From CBS: "Senior Constance McMillen, 18, was ready for the prom. She even had a date. But the problem at Itawamba County Agricultural High School, says Strassmann, was her sophomore -- girlfriend."
So what did the high school do? They cancelled prom. Now this girl's school mates are pissed at her because they blame her for the prom getting cancelled.
Is this 1940? They'd rather cancel the dance and screw all the kids than let two girls go together as a couple.
We'll just slide this one in at number 22 on the long list of reasons I could never live in the south.

Drummed Out of the Air Force by the Local Fuzz
Rapid City, SD police outed a lesbian Air Force sergeant to the military resulting in her getting discharged.
The cops were looking to arrest Sgt Jene Newsome's wife on an Alaskan warrent for theft. Sgt. Newsome didn't give the police the level of cooperation they were looking for, so they told the Air Force base command that the Sgt was married...to a woman.
"Police officers, who said they spotted the marriage license on the kitchen table through a window of Newsome's home, alerted the base, police Chief Steve Allender said in a statement sent to the AP. The license was relevant to the investigation because it showed both the relationship and residency of the two women, he said."Saw it through a window? It was just sitting on the table? I know that's where I keep mine, right next to the salt and pepper shaker.
I call "bullshit" on this one. They were pissed that the lesbian wasn't helping them so they screwed her over with the military. I hope the ACLU really porks these cops in court.
