No Gays, No Prom

I don't know what's worse about this story: the fact that a Mississippi high school thought it was OK to mandate in advance that students have only opposite sex dates to the prom or that school officials are so homophobic they actually CANCELED prom instead of allowing a same-sex couple to attend.

She never meant to be a spoiler for others when she sought approval to bring her girlfriend and wear a tuxedo, she said. She thought she was doing the right thing by asking in advance, since the school had stipulated in a February memo that dates must be of the opposite sex. Rather than give her permission, the school canceled the prom.
