    And, strangely, it's not a Morrissey song ....

    Let the girl wear a tux, principal Jerkwad.

    People can be such uptight assholes. Not everyone is the same. Deal with it.

    The time that will be wasted...

    Let her wear it.

    Any school admin should know that you will lose most dress code arguments, especially the arguments that do not endager anyone or are not lewd in nature.

    I can never decide if these school administrators are just ignorant or if they have major control issues.

    A little bit from Column A and a little bit from Column B.

    A school district I am very closely related with thought it would be a good idea to force students to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance. That lasted for about six weeks until a pre-teen called them on it.

    You know, never mind the Supreme Court.

    I like the quote from the jerkwad who claims the girl wearing a tux would be destructive behavior in how it impacts other students. Yes. Because they've never seen a female in pants. Or a jacket. Or a shirt.... the horrors...

    They might catch the gay.

    It's good to hear the district might be willing to ease their stance on this matter, but I'm trying to understand the justification behind their initial ruling.

    And will someone please slap the holy hell out of this guy?

    Micah Clark, director of the American Family Association of Indiana, said he applauds the principal's decision because it mirrors the community's standards. Allowing a girl to wear a tuxedo to the prom, Clark said, could send a destructive message to other students.

    "I don't think we should allow kids to act out certain impulses," he said. "A girl in a tuxedo doing this as a sexual statement, that's something the school should draw the line at."

    Hey Micah! Unless this is your kid, aren't there other things you could be doing, like getting Teletubbies taken off the air?

    Yes. Everyone should follow the community standards.

    It's in the Constitution, dammit. We are a free nation. Free to be like everyone else and like it.

    Stop being so communist and socialist and be a free, skirt-wearing, freedom-loving, American.


    Free. Free. Free. Don't you know what that means. We fought for the right to all be alike. Killed a bunch of people not like us, too!!!

    Um, a girl in a spaghetti strap dress with boobies everywhere is also a sexual statement......if you don't want this girl wearing a tux because it sends a sexual statement.. then, well, is the only logical thing to do to not have proms, ever, because, you know, the teenagers might thinking about sex? Then we call all just be Baptists, because satan invented the dancing anyway?

    Heterosexual sex is only wrong in a wink-wink-nudge-nudge sort of way.
