High school senior Constance McMillen was denied a ticket to her prom. Why? Beacause she wanted to bring her girlfriend. The principal said that the prom was boy-girl only. The enraged senior brought this to the attention of the ACLU. The prom was cancelled at the school due to the threat of legal action.
The ACLU asked a judge to reinstate the prom, but he said that although Constance’s rights were violated when she was denied a ticket to the prom, there was nothing that said that the school had to have one. Constance attended an alternative prom at a country club but her girlfriend’s mother wouldn’t let her go, so she brought someone else. It turned out that the prom was a fake prom. Only 7 kids were there while the actual senior prom was being held elsewhere.
Recent surveys have been done and have revealed that nearly 15% of all teen girls consider themselves to be bis*xual or lesbian. Only 5% of teen males identify themselves as gay. Why are young girls three times more likely to come out and identify themselves than boys are? If you look at the music charts and celebrity interviews, there is no shortage of women identifying themselves as being bis*xual. However men, especially athletes, are very tentative about releasing this type of information. Why is it more accepted for women than it is for men?
If two women kiss each other, in front of other people, they may get a reaction but the reaction is typically neutral or even positive. But if it is two men kissing, they are not likely to get as positive a reaction as the women. In short, society seems to be more accepting of women being gay than men and that may explain why more women are likely to identify as gay or bi-$exual than men.
