Mississippi School Wants to Ban Lesbian Student From Prom

From The Progressive Puppy:

An 18-year-old lesbian high school student is challenging a Mississippi school district policy that says no same-sex date at the senior prom.  Constance McMillen has enlisted the help of the American Civil Liberties Union after the district refused to let McMillen and her girlfriend arrive as a couple at the April 2 prom.  District officials also denied McMillen’s request to wear a tuxedo.  At issue is a memo issued to the Itawamba County high school students that laid out the criteria for bringing a date to the prom, and one requirement was that the person must be of the opposite sex.
