Lesbian panic victim invited to Potemkin Prom?

Check this out: the alternate prom that McMillen was invited to had seven developmentally disabled students while the rest of the school went to the real prom!

From BoingBoing this morning:

Remember Constance McMillen, the teenaged lesbian whose impending attendance at high school prom led school administrators to cancel it for everyone? The ACLU sued them and won, but it looks like the locals in Itawamba County, Miss., had a plan to end-run the ruling. They organized a private prom and invited her, but it turned out to be a fake: only a handful of students were in attendance. The real prom, to which everyone else was secretly invited, was arranged and held elsewhere. Neal Broverman of The Advocate quotes her: "They had two proms and I was only invited to one of them. The one that I went to had seven people there."
