Mississippi Burning Stupid

Fresh off the heels of the national disgrace revolving around Constance McMillen’s high school prom, Mississippi is at it again. If you remember, McMillen’s high school was run by hatemongers who could not tolerate a lesbian attending the prom with her girlfriend and dressed in a tuxedo, so they tried to exclude her. When the ACLU told them they couldn’t do that, they officially canceled the prom altogether. At least, that’s what they wanted us to think. Another prom was secretly organized that included everyone except McMillen and some other unpopular kids. This led to confusion as to who the adults really were in that school.

Well now yet another lesbian student, Ceara Sturgis, had her photo expunged from her high school yearbook because she was dressed in a tuxedo like a man. I guess there’s nothing Mississippi hates more than androgyny.

But that’s not all. Guess who’s coming to Constance McMillan’s graduation. If you guessed the Westboro Baptist Church planning to protest Constance, you’re absolutely correct!

And the children running Itawamba Agricultural High School better not complain about it either. As far as I’m concerned, the children running Itawamba Agricultural High School have no right to object to the Westboro Baptist Church. As bad as the WBC is, at least they’re honest. They never set up an elaborate ruse in order to break the spirits of a young girl. That’s beneath them.

    I fail to understand WHY so many remain so homophobic in today’s society as we have really come a long way in terms of tolerance. Well, at least that is what most like to believe anyway. I grew up gay in southern Mississippi and believe me it was not easy back in the late 70’s and early 80’s when gay kids had absolutely no support system of any kind. Nevertheless, we are what we are and it was NOT a choice to be what nature made us, despite how the idiocy of others seems to run rampant and Mississippi is no exception. I know, because I grew up there and the ignorance that some remain steadfast to defies all logic and reasoning. I mean, there are actually people in my own family (religious nuts that they are) who still actually believe that you get AIDS from hugging someone who has it. You can’t get any stupider than that and saddest part of all, despite all scientific logic and reasoning, you can’t convince them otherwise. As for the prom thing, well, I see no reason for others to have to suffer simply because most kids and especially gay kids, are now a generation of youth who are more well versed in terms of tolerance despite the fact that there will always be that one per cent (obviously who are parented by religious nuts/idiots) who completely defy the changing times. I mean, good gosh, nowadays there actually IS a high school specifically FOR gay kids in Dallas, Texas known as Walt Whitman High School!
    Admittedly, Mississippi really is and remains, unfortunately behind the times BY CHOICE yet they continue to argue that our homosexuality is a choice when in fact it is not. Why would anyone, in such a pathetic place as Mississippi, “choose” to be something that way too many refuse to accept? The thing that is really so remarkable about the who situation is that it is two lesbians. If it were two guys they’d be making a bigger stink about it!! Yet we live in an, albeit strange society where the hetero majority seems to think that its soo “cool” for two chicks to be gettin it on but when its two guys, everyone wants to fuss, fight, and gay bash about it. Talk about double standards, jeeze!!! Yet Mississippi seems to be even more behind the times. When I was growing up gay there, the very thought of such a thing might have been only thought of but it was totally unheard of actually pursuing the idea of same sex “couples” attending prom. But the fact that the administration had to make EVERYONE suffer by cancelling the prom altogether is even more outrageous and then for them to organize another prom privately and STILL exclude the gay couple is absolutely deplorable!!! MY MAIN THOUGHT IS THIS: PULL YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR ASSES, PEOPLE!!! GET RID OF DOUBLE STANDARDS ACROSS THE BOARD AND GET WITH THE PROGRAM OF CHANGING TIMES. WE’RE HERE, WE’RE QUEER, GET USED TO IT. GAY/LESBIAN PEOPLE DON’T LIKE THE HETERO LIFESTYLE SUPERIMPOSED ON US ANY MORE THAN YOU STRAIGHT PEOPLE LIKE TO HAVE US AND OUR WAY SUPERIMPOSED ON YOU!!! ITS FAR BETTER SO STRIVE FOR HARMONY AND TEACH TOLERANCE THAN IT IS TO STIR UP MORE CRAP MAKING OTHERS SUFFER WHO DON’T CARE EITHER WAY AND TO MAKE ALL THOSE KIDS SUFFER BY CANCELLING PROM ALTOGETHER IS BUT A CLASSIC EXAMPLE OF IGNORANCE AND INTOLERANCE TAKEN TO THE NEXT LEVELS AND BEYOND!!!
    GET REAL, PEOPLE, AND STOP LIVING MENTALITY IN THE MIDDLE AGES AND ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT ULTIMATELY, THE HOLES YOU TRY AND DIG FOR OTHERS, IN THE END, WILL BE THE SAME HOLES THAT YOU YOURSELVES WILL BE PUT IN EVENTUALLY “BECAUSE” OF YOUR TOTAL STUPIDITY!!! GROW UP AND GET WITH THE PROGRAM OF CHANGING TIMES!!!!!

    YA’LL need to shutup. The only gays in Mississippi are Yankees that came from up North! The reason we look stupid is because of the Niggers here. Mississippians can have just as much or more sense than YA’LL. The reason I say ya’ll in capitals is cause ya’ll say you all up there. I can’t help it if a lot of this generation is stupid, it takes the person, country or a yankee, to decide if they’re gay or stupid. Mississippi is a heck lot better than a lot of dedblame places up North.
