The Buzz: Okay, the pretend competition between Georgia and Mississippi in the world of queer youth and proms just got closer. We learned this morning that students at Bleckley County High School in Georgia – where student Derrick Martin got permission to bring his boyfriend to the prom – organized a protest yesterday.
The Why: Were they protesting Derrick? No. That the school gave him permission? No. They were protesting the attention that has been brought to their town and school because “they don’t want Cochran to be known as a pro gay town.” The organizer of the protest, Amber Duskin, explained further “It’s also not just him bringing a boy. It was bringing all this attention to it.” But Ms. Duskin let a bit of her true colors show through when she also said “I don’t believe in going up there and dancing with gay guys like that.”
Oh good grief!
Can it get any more weird? Convoluted? Stupid?
What is it about an expression of love that leaves these people apolectic?
More and more, I see no hope for this race of critters.
