Unless you've been out of the country (possibly on the moon), you've heard about Constance McMillen, the lesbian student whose simple request to bring the date of her choice to prom resulted in a bigot freakout for the ages in which the Itawamba school board cancelled prom altogether. The school board's theory was that since they can't discriminate against LGBTs, but a private organization can, they'd let a private organization take the reigns of discrimination.
The American Humanist Association has stepped into the breach and will be providing a bigotry-free prom for everyone, hilariously not what the school board had in mind, but exactly what they asked for. Go atheists!
I hope everyone who attends has a wonderful prom. To Constance, I would like to say that your courage and honesty is inspiring and I hope you apply that same attitude to everything you do in life, because that will make the world a better place for us all.
