Don’t visit Fulton, Mississippi

Constance McMillen wanted to go to her senior prom with her girlfriend. Her school said no and canceled the event out of nothing more than pure bigotry. Upon the news, donations, scholarships, and invites to privately held, inclusive proms ensued. Soon a judge ruled that Constance’s rights had been violated, but he did not force the school to go forward with the prom for two reasons: 1) it was originally scheduled at a time too soon from when the ruling happened and 2) a private prom to which Constance was to be invited was being hosted. That didn’t stop her town of bigots from excluding her, though.

McMillen tells The Advocate that a parent-organized prom happened behind her back — she and her date were sent to a Friday night event at a country club in Fulton, Miss., that attracted only five other students. Her school principal and teachers served as chaperones, but clearly there wasn’t much to keep an eye on.

“They had two proms and I was only invited to one of them,” McMillen says. “The one that I went to had seven people there, and everyone went to the other one I wasn’t invited to.”

Last week McMillen asked one of the students organizing the prom for details about the event, and was directed to the country club. “It hurts my feelings,” McMillen says.

Two students with learning difficulties were among the seven people at the country club event, McMillen recalls. “They had the time of their lives,” McMillen says. “That’s the one good thing that come out of this, [these kids] didn’t have to worry about people making fun of them [at their prom].”

To make things worse, there’s actually a Facebook fan page called Constance quit yer cryin. Here are the sort of comments from her fellow students (comments that are now buried under posts from the decent people who have discovered this bigotry):

Mitchell Henderson: lulz rug munchers are hilarious. Come join me in hell, there’s ipods all around for dance parties. As long as you bring someone to scissor with.

Melody Carol: JAlthough, she asked and they said no, she should have just stfu and dealt with it. The school did not need to cancel the prom to shift attention from here. That’s just gay.

Brittany Kay Brown: jeremy, that’s your fault for not coming out of the closet. IAHS is not a bigoted school. This whole town is based on Christianity.

Caleb Waddle: i just wish she would shut up and quit makeing the freakin county stupid you say well its there fault but since when did the public do anything to you just shut the freak up already.

Traci Taylor: Carnathan who wants to c 2 girls makn out…especially one of them thats parents are totally against it.

A quick quack reminder

Every once in awhile I’ll get a notice from Facebook that some stupid shit got deleted for some stupid reason. In almost all cases, it comes back to Andreas Moritz (hi, Andy!*). He’s a quack. He wants money from sick people and that makes him a giant pile of shit. And just to compound the problem, he has no education in any science or medicine. (Hell, I doubt his education level exceeds the 9th or 10th grade. He’s a frackin’ moron.) And since he’s a greedy POS with no real education that takes advantages of the ill, I will sometimes reflect that on Facebook (though not as much as I do here). Recently, a few items were deleted from my Facebook fan page. Since there’s little rhyme or reason to which posts from here I stick up there, it’s nearly impossible to know just what was deleted; Facebook only told me “various posts”. I am, however, relatively sure that this one was deleted. I won’t know until they get back to me on my copyright appeal.

So since Moritz is actually thankful for all the attention I give him (which undermines his entire bullshit, charlatan threat of suing – because he’s just that smart), I thought I’d put out a reminder. And even if he isn’t the reason for the recent content issue, he’s still a greedy POS that takes advantage of sick people because he has no moral compass, so this is justified anyway.

*A double reminder: Moritz is obsessed with learning all about why he’s a quack, so he actually bothers to read FTSOS frequently, hence the greeting. Unfortunately, it’s likely he is seeking better ways of hiding his general evil from those he will harm with his ignorant, inane, sans all qualifications ‘advice’.
