<quoted text>What's courageous about running around screaming to everyone how you like to have sex and everyone has to care because it's your "identity"? So you're a homosexual, BFD, it doesn't make you special.
Sue me.
Maybe your relationships involve nothing but sex, but most people have relationships based on love, commitment and mutual support.
As for your comment,'it doesn't make you special', that is precisely the point: the lesbian couple wants the same treatment as any other couple. Instead, they are being singled out for 'special treatment' in the form of discrimination, prejudice and exclusion.

The student body elected this couple to be Snow Days royalty. The student body obviously has no problem with these two girls. For the school board to not allow them to walk in as a couple (like every other couple in every other Snow Days coronation) and to say that "it might make some of our students uncomfortable" as a justification for the outright discrimination is deplorable.
This is a school dance, for fox' sake, not the final pairing off of couples boarding Noah's ark. There will be chaperones present at the dance and all the students will be dressed. I don't know what sort of sinister or inappropriate things they suspect these two girls will do, but my advice to any student or teacher who feels uncomfortable seeing two girls (or two guys) walking hand in hand, would be to stay home. Obviously, the student body that voted them in didn't have a problem with them.
I wish the girls good luck, on behalf of all gay students who will follow in years to come in that school district. Indeed, for all gay students everywhere who are to be treated equally under the law but are still treated like dirt by their school boards.
Well said, Zen!

I suppose the lesbians will also sue the district because the sex ed program spends more time educating students on how a condom is required for sex because it captures sperm thus preventing pregnancy, and not an equal amount of time explaining the safe lesbian sex.
Think I am joking?
The slipery slope of PC it will be our down fall!

Why not just cancel the whole thing?
Homosexuals just want to wreck everything for everyone else, just cancel it and avoid their lawsuits. Of course, they would sue for that too.
If a homosexual screams Look at me! I'm gay!!! Look at me and how gay I am!!! and you don't look, they'll sue.
I'm so sick of them.
Someone missed the shortbus.

These dumb girls just want attention and a lot of dumb people brought this on by lumping sexual orientation in to the same category as race and gender. Your sexual orientation is a choice and nobody needs to know about it. Everyone involved needs some sense slapped into them. These girls are also too young to know if they are gay or not, they say they are gay to get attention and because they think it is cool.

So, when you were in high school, you hadn't "chosen" your orientation yet? At what age did you decide you were straight?
