Eat this Mississippi bigots – the teenager you banned from the Prom gets a scholarship on Ellen

Constance McMillen, wanted to do what other young women in American schools around the Country. To go with her date to the Prom.

Constance is a young lesbian woman, who wanted to bring her grilfriend. The school said no.

The school board faced who then faced discrimination charges decided it would simply have no prom. If they couldn’t be bigoted they would simply be mean.

Well as a big screw you to the anti-gay bigots of her district, Tonic.com have given her a $30,000 contribution towards her continuing education costs and a scholarship in New York.

It does not make the decision of her school board any less disgusting. Her school board by doing this prove themselves to be nothing more than hate filled bigots. It does however show that not all minds are small minds and it proves that despite all the hateful right wingers shown on tv every day, as representatives of “American opinion”, there are individuals proud to stand behind those supporting justice and equality.

Ellen was right, this shy, very bright girl, who simply wanted to take her lover to the Prom, and who never wanted to be a “superstar” has a very bright future ahead of her.

I wish Constance every bit of luck for her future and thank her for the brave step she took in helping the fight for equality.

[Update – have a look what Perez Hilton is doing as well. Constance McMillen is off to Hollywood.]
