It just wouldn't be fair to the straight kids not to have a prom at all, so some parents are taking action into their own hands. And of course the bitch isn't invited:
The school board's response states that parents have organized a private prom at a furniture mart in nearby Tupleo. Now that the school district has withdrawn from the event, any constitutional claims are irrelevant, Griffith wrote.[...]
On one discussion on an Internet bulletin board about the planned prom in Tupelo, a poster who identified himself as a junior at the high school said the prom would be "invitation only."
"Constance and her gay-activist friends will not be attending," he said. "They can go have their own prom because we certainly do not want any of them there."
The poster expressed frustration at the attention the issue had brought to the city of about 4,000.
"We have (television) newsmen at front doors of the school every freaking morning," he wrote. "They flag us down to interview us as we're coming and leaving school. I'm sick and tired of it. We are very traditional here so, personally, I think if Constance doesn't like it here, she needs to pack her stuff and move. No one even liked her here that much in the first place."
I'm sure it isn't fun to have the media there trying to interview people about the school board's homophobia, but, really, the community could direct its attention to the school board instead of blaming Constance. Then again, this is the mentality that keeps the right's victimology fueled: they always blame the person with less power in a situation since it's harder to take on people with power. It's a sheeple mentality.
