That's about all I have to say about this (h/t: Andy Towle at Towleroad):

The prom the school district promised at the country club in Fulton was a ruse. Only seven kids, Constance, and her date showed, and at the same time, everyone else held a "real" prom at a secret location out in the county. [...]

The school represented that Constance was invited [to a parent-sponsored prom] 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 Constance's request for a preliminary injunction that she could go to the prom.

The school reneged, or possibly didn't ever intend to follow through on its representations to the court.

If you're not familiar with Constance McMillen's battle against discrimination at her high school, visit the ACLU. The Advocate has an update from her:

"They had two proms and I was only invited to one of them," McMillen says. "The one that I went to had seven people there, and everyone went to the other one I wasn't invited to."

Some people are demonstrably unfit to be involved in educating children. Members of the Itawamba County School District should be ashamed of themselves.

All I can say is that I feel for Constance and I hope all those parents who organized the event burn in hell (the special hell that I thought up for 'em :D ).

What were they thinking? That she wouldn't find out about the other one? How stupid and juvenile can an adult get?
