commented on Anti-Gay Bigots at High School In Indiana Can't Ban Gay Kids From Prom...
I live in Sullivan, and I am beyond disgusted at the ignorance of a few in our community! I am sad that THIS is how Sullivan has hit the map! We have a LOT to be proud of, but this is not it! What I want everyone to know is, only a handful of people in Sullivan County support this discriminatory outcry against LGBT... most of us are very supportive of an inclusive prom and are not judgemental! I commend our school officials for not being bullied into denying the petition (although it shouldn't have taken a petition for same sex couples to be present at Prom)! I suspect that these parents aren't trying to give their children the prom their children want, but are trying to give their children the prom they want FOR their children! I graduated from SHS in 1984 and I can tell you, I can name MANY kids that went to school from 1980 -1984 that were "out". It isn't looked down upon as much as you would think... just because we are a small town, doesn't mean we aren't open-minded... well MOST of us!
