    Another small step towards getting rid of bigotry and discrimination. Well done to Constance for stepping up to the plate.

    Yep- that ought to pay much of her college tuition, depending on where she goes. Good for her- she deserves it after all that crap.

    Good for her. My only complaint is I wish there had been some nod to the "special needs" kids who got shunted off to the fake prom with her. Much as I felt for what was done to McMillen, that part was just about as low and disgusting as I can imagine. It really showed the quality of people involved.

    Oh- those people are going to have to live with what they did for the rest of their lives. Some of them won't care. Others will regret it forever.

    Yes. It's good to hear. And some people in this forum thought we wouldn't be talking about this for this long.

    It doesn't answer why she should get equal rights just because she's gay.
