself hypocritical.)

Anyway the school is dominantly against the rule. Now obviously there are more non-Christians on both sides because there are only a few Christians anyway, but more Christians are standing up for the lesbians and for the dude than not.

Again, I think the decision about the dress is completely understandable. I explained why above.

Yeah, and girls can wear jeans but guys can’t wear dresses and all that grade school jazz. Don’t you know? It’s wrong to be sexist…unless you’re sexist against men. Wrong to be racist…unless you’re racist against whites. Wrong to religiously discriminate…as long as you do so against Protestants, Catholics, Jews, or Muslims. Try and touch the Witches and Atheists (Which, atheism isn’t a religion, but you get my point.)
Don’t believe me about that last one?

Though, it seems that sexual preference doesn’t follow this continuity of hypocritical prejudice. Nobody discriminates against whites… Then again you’re allowed to have Gay Pride radio stations on AOL radio but not Straight pride.

Which, by the way, I don’t have AOL but I used to. When I was younger I had that teen net thing and they had forums. There was a forum for girls but not for boys. Which, also makes sense to me. Scanning through the girl’s forum they had nothing but a bunch of mellow dramatic gossip. If you get a bunch of guys amalgamated on the internet it’s just going to turn into a bunch of profanity and sex talk. Ah yes! The moron teenage boys I’m associated with! The very reasons men pay more car insurance than women, and why women can get loans easier, and why women get a minority donation from the government when they are trying to start a business but men get nothing.

Case and point: Sexism is around us no matter what. I believe it will slowly shrink (though never vanish) as people start to see through the Femnazi tyranny. However, the cloths thing isn’t a big deal. If we want to fight discrimination against men then we don’t need to waste time with child’s debates. Nobody is hurt by the cross dressing double standard. There are bigger fish to fry, if you will.

P.S: We should also fight sexism against women, but sexism against men is much bigger in this world because it is politically acceptable.

Pshh... there were tons of male and female couples who went to prom together as friends. Not because they were homosexuals... its because they didn't wanna go stag.

Forget it, let them wear what they want...it's a free country. Every man has the right to pursue their happiness...So if they want to, let them be gay and wear dresses. I think laws that deny you your happiness (which doesn't harm others) is a bad law. The greatest laws are the laws that can make the greatest number of people happy.

I don't think they should discriminate. But if they are dancing in wildly sexual manners then they should leave. About the cross dressing thing. If it was a gag then there is no problem with it, but if a guy comes wearing a dress because he wants to, then I would probably puke. . .

What back water town do you live in exactly SeraphAlford ? That would never happen in Las Vegas, ever. Thats some of the biggest load of bullshit I've ever heard. Tradition.. between a girl and a boy. It's for two PEOPLE to go to and enjoy themselves and make memories. Ugh, I would have left in protest.

Sad thing is I live in a pretty big city. Thing is, I also live in Oklahoma so... But, before you get the cross burning KKK rednecks in your mind, it's not some white settlement race war down here. In this part of the city (I wont be specific because that's not safe) there are more Mexicans than blacks and more blacks than whites.

No the prom you can take anyone. Friends, girl/boy friends, your third cousin, some random bum of the streets if they are within the age limit.

discrimination. no matter how it's rationalized or justified, it's discrimination.

that principle's a bitch and should be reported to whatever board is responsible in that city for hiring her. anonymously send your original post in an e-mail to them and see what happens.

You were quite perceptive in seeing past her stupid "tradition" reasoning. If it were about tradition then the cross-dressing guy and cross-dressing girl would've been left alone, according to her rules that "The tradition is for a boy and girl to go together." She's bullshitting everyone and getting away with it. She needs to be penalized for being a hypocritical liar. Not only does this incident show a surprising lack in judgement (i.e. taking her own beliefs and forcing them onto the students) but a surprising abuse of her position as proctor over the school as a place for learning, enlightenment, education, acceptance, and whatnot. Makes one wonder how else she's ruining your guys' high school experience. Definitely report her, or at least try to. or maybe send this post anonymously to several local newspapers. If she is adamant about her position on this obvious attempt at discrimination, she should easily be able to answer any burning questions that others might have for her.

Ugh... this is disgusting... im feeling pissed off just thinking about it. Reminds of the hypocritical fuckups that used to run my highschool. Stuffing lies down our throats and then acting all high-and-mighty. Sickening twats. I remember once during Indian independence day (i went to an Intl school in India. we had a ton of korean, australians, tibetans, bhutanese, indian, bangladeshi, u name it students) and this one prof went up infront of th whole assembly and started giving a speech about how lucky the indians should feel becuz their govt cares abt them unlike the king and govt of bhutan and tibet. He went on with this theme for about 10 minutes, not talking abt how great India is mind u (as i expect one would during an indian independence day speech) but instead insulting and outright lying about another, unrelated nation. We were all pretty pissed to say the least and even lodged an official complaint against the guy for publicly slandering our countries. Ofcourse our wonderful dean just laughed it off saying it wasnt that big a deal and we shouldnt make a fuss. She refused our request for a public apology and retraction even though we had 1-2 staff members on our side. She however made a huge fuss wen some deranged individual decided to leave a crap in the toilet wit a sign saying "Canadian Chocolate" above it. She talked about in several assemblies over the next 2 months and went to great lengths to find the culprit. Needless to say she was a canadian.

Similarly our school was described as a "Christian-Multicultural school". Thats part of the name. however during one a Hindu holiday (Lord Ganesh's Birthday) a girl wanted to announce it as part of the assembly. A 20 second announcement thats all. But the dean forbade her from doing so becoz it wasnt christian. So much for the multiculral bit eh?? Forget celebrating different cultures, they refused to even acknowledge it!! Wen she made the announcement anyway she was penalized. (given detention and a Stage [similar to academic probabtion])

In the end theres no point believing in the ppl in power. Theyre just out to further their own goals.

Most of my friends are gay. They like to tease me that the only reason im still straight is because of my boyfriends penis. Im bi curious. I don't think there is anything wrong with PDA even if they're gay. In fact, im more grossed out by straight peoples PDA.
My two friends went to prom together, and they're Lesbians. No one complained there, maybe cause one of them looked like a boy and the other the way she dresses, but it could be because in Hawaii, everyone is opened about their sexuallity. In my school, a lot of guys and girls freely express their sexuallity. They hold hands and kiss and all that kind of stuff. We even had a gay prom night (not at our school) somewhere on the island. All my gay friends went.

FREE COUNTRY NEW WORLD!!!!!!!!!

I don't see why people just can't accept change. why can't we just accept it like Canada and other countries did? there is no way that you can change someones preferences. Plus it could be hereditary so this can be the fault of those trying to protest.
