Derrick Martin Is 18 and Already a Better Human Being Than His Parents, School Administrators

It’s getting really annoying that young Americans continue disproving our theory that they are whiny, self-entitled stains on society. Like Derrick Martin here, the 18-year-old Georgian high school senior who battled to take his boyfriend to the prom, won, only to get kicked out of his parents’ house because of all the media fracas. Speaking of media fracas? The above interview.

Derrick? It’s folks like you, and Constance McMillen, and Cynthia Stewart, who are our heroes. Meanwhile, it’s your your high school administrators that need educating — even Derrick’s, whose school district says they’re only letting him take a gay date because they don’t have rules to prohibit it, and not because they “approve” of any particular “lifestyle.”
