Can Mississippi high schools get no love from the ACLU? There was the Constance McMillen fracas that got Itawamba County School District to fork over $35,000 and institute a non-discrimination policy. And now the civil liberties group is going after the Wesson Attendance Center for excluding lesbian Ceara Sturgis’ yearbook photo where she sported a tuxedo.
(The school ended up printing yearbooks without even including Sturgis’ name.)
A federal lawsuit claims Sturgis’ rights under Title IX and the 14th Amendment were violated. At the very least, they could’ve printed the superlative “Most Likely To Sue.”
