commented on High School in Mississippi Cancels Prom to Prevent Lesbian Student from Bringing Female Date—and Potentially Incites Violence Against Lesbian Student
This is a copy of the e-mail I sent all of them. I kept to the high road.
Dear Ladies & Gentlemen of the Itawamba County School District,
Please reverse your decision to cancel the prom. A reversal of your decision would teach tolerance, character, and that it's never to late to change ones mind and admit one has made a mistake to the kids in your county.
It will also save your county a great deal of money spent on a law suit that could likely go all the way to the Supreme Court. Money, I am sure, that would be better spent on the academic needs of your students.
It's not too late to make this right.
