’90 Percent’ of Constance McMillen’s Classmates Hate Her

Prom queen Constance McMillen, who still doesn’t want any of you throwing her a prom, stopped by the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center yesterday because everybody loves this girl. Already a media darling, she was a natural in front of the crowd, giving As to your Qs (except the one about her girlfriend; privacy please!).

None of her classmates ever targeted Constance for being a lesbian, she says. At least not to her face. Now they’re “freaking out on me.” And “ninety percent of the student body hates me right now. … They’re not gonna be nice.” Sad.

Not sad: Constance’s committment to changing minds in her home state of Mississippi, where she’ll remain after graduation (she’s going to the University of Southern Mississippi).

    Then 90% of her classmates are complete fools.

    why would someone call this stupid?

  • terrwill

    @unclemike: Co-sign……..Out of that 90%, I would guessstimate 89% won’t attend college, nor earn more than $20,000.00 in any year of their lives, and will consider their lives a smashing success if and when they are finally able to rent a double wide mobile home on cinder blocks on the first row of the trailer park…… : p

    Constance: Revenge is a dish best served cold, please place heaping helpings on those scumbag haters plates.

    Then they DESERVE to have their prom cancelled!

    @terriwill: I understand the point you were making, but keep in mind there’s many LGBTQ citizens out here making *less* than $20K/year right now. And attending college is a privilege (or only a dream) for some of us, not a right or a confirmation of intelligence.

    That said, I think Constance will like USM. It’s a good school, there’s a lot of good opportunities there.

    @unclemike:

    Funny, I was coming in here to call them assholes. You were kinder.

  • terrwill

    @trickstertara: True, but it is sooo much fun to poke fun at the haters sometimes…………..

    And stats do prove that a higher percentage of Gay students attend college and earn substantially more thru their lives than their straight counterparts. So being Gay does pay off!!

    @terrwill: Ummm… what “stats” are you talking about? ’cause the ones I’ve seen say just the opposite.

    GLSEN’s School Climate Survey found that 9 out of 10 LGBT students are bullied and that those students are LESS LIKELY to go to college than their peers:

    Both the Task Force and the Wiliams Institute found that LGBT folks are more likely to live in poverty and make less money than their straight counterparts:

    So, no, sorry. Being gay isn’t a road to riches. Not in the reality-based world, at least.

    I think most of you hit it right on the head.

    Its a shame that high school students still don’t realize how utterly insignificant it actually is. Most of these lousy bitches that are complaining about not having a prom will be fat/pregnant/married to a fat jerk/miserable (or all of the above) within a year after high school so they have nothing to look forward to but an unhappy marriage, bratty spawn, and a tank ass and that’s what they are pissed about.

    Constance has so much more to look forward to!

    Now her classmates are just jealous of the press she’s getting; another reason they’re probably moaning the typical teenage mantra:”it’s just not fair!”
    Yes they DID deserve to get their prom cancelled and to see their jealous hearts turn green with envy as Constance turns up on Ellen, news shows, Leno, whatever. This is the best abstract form of justice I can imagine: Constance is flown from interview to interview while the rest have to slog on thru their last few months of High School.
