ACLU Files Complaint Over 'Fake' Prom Thrown for Constance

The ACLU has filed legal papers with regard to the "fake" prom put on for Constance McMillen:

Constance "The American Civil Liberties Union filed legal papers today in federal court on behalf of lesbian high school student Constance McMillen regarding a cruel plan to put on a “decoy” prom for her while the rest of her classmates were at a private prom 30 miles away. The amended complaint alleges that the district's violation of the free speech rights of McMillen, an 18-year-old high school senior who sued her school for canceling the prom rather than let her attend with her girlfriend, have repeatedly caused McMillen to be humiliated and harassed...Today's amended complaint contains new details about events that have taken place since the ACLU first filed McMillen's case on March 11, including about the way her classmates have treated her. Most of McMillen's classmates no longer speak to her, and some have posted Facebook messages saying they wish she were dead and sent her such text messages as, “I don't know why you come to this school because no one likes your gay ass anyways.” In response to the court's March 23 order, the complaint also adds a request for compensatory damages for an amount to be determined later at trial.

  1. This school should be brutally and repeatedly mocked, its students, teachers and principals. Instead of just letting a girl bring another girl, which would have harmed nobody, they should now receive a relentless shitstorm.

  2. That school should be burned to the ground.

  3. Poor girl and the shit she has to put up with in Hillbilly Hills. May all her classmates grow up to be managers at McDonald's. I hate better-than-thou high school students.

  4. Really? A "decoy prom"? That doesn't even make sense. Did they think she wouldn't notice that NO ONE at the prom was from her school?

    And these are people who are school faculty with college degrees?

  5. Ideally, the board should have to pay financial damages and perhaps have to cancel the football program. That would be sweet.

  6. Her school and community acted childish; the ACLU is following suit.
