I guess my thing is, how are our kids supposed to learn to love and tolerate others regardless of their differences if our school districts can do this kind of thing and get away with it. Where were the parents and outraged groups on this? Maybe it's me, but I'm a firm believer that when injustice is blatant like this - action needs to be taken... Why weren't the students protesting this? I think the fact that no one made a big stink early on, upsets me more than anything...
They shouldn't have to look for someone to support them through all this, support should be coming to them. Our HS didn't allow for same sex dates or single people either, so I joined prom committee and together we decided that if we couldn't get rid of the rule, we would refuse to sell tickets to anyone... That's just the way things are - you support your fellow students and you rally around injustice... It upsets me that no one did this here!
