JACKSON, MS – A Mississippi county school board made a decision that has stirred up some serious debate. Ellen Degeneres is being reached to help!
The Itawamba School District announced Wednesday that it would cancel its upcoming prom after a gay student petitioned to bring a same-sex date to the event. Constance McMillen, 18, is a senior at Itawamba Agricultural High School is the individual that sparked the school’s decision.
“Due to the distraction to the educational process caused by recent events, the Itawamba County School District has decided to not hots a prom at Itawamba Agricultural High School this year,” school board members said in a statement.
McMillen has challenged the school’s policy that prohibits her from bringing her girlfriend as her date to the April 2 prom and has enlisted the help of the American Civil Liberties Union. The union has strongly urged that school officials reverse the policy both on McMillen’s choice of date and attire. She also requested to wear a tuxedo to the event.
The school responded to these requests by suggesting that the community organize a private prom. “It is our hope that private citizens will organize an event for the juniors and seniors. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this causes anyone,” school officials said in a statement.
“Oh my God. That’s really messed up because the message they are sending is that if they have to let gay people go to prom that they are not going to have one,” McMillen responded to the announcement. “A bunch of kids at school are really going to hate me for this.”
According to Christine Sun, ACLU’s senior attorney on gay rights, the ban on same-sex dates is a violation of McMillen’s constitutional rights. “We believe the law is pretty clear,” she added. “The school just can’t arbitrarily say you have to bring an opposite date to the prom.”
Supporter for McMillen and the case at hand have shown their support. They have started to reach out to Ellen Degeneres for help on the matter. Degeneres is an out and proud lesbian who has managed to bring awareness to gay rights. Fans are calling for Degeneres to organize a prom in this Mississippi area. The Ellen Degeneres Show is being inundated with emails regarding this matter and it would truly be a great story if Ellen Degeneres follow through with this.

  1. She made her "CHOICE". The community made theirs. Not everyone feels the same about so called gay rights, and the American Communist Lawyers Union is not a law enforcement agency, so their demands do not mean a thing. She chooses to live in a community that she clearly knows does not embrace her "CHOICE" to be gay. That is their right. This is just more liberal grandstanding. She thinks that she has problems now? Well she played the "ELLEN" card, and now the attempt to shame her hometown with media exposure will probably blow up in her face. This can only get worse. The logical choice would have been to live elsewhere, in a community that has more acceptance for that sort of thing rather than trying to ram it down their throats. But it is too late for that now. Just because a community doesn't support homosexuality doesn't make them evil………………………

  2. I see!!! I posted a comment last night, but it wasn't what you wanted to hear so you didnt post it. What were you expecting, a praise the gay community statement? I stand by my comments. Not everyone supports so called "GAY" rights. I condemn you for censoring those that do not follow lock step with your cheery little article. It is no wonder now why you were forced to stop printing your tabloid. I now know why many stopped buying it.

  3. How about going alone??
    And why aren't gay folks leaping with joy? The school board made a great decision.
    Until gay people can bring their dates, there will be no proms! Sounds good to me..

  4. If anyone sees this, don't bother to post unless you are pro gay. They will "NOT" publish comments that do not garner sympathy for this individual. They are using media manipulation to skew the truth……….. And to think that I used to buy this tabloid at my news stand. That is because it used to be the only source of true B.S. on the planet and that is why people bought it. It was humor. Now it seems that it is turning into just another liberal propaganda rag. I smell George Soros in this company somewhere.

  5. I think this is all done to distract us from the fact that WINSTON CHURCHILL, DWIGHT EISENHOWER participated in a UFO COVER-UP
