Dear people of Fulton, Mississippi: You are the worst people in America. Really. You are just the worst.
All Constance McMillen wanted to do was go to prom. With her date. But no. That scared you so stupid that you had to collectively behave like complete assholes.
It's pathetic that all of Fulton, Mississippi seems far less mature than one teenage girl.
To avoid Constance McMillen bringing a female date to her prom, the teen was sent to a "fake prom" while the rest of her class partied at a secret location at an event organized by parents.
McMillen tells The Advocate that a parent-organized prom happened behind her back — she and her date were sent to a Friday night event at a country club in Fulton, Miss., that attracted only five other students. Her school principal and teachers served as chaperones, but clearly there wasn't much to keep an eye on.
"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."
It really is astounding that a group of people can be so terrified of a high school lesbian. But you, the people of Fulton, Mississippi - you are the worst people in America.Source.
